Talk: Taming a beast - Adopting Continuous Delivery in a large, legacy monolith Deploying your application whenever you want is easy. Everyone does it nowadays. And that works great when you have a small group of people responsible for an application. But what if you have several teams working on the same application? What if you have almost 80 people committing more than 30 times a day? Can you face the challenge of deploying that application as often as you wish and succeed in keeping it stable? In this talk we will walk the journey from a conservative four week release cycle to full autonomy. What are the challenges you will face and how to tackled them.
