In order to support URA's increasingly dynamic planning workflows, URA's Information Systems and Geospatial Group has to change the way we develop software to enable rapid prototyping, experimentation of new ideas, and quicker updates to our in-house developed Digital Planning Tools. We will share our journey in setting up an Agile DevOps pipeline within the Government intranet environment, including Phabricator for task management using Kanban boards, technical wiki documentation, on-site git repository hosting, Arcanist for code review and linting, and Jenkins for server-based build and deployment. This pipeline has automated our software release process from hours to 1-click.
