In this lab, you will use GitHub and the Microsoft Azure cloud platform together to build an application lifecycle management (ALM) environment. You will use GitHub to fork a repository and manage a project with issues and tasks. You will use Microsoft Azure as the deployment target for your forked application and will set up continuous delivery so that your resolution of the issues in the GitHub, along with the associated source code commits, will trigger automatic deployment to Azure for immediate verification of the fixes.
In this exercise, you will create an account on GitHub.com, if you do not already have one. After that, you will use your GitHub account to create a fork of a public repository.
