Description

The application lifecycle doesn’t finish with app deployment. Feedback is an important element of refining an application, whether that’s exception detection and diagnoses or improving the user experience. In this course, we will look at a suite of services that capture a vast array of feedback data, ranging from exceptions to client and server telemetry. This data can be turned into easily digestible information that can be used to trigger alerts and feedback into the development lifecycle as work items.

This course begins by describing what feedback is, and the types of feedback for improving application performance and usability. It then moves on to how we can integrate feedback into the software development lifecycle and what tools we can use to simplify that task. Finally, we will look at optimizing feedback mechanisms to get meaningful data from feedback noise.

Transcript

Hi and welcome to this Implementing Continuous Feedback with Azure DevOps Course. This is an Intermediate level course suited to project managers and developers or anyone wanting to learn how to make use of feedback mechanisms to improve application reliability, performance and user satisfaction. 

It will help having a basic understanding of application design and the software development lifecycle. 

In this course, we will start by describing what feedback is, and then types of feedback that are of most use in improving application performance and usability. We will then move on to how we can integrate feedback into the software development lifecycle and what tools we can use to simplify that task. Finally, we will look at optimizing feedback mechanisms to get meaningful data from feedback noise.
