For practitioners using Azure and Azure DevOps, there are many ways to optimize process and reduce waste. We cover techniques for improving artifact storage, agent pool usage and kubernetes interactions. We show working demos of work item automations with notifications, cross cloud deployments and private containerized agent pools to name a few. We will introduce some free and commercial products along the way that allow organizations to scale with regards to monitoring, deployments, infrastructure as code and secrets handling. This course is a wealth of how-tos and guidance.
