(Talk given at London Continuous Delivery meetup group, July 2015)
Continuous Delivery in the cloud can skirt on the edge of chaos. Pete has lived through an organisational and cultural change from a staid slow-paced enterprise-y delivery pattern that managed a few tens of deployments a year, to a fast-paced delivery pattern that manages a few tens of deployments a week and is still accelerating.
The team has scaled from 20 engineers to almost 200, and the platform has scaled from dying at 2 orders/min to laughing at 1200/min. He’ll share some history about experiences that worked (and some that didn’t) from his point of view as an engineer shipping mostly-working code to production and making sure it stayed there.
Peter Mounce (@petemounce) is a senior software developer at Just Eat, the world’s leading online and mobile takeaway ordering service.
“I have worked in developer teams, an operations team, and been a generalist shipping software for JUST EAT since 2010 (with a few years doing that elsewhere first). I’ve lived through cultural and technological change and played a role in effecting it. I had a pivotal role in migrating our platform from a datacentre to the AWS cloud – consequently, we now do tens of deployments a week compared to a tens a year. I’ve automated systems, tests, servers, and in some cases myself. I’ve touched many parts of the platform and delude myself that I do an OK job at that.”
