In this chapter, we introduced the CloudMakers.XYZ scenario, highlighting some of the most important aspects a start-up has to cope with. We learned how to build a simple development environment, how to generalize it, and how to abstract it as just "Applications"-as-a-Service. We looked at how to create an ALM environment with VSO and what integration entry points are useful in various business contexts. Finally, we performed some automation using scripting technologies and we learned how to set up advanced schedules.

In the next chapter, we enhance the scenario with some hybrid options using networking and working with VMs.
