WHAT: “Continuous Delivery” – May 9, 2011 – 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. (Jez Humble and Tom Sulston)
Getting software released to users is often a painful, risky and time-consuming process. Humble and Sulston will lay out the principles and technical practices that enable rapid, incremental delivery of high quality, valuable new functionality to users. Through automation of the build, deployment and testing process, and improved collaboration between developers, testers and operations, delivery teams can get changes released in a matter of hours–sometimes even minutes–no matter the size of a project or the complexity of its code base.
“Remediation Patterns – How to Achieve Low Risk Releases” – May 11, 2011 – 10:35 a.m. – 11:35 a.m. (Jez Humble)
Deployments gone bad are a leading cause of developers spending their evening or weekend hunched over a terminal instead of outdoors having fun. Humble presents a number of patterns that reduce the risk of releases, including techniques for zero-downtime releases, roll-backs and roll forwards. He also discusses how to build reliable releases into the delivery process using automated provisioning, deployment and smoke testing.
“DevOps Counseling: 10 ways to help your Dev and Ops people resolve their differences and learn to love each other again” – May 11, 2011 – 14:05 p.m. – 15:05 p.m. (Tom Sulston)
One of the practices encouraged by DevOps is the creation of cross-functional delivery teams that contain all of the skills necessary to bring software from concept to production. In the enterprise, unfortunately, development and operations teams have historically been separate groups; each with their own management, reporting, tools, and practices. Bringing these teams closer together involves a clash of cultures & values that can be both disheartening and unhelpful. In this session, I propose my top ten tips for helping development and operations people overcome their differences and start truly collaborating on the practices necessary to create and run great software.
