Course Outline

Lecture 1: Source Control with Git and TFVC

Whether your software project is large or small, using version control as soon as possible is a good idea. Azure Repos supports two types of version control: Git and Team Foundation Version Control (TFVC). In this lecture you'll learn the foundations of source control.

Lecture 2: Git Branching Strategies

Distributed version control systems like Git give you flexibility in how you use version control to share and manage code. Your team should find a balance between this flexibility and the need to collaborate and share code in a consistent manner. In this lecture you'll learn how team members publish, share, review, and iterate on code changes through Git branches shared with others.

Project 1: Git Workflow Basics

Version control keeps a history of your development so that you can review and even rollback to any version of your code with ease. This project will show how to perform common version controls tasks using the following version control workflow.

Project 2: Working with Pull Requests

Pull requests let your team review code and give feedback on changes before merging it into the main branch, and pull requests can come from either topic branches within the same repository or from a branch in a fork of the original repository. In this project you'll learn how to work with pull requests.

Project 3: Deploy Pull Request Builds with Azure Pipelines

Pull requests allow for code reviews before changes are merged to the codebase. However, certain issues can be tricky to find until the code is built and deployed to an environment. In this lab you'll Deploy pull request Artifacts with Azure Pipelines.
