In the article, VersionOne CTO Ian Culling discusses why developers should tune in to the Azure cloud platform:“First, Azure streamlines/enables continuous deployment, and as a result, we have found that this really forces the DevOps discussion as the barriers between dev, test, staging and production are virtually non/existent. Second, Azure allows for greater focus on the code and less on the infrastructure. In comparison to other stacks, iteration/zero activities are much simpler due to the instant, no/effort infrastructure.” VersionOne openAgile Team Lead Josh Gough summed up what he believes Microsoft is doing right for those who are not interested in being hemmed in to using just Microsoft products in their development: “We have been able to quickly build, deploy, monitor and change applications because of the deep integration between Azure, Node.js and GitHub. We can commit a change to a staging branch in a GitHub repository in GitHub, and almost instantly the source/code changes propagate to our staging deployment slot in Azure. When smoke/tests pass, we simply push the changes from the staging branch to master, and the production site gets the same updates.” What else should you know about Azure?
