musings and one liners

Continuous Delivery

Matt Davey pointed me to Continuous Delivery, a book and blog about how to have your code always in good quality, ready to ship, in Continuous Delivery – The Road All Projects Should Travel. Based on my initial reading I couldn’t agree more with his title! Here’s an excerpt:

Getting software released to users is often a painful, risky, and time-consuming process. This groundbreaking new book sets out the principles and technical practices that enable rapid, incremental delivery of high quality, valuable new functionality to users. Through automation of the build, deployment, and testing process, and improved collaboration between developers, testers, and operations, delivery teams can get changes released in a matter of hours — sometimes even minutes–no matter what the size of a project or the complexity of its code base.

This rings so many bells that I just have to read the book. It’s on my wishlist…
