YAML Deployment Pipelines

In Jun `21 I had the opportunity to present to the Omaha Azure User’s Group on the topic of YAML Pipelines within Azure DevOps. Here is the abstract and the recording. Enjoy!


With Microsoft migrating away from the Classic Build and Release Process and replacing that with the Pipeline Experience one can be left with where to start and organize this. Anyone can quickly build a YAML pipeline to deploy their app and IaC; however, can you adeptly template and variablize them? How about dynamically building stages while scoping variable files via templates? All of this is effort to lower the barrier of entry on deploying your code while maintaining flexibility.
