Rails app on azure devops

Azure devops labs

In this lab you will take a Ruby application and sprinkle a bit of DevOps on it.

We will import the code to our own Azure DevOps Git repository, set up version control policies to manage changes and then configure automated continuous integration and delivery to ultimately see the application running in production.
