Presentation: "Continuous Delivery Warstories"

Track: Fast and Continous Delivery / Time: Monday 11:30 - 12:20 / Location: Grandball

A poor development process can actually make you sick. Let’s improve!

In this session you will learn how we at Debitoor we have gone from 14 day sprints to Continuous Deployment. We deploy to production ten times a day or more.

Learn why you would want to do Continuous Delivery, what are some of the benefits?

I will share the story about the transformation of our development process. How we have focused on not just delivering higher quality, but also doing it faster.

You will hear about our git branching strategy, with only one long lived branch and feature branches. Feature branches are not evil, they are great, if you use them like we do.

We’ve radically changed the roles of developers and in the process also shut down both the QA and Operations departments.

Finally I will be sharing our actual measured improvements made from moving to Continuous Delivery, I personally think the results are quite impressive. At least much better than we had dared to hope for.
