(Talk given at London Continuous Delivery meetup group, February 2017 – Evolving Continuous Delivery)

“This is a story of guiding a team’s CD adoption and maturity, from a chaotic start, to being awesome.

I’ll share my experience of guiding a team to achieve a higher degree of delivery maturity. This is a journey from a troublesome, struggling start of chaotic manual deployments, merge hell, regular production roll backs and lost code, to deliver a single commit to master automatically and reliably, under an hour, many times a day.

We’ll look at a few simple practices that worked, to introduce CD practices such as monitoring, build automation and test automation gradually, instead of going all in at first.

You’ll start to see that it isn’t daunting at all, and start delivering with joy. ”
