The Great Debate: The Pros and Cons of Continuous Delivery

Add to calendar

The Great Continuous Delivery Debate There is a lot of debate about whether continuous delivery is a boon or a curse. Proponents will sing the praises of being able to deliver software into production very frequently with no manual intervention. Skeptics will highlight the challenges delivering quality, working with legacy code, and the need for intensive system-wide assurance activities prior to deploying into production. So which is it? Can most organizations benefit from continuous delivery and, if so, how? Or is continuous delivery a pipedream and only reachable by the select few. These issues (and more) will be debated in this session. Join a star studded group of Agile and DevOps expertise as they duke it out discussing the merits and challenges adopting continuous delivery. Take home a better understanding of the pros and cons of continuous delivery. Learn more about the benefits and risks and whether CD is right for you. Expect some fireworks and fisticuffs so bring your popcorn!
