This is applied on anything Rob comes across, whether it’s an application, infrastructure, serverless or Data Science environments. Additionally, Rob focusses on the management of production environments, including dashboarding, usage statistics for product owners and stakeholders, but also as part of the feedback loop to the developers.


Building an End-to-End CI/CD Pipeline in Azure DevOps

Time & Date

9:00, 24 March


Crowne Plaza Vilnius –
M. K. Čiurlionio str. 84, Vilnius, Lithuania



Learn how to setup a CI/CD pipeline in Azure DevOps, where we will push a simple webapplication into an Azure App Service. You’ll get hands-on experience because you will get to do all steps yourself! Team up with another attendee and create your first pipeline.

From there we will handle setting up a web application in Azure, connecting to that environment and pushing new releases when there are code changes available. You can also learn how to use the end-to-end traceability from Azure DevOps to keep an eye on the progress of your changes into the developement progress.

We’ll touch on a lot of DevOps principles and practices and you learn how to adopt them in your CI/CD pipeline.


Part 1: Azure and Azure DevOps introduction

  • Azure Hosting for our target application
  • Azure DevOps offering:
    • Azure Boards
    • Azure Repos
    • Azure Pipelines

Part 2: Build definitions

  • Elements of a build definition
  • Azure DevOps Agents
  • Hands-on exercises: create and run your own build definition

Part 3: Release definitions

  • Stages in a release definition
  • Hands-on exercises: create and run your own release
  • Create a pipeline with a build and a release

Part 4: Advanced pipelines

  • Extra verification during pull-requests
  • Powerful extensions to use
  • Hands-on exercises

The main goal of this workshop is to give the participants hands-on experience with the CI/CD concepts in Azure DevOps: what options are available to help you implementing some of the DevOps principles like for example: automation, four-eyes principle, deploy fast and often and with confidence.

Target audience

The target audience of this workshop includes those interested in DevOps tooling that can help them getting their code changes to production faster. We will be using Azure DevOps as an example how this can be achieved. No previous knowledge of Azure DevOps is needed, Some affinity with development in C# using Git will be very helpful, but is not required. This workshop has previously been given to business analysts and product owners as well as developers.

Technical requirements


  • All exercises can be done in a (modern!) browser
    • If you want to use your laptop as a workstation, then the following tools are recommended (note: a browser can be sufficient!):
    • A lab account will be provided for usage during the workshop

– Technical knowledge:

            – Affinity with (web)development will help, but is absolutely not required.
