Six Small Steps Towards Continuous Delivery
It's 12 years since the eponymous Continuous Delivery book (Farley/Humble) was published. Many conference talks and articles assume that CD is a done deal. But the State of DevOps Report 2022 shows that 90% of respondents have deployment frequencies and lead times of between 1 week and 6 months (compared to the 10% of 'high performers' who can release on-demand - the very definition of Continuous Delivery). This talk aims to avoid just describing what the destination looks like, but instead focuses on six, tangible, independent actions that delivery teams can take, to move towards - or to improve - their continuous delivery ambitions.
Key takeaways…
Whatever your role on a team, understanding these small steps should help you to move closer to the original aims of Continuous Delivery: …to make software deployments painless, low-risk events that can be performed at any time, on demand.
