(Talk given at Continuous Lifecycle London 2016)
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 funding the build/test/deployment capability properly
- No effective logging or application metrics
By avoiding these pitfalls, we can increase the effectiveness of our software delivery efforts.
