Fellow .NET Users,

I apologize for the lateness of my message this month. It certainly won't detract from the content and community that you've no doubt become accustomed to! The next .NET User's Group meeting will take place on Thursday, June 27th starting at 6:00 PM. Food and drinks will be served starting 15-20 minutes before the meeting begins.

After the meeting, our friends at Harbinger Partners will be buying drinks and appetizers for us at Local Beer, Patio and Kitchen 4904 S 135th St.

Farm Credit Services of America, 4979 S 118th St

The Power of Azure DevOps
There are many tools available today that can be used to augment your DevOps practices. With Azure DevOps you can pick and choose which tools work best for your existing processes. In this talk, we'll take a look at the tools provided with Azure DevOps such as Azure Boards, Azure Pipelines, Azure Repos, Azure Test Plans, and Azure Artifacts. We will also look at how these tools can integrate with each other to provide value to your software development and delivery workflows. Whether you are delivering software on-premises or in the cloud, building open source or commercial solutions, using .NET, Java, Swift or any other language, you should see what Azure DevOps has to offer.
