Azure DevOps supports two types of version control, Git and Team Foundation Version Control (TFVC). Here is a quick overview of the two vesion control systems:Team Foundation Verson Control (TFVC): TFVC is a centralized version control system. Typically, team memvers have only one version of each file on their dev machines. Historical data is maintained only on the server. Branches are path-based and created on the server.Git: Git is a distributed version control system. Git repositories can live locally (such as on a developer's machine). Each developer has a copy of the source repository on their dev machine. Developers can commit each set of changes on their dev machine and perform version control operations such as a history and compare without a network connection.Git is the default version control provider for new projects. You should use Git for version control in your projects unless you have a specific need for centralized version control features in TFVC.In this lab, you will learn how to establish a local Git repository, which can easily be syncronized with a centralized Git repository in Azure DevOps. In addition, you will learn about Git branching and merging support. You will use Visual Studio Code, but the same processess apply for using any Git-compatible client with Azure DevOps.

Application Insights is an extensible Application Performance Management (APM) service for web developers on multiple platforms. You can use it to monitor your live web applications and other services. It automatically detects performance anomalies, includes powerful analytics tools to help you diagnose issues, and helps you continuously improve performance and usability. It works for apps on a wide variety of platforms including .NET, Node.js and Java EE, hosted on-premises, hybrid, or any public cloud. It even integrates with your DevOps process with connection points available in a variety of development tools. It can even monitor and analyze telemetry from mobile apps by integrating with Visual Studio App Center.In this lab, you'll learn about how you can add Application Insights to an existing web application, as well as how to monitor the application via the Azure portal.

In this lab, you will manage VM Image or the OS Disk of both Windows and Linux. Generally, you may use images available in the marketplace but sometimes the marketplace may not fulfill the organization requirements. In this case, you may have to use own custom VHD which includes uploading VHD from on-premises to cloud or downloading from cloud to on-premises. When an organization wants VM having their LOB (Line of Business Application) installed, you as an Azure Admin need to play with images. It will be more time saving and effective to create images as per the organization needs and use the same image on both cloud and on-premises rather than installing LOB and other configuration in each VM individually. It will give a holistic view of VMs in both on-premises and cloud environment.Note: This lab creates several virtual machines at start time and will take approximately 15 minutes before it is ready.

In this lab, you will create an Azure Function that monitors a blob container in Azure Storage for new images, and then performs automated analysis of the images using the Microsoft Cognitive Services Computer Vision API. Specifically, The Azure Function will analyze each image that is uploaded to the container for adult or racy content and create a copy of the image in another container. Images that contain adult or racy content will be copied to one container, and images that do not contain adult or racy content will be copied to another. In addition, the scores returned by the Computer Vision API will be stored in blob metadata.
