Overall Satisfaction with Azure DevOps Server (formerly Team Foundation Server)

Azure DevOps is being used by the entire company. We use that to build our build and release pipeline to continually release our deployment.
For our department, we build infrastructure with Terraform and deploy it to the Google Cloud Platform. It solves our problem of not having a CI/CD pipeline. It makes our development cycle much faster.
  • It is compatible with so many services. You can deploy to GCP, AWS, and with any kind of developing language.
  • It has a clear developing logic. You build first and then deploy things to the destination you want.
  • When you develop with Microsoft products, you can do a lot more.
  • There is a little window tells you small jokes and information. It just annoys me.
  • The UI might use more careful design. it can be confusing when you want to find the thing you want.
  • There are small things can be added to improve productivity, such as cloning the whole agent job.
  • It improves our development cycle.
  • It helps us debug more efficiently.
  • It saves us money in the long run.
Microsoft Azure DevOps is the one that integrates everything you can possibly use and provides a solution that eases your developing process. It has a strong support community and well-written documentation. No matter what you do, you will always find the right pipeline. It is also very stable and performs well.
I give it this rating mainly because there are a lot of documents you can read and find the solution for your problem. Whether you are developing pipelines or designing the workflow, you will always find someone who has done it and can give you the right insights. I have not used their customer support yet.

For companies, especially big companies, when they adopt the way of CI/CD, they need a build pipeline to realize all these. Either they develop websites with languages like Python, Ruby, or C#, or they set up infrastructure with Terraform, Ansible, or Puppet. Azure DevOps integrates everything together and provides a solution that works with all the technologies you use.
