Azure Devops - Pull Request Merge Conflicts

Before a Git pull request can complete, any conflicts with the target branch must be resolved. Out of the box, at the time of writing this article, Azure DevOps requires this to be resolved locally. Following best practices to not allow direct commits to our release/master branches further exasperates the problem as we need to effectively clone the branch or go with a rebase approach, both of which break the natural flow of resolving the conflicts as part of the pull request. With this extension, from the Microsoft DevLabs team via the Marketplace, you can resolve these conflicts online, as part of the pull request process, instead of being forced to break flow and resolve locally. Online Experience After adding the extension the new conflicts tab is visible which enables conflict resolution in the familiar side by side review page as shown below: Really nice extension, which should make resolving merge conflicts a much more straightforward part of the DevOps

Simple Git branching strategy for release cycles

Coming up with a branching strategy that works well can be challenging when working with multiple developers and managing release cycles. A simple approach is presented here to manage release cycles, with a small to medium sized team of developers while still being able to react to production issues and fix bugs. The primary goal being to isolate work streams without impacting development progress. Background Git does not enforce any particular strategy when it comes to branching which is partly what makes it such a great and flexible repository. The problems start to arise though as you move into different stages of your development process. As an example, you have a release almost complete but don’t want to impede progress on the upcoming release cycle which is where the majority of effort is required. The Basic Approach The focus is around producing a release while still being able to react to hotfixes or production issues without impacting on going development of featu

Adding mobile support for MVC4 Web Applications

A few years ago, mobile web sites were more of an after-thought for many developers unless you were involved in developing apps specifically targeted for mobile devices. I was surprised to read on wiki that it was only March 2010 when Apple began taking pre-orders for the iPad. What a different landscape we have seen since. Desktops, Tablet and Mobile support are now a major design goal for any site that needs a broad reach and this is only set to increase.   This article will demonstrate how MVC4 , almost out of the box allows us to deliver views that cater for specific mobile devices and keep the code base shared as much as possible, creating mobile friendly web applications.
