    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.
