Sean Reilly: Opslogger: operations code should be production quality too!

"Most experienced agile developers have a pretty good idea of what quality production code looks like these days. And we also know that operations code is an important part of quality and stability in production. And yet why is it that our operations code isn't built to the same standard of quality that the rest of our code is?
This talk is about how it deserves to be, why I'm unsatisfied with how standard logging libraries approach this problem, and a potential alternative that I think is better."

Chris O'Dell and Matthew Skelton: Continuous Delivery - making it work with Windows and .NET

The technologies and approaches for Continuous Delivery are essentially identical across different operating systems, but some things need special treatment for Windows and .NET. When Jez Humble and Dave Farley published their groundbreaking book 'Continuous Delivery' in 2010, many of the tools described were either nonexistent on the Windows platform or did not support the rich automation capabilities they do now.

This talk aims to encourage many more teams working with Windows and .NET to adopt Continuous Delivery by sharing real-world success stories of organisations using Windows and .NET for Continuous Delivery; the speakers share their first-hand experience in different organisations and also explore some case studies from the new O'Reilly eBook 'Continuous Delivery with Windows and .NET (http://cdwithwindows.net/)'.
