Well, that’s not exactly true. Instead of doing releases every month or every quarter, you end up doing releases multiple times per day. Whenever features are ready, ship them. In this session, Ben will talk about how to do this with Azure DevOps builds and releases deploying an ASP.NET Core / Entity Framework Core app into Azure. Expect to hear about how Feature Flags can make your life easier, where QA testers fits in to this stuff, and also how to think about database schema changes.
