Learners can explore the useful capabilities of Azure Board for planning, tracking, and monitoring sprints following the Agile methodology, as well as examine the prominent features of Azure Artifacts, and the best practices for managing and sharing packages, in this 16-video course. You will also learn about the configuration management and monitoring capabilities afforded by Azure DevOps along with how to use Azure Pipelines to set up continuous deployment for containerized applications to Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS). Next, you will discover how to create various test artifacts, use Azure DevOps to discover, install, and publish NuGet, NPM (node package manager), and Maven packages, and configure Ansible instances on virtual machines (VMs) by using Ansible Solution Template. Conclude the course by learning how to use Ansible solution template to configure AKS clusters in Azure; how to create resource groups, and create AKS clusters within resource groups; and how to use Azure Blueprint to create, deploy, and update compliant environments.
