Azure DevOps provides version control, reporting, automated builds, and project/lab/testing and release management capabilities. Azure DevOps is available as a SaaS or on-premises server product. In this section, we will cover the Azure DevOps workflow configuration and built-in CI/CD capabilities using the SaaS product. You will learn how to manage workflows and create Azure pipelines.
In the following recipe, you will learn how to create a pipeline example in a repository you own by adding a YAML file. This recipe requires an active GitHub account with a project ready to be built. We will use AKS to demonstrate continuous delivery with Azure Pipelines.
All the operations mentioned here require an Azure DevOps account. If you don't have one, go to https://azure.microsoft.com/services/devops/ and create one. Deploying the application on Azure Kubernetes Service also requires an active Azure Cloud subscription.
