In the development of software there are several challenges, one of the most common is the friction between different teams that necessarily have to collaborate to reach their goals and with Azure DevOps it is sought to break with that problem by having as an objective to automate and integrate the work of these teams as if it were one.
Working with teams can be a pain if there is no process defined to review and test changes on features and releases before they are merged, or more importantly to prevent buggy code from getting to production.
We had Alberto Morillo with the keynote of the event, he summarized how the cloud computing scene is made up with Azure, from virtual machines to serverless apps.
The first speaker was Ariel Gómez, who delighted us with his masterful presentation about how to implement Azure DevOps in our work teams, then we had Shailyn Ortíz talking about ARM templates and containers and how Azure facilitates the work when playing with these technologies.
At noon we had a lunch provided by the team of Microsoft Dominicana (special thanks to Juan Jhordanny Hernández), as well as refreshments throughout the day.
In the second part of the event was Yhorby Matías demonstrating the power of Azure Cognitive Services, showing us a demo of how we can measure the emotions of events in real time using the tweets of people.
Then we continue with Mabel Gerónimo with the interesting topic of serverless apps, from the basics to how we can include this type of practice in our day to day, using Azure Functions.
To close the event, I was talking about Continuous Monitoring using Azure App Insights, the importance of proactivity in the detection of early errors and the ability to share performance information of our applications, there we saw how from the Azure portal we can have answers to questions like: which features of your web or mobile app are most popular? Do your users achieve their goals with your app?
Hi folks, as part of the Xamarin Month initiative -by my friend Luis Matos- we are going to learn how to combine Geolocation plugin from Xamarin.Essentials and Maps Control to make a user’s location tracker in Xamarin Forms.
There are several tools for handling every step in the Mobile Development Lifecycle, but let’s be realistics, sometimes it’s hard for us to implement those tools in our apps and we end up ignoring important parts of the cycle, in the most of the cases developers just develop and distribute their apps (forgeting what comes after this).
