KEYNOTE : davefarleyDave Farley – Continuous Delivery

Dave Farley is co-author of the Jolt award winning book ‘Continuous Delivery’ and one of the authors of the ‘Reactive Manifesto’. He has been having fun with computers for over 30 years. Over that period he has worked on most types of software, from firmware, through tinkering with operating systems and device drivers, to writing games, and commercial applications of all shapes and sizes.

He started working in large scale distributed systems about 25 years ago, doing research into the development of loose-coupled, message-based systems – a forerunner of MicroService architectures. He has a wide range of experience leading the development of complex software in teams, both large and small, in the UK and USA. Dave was an early adopter of agile development techniques, employing iterative development, continuous integration and significant levels of automated testing on commercial projects from the early 1990s.
