This lesson explores how to manage code quality and security policies with Azure DevOps, and will help those preparing for Microsoft's AZ-400 exam.

It starts by examining the definition of code quality and how to write high-quality code. Next, we’ll look at what goes into code quality scanning and at how SonarCloud can help monitor code quality, and you'll see a hands-on demonstration that shows you how to use SonarCloud in the pipeline.

You'll learn what code coverage means and how to use the “Publish Code Coverage Results” task to report on code coverage. This lesson also covers security policies, including OWASP and its Top-10 list, as well as looking at a couple of popular security analysis tools.
