“The road to Continuous Delivery is paved with frustrations of trying to get people to understand it”
Is Continuous Delivery *just* a technical transition? How should companies change in order to successfully implement Continuous Delivery? JAXenter editor Gabriela Motroc caught up with Daniel Jones, CTO and co-founder of EngineerBetter to talk about why Continuous Delivery is better for your brain and what’s the role of technical debt in all this.
“The mindset is very important when you want to implement a Continuous Delivery practice”
Are we failing to exploit the benefits of modern technology by running our software businesses and teams as if they’re post-war factories, rather than continuously delivering? We caught up with Daniel Jones, CTO and co-founder of EngineerBetter at JAX 2018 to talk about Continuous Delivery, technical debt and how to enhance productivity.
Here are some quotes from the interview:
- Technical debt is necessary but it also needs to be managed.
- There’s nothing wrong with a simple solution.
- The mindset is very important when you want to implement a Continuous Delivery practice.
- Continuous Delivery is not a silver bullet; it is what is required for fast feedback loops.
- The road to Continuous Delivery is paved with frustrations of trying to get people to understand it (which is why it’s important that the mindset changes).
