DevOps For ASP.NET Developers Pt.6 - Release Pipelines

After your application has gone through a build and has been tested by QA, the next step is to deploy it. This may be as simple as copying your build artifact to a web server. This could also mean publishing your build to multiple targets such a server cluster or a mobile application marketplace.
