Session One: Smoothing the Continuous Delivery Path - practices for improving your team's delivery

Lyndsay Prewer, Delivery Manager, Equal Experts

Continuous delivery is gaining recognition as a best practice. It is now in use by many leading organisations, including Netflix, Amazon, and Etsy. Yet despite offering a proven way of reducing risk, reducing time to market, and increasing a team’s agility, adopting and improving continuous delivery is challenging.

Lyndsay Prewer offers an experience report of practices used by two very different teams to improve their continuous delivery. Both teams were sizeable (more than five features teams) and mature in their use of Agile and Lean practices. One team chose Scala, MongoDB, Docker, and microservices on a greenfield project. The other faced the constraints of legacy code, .Net, MySQL, Windows, and a monolithic architecture.

Lyndsay shares the practices and pain points encountered by the two teams, looking at those common to both and those that were specific to each team’s own context.

Session Two: Fishbowl Discussion

“What makes Continuous Delivery hard for your team?” - A fishbowl discussion on Continuous Delivery pain points run by Andy Goundry, Engagement Manager, Equal Experts.

Food and drinks will be provided.

We look forward to seeing you there!
