    Great start. It looks like you have tapped into a pain point for many software teams. It's a bit daunting to discover how much MORE stuff I don't know about - but that's typical for our field. This will be quite a journey, with questions cropping up in each of the phases CI/CV/CD and not necessarily chronologically.

    Here's a starter: how do you version internal component library binaries following semantic versioning in a CI system? How does the build framework know to increment the major or minor or patch number without human input? (As library components, they have good unit test coverage, and are not directly testable by QA. So if they pass unit testing, they can be published.)

    Hey guys, that was a great introduction event tonight. I think there is heaps we can learn from each other.

    I personally would love to have some more "breakout sessions" with more specific technical topics (e.g. infrastructure provisioning, database migrations, UI tests etc.), and a "show and tell" would be nice (e.g. every meeting someone could present their current CI/CD infrastructure from a technological and process point of view).

    Big thank you to everyone who attended the event tonight.

    Great to have such great support for the first session. A big thank you to Gareth Evans for the presentation and to Assurity for sponsoring this inaugural event.

    Looking forward to Julian Simpson sharing his infrastructure experience next month.
