  In this episode we talk about Azure Pipelines.   Definitions What is a pipeline Chain of repeatable actions/tasks that transform some input into some output. Its like a function chain. Types of pipelines Build Pipeline This pipeline takes the source code as input and produces deployable artifacts as the output. It may also do some unit testing, linting and static analysis to the code to check the validatiy of the output artifacts. Release Pipleline This pipeline takes the deployable artifacts as input and produces deployed environments as outputs. It may also perform some automated integration tests to test the validity of the deployment Continuous Integration (CI) This is the practice of merging the small batches of developer changes into the main branch continuously instead of all at once at the end of a development cycle. This is facilitated by a good build pipeline. For good or worse CI Pipeline and Build Pipeline are often conflated Continuous Delivery (CD) This is the practice of automatically deploying an artifact to an environment as soon as the artifact is created. This does not mean that the environment production. This is facilitated by a good release pipeline For good or worse CD Pipeline and Release Pipeline are often conflated CI/CD This is when we combine the practice of Continuous Integration with the practice of Continuous Delivery Continuous Deployment This is the practice of extending the automatic deployment of an artifact through all stages until is automatically deployed to production. This requires one or more good release pipelines It often gets confused with Continious Delivery. It is Continuous Delivery but Continuous Delivery is not Continuous Deployment. Azure DevOps Products Azure DevOps A suite of development tools Azure Pipelines Tool for building out the build and release pipelines Alternates Jenkins, Octopus, TeamCity, Circleci, GitLab Excellent GitHub and Azure DevOps Repos integration, but can connect to other remote repositories Excellent Azure integration, but can deploy into most any platfor or environment. Linux, macOS and Windows adjents Supports most lanuages Free for Open Source (10 parallel jobs unlimited minutes) First agent free for closed source Before Creating a Pipeline Consider your branching strategy Recommend, Trunk-based Strategy Team shares single trunk (master) that all development is based off of. Release Flow Creating a Build Pipeline YAML vs Classic Recommend, YAML uses a yaml config stored in the source code repository to define the build pipeline. Classic is good for learning the platform and can be used to figure out the correct yaml. trigger Recommend, based on changes to specified branchs can include or exclude files and folders within the branch can be triggered on a timed schedule define jobs a job us run on an agent and has its own variables and copies of source code etc. jobs can be completed in parallel define steps in jobs steps are the collection of steps/tasks that a given job will run define the task in step each step is a task this will be the heart of your build pipeline and will depend largely on what you are building variables you may want to specify some variables across jobs, like version number pools you many want to specify the type of agent to use by default instead of in every job definition Creating a Release Pipeline Classic The “only released” method for creating a release pipeline is the classic method You could create a yaml build pipeline that performed the release tasks but triggers might be more challenging. Recommend, There are some other options in pre-release. select artifacts this will likely come from artifacts published from a build pipeline

DevOps is the union of people, process, and technology to enable the continous delivery of value to customers Key metrics for successful development Throughput Lead Time - from concept to deployed Deployment Frequency - how frequent new code is deployed Stability Change Failure - how often a deployment breaks some thing Time to Restore - how quickly to recover from broken (either fix or revert) Availability - how often service is good and available to be consumed Grouping Performers (4.5 groups) Elite Performers Deploy On Demand, lead time < 1hr, time to restore < 1hr, fail rate 0-15% High Performers Deploy 1hr > 1dy, lead time 1dy > 1wk, time to restore < 1dy, fail rate 0-15% Medium Performers Deploy 1wk > 1mth, lead time 1wk > 1mth, time to restore < 1dy, fail rate 0-15% Low Performers Deploy 1wk > 1mth, lead time 1mth > 6mth, time to restore 1wk < 1mth, fail rate 46-60% Misguided Performers like Low Performers but better fail rate 16-30% have often achieved better results by going slower, but platues with increased friction Elites vs Low, 46x More Deployments, 7x Fewer Change Failures Elites get to spend 50% on new work, low only 30% Everyone spends 20% on unplanned work and rework How to Improve Understanding the 3 ways The First Way: Systems Thinking, Work Flows Downstream The Second Way: Amplify and Shorten Feedback Loop, Downstream info effects upstream work The Third Way: Culture of Experimentation and Learning The Technical Pracices of DevOps Trunk-Based Development Deployment Automation Loosely Coupled Architecture Continous Integration Continous Testing Monitoring & Observability Managing Database Changes Proactive & Reactive Integrated Security   Resources MS Docs - What is DevOps?

