Once you decide that you want to go for Agile methodology then you decide which process from the Agile methodology you want to follow, Scrum or Extreme Programming, Adaptive System Development, DSDM (Dynamic System Development Method), Feature Driven Development, Kanban, Crystal, etc.

After installing Visual Studio build tools on the build servers, msbuild started working smoothly. In this blog I'll try to outline the challenges and steps we followed to get our complete CI/CD environment setup and configured with Jenkins
