Thursday 16.45 - 17.35 in: Grinding the Crack
This talk focuses on the kinds of constraints we should consider when evolving their architecture of our systems in order to enable rapid, frequent release. So much of the conversation about Continuous Delivery focuses on the design of build pipelines, or the nuts and bolts of CI and infrastructure automation.
But often the biggest constraint in being able to incrementally roll out new features are the problems in the design of the system itself. I’ll be pulling together a series of patterns that will help you identify what to look for in your own systems when moving towards Continuous Delivery.
Thursday 11.10 - 12.00 in: Grinding the Crack
Continuous Delivery is gaining lots of traction right now, blending aspects of the DevOps & Agile movements to help deliver our software more predictably & faster than ever before to our clients. But how do you actually do it? Where should you start? And what tools should you be using?
Based on real-world experience helping clients adopt CD, this talk will address everything from CI, infrastructure automation, build pipelines, IAAS, to monitoring & analytics.
