Totaljobs Group’s journey from vbscript hell to continuous deployment nirvana

Having 1 release a week, which involved logging onto servers and manually deploying packages, we knew that there must be a better way. After investigation, and a fair bit of pain, a pipeline from local to live via TeamCity and OctopusDeploy was created to enable us to release at minimum twice a week. This presentation tells of how suffered, and the things we learnt on the way to the promise land of click-button deployment in a multi-server AWS environment.

Dave Marsland has worked in .NET web development for 6 years, with a passion for making sure developers spend their time doing what they do best, which is develop cool and valuable applications. Currently at Totaljobs Group as Development team lead, he is responsible for high level technical strategy and ensuring we use the correct tool for the job.

After the talk, we'll head to the pub for a few drinks and a natter.

    Very good. I've spent some of today setting up an Octopus Deploy server, a couple of tentacles and integrated it with TeamCity/Octopack and deployed my first package. A long way from complete, but a good start.

    Which Pub are you heading to afterwards? A few of us at the ZeroMQ meeting the same evening are .NET developers.

      I would assume The Slaughtered Lamb as it's good weather enough to loiter outside, even under scaffolding.
