Continuous Delivery with a Rapid Deployment Pipeline
Tuesday, June 7, 2011 8:30 a.m.— 4:30 p.m. (Pacific)
To capitalize on new business opportunities and create a competitive advantage, businesses need to rapidly deliver compelling new features to their customers and users—all the while ensuring that software releases are robust and well-tested. Fowler and Humble will discuss how developers can organize development processes to deliver features rapidly and reliably through a surprising pattern of build-deploy-test-release they call the rapid deployment pipeline. After introducing the value and principles of Continuous Delivery, the presenters will explain the deployment pipeline in detail—starting from the end goal of release, moving back through testing, then back to deployment and development practices. Along the way they will discuss how to improve collaboration and feedback to speed up delivery. Fowler and Humble will then dive into the Continuous Delivery ecosystem and explore ways to manage the components, data and infrastructure needed to implement Continuous Delivery. Importantly, they cover the transformation many teams and organizations must make to roll out a successful rapid deployment pipeline.
