Team Foundation Server 2013 provides a comprehensive ALM solution from portfolio management through development, testing, build automation and now, release management. This has been a missing piece in Microsoft’s ALM solution, but with 2013, you can now configure, approve and deploy your applications for any environment. In this session, we will walk through how to configure and deploy your application to multiple environments; even to the cloud using Team Foundation Server 2013 Release Management. We will see how to schedule and trigger a build to kick off a deployment, enable approvers to schedule each promoted release, and to visualize your release pipeline.
