You've toiled hard on your code, tested it locally, and you're confident it's ready to go. But how long until you see it in production? For some teams, it can be months or even years. By the time your new feature or bug fix gets used in anger, you've forgotten what you did! But with a great deployment pipeline and some clever architecture, there's a better way.

This session is packed with war stories and real world successes. We'll walk through the realities of a no-touch deployment pipeline that you can trust all the way to production, and we'll examine some clever architectural patterns to enable true software agility. By the end, you'll be convinced that if it's not in production, it doesn't count. If you struggle to get updates in the hands of users, this is the session for you.

You will learn:

  • The importance of a delivery pipeline that focuses on automation and filtering to get good stuff to production quickly, and keep the bad stuff out
  • How to get started on a pipeline that lets you do no-touch deployments to production safely and quickly
