Crossing the Continuous Delivery Chasm

J. Paul Reed, Release Engineering Approaches

In this talk, we'll explore what goes into implementing a continuous delivery pipeline – including the key operational requirements that aren't always glamorous, but are often forgotten, downplayed, or ignored. We'll also take a look at the organizational dynamics that must be thought through when moving towards a continuous delivery model.
