Watch AKS Edge Essentials Architecture with @liorkamrat
The following Jumpstart scenario will show how to create an AKS Edge Essentials cluster in Azure Windows Server VM and connect the Azure VM and AKS Edge Essentials cluster to Azure Arc using Azure ARM Template. The provided ARM template is responsible for creating the Azure resources as well as executing the LogonScript (AKS Edge Essentials cluster creation and Azure Arc onboarding (Azure VM and AKS Edge Essentials cluster)) on the Azure VM.
With Windows Admin Center you can remotely manage Windows Server running anywhere—physical, virtual, on-premises, in Azure, or in a hosted environment.
The tool, available with your Windows Server license at no additional charge, consolidates and reimagines Windows OS tools in a single, browser-based, graphical user interface.
At Microsoft Ignite 2021 Global Virtual Event they launched Windows Admin Center version 2103. Here you find the download.
Set Proxy Server in Windows Admin Center Settings.

Configure continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD) for your IoT Edge application with DevOps Projects. DevOps Projects simplifies the initial configuration of a build and release pipeline in Azure Pipelines.
In the following steps you can see how easy it is to build your Continuous integration and continuous deployment to Azure IoT Edge with DevOps Project :
Select Simple IoT
Click on Next.
From here you set your Azure DevOps organization to your Azure IoT Hub. Click on additional settings
In additional settings you can set :
Azure Resource Group
Location ( region)
Container Registry name
Container registry SKU
IoT Hub of Edge Devices
IoT Hub Location
Select Container Registry Plan
Azure Container Registry allows you to store images for all types of container deployments including DC/OS, Docker Swarm, Kubernetes, and Azure services such as App Service, Batch, Service Fabric, and others. Your DevOps team can manage the configuration of apps isolated from the configuration of the hosting environment.

Azure DevOps Project will do the rest of the deployment.
Of course Infrastructure as Code (IaC) is possible by ARM JSON Template.
Your Continuous integration and continuous deployment to Azure IoT Edge is deployed and active. Now you have your Azure Pipeline in place to continuously update your IoT Device App. From here you can go to Azure DevOps Project Homepage.
Via Agent phase you can see all the jobs of the deployment.
Azure DevOps Pipeline Release
here we have Azure DevOps Repos
Azure DevOps Services includes free unlimited private Git repos, so Azure Repos is easy to try out. Git is the most commonly used version control system today and is quickly becoming the standard for version control. Git is a distributed version control system, meaning that your local copy of code is a complete version control repository. These fully functional local repositories make it easy to work offline or remotely. You commit your work locally, and then sync your copy of the repository with the copy on the server.
Git in Azure Repos is standard Git. You can use the clients and tools of your choice, such as Git for Windows, Mac, partners’ Git services, and tools such as Visual Studio and Visual Studio Code.
