Overview

We are working on providing hands-on-labs for Visual Studio Team Services. Here are a few labs, for a start.

In order to complete these labs you will need

  • Visual Studio Team Services account: If you don’t have one, you can sign up for one, from here

  • Microsoft Azure Account: You will need a valid and active Azure account for the Azure labs. If you do not have one, you can sign up for a free trial

    • If you are a Visual Studio Active Subscriber, you are entitled for a $50-$150 credit per month. You can refer to this link to find out more including how to activate and start using your monthly Azure credit.

    • If you are not a Visual Studio Subscriber, you can sign up for the FREE Visual Studio Dev Essentials program and get $25 per month of Azure credits.

  • Visual Studio 2017 or higher version - You will need Visual Studio for some of the labs. You can use your own machine with VS 2017 installed, or download and use the latest ALM VM, or spin up a VM pre-installed with Visual Studio on Azure.

  • You can use the Visual Studio Team Services Demo Data generator to provision a project with pre-defined data on to your Visual Studio Team Services account. Please use the My Health Clinic template to follow the hands-on-labs.

If you are not using the VSTS Demo Data Generator, you can clone the code from this GitHub repository
