DevOps Integration with GitHub and Azure

Customers need faster, yet reliable solutions. Developers would love to relax the weekends after doing a deployment. Both these did not happen together very often. As a result, various iterative development methodologies such as Agile and Scrum are introduced. DevOps is the latest explanation introduced by Microsoft for such organizations where the team of developers and the requirement holders are connected very efficiently.

Microsoft made GitHub a friend by acquiring GitHub rather than sticking only with Visual Studio Teams services. Thanks to that decision, over 10,000 open source projects are handled with the support of both GitHub and Azure DevOps TOGETHER.

GitHub is home to over 36 million developers and Microsoft loves your code. There are over 100 new features introduced since the acquire has happened. One of the easiest yet attractive features I found on Azure DevOps is the ease of linking commits and PRs with a DevOps task. This make things a way lot easier for a development team as it is very easily managed with the text in the code commit to GitHub.

It is not always about the Azure developers going and hosting their code on GitHub. The existing GitHub users are very well welcomed to the Azure DevOps by letting them sign on with their GitHub credentials. Yes, the GitHub users can now enjoy Azure DevOps benefits without a Microsoft account. How easy is this getting on board?

Now imagine you are in an organization and get together and decided to use GitHub with Azure DevOps. Do you have to manage another place with the users, groups as members come and go to the teams? GitHub Enterprise will support Azure Active Directory for integrating the group memberships. If a user come in or leave, now you just have single place to manage.

Azure pipelines are also supported very well with the YAML definitions as they are declarative as well as pipelines play a major role in Azure DevOps. Further, the Azure Pipelines can be easily integrated with the Kibernetes clusters on Azure.

So, why wait? Try now.
