Balancing the agility of development with the delivery of a consistent, repeatable and timely infrastructure from Ops has proven to be one of the toughest hurdles to cross for any organisation focusing on adopting a true DevOps mantra.

Join us, to learn why these technologies matter, how they help to deliver the infrastructure of DevOps, and to see first-hand how to leverage the developer's tool belt of Visual Studio, GIT and Release Management; adding infrastructure as just another project within our solution.
