Continuous Delivery Theatre

Thu 6th Oct 13:40 to 14:10

Continuous Delivery anti-patterns from the wild

Continuous Delivery techniques and practices are often misunderstood. This session will explore some Continuous Delivery anti-patterns based on work 'in the wild' with a wide range of organisations across different industry sectors:
- Believing that "Continuous Delivery is not for us"
- Ignoring the database
- Thinking that a deployment pipeline is just a series of chained jobs in Jenkins
- Not measuring delays between value-add activities
- Ignoring Cost-of-Delay and job size
- Not funding the build/test/deployment capability properly
By avoiding these pitfalls, we can increase the effectiveness of our software delivery efforts.

What you will take away from this session

  • Why Continuous Delivery (CD) is useful for almost all modern software
  • How to approach CD for databases
  • How to make CD really 'fly' within the organisation
  • How to 'sell' CD to business stakeholders
