If you write code to SQL Server then you might be interested in this: at the end of 2017 I wrote a tSQLt tdd training course which has helped over 300 people learn both tSQLt and how to apply TDD practices to their SQL Server T-SQL development, you can join the course at https://courses.agilesql.club. The course is free if you are happy to wait 10 weeks to complete it, with 1 lesson being made available per week - if you are in more of a hurry or you would like to help support the project you can purchase the course which makes it instantly available to you.

How do I use VSTS variables in YAML CI Build definitions?

Hey, VSTS YAML builds are my new favorite thing, by like a million miles.

If you have a yaml build definition ( .vsts-ci.yml ) and you want to use one of the build variables then it isn’t totally clear how to include them in a definition (it hasn’t been out long so I expect more docs to come soon), while we wait for the docs if you want to use one of the variables from https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/vsts/build-release/concepts/definitions… use this format:

$(Build.SourcesDirectory)

Simple! On the page https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/vsts/build-release/concepts/definitions… each variable has two definitions, use the top one so Build.Thing rather than the upper case single word like BUILD_THING.

ok?
