    The Business of Continuous Delivery

    Kurt Bittner, Principal Analyst, Forrester Research

    Faster application delivery enables competitive differentiation. Applications have become the means by which organizations attract customers and deliver value; better applications, delivered faster, drive faster business growth. Forward-focused application delivery organizations are reinventing themselves, shedding old processes, tools, and architectures to pave the way to better business results.

  • Managing the Process and Organizational Impact of Continuous Delivery

    Brent Hurley, Agile Coach and Regional Delivery Leader, Eliassen

    There's no continuous delivery silver bullet or one size fits all continuous delivery process for an entire enterprise. Every organization has its own unique set of needs, processes, culture that must adapt to continuous delivery. To catalyze a CD transformation, you must coordinate the process and organizational aspects of this transformation.

    Learn how to:

    • Avoid some of the common pitfalls and obstacles that often challenge continuous delivery endeavors.
    • Manage the cultural challenges inherent in an CD transformation
    • Establish a cycle of “continuous improvement”
    • Identify areas of waste and how to eliminate these
    • Increase the facilitation of business value from all teams



  • Automation: The Continuous Delivery Engine

    Steve Harris, SVP Products, CloudBees

    The right cultural values, and processes cannot alone keep pace with the demands for application delivery speed; automation technology is the engine that drives faster application delivery.
    Learn how:

    • Jenkins forms the backbone of an automated CD pipeline
    • Jenkins enables organizations to evolve from continuous integration (CI) to CD at their own pace
    • Jenkins serves as a bridge between development and ops teams, providing a common tool for both
    • Use of on premise and cloud technologies maximizes CD productivity



  • Continuous Delivery in the Real World

    Tim Mulligan, Director and ALM Architect, Fidelity Investments

    A behind the scenes look at how Fidelity Investments re-architected their application delivery processes and technologies to accelerate their ability respond to business needs and competitive threats.



Technical Afternoon

  • Keynote

    Continuous Integration through Continuous Delivery - Powered by Jenkins

    Kohsuke Kawaguchi, Jenkins Creator and CloudBees CTO

    Jenkins is architected as a platform for CI & CD.
    Learn how to:

    • Use Jenkins to create CD framework that uniquely meets the needs of your organization
    • Utilize Jenkins and its 900+ plugins for CI and extend it to CD utilizing the most popular plugins
    • Utilize new features in Jenkins for CD, such as traceability and workflow



  • Accelerating Application Delivery with Continuous Testing

    Peter Galvin, Sr VP of Marketing, SOASTA

    Ensure quality throughout the application lifecycle through automated testing – increasing speed and eliminating manual processes – to continuously deliver quality user experiences.
    Learn how to:

    • Create a continuous testing framework
    • Trigger testing every time code changes are delivered
    • Integrate with Jenkins for continuous functional and performance testing



  • Application Release Automation

    T. J. Randall, Director of Sales Engineering, XebiaLabs

    Jenkins provides a host of options and plugins to build flows of automated tasks to start moving from Continuous Integration to Continuous Delivery. After presenting some of the most useful plugins we use on a regular basis, we’ll discuss the types of Continuous Delivery pipelines we see people building in practice. We’ll focus on the challenge of getting pipelines to really go all the way to production and examine why that “last mile” is critical for Continuous Delivery. To close, we’ll discuss strategies and tools for getting Release Management and other “last mile” stakeholders on board with Continuous Delivery, and gradually go from Almost CD to Real CD.



  • Automating Infrastructure

    James Sweeny, Professional Services Engineer

    Automating the configuration and provisioning of infrastructure is a key tenet of Continuous Delivery. An automated infrastructure can accelerate your time to market and help you manage scale and complexity.
    Learn how to:

    • Provision server environments automatically
    • Manage configurations
    • Integrate and leverage Jenkins
