Application Release Automation

Thursday, 19 June 2014 - 7:00pm

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.
