With a hand in multiple projects that are common tools for the DevOps community, we felt there is no time like the present to launch a specific landing page for those interested in the topic and how Microsoft Open Technologies, Inc. is involved. Today, we invite you to say ‘hello’ to our new DevOps landing page! This blog post provides a quick overview of the type of content you can find and what we’re planning for the future of the page.
With the creation of this page, as with all of our work at MS Open Tech, the goal is to provide choice and opportunity to help bridge Microsoft and non-Microsoft technologies together in a heterogeneous environment. By contributing to key open source communities we are ensuring that customers have a range of choices available to them which best suit their needs and existing skill-sets.
When you visit the new page today, you’ll find a full list of our projects in the DevOps tool chain, along with convenient hyperlinks to news and tutorials related to those projects. This section of the site is growing rapidly, so be sure to visit often.
