Devnology Podcast 23 - Continuous Delivery
In this episode we interview Dave Farley and Jez Humble about the content of their award-winning book on Continuous Delivery.
The basic premise of the book is that we need to move beyond Continoous Integration and occasional delivery and work towards practices that allow for the creation and deployment of final deliverables on all environments on every check-in. Jez and Dave explain the concepts behind the deployment pipeline and we discuss the practices and policies that come into play from the moment of check-in to updating the live version of software.
We talk about various strategies and patterns for testing, building and releasing software, and how these fit in with agile and lean software development.
This interview was recorded on the 13th of October 2011 at the wonderful GOTO Conference in Amsterdam. Special thanks to the folks at the Goto Conference for kindly letting us use their facilities!
