Updated on 12 August to add text on benefits and deploying to a subset of users. Nov 10, Inga Ingucis rated it it was amazing. When we talk about components, we mean a reasonably large-scale code structure within an application, with a well-defined API, that could potentially be swapped out for another implementation.

Getting all this working takes effort, but benefits are profound. I stopped at around chapter 9 and after having around 6 months of experience on a project that uses deployment pipelines and tools e.

In this talk, Jez will argue this is not a recruitment problem but an organizations failure. The primary goal of continuous delivery is to make software deployments painless, low-risk events that can be performed at any time, on demand. With continuous integration, your software is proven to work assuming a sufficiently comprehensive set of automated tests with every new change—and you know the moment it breaks and can fix it immediately. Bit of dry in the writing but worth the read.

Lots of good material in here and parts of it are dated being 8 years later. This is the time between deciding that a feature needs to be implemented and having that feature released to users.

Without continuous integration, your software is broken deliveryy somebody proves it works, usually during a testing or integration stage. Continuous Deployment means that every change goes through the pipeline and automatically gets put into production, resulting in many production deployments every day.


Customers are usually interested in throughput or capacity. Jun 14, Michael Koltsov rated it liked it. Some years ago, I had the fortune to attend Jes Humble’s workshop on continuous delivery.

Jul 13, By applying patterns such as blue-green deployments it is relatively straightforward to achieve zero-downtime deployments that are undetectable to users. I was, therefore, surprised that it turned out to be such a struggle to read this book.

Continuous Delivery: Reliable Software Releases Through Build, Test, and Deployment Automation

This is the best book about Deployment I’ve read so far. Jan 26, Kev rated it really liked it. It is always limited by some bottleneck in the system.

We discuss practices such as layering acceptance tests to reduce coupling between the test harness, and talk about how teams should be organized in order to efficiently manage acceptance test driven development. Howe It’s a great book to take a perfect grasp of software release strategies. He will also address some common organizational obstacles to moving fast at scale: Languages rise and fall. If that isn’t an opportunity for an illustration, I don’t know what is. It’s humlbe great book hubmle take a perfect grasp of software release strategies.

Initially, the concepts made sense but I found it hard to apply them without project experience.

May 06, Yevgeniy Brikman rated it liked it. The core of the talk discusses how to manage the evolution of acceptance tests by organizing them as scenarios deliveery than as suites of story tests.

By investing in build, test, deployment and environment automation, we substantially reduce the cost of making and delivering incremental changes to software by eliminating many of the fixed costs associated with the release process.
