Gastvortrag "Continuous Delivery: Myths and Realities" von Mario Fernandez

Am 24.10.2019 hält Mario Fernandez, Absolvent des ersten Jahrgangs des Elitestudiengangs Software Engineering, ab 16:30 Uhr einen Gastvortrag in der Ringvorlesung des Elitestudiengangs Software Engineering. Das Thema lautet "Continuous Delivery: Myths and Realities". Der Vortrag findet in Raum 1056N statt. Alle sind herzlich eingeladen.


Everybody claims to do continuous delivery nowadays, just like everybody follows DevOps principles and is truly Agile (with a capital A). In reality, there is a lot of "calorie free" CI/CD going on out there, where a lonely Jenkins job that is broken half of the time is all that you've got.

If we focus on first principles, doing continuous delivery is quite straightforward:

* Build quality in

* Work in small batches

* Automation

* Continuous improvement

* Shared responsibility

How does that look in practice? Glad you asked! I have thought about this long and hard the last years. I'm going to walk you over what I consider a good setup to achieve this, in terms of technology, practices and process. I'll mention some antipatterns I've encountered while working together with some very big german companies.
