Real world deployments - Empowering developers, delivering features

Real world deployments - Enabling engineers to ship code to users quickly and safely is an incredibly empowering and motivating thing, encouraging quick iteration, collaboration, and solving real world problems for users. At busuu we've worked hard to get our deployment and automation tooling to a place where any engineer can deploy any branch to any environment quickly and safely, and roll back if there are any issues. I'll talk through why we focus on this, how it has impacted on our team, and some real world examples of how we've implemented deployments in our team.

Speaker: Rob Elkin

Rob is the CTO of busuu (, the worlds largest social network for language learning, where he leads teams to bring language learning to the world. As well as helping everyone to learn a new language, he is also a founder of AltConf (, the Apple Developer community’s biggest independent conference.



We'll also have 2 licences from JetBrains (JetBrains ( for any of their products to raffle.
