A fantastic offering for small development teams

5.0 10 months ago

Comments: We've improved a number of key workflows with Azure DevOps and it's proved to be an invaluable addition to our software development cycle.

Pros:

The service provides a lot under the one package, task management, source control, CI/CD, and release pipelines. If you are a small team or just starting off, you'll be able to take advantage of it all for either free, or very little money. It's clearly designed to get teams hooked on Azure and it does this job well.

Cons:

The UI is clunky in places, task management specifically leaves a lot to be desired. While the close integration with source control is fantastic, editing and navigating between tasks take far too long and you're much more likely to avoid doing it or take a lot longer to complete a simple job.

Tools for doubling productivity

4.0 last year

Comments: Many plugins and events, such as git repository updates, can be triggered to run builds and tests automatically. By continuously building and testing, it is possible to detect deviations and defects early and improve the quality and efficiency of development.

Pros:

The functionality can be extended with add-ons; since there are many add-ons, you can do a wide range of things. Being able to do certain things even when engineers are not present also helps to keep the product running stably.

Cons:

I would be happy if the manual to consult when I don't understand the operation is a little more complete.

You don't get notifications inside of the app so this is worthless

3.0 last week New

Comments: If you don't care about being up to date about what is going on in your projects, it's brilliant. If you want to know when someone comments on your ticket, don't even bother. Even JIRA onprem does this now?

Pros:

...there is a moment where you think oh maybe there is life beyond Atlassian products and the idea of competition in the market place is good. I suppose the fact that wiki's are included in the price whilst for Atlassian confluence is a whole other paid product is good?

Cons:

It doesn't have the concept of closing a sprint. So items just... remain. You cannot easily move them to the 'new' sprint. You have to think far too hard about administration 'what area is an item in'. Bulk actions are poor. Most chaotically - there are no in app notifications?!?! So you get an email about everything. And you get hundreds of emails. If you are under the age of 35 this is unacceptable really.

It is a very complete continuous learning program

5.0 3 months ago

Comments: It has been an experience more good than bad, we believe that it is a program that deserves to be purchased, to be used, it has several strong aspects when developing or at least complements the work that had already been done and provides new configurations when developing. Compatibility with many applications.

Pros:

It is a program that helps us obtain better ideas when generating new projects within the company. It was crucial for the team to have access to new learning tools and we believe that we were able to obtain this at the time that helped us make development compatible. with other formats. Azure DevOps provides robust continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) capabilities, which are crucial for modern software development in our team and in this way we have complemented work with what we already had.

Cons:

We did not like the project manager system that we believe is outdated, it does not have all the tools that we need, therefore in this sense we had to choose to buy other programs that would help us separately with this problem.
