This presentation on The 10 Commandments of Release Engineering is from the December 2013 Automated Testing San Francisco meetup that took place at New Relic's HQ in San Francisco. The author/presenter is Dinah McNutt, Release Engineer at Google. Dinah distills the truths that she's found in her 20 years of building commercial software.
For each truth, she will provide reasons and examples that support the truth. Some of the commandments are controversial, but she will include examples of where these commandments do not apply.
Feel free to join us at our next monthly meetup in San Francisco, New York, or Boston. Find us at #AutoTestSF / #AutoTestNYC / #AutoTestBoston
