    Continuous Delivery: DevOps Holy Grail

    4:30 pm, Friday. The CTO says “please deploy the latest version to production.” Look around. Who’s relaxing with a beer, who’s sweating, who’s closing their laptop and backing slowly out the door? What you see is how continuous your delivery is.

    Almost every company wants what CD promises: faster time to market, higher quality, lower costs, better products and happier teams. Some organizations have achieved a fully automated CD pipeline. For others, CD remains an elusive holy grail.

    What is continuous delivery? How is it different from continuous deployment and continuous integration? Why is it so hard to achieve?

    In this talk, we’ll discuss what continuous delivery is, its components and how to start building a culture that can make it happen.
