Top Stories from the Microsoft DevOps Community – 2018.10.12

I’m back! One of the great privileges of my job is that I get to spend a lot of time talking to customers about DevOps. But that often means a lot of time on the road, and stepping away from drinking at the firehose of great content coming from the Azure DevOps community. But now that I’m back in the office, I’ve found a great bunch of DevOps links:
