Donovan Brown uses Azure, Xamarin, HockeyApp, .NET Core 5 on Linux, SQL Azure, and Visual Studio Team Services to demonstrate a DevOps experience for a multichannel mobile and cloud app. Donovan explains how a release pipeline can manage containerized services across Windows and Linux, including deployment of database changes, display these on a responsive web app, and then grow the web experience into native apps for iOS and Android—maintained, compiled, and instrumented from a single code base. See the amazing changes brought by Microsoft’s challenger mindset.

This session is sponsored by Microsoft.
