DevOps practices using VSAC help development teams keep builds and releases organized as they are distributed to collaborators, teams of testers, customer beta testers, all the way into app stores like Google Play and iTunes. This course covers the automation of time-consuming tasks such as builds and build signing within a streamlined workflow.
