Businesses rely on getting valuable new software into the hands of users as fast as possible, while making sure that they keep their production environments stable. Continuous Delivery is a revolutionary and scalable agile methodology that enables any team, including teams within enterprise IT organizations, to achieve rapid, reliable releases through better collaboration between developers, testers, DBAs and operations, and automation of the build, deploy, test and release process.
Jez will start by discussing the value of CD to the business, inspired by the lean startup movement. He will then present the principles and practices involved in continuous delivery, including value stream mapping, the deployment pipeline, acceptance test driven development, zero-downtime releases, and incremental development. Next he will cover how CD is enabled by an ecosystem including Devops, cloud computing, agile testing, and continuous deployment. Finally, he will describe how continuous delivery can co-exist with ITIL and compliance in an enterprise environment.
