How to Prevent Catastrophic Doom on Your Next Federal Project
Trying to achieve real Continuous Deployments into production is hard for everyone, but it’s especially hard for highly regulated or government projects. These types of challenges range from client-specific, such as a set of manual checks and validations that "need" to be performed and culturally not understanding Agile or DevOps, to more generic problems like how to version microservices and promote potentially breaking changes. In this talk, join Ryan Kenney as he discusses ways that he and his team have overcome obstacles to reaching CD. First Ryan will give an overview of the project and some of the problems they’ve faced. Then, he will discuss how he was able to mitigate the lack of CD to an actual production environment by creating "Developer Production," and focusing the CD around that. You can expect to learn all about what problems to expect when trying to implement CD in a federal, or any other highly regulated, environment, as well as example solutions to those problems.
