From Yearly to Always: A Continuous Delivery Roadmap
When starting up a greenfield project, it's easy to take advantage of the most modern development practices. But what about the rest of us, who are working on codebases greater than five minutes old? How do you take code that's ten years and hundreds of thousands of SLOC, and turn that into a lean, mean, continuous-delivering machine? In this talk, Melissa will walk through what continuous integration and deployment mean for teams working on mature codebases, and what the roadmap looks like to get from a release cycle that may take weeks or months to one that deploys on-demand. Expect to come away with a plan that you can implement, right now, on your own projects, with a clear view of potential pain points and pitfalls and real-world tradeoffs that your team will have to make.
