Flickr deploy ten times each day... why don’t you?
Do you work in an organisation that deploys like Flickr? Or do you suffer “release trauma” where the last 5% of effort in integration, final testing, and deployment cost much more than expected, leaving you to continually revise release dates and frustrate customers and stakeholders alike?
As software development organisations evolve and mature, they naturally increase their capabilities and streamline their end-to-end processes. Having incorporated automated testing and Continuous Integration into their daily routine, development teams seek to clear the downstream bottlenecks in their pipelines, in "the last mile" between the end of development and production. Web 2.0 organisations often lead the way in this approach by being able to deploy complex software systems into production seemingly at will. This notion of a seamless stream of deployments into production is commonly referred to as Continuous Delivery.
As Continuous Delivery is an evolving school of thought and practise, we invite you to steer this discussion with our esteemed panelists: Neal Ford, Martin Fowler and Evan Bottcher. Collectively representing over 60 years of experience in software development environments, our panellists will discuss and debate the topics chosen by you, the audience.
To get you started, these global thought leaders are excited about topics like continuous integration, effective automated testing, automated database deployment, DSL’s, emergent design, infrastructure as code, public and private clouds and other software development technologies, practices and tools that support Continuous Delivery...
