Azure DevOps is a hosted, managed, multi-tenant repurposing of VSTS. It provides:

  • Boards for issue tracking and sprint management using kanban.
  • Repos for hosting source code:
    • Git is the default.
    • TFS is available for holdouts.
  • Pipelines for continuous integration and delivery:
    • p.r.comp.lang.markup.yaml (Private) configuration allows you to place an azure-pipelines.yaml (by convention) in the repository, versioning your build alongside your source code.
    • Release pipelines can be expressed in either the UI as YAML.
    • Legacy pipelines allow graphical design
  • Test Plans allow coordinated execution of manually-executed test plans.
