How to make Agile teams be always ready for release on production
One of the Agile principles states “Deliver working software frequently, from a couple of weeks to a couple of months, with a preference to the shorter timescale.”. It was 2001 when the Agile Manifesto was written. Nowadays, teams have to deliver often working software to the end user several times within one iteration.
In today's dynamic world, we must work in a way that allows us to reach the end user at any time. This is why the Continuous Delivery process in software development is a must condition and a DevOps engineer has a mandatory role in a team. Many teams still do not understand the steps they need to go through and do not realize the huge benefits they would have if they invested in building a Continuous Delivery Pipeline. There is a constant discussion about short sprints, frequent customer reviews, feedback, etc. And while Scrum gives us a lot of process management practices, it doesn’t tell us anything about how to have a "potential releasable product" at the end of each sprint.
About the topic
Keeping the code on a continuous "Release on production" readiness is becoming a must for Agile teams in today’s dynamic and competitive market. Agile teams need to work in a way that allows them to constantly build, test and deliver software to the end user. This requires building the right infrastructure that automates this process.
Continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) practices enable developers to reliably produce applications at a faster rate—and enhance team collaboration in the process. By continuously building, testing, and delivering their code, Agile teams can reap benefits such as huge stability, speed, and flexibility.
We have invited HeleCloud™ to share with us the steps a software teams must go through to achieve continuous flow of releasing their work on production. What are the steps? What are the benefits? Which part of the process is automated? What is the role of a DevOps engineer? These are some of the questions we will answer.
We will discuss:
- What is Continuous Delivery?
- What are the steps for building a Continuous Delivery Pipeline? How long and what resources will be needed?
- What are the benefits of having a Continuous Delivery Pipeline?
