In this chapter, we explored the fundamental procedures of Agile planning in Azure DevOps. We also learned about Azure Boards, along with related components, such as Work Items, Backlogs, and Sprints. Then, we discussed source control and explained the difference between TFVC and Git.

After that, we explored Git and how it can version source code, before learning about branching and pull requests. Later, we learned about the packages that are available in Azure Artifacts, along with CI/CD, which help automate the steps related to building, testing, and deploying our code.

Now that you have finished reading this book, your mind is probably filled with a lot of different ideas since you've dived deep into the everyday aspects of solution architecture.
