Course Overview
Hello, I'm Jason Helmick with Pluralsight, and welcome to Play-by-Play from Pluralsight. Play-by-Play is a series where we sit down with the top technologists in an unscripted and unrehearsed conversation, and I am here right now on the steps in Redmond, Washington at Microsoft headquarters to sit down with the technical elite of Microsoft to bring you an early and advanced view of the technologies that you may be working with every single day. And I have to say that in this course. Michael Green's going to help you on two fronts. First of all, how to elastically and consistently scale in Azure or Azure Stack, and that might sound like a lot, but you're going to see how easy this is to do, but even more importantly, and where we spend a lot of our conversation, will be on building your own dev ops processes and building infrastructure from code. Along with his recently released Whitepaper, this is an amazing time to get started in dev ops. And working with Azure and Azure automation in DSC, this is a way you can consistently, elastically scale rapidly for your business needs. It's an important session that you're definitely going to want to see.
