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 measuring delays between value-add activities
- Ignoring Cost-of-Delay and job size
- Not funding the build/test/deployment capability properly
By avoiding these pitfalls, we can increase the effectiveness of our software delivery efforts.
Attendees will learn:
1. Why Continuous Delivery (CD) is useful for almost all modern software
2. How to approach CD for databases
3. How to make CD really 'fly' within the organisation
4. How to 'sell' CD to business stakeholders
