How to Leverage Visual Studio Online and Azure Pipelines to migrate your development environment to the Cloud!

Introduction: With my previous blog, I had explained how to configure CI/CD for Microsoft Dynamics Business Central. The only drawback when it comes to developing in VS Code Online is that it works with Base Operating System as Linux.
