Always Be Releasing! A Journey Towards Continuous Deployment of Microservices

Lead Software Engineer, Momondo

With products that reach millions of users, the goal at Momondo is to get things done and released faster without breaking things. Moving from weekly or monthly releases to Continuous Deployment of software is challenging for any company - over the last year we took this challenge at Momondo. This talk will cover examples of why we decided to invest in adopting Continuous Deployment, and learnings from our journey that is still ongoing! These learnings are things you should consider in your adoption of Continuous Delivery or Deployment.

Stop Breaking Things - Continuous Delivery at GitHub

Software Engineer, GitHub

You’ve probably heard the famous quote: “move fast and break things”. Of course we all want to move fast, but our customers expect reliable and working services. Can you move quickly, deliver continuously, but not break things? Learn about the tools and processes that GitHub uses to deploy continuously, while breaking as few things as possible, and how we detect and fix the problems that arise.

Elephant jiu jitsu - Throwing big things gracefully through the air

Director of project delivery, e2y

How deploying a relatively large and heavily integrated application in an elegant an speedy agile fashion turned out to not be quite as easy as it seemed. Following agile and Continuous Delivery principles when working with SAP hybris is a bit like practicing jiu jitsu with an elephant - the elephant has quite an impact on the end result. But it’s not impossible…

Test automation is dead. Long live test automation!

Consultant & Coach, Claysnow

For Continuous Delivery to work well we need more test automation (or to be precise, we need to do less manual testing) but each initiative seems to deliver another pile of incomprehensible, brittle, unmaintainable scripts that suck resources and deliver questionable returns. The more we chase test automation, the further away it seems to get. Meanwhile, a growing band of organizations have found that wielding the power of examples in workshops (where the business, the developers and the testers collaborate) is helping promote early discovery of assumptions, risks and missing requirements. What’s more, these examples are powering the creation of a ubiquitous language, helping prevent future misunderstandings. And, if that isn’t enough already, these examples can then be automated, using tools like Cucumber, to become an executable specification. In this session, Seb asks: is this the test automation you were looking for?

Coding Culture

Software geek working as an Evangelist, Atlassian.

Imagine a culture where the input of the whole organization turns an individual idea into a user story in just a couple of hours, where everybody’s goal is to make the customers job easier and more effective, and where you work on projects you love instead of projects you loathe. A great coding culture concentrates on making developers productive and happy by removing unnecessary overhead, bringing autonomous teams together, helping the individual programmer to innovate, and raising awareness among developers about how to create better code. I will talk about how to establish and foster a strong engineering-focused culture that scales from a small team to a huge organization with hundreds of developers. I’ll give lots of examples from our experience at Atlassian to show that once you’re working in a great coding culture, you won’t want to work anywhere else.

Screwing Up For Less

Director of Engineering, Rocket Internet

Traditionally, a lot of emphasis on building a quality product is focussed on prevention of bad things happening. Some of the mechanisms to create such positive outcomes aren’t always easily compatible with continuous deployment. This talk will cover alternative methods for ensuring quality.

Service Management as an Aspect of DevOps

Global Solutions Executive, OCTO, CSC.

CIOs and those charged with running IT Operations are challenged to deliver secure, audited, and reliable compute environments for the applications and data for the business. Behind the scenes these tasks are often accomplished by following onerous time-consuming processes and often the management of these environments and processes will be outsourced to multiple IT service providers. In addition, the division of work is often siloed into traditional “towers” that are not well integrated for cross-functional purposes. So, when traditional IT Service Management (ITSM) meets the cloud, and equally, DevOps, the is invariably going to be conflict. IT/ESM needs a reboot. As a factor of IT Transformation and Digital Transformation, IT no longer stands alone—or at least in a modern workplace it should not stand alone—it is the hub through which all other business services will see their efforts delivered. Marketing requires large-scale data analytics and webscale support for customer and partner access. Finance needs 360 degree views of how money is flowing through the business inclusive of unintended consequential impacts. The next incarnation of ESM is DevOps. It is all about leveraging a common set of tools and practices to deliver continuous delivery focused on operations management. This includes all aspects of managing, communications, automation, reporting, and monitoring. It’s all about operating IT in an era where everything is software and programmable. This session will explore the impact of the API economy, Service Integration & Management, and a growing software-defined infrastructure on the next generation of IT operations and how to prepare for the forthcoming changes.

Libo Francesco Cannici

First dates can be challenging!

Engineering Manager, Zendesk

Introducing continuous delivery in an existing organisation might not be easy. The more we have the process is cemented around a weekly release the more friction we might find. Libo will talk about the journey he and his team took to establish and agree a workflow in a global organisation and how they all stopped worrying and fell in love with the delivery bomb. He’ll touch on automated testing, code review and deployment rituals, deployment tools, performance monitoring and rollback emergency “gybe” manoeuvre.
