WinOps 2019 - Octopus talk and workshop

Derek Campbell

WinOps London is happening on 23-24 September, and Octopus will be there! I’m excited to share that I’m leading a DevOps workshop and speaking about how to turbocharge Azure DevOps deployments with Octopus.

Turbocharging your CI/CD pipeline workshop

Have you outgrown your current CI/CD pipeline? Is it too slow, manual, or too many settings require tweaking too often? Have you accidentally become the person in charge of “DevOps”?

Fear no more, in this hands-on workshop, I will walk you through CI/CD core concepts and best practices, as well as review real-world release management and automation problems and how to overcome them.

During the half-day workshop on September 23rd, 2019, you will get hands-on access to TeamCity and Octopus Cloud with OctoFX, which is a sample application we use to demonstrate Octopus. You will configure its build, run automated tests, design your deployment process, and finally promote it through Dev, Test, and Production environments.

Turbocharging Azure DevOps with Octopus Deploy talk

Derek Campbell speaking at WinOps London 2019 details

At Octopus Deploy, we are passionate about automation, be it code, databases, or infrastructure, which is why we are excited to announce that I, Derek Campbell will continue this discussion in our presentation on Turbocharging Azure DevOps with Octopus Deploy at the WinOp’s London Event on September 24th, 2019.

In this session, I will take you through how to integrate Azure DevOps and Octopus Deploy using the Azure DevOps extension. I will then demo an Azure pipeline and lastly pass this through to Octopus Deploy which will then deploy to Azure from a single build and test all the way to Production.

If you're already coming, then be sure to say hi to the team and grab some Octopus stickers!
