Continuous Delivery anti-patterns from the wild Thu 6th Oct 13:40 - 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.
