  • CI is based on the observation that the longer development streams diverge, the more painful the eventual integration will be. Taking the converse of the above statement, the more frequently developers integrate their changes, the more painless those integrations will be
  • It’s arguably the most important test. Non-compiling code, really hurts the rest of your team

    • 1. Rising Above the Noise: Continuous Integration, C. Delivery, DevOps and What They Mean to You1
    • 2. Maciej Zawadzki• Cofounder and CEO of Urbancode• Original author of AnthillPro. Architect of Urbancode’sDevOps Platform.• Blog:• Twitter: @devl_in_details2
    • 3. Eric Minick• Lead Consultant• Worked as a dev, tester, and release guy• Dozens of enterprise rollouts• Blog:• Twitter: @EricMinick3
    • 4. Agenda• Continuous Integration• Continuous Delivery• DevOps• The Future• Resources4
    • 5. CI: it’s about Quality Determination• Integrating frequently is less painful than infrequently. – But, If we commit frequently blindly, we have a broken code base• Implied condition: each integration will not decrease the code quality. – This is the key to CI – The rest is implementation details.5 you-dont-really-get-it/
    • 6. CI: the Implemention• How do we determine code quality? We test it• How do we test code? We build it and run tests against it• CI requires fast feedback, so what tests do we run? Unit tests• This is how we get from CI to CI servers and software builds6
    • 7. CI: the Disruption of Build Management• Paradigm change: similar to structure of scientific revolutions – Thomas Kuhn• Before CI, build engineers would: – Manually perform the build• After the paradigm change, build engineers would: – Design the build process for projects. The actual build execution is handled by a tool.7
    • 8. CI: the Bumps• CI Builds • Build Management Builds – Purpose: determine – Purpose: produce artifacts quality of latest changes for 3rd parties – Audience: development – Audience: 3rd parties team outside development – Source: Build is traceable – Source: Build is traceable to latest changes and to source “latest” source – Artifacts: Throw away – Artifacts: Important builds, tests are builds, artifacts are important important and primary8
    • 9. CI: the Innovation of Automation• Invention: proven to work in the laboratory• Innovation: it can be replicated reliably on a meaningful scale at practical costs.• For an idea to move from invention to innovation requires an ensemble of critical components. Peter M. Senge, The Fifth Discipline• CI brings together “critical” factors: – Automation – Self-service – Transparency/Visibility9
    • 10. CI: Summary• CI requires the determination of code quality• CI disrupted Build Management• CI represents the Innovation of Automation10
    • 11. Agenda• Continuous Integration• Continuous Delivery• DevOps• The Future• Resources11
    • 12. Continuous Delivery: What is it?• Continuation of the Quality Determination that CI started.• Functional tests require deployment.• Progression through environments on a march to production, with “the build” subjected to more exhaustive tests in each environment. Build & Deploy to Functional Deploy to Integration Deploy to Deploy to Unit Test DEV Tests SIT Tests UAT PROD12
    • 13. Continuous Delivery: The Drivers• Quality Determination: – CI left unfinished business on the table. – Further tests require deployments.• Agile: keeping up with the pace.• Innovation of Automation: self-service and visibility have a powerful attraction13
    • 14. Continuous Delivery: the Details• Deploying multi-tiered applications is not trivial. – Application model – Component (tier) model – Mapping of components to servers in each Env.• Multiple Tiers – Database changes – Middleware code changes – Middleware config changes – Flat file changes• Multi-environment deployments – Handle different environment topologies – Handle different environment configurations14
    • 15. Continuous Delivery & Mountain Bikes• How many people own a mountain bike?• How many people ever took it down a mountain?• The guys that deploy to production 50 times a day drive their mountain bike down the mountain.• The rest of us benefit from the technology as we have a comfortable ride on the park trails with our kids.15
    • 16. Continuous Delivery: Theory & Reality• The reality is that: – Dev and Ops are in different silos – Dev and Ops use different tools – Dev produces change, Ops seeks to control change – 50 page Word doc is the standard hand-off between Dev and Ops16
    • 17. Continuous Delivery: Summary• CD follows through on what CI started, the quality determination• CD works for basic deployments, but struggles in the complex• CD reality is that most organizations use it in lower environments only17
    • 18. Agenda• Continuous Integration• Continuous Delivery• DevOps• The Future• Resources18
    • 19. DevOps: the Drivers• The Cloud (Iaas / PaaS): – Has all the “critical” factors for Innovation – Self-service is a radical shift in the SLA• Hand-off document leads to errors• Agile & Business leads to faster pace19
    • 20. DevOps: the Disruption• Cloud offers an alternative to Enterprise IT• Enterprise IT will need to match the SLA• Private cloud is a way to remain competitive• Adopting cloud automation is a paradigm shift• Paradigm shift opens the flood gates for deployment automation20
    • 21. DevOps: the Implementation, Convergence• Virtualization as a base• PaaS is utilized: – Application teams may request environments for their applications. – Environments are configured with OS / DB / Middleware / etc. (System Config Tools)• Application Deployment to provisioned environments. (ARA tools)21
    • 22. DevOps: the Bumps AheadDev Ops• Very High Tempo • Slower Tempo• Can rebuild database / app • Incremental updates to from scratch Database and App – No need for Rollbacks – Rollbacks are huge• Audit is nice to have • Audit Critical – Security, traceability, – Security, traceability, separ separation of duties. ation of duties.• New Environments are • New environments are common rare22
    • 23. The Summary• CI represents Innovation of Automation• CI got us started down the road towards PROD• CD continued the work that CI started• CD provides basic deploy hooked into CI• ARA provides complex deployments for Ops• DevOps will disrupt Ops the same way CI disrupted Build Management• DevOps opens the door for the convergence with Dev practices such as CD23
    • 24. Agenda• Continuous Integration• Continuous Delivery• DevOps• The Future• Resources24
    • 25. Where are we headed?• Private clouds (or public/private)• Platform as a service – Servers with middleware, properly configured, managed, and available self-service.• Application deployment onto the platform• Release Management – Tracks builds through the (PaaS) environments from CI to Production. – Same deployment process for all environments25
    • 26. Where are the tools headed?• Pre-2006: Just CI tools• 2006-2010: CI becomes Continuous Delivery – First end-to-end tool is AnthillPro in 2006.• Now: DevOps – CI is commodity. – CD tools moving towards CI + ARA – Expanding integrations with private cloud26
    • 27. Agenda• Continuous Integration• Continuous Delivery• DevOps• The Future• Resources27
    • 28. More on CI, CD, and DevOpsWebinars and more:• Death to Manual Deployments!• Build & Deployment Automation for the Lean Economy• Enterprise DevOps: Scaling Build, Deploy, Test, ReleaseYou should follow
    • 29. Yes, UrbanCode has tools that help• DevOps Platform – uBuild: Continuous Integration and Build Management – uDeploy: Model driven deployment automation – uCloud: Environment provisioning integrated with existing virtualization (coming soon)29
