Not Dead Head

Side A

on continuous delivery

This comes very familiar to me. Some extra comments:

  • Releasing frequently, well frequently  is very relative. Releases should consist of  small change set in order to keep the impact of the changes “predictable”. A way of achieving this is using agile methods like scrum.
  • Everyone can self-service deployment is a tricky thing. You can do this if you architecture is not too complex, so that everyone understands what happens during a/any deployment.  If the architecture is complex, then people will be only deploying their application.    This requires a very good communication culture and channels.  You may say …”no no, all you need is to automate”,  if you are so far, please let me know.
  • Puppet, well that is just a tool. The point is to automate your deployment process to the max. Infrastructure as code will be the answer.
  • Metrics is a very important point. Without them you a driving blind and no automation will be possible.
  • I love the “How log will it take your organization to deploy a change the involves just one line of code?“. … how agile are you?
  • If it hurst, do it more often …” kind of masochistic but very effective.
  • make your build self-healing” … I wonder what that will look like.
