Containers on Azure as part of a CI/CD pipeline

In my previous posts I was speaking about the journey to go from setting up a container and ultimately publishing it in a continuous fashion to a registry using VSTS.

You may have noticed that a lot of time has elapsed since my last post, and there are a couple of reasons for that.

First of all, the impediment of work, secondly, I noticed a trend where it became fairly popular to blog about the journey from where I ended off and I hung back and followed those for a while.

Instead of me going ahead and creating a bunch of posts to show how to publish your container and run it in production, I鈥檓 going to hand it off to a bunch of other capable people聽 馃檪
