Continuous delivery and continuous integration are far more than simply buzzwords or emerging trends. Automation is advancing inexorably, especially on the DevOps scene. But how will CI/CD develop in the coming year? And why is delivering software continuously so important? For our big Continuous Delivery Expert Check 2020, we asked seven respected experts in the field about these and other topics. In the first part of our expert check, see what best practices can help ensure security and what type of deployment our experts prefer – blue/green deployment or rolling deployment?
Organizations still face challenges and toil getting software across the finish line to production. Investments in Continuous Delivery aim to bring more consistent and safer approaches to getting features into production.
What is DevOps? This question has no clear answer, because the truth lies somewhere between corporate culture, tooling, methodology and different approaches to working. Nevertheless, there are of course factors that give an indication of the extent to which DevOps has arrived in a company or a team. With our large DevOps survey we want to find out how your company is doing with the implementation of DevOps.
Our new webinar series Devs@Home brings IT experts into your (home) office. In today’s webinar, L Körbes will show us how to speed up deployment time with the aim of getting the process so slick that it takes just 1 second! Even if 1 second seems like a pipe dream, L is sure to have some suggestions that could help you accelerate your “from code change to process running” benchmark faster.
Building a stronger CI/CD pipeline isn’t easy. It requires plenty of time, tools, and the contributions of many. However, when done correctly, it has potential returns that will are worth the time involved. Benefits including automated code testing, faster software iterations, satisfied customers, a competitive edge, and more productive teams, just to name a few.
Continuous delivery platform provider CircleCI recently opened a new office in London. We took the opportunity to talk to CEO Jim Rose about the new office, as well as learning more about what CircleCI do, how their business has changed over the years and what customers in different parts of the world are looking for. We also talked about some innovations and what comes next for the platform.
Content management systems are suffering from stagnant, legacy systems that were not built with a modern, agile, API-driven approach. To keep up with the competitive demand for digital products, more and more organizations are adopting a continuous development and delivery model and cuts down on development time and long dev cycles.
When your DevOps setup has become a great success, you might start to notice that the silos you thought you’d broken down are starting to reappear simply because of how difficult it is to keep everyone heading for the same goal when the terrain is constantly changing. Software delivery management is the way to get to grips with this. We spoke to Sacha Labourey about this and much more.
Today we pay close attention to scaling our systems, testing for chaos, and reducing MTTR (mean time to repair) in production. Yet our continuous delivery pipelines don’t get nearly as much love. This talk presents tried and tested patterns for increasing accelerating delivery of changes in a safe manner.

The architecture of continuous delivery pipelines is becoming more complicated and complex every day. The purpose of Ambreen Sheikh’s talk is to motivate teams to take a moment and reflect on their Continuous Delivery pipeline architecture for the sole purpose of improvement and encourage them to KISS “Keep it simple, (maybe not stupid)” their continuous delivery architecture all the way.
Are you trying to integrate a CI/CD pipeline into your microservices project? Here are five useful tips from JAX DevOps speaker Nir Koren. Protip: your pipelines will be more robust than ever as long as you can unify and control CI/CD processes.
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?
Jenkins may seem all-purpose, but it’s really not. Just because you think you can use Jenkins Pipelines for continuous delivery doesn’t mean you should. Steve Burton explains why Jenkins Pipelines can be surprisingly brittle and how developers can get around this hurdle.