  What causes burnout? Too much work? Possibly, but not necessarily Many people work crazy hours and do not suffer from burnout. Work/life balance? Again, this is possible The feeling of work/life unbalance is more of a symptom than a reason. Compound Stress This seems to be the real cause. Work asking for tight deadlines Spouse wanting more help around the house Kids needing help with homework or skills they are struggling with. Internal stress Putting unrealistic expectations on yourself Failing to complete projects Finances Basically Burnout is you not being able to keep up with the expectaions of your work, your family, and yourself. How does burnout affect you as a developer? Prevents you from working productively Unable to focus at work inability to make yourself work general loss of productivity at work a strong wanting to quit and find another job Harms family interactions Loss of affection to your spouse which leads to loss of affection from your spouse Lack of positive interations with your kids getting upset at them when you normally wouldn’t be General malaise at home not doing normal chores that you should basically sit on couch, watch tv, and ignore the world Could lead to divorce and/or missing important milestones in your families life. Spiraling descent into unhappiness Basically all the symptoms of depression Burnout affects every aspect of your life and prevents you from managing work, family, finances, exercise and eating habits, and everything else that is part of a healthy life. How do we prevent burnout from happening in the first place? It’s not real easy Ignore stress conditions or find a good coping mechanism for them. Deadlines at work of most often not as urgent or important as they are made to be seen. Relax and do the best you can, but don’t cave under the weight of a deadline Don’t rush to meet the deadline causes bugs causes bad code leads to more stress Assume that everyone is doing the best they can under the circumstances Even if you could do a better job Even if it’s not even your job The belief they someone else is slacking off leads to more stress leads to tension within the team doesn’t help anyone If you have a question, ask it. Ask for help This one might be difficult you are not an island you can’t do this on your own Personal projects and hobbys Don’t require the utmost professionalism You don’t have to TDD or Clean Code all the time. You can relax and write some bad code sometimes These projects are for practicing or learn a specific thing. Focus on that Are great for releiving stress when not taken seriously If the project or hobby stresses you out, it can wait. Family Your spouse doesn’t know or understand your work If you are stressed, talk to your spouse about it. If you have had a bad day, talk to your spouse about it. Children don’t know or understand your work If you are stressed Children are young? save it until they are in bed. be nice to the kids Children are older? Explain to them your feelings and let them know it’s okay If you had a bad day Children are young? save it until they are in bed. be nice to the kids Children are older? Explain to them your feelings and let them know it’s okay It’s too late, I already have Burnout? Take a break Do you have vacation time? Switch to no stress mode by following the guidance for preventing burnout at work Ask work if it would be possible to put you on a different project if the current project is a cause for burnout Put personal projects on hold for a little while. Seek new hobbies :) This part can be fun!

  Joey landed his first programming job in the '90s with a HyperCard (remember that?) resume and by going out for beer with the managers of the company where he wanted to work until they caved and hired him. Since then, he’s worked at a San Francisco startup during the dot-com bubble, done tech evangelism for Tucows, Microsoft, and Shopify, valiantly tried to make Windows Phone happen, and once had a very short stint as an accordion-playing go-go dancer at a Toronto nightclub. He's currently a mobile developer at Lilypad. Joey lives, works, and engages in nincompoopery in Tampa, Florida, where he runs Tampa iOS Meetup (and helps out at the Android and Xamarin Meetups, too!), plays unlikely rock and pop tunes on his accordion, and generally does what he can to avoid becoming a "Florida Man" news story.   Links http://www.joeydevilla.com/ http://www.globalnerdy.com/ https://twitter.com/AccordionGuy https://www.linkedin.com/in/joeydevilla/   Resources Microserfs iOS Apprentice (Eighth Edition) iOS 10 Programming for Beginners Android Apprentice Kotlin Apprentice Android Test-Driven Development by Tutorials Google Developers Group (Tampa)   "Tempting Time" by Animals As Leaders used with permissions - All Rights Reserved   × Subscribe now!
