    This book promised so much but delivered very little I was looking for a book that would give a good grounding for Azure DevOps taking you through a project projects from start to finish What this book is though is a collection 70 of DevOps add ins with a few pages describing how to install each one and what they do, there was no beginners guide to Azure, no taking a project through from start to finish, just a mish mash of short reviews with no real thread behind it all.Luckily I managed to return my copy after I realised it was a mistake I gave it two stars as I felt generous and I suppose if you already know DevOps then some of the add ins and write ups might be useful.

    I like their format of recipes that walk through common requirements I find it particularly interesting that for virtually each recipes there is an associated Azure DevOps Extension that enhances the experience It speaks well of the research the authors have done and the richness and variety of the 3rd party extensions in the Azure DevOps MarketplacesI think because of this format there is something in this book for everyone, whether new to Azure DevOps Server 2019 or someone who has been around the product since the days of TFS 2005.

    We have just started with DevOps and found this book very relevant It covers all the essentials of devops right from how to use git effectively branch policies and branching for git has some great tips , setting up ci cd, integration with agile board, test automation, release management, package management and extensibility The format of the book follows a problem, solution format which makes it really easy to understand and apply the learnings I found the test automation chapter very useful as we have started using specflow and it shows u some neat tricks on how to automate the test automation workflows I would recommend this book to anyone getting started with DevOps or looking to scale the use of devops across the organization using Microsoft DevOps Server.

    The book shows deep experience and covers many details It starts from the beginning and provide from the ground up.

    Waste of money It has no depth and is very poorly written It seems with Packt you either get a great book, or one that was a waste of time to produce This book covers a fair amount of topics, but does not present the topics in a way that makes the content worth reading It a shame because it it really the only book about Azure DevOps Server 2019.

    lacking real actions, no detail in how to do it, where to do it, who to do it.
