Pros: There is a ton of features.

They just did a new design and rebranded it.

You can set automatic builds to test your code.

It allows for organized planning through the Boards section.

There is easy integration with Azure Cloud.

It allows use of either Git or TFVC.

Cons: With all of the features, it's easy to get lost.

Settings and security seems to be all over the place, so it's hard to track down the setting you need.

There's a learning curve if you haven't used VSTS or TFS before.

Overall: Dev Ops (VSTS or TFS) has been the main place I store my code through version control and plan out projects for my current and previous job. Either way of version control you use for your code (TFVC or Git) has a great integration with Visual Studio. From there you can check in or push your changes and once it's hooked up to Dev Ops, it'll appear in the Repos section. You can set the code to build and run all tests by setting a new build in the Pipeline section, along with setting up builds for releases. These have helped immensely when dealing with the program working on other computers.

The main issue I've had with Dev Ops is finding some settings. There has been a few times where it took diving into a few different spots just to figure out how to customize a field. It's also easy to get lost when you're still learning, as there is so much out there.

Pros: Microsoft Visual Studio Team Service DevOps is also known as VSTS DevOps. Development in DevOPS methodology is way fast then the agile. It accelerates the development process and developer. Build & Release is also enhance from the previous version and easy to manage the complex merges while release of the different product. Continuous delivery of the product also help the developer to work and focus on the single task which help in increasing the productivity. Automation Test and Monitoring of application possible with it.

Cons: TFSVC work-space are complex and managing the permission for security is mess up if we select some inappropriate setting. Resolving and fixing it is a big challenge., Microsoft should come with the backup or restore point for the same so if it can be easy to fix can and restore on the earlier position.

Overall: Microsoft VSTS DevOps is the best move by the Microsoft, as DevOps is the advanced software development strategy. Continuous Testing with integration of xUnit, jUnit and Selenium make it more flexible. Automation build & Deploy with vNext is good as compared to XML build. Collection code coverage is also good. The Azure DevOps enables DevOps for all platform's software development.

Pros: VSTS DevOps provide the complete integrity with Development and Operational work. The architecture is helping in boosting the development & Operational process. VSTS take care for complete CI/CD pipeline. Best and loving part in it is that it provide freedom in selecting the TFVC or GIT as version controlling.

Integrity with Azure Cloud is also good which it make this tool a complete DevOps system so that it can be achieve the deployment part with zero outage. XAML and vNext build help in deployment of 100's servers without any human error, as it just need one time setup for builds.

Cons: Installation architecture of VSTS DevOps having a lot of curves, Build Controller and Gated Build need time to setup and Microsoft should make it easy to under and setup. In last few years I am seeing the changes the it moving towards the web-based application, Console like security and permission are now only available in web base pages only.

Overall: VSTS DevOps is helping use to manage team ,code and operation. We are using it with Azure Cloud and the experience is really good. vNext build is able to build the .net Core application easily.

Pros: VSTS DevOps has allowed our team to automate the builds of almost all of our products scaling our release time down and boosting our reliability. We used to be manually deploying our assets which would often cause breaking changes and would spend a day trying to revert the issues but since moving to VSTS DevOps we've been able to roll back versions instantly anytime there are problems but most of the time there aren't issues since VSTS DevOps sends your packages through a build cycle that checks compiler errors.

Cons: Some of the terminology is a little confusing and sometimes it can be hard to find your way around but well worth it once you get your builds setup.

Overall: VSTS DevOps allowed our team to manage our own DevOps and learn more about DevOps without needing to hire and be mentored by DevOps professionals.

Pros: Most of all, I like how easy it is to track my work and the work of everyone on the team. Coming from a waterfall development cycle to an agile one, it's a big adjustment, and VSTS DevOps helps make that process easier.

Cons: Okay, this might be indicitve of my product manager more than the software itself, but I'd like it if Acceptance Criteria and Steps to Recreate were required fields in any Bug/PBI (where applicable). It would lead to much better work.

Overall: I use VSTS Devops as an end user, and let me tell you, it was a big change from my old way of doing things. At my company, we used a combination of SURE and Unisys's Albert in order to keep track of our work. It took a while to get used to VSTS. Everything was in one place, set up for an agile framework, but when I finally got used to it, I loved it so much more.

Pros: Visual Studio Team Service DevOps is the one of the best move of the Microsoft. Build & release process for continuous integration delivery that work all platform. Version Controlling is having the two option in GIT and TFSVC for managing the code. Tracking on work is also easy and as developer and manager can check their capacity and work backlogs. Custom reporting can also help you preparing charts. VSTS also Test for your code.

Cons: The least thing I like in it is not covering the monitoring the aspect under the name of DevOps. As a continues feedback is also very important with corresponding to the development. Build automation should simplify and for release management they should provide recommendation for the best practice to implementation.

Overall: Visual Studio Team Service is helping use to jump to the DevOps Development process methodology. The new vNEXT build is really a game changer as once the gated check-in is configure you can Do anything with the builds to play with the code according your need and requirement.

Pros: VSTS provides everything our team needs to manage our work, code, continuous integration, and deployment. In the past, i would have 1 or 2 people dedicated to building and maintaining the tools the VSTS provides.

Cons: I wish there was better integration with non microsoft tools like Slack.

Overall: It is a great solution if you have your cloud service as Azure.

Pros: Easy to create and assign work. Also simple to attach even really large files such as artwork. Also you can create different projects to keep work separate.

Cons: Hard to knock the product, except it doesn't have a tickler feature to remind you there is work you haven't done. If staff forgot about it, it might not be discovered for quite a long time. This usually happened with small tasks/projects though so not like a big process was missed. Still a great produce though.

Pros: The ability to create Epics, Features, User Stories and Tasks all within the same application and have a place for the developers to store their code. This application has made my working life much easy, I'm able to gauge the time commitments of sprints much better and more realistic.

Cons: I want to be able to bucket tasks a little more within a project. I'm still working on trying to create some kind of bucket system without using the iterations. I know I probably am just not familiar with it enough yet but I'll get there.

Overall: Biggest benefit is its online source code repository. You dont have to be on company network now to work. You can code and check your code online.
