So You Want To Go Faster? A Roadmap for Continuous Deployment (Daniel Davis)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

How frequently does a good agile team deploy to production? Not every team is capable of deploying "on every commit". What does it take for a team to even start deploying at the end of each sprint, or each week, or each day?
Most companies don't realize that deploying more frequently often requires both significant technical change as well as cultural change. In this talk, I'll guide you through what it takes to deploy more frequently. I'll draw on the unique challenges that teams must overcome at each step of the way, from deploying once a month all the way down to full continuous delivery. If your team has been struggling to go faster, come see how you can change to get there. And if you already are at full continuous delivery, come see how to go even faster than that!

Learning Outcomes:
  • Attendees should leave the talk with a full understanding of the different challenges for deploying at these intervals:
  • - Once per sprint
  • - Every few days
  • - Daily
  • - On Every Commit
  • Attendees will learn about important DevOps techniques, including:
  • - Blue/Green Deployments
  • - Feature Toggles
  • Attendees will be able to answer to these common cultural questions:
  • - Why does more frequent deployment not translate into more risk?
  • - How do you ensure quality without a dedicated QA team of manual testers?
  • - Do all deployments deliver functionality?
  • - Is it actually ok to let commits go to production without human intervention?
