Overview

Getting software released to users is often a painful, risky, and time-consuming process. The practice of continuous delivery sets out the principles and technical practices that enable rapid, low-risk 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 IT operations, teams can get changes released in a matter of hours–sometimes even minutes–no matter what the size of the product or the complexity of the enterprise environment.

Description

In Continuous Delivery LiveLessons, Jez Humble presents an in-depth guide to the principles and practices behind continuous delivery and the DevOps movement, along with case studies from real companies and ideas to help you adopt continuous delivery and DevOps within your organization. You’ll start by learning the value proposition and the foundations that enable continuous delivery, followed by an introduction to the pattern at the heart of continuous delivery—the deployment pipeline. The training then dives into the key development practices of continuous integration and comprehensive test automation. These lessons cover change management, agile infrastructure management, managing databases, architecture, and the patterns that enable low-risk releases. They conclude by discussing the culture and organizational change patterns of high performing companies. After taking this training, you will understand not just the principles and practices that enable continuous delivery and devops, but also how they are implemented in high performing organizations. With this knowledge you’ll be ready to transform your organization’s software delivery capability to get high quality solutions to market fast, while reducing the risk of the release process.

It looks at the principles of continuous delivery and its value proposition, followed by a presentation of the core practices that make it work. It then moves on to examine the deployment pipeline, the pattern at the core of continuous delivery, and then presents a case study.

Lesson 2: Automated Acceptance Testing

This lesson dives deep into automated acceptance testing, beginning with a review of the landscape of test automation and proceeding into a discussion of architecture and process that enable effective automated acceptance testing. It then shows how to interact with the system under test and discusses how to curate suites of tests to ensure they are maintainable. Next, it shows how to deal with test failures and how to manage test data. Finally, it summarizes the key principles behind creating maintainable suites of automated acceptance tests.

Lesson 3: Continuous Integration and Feature Branching

This lesson covers continuous integration and feature branching, beginning with an overview of the two practices followed by a discussion of the various trade-offs between the techniques.

Lesson 4: Going Live

This lesson discusses how to release software into production, beginning with a presentation of the expand/contract pattern for immutable deployments. It then follows with a discussion of how to reduce the risk of deployments by decoupling them from releases.

Lesson 5: Managing Data

This lesson covers how to manage evolutionary database change, including continuous integration with databases.

Lesson 6: Devops and Infrastructure as Code

This lesson journeys into the heart of Devops, including a discussion of the key concepts followed by an examination of the core idea of infrastructure-as-code.

Lesson 7: Architecting for Continuous Delivery

This lesson covers how to architect for continuous delivery, beginning with a discussion of componentized and service-oriented architectures. It then shows how to evolve your architecture in order to support continuous delivery.

Lesson 8: Adopting Continuous Delivery

This final lesson is devoted to adopting continuous delivery, beginning with a presentation on the characteristics of high performing organizations and concluding with a discussion on deploying continuous delivery.
