Deployments are hard: nothing runs the same in production as it does on your local machine, and orchestrating the right changes at the right time, in a repeatable and reliable way, can be really tricky, and make you fear deployment time. Octopus Deploy is a deployment automation tool that helps to ease this pain, and give you confidence that your deployments will work consistently on every release. In this talk we'll have a look at the anatomy of a deployment, and some key Octopus features to help you eliminate your deployment pains for good.

In a past life I ran my own company doing IT support and custom web-app development around Adelaide, and developing a data-analysis tool for SA primary schools. In 2017 I switched gears, and now work as an engineer at Octopus Deploy, on the team building Octopus Cloud. I spend my days working from home, stoking the fire, and building the perfect smart-home so I never have to get out of my chair ever again.
