How do move from releasing every few months, to weeks and then perhaps daily?
Is “Fail fast, Learn fast” the way to get there? Enough of talk… I’d like to see how it really can be done?
Please do join us for our Go User Group webinar (GUG) on Tue, Oct 30, 2012. This interactive (plenty of Q&A time) webinar will feature two 20-25 min presentations:
- CD from months to weeks to days with Go by John Esser, Director of Engineering Productivity and Agile Development at Ancestry.com
John architected Ancestry’s transformation to Agile development and continuous delivery. He will run us through the highs, lows and nitty gritties of crossing that all-important chasm to optimizing your CD goal. And how Go enabled them in their pursuit.
- How Luau uses Go’s’ Fan-in feature by Badrinath Janakiraman, Awesome Developer at ThoughtWorks Studios
Badrinath will showcase how his team leveraged the new Go Fan-in/Fan-out functionality while building their Single Sign-On system on steroids and how it enabled them to continuously test and release against multiple integration points under active development without manual regression testing.
