People ask me examples related to Continuous Deployment and DevOps.
There are lots, but I would like to share one from July/2012.
The best thing about these disciplines (continuous delivery and deployment) is the continuous improvement flow you create in operations. And that will lead to a large number of improvements all around the organization.
It’s about setting a big goal with your team (realistic and specific) and look for best ways to deliver value to customers.
But not only that. We start to see some questions with a different view:
- Why would a team need to wait for 3am to deploy a new version?
- Why developers and operations team can’t have a good night of sleep?
- Why people need to work for long hours during weeks and weekends, to deliver a new release after six months of uncertainty?
- Why can’t we find a pace that can be really sustainable and provide life quality to team members?
If your team is searching for continuous delivery and deployment, there are some results expected:
- + quality
- + automation (tests, operations)
- + productivity
- + communication with customers
How is your team going with continuous delivery / deployment practices?
