Get set up
You’ll need an account on VSTS. To create one, visit Sign up for VSTS.
You can also use Team Foundation Server (TFS) if your organization requires the use of on-premises servers instead of VSTS, and we’ll show some of those details. Also see Get Started with TFS for general information.

Creating a release pipeline relies on having your application code in version control. To set up a local repository and connect it to a remote repository in a team project, follow the instructions in either Share your code with Git and Visual Studio or Share your code with TFVC and Visual Studio.
