“Azure DevOps Explained” book announcement

I’m very happy and proud to announce the hard work I’ve done during the quarantine together with two great MVPs like Sjoukje Zaal and Amit Malik… thanks guys for joining the project 🙂

The book will be delivered starting from late October, but you can pre-order it now on Amazon or on the Packt website with an interesting discount.

Book Description

Developing applications for the cloud involves changing development methodologies and procedures. Continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD) processes are a must today, but are often difficult to implement and adopt. Azure DevOps is Microsoft Azure’s cloud service which enhances your application development life cycle and enables DevOps capabilities.

Starting with a comprehensive product overview, this book helps you to understand Azure DevOps and apply DevOps techniques to your development projects. You’ll find out how to adopt DevOps techniques for your development processes by using inbuilt Azure DevOps tools. Through the course of this book, you’ll also discover how to manage a project with the help of project management techniques such as Agile or Scrum, and then progress toward development aspects such as source code management, build pipelines, code testing and artifacts, release pipelines, and GitHub integration. While you learn to implement DevOps practices, this book will also provide you with real-world examples and scenarios of DevOps adoption.

By the end of this DevOps book, you will have learned how to adopt and implement Azure DevOps features in your real-world development processes.

What you will learn

  • Get to grips with Azure DevOps
  • Find out about project management with Azure Boards
  • Understand source code management with Azure Repos
  • Build and release pipelines
  • Run quality tests in build pipelines
  • Use artifacts and integrate Azure DevOps in the GitHub flow
  • Discover real-world CI/CD scenarios with Azure DevOps

Who This Book Is For

This book is for developers, solutions architects, and DevOps engineers interested in getting started with cloud DevOps practices on Azure. Prior understanding of Azure architecture and services is necessary. Some knowledge of DevOps principles and techniques will be useful.


  1. Hi Stefano,
    90% of my work the last couple of years have been more about Powershell, containers, Azure DevOps (ADO!) build and release pipeline than BC, so I will be looking very much forward to read this one. I hope it will cover cases and tips relevant to onprem installations for enterprise customers and that I is not to much cloud focused. 🙂


    1. Unfortunately it’s not D365BC-related, it covers all from project management to SCM to deploying apps in the cloud with build/release pipelines, quality testing, AKS, Docker deployment and more. You will not find D365BC related stuffs here.


  2. Hi Stefano,

    on the Packt Website it states that the book was to be released on 13.11. but it still states Pre-Order. On Amazon it states the 11.12. as release date. Can you share the correct release date?

    Looking forward to reading it 🙂
