As it been mentioned usage of cognitive services, would the main focus be on the building and deploying the already built application on the cloud platform or on the language features of the Android application ?

Hello Divya,

For continuous delivery, it's worth taking a look at "Continuous Delivery" by Jez Humble and Dave Farley. We build our code using Jenkins and the Google Play plugin

https://wiki.jenkins.io/display/JENKINS/Google+Play+Android+Publisher+Plugin

If you're building in the cloud, you will probably want to look at cloud-based device-testing. The Firebase test lab is a good place to start. They give you an hour free usage per day, which should be enough to get you started. Another service to look at is Monkop, which uses cloud-based devices to look for instability in your code.

Hello Divya,

No I'm afraid we simply didn't have space to fit Devops within the book. We're over 900 pages, and I think O'Reilly would be concerned about giving our learners a hernia if the book got any bigger :-)

But seriously, DevOps is not simply an Android topic, but a huge area that encompasses many different disciplines. It would be worth looking at some of the references we mentioned if that's your particular area of interest.

D+D
