Episode 6 is here! This week Jack & Ryan are joined again by our friend & colleague April Edwards (Senior Software Engineer @ Microsoft) for her 2nd appearance at our user group, however this time virtually!
As a 3 we discuss why DevOps is not just for developers and how it is super useful for everyone in IT Ops or Sys Admin roles. We discuss what we all believe the definition of DevOps to be and what Microsoft define it as! As well as all of our journeys from on-premise infrastructure backgrounds to DevOps!
This is one certainly not to miss if your are hearing of Git, GitHub, Azure DevOps or DevOps in general but aren’t sure where to start, especially if your from an infrastructure background.
As always further information about the Sussex Azure User Group can be found on our website. We also welcome you to follow us on Twitter, LinkedIn & subscribe to our YouTube channel.
