A tale of Continuous Delivery: From Commit to Production in a single click
Peter Van de Voorde, Atlassian
Once upon a time a developer slaved on his code, tested it locally and fired it off into oblivion (aka the shared disk...) only to forget about it for the next six months until release date!No longer should we be slaves to release dates and schedules, no longer will we need to argue about "But it runs on my machine!" Thanks to automation and continuous delivery we can be free! Free to code on important features, free of having to run tests ourselves, free of keeping all our environments in sync. And best of all: free to improve our products as fast as possible.
