Create Azure devops free account

As of my last knowledge update in January 2022, Azure DevOps Services, which provides a set of development tools, including version control, build automation, release management, and more, offers a free tier that you can use to get started. Follow below steps in order to create a free Azure DevOps account.

1. Visit the Azure DevOps Services Website: Open your web browser and go to the Azure DevOps Services website at

2. Sign Up for Azure DevOps:

  • Click on the “Get started for free” or “Start free” button on the homepage.

  • You’ll be prompted to sign in with your Microsoft account (formerly known as Live ID). If you don’t have one, you can create a new Microsoft account.

  • Follow the sign-up process, which may include verifying your email and providing some basic information.

3. Set Up Your Organization:

  • Once you’ve signed in, you’ll need to create an organization. An organization in Azure DevOps is a way to group your projects and manage access.

  • Provide a unique name for your organization, and choose your region and time zone.

  • Click “Continue.”

4. Choose a Free Plan:

  • Azure DevOps offers a free plan that includes up to 5 users and unlimited stakeholders. You can select this free plan during the setup process.

  • You can also choose to start a free trial of Azure DevOps, which may include additional features beyond the free tier.

5. Configure Additional Settings:

  • Follow the setup wizard to configure additional settings for your organization. This may include choosing a project management process (Agile, Scrum, etc.), and you can also set up repositories, pipelines, boards, and other services.

6. Start Using Azure DevOps:

  • After completing the setup, you’ll be directed to your Azure DevOps organization. From there, you can create projects, repositories, and start managing your software development process.

What Next?

Please note that while Azure DevOps offers a free tier, there may be some limitations on the number of users and resources in the free plan. Be sure to check the Azure DevOps pricing and documentation for the most up-to-date information on what’s included in the free tier. Keep in mind that the process or offerings might have changed since my last update in January 2022, so I recommend visiting the Azure DevOps website for the most current information and to set up your free account.
