In this lightning talk, Craeg Strong describes a Continuous Delivery/DevOps implementation for a mission-critical Criminal Justice system running Microsoft .NET technologies. While Continuous Delivery has made inroads for web-based applications, it is relatively new and unfamiliar for traditional Microsoft desktop applications. The talk will describe how the starting technology stack (TFS, TFSBuild, File System, SharePoint, Batch Files) was gradually converted to the ending technology stack (GIT, TeamCity, Artifactory, Octopus Deploy, PowerShell), and the lessons learned along the way. Why should the web-based developers have all the fun? Continuous Delivery yields significant benefits for web-based and traditional desktop-based applications alike. Let’s all join the DevOps revolution!
