Continuous Delivery

He showed me around his project and one of the interesting aspects of his highly disciplined team was the fact that they deployed their software into production every night. That said, it won’t hurt to skim some of the earlier chapters to get a rough jrz of some of the principles to supplement the introductory articles on the net.

I feel thoroughly updated. Book ratings by Goodreads.

Interesting to see the book hasn’t lost any relevance despite being written in This book is highly relevant for anyone involved in the field of technology: 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.

In Continuous Delivery LiveLessonsJez 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. Refactoring to Patterns Joshua Kerievsky. The maximum throughput a system can sustain, for a given workload, while maintaining an acceptable response time for each individual request, is its capacity.

We achieve all this by ensuring our code is always in a deployable state, even in the face of teams of thousands of developers making changes on a daily basis.


It’s nice to have all good concepts under one cover, but reading a pages long book that will tell you the history of GIT and SVN is pointless This book is considered a cornerstone of the DevOps movement.

Knuth’s Art of Computer Programming or Brooks’ Mythical Man Month and find continnuous readers regularly pulling them off their shelves.

Continuous Delivery

Return to Book Page. Finally, it summarizes the key principles behind creating maintainable suites of automated acceptance tests. He has worked as a software developer, product manager, executive, consultant and trainer across a wide variety of domains and technologies. The practices at the heart of continuous delivery help us achieve several important benefits: Increase the quality and stability of the software you delivery, while continnuous cost of ongoing software development.

But the delkvery are there. In a textbook that attempts to teach, humnle the other hand, I think the reader needs all the help s he can get to get through dry material. It is often assumed that if we want to deploy software more frequently, we must accept lower levels of stability and reliability in our systems.

Estimating, planning, working together, following good engineering practices – these are tough adjustments for completely chaotic teams.

It talks about principles and practices that can help you shorten the cycle of putting code from development into …more This book is language independent. By removing the low-value painful activities associated with software delivery, we can focus on what we care about most—continuously delighting our users. Over that period he has worked on most types of software, from firmware, through tinkering with operating systems and device drivers, to writing games, and commercial applications of all shapes and sizes.

Initially, the concepts made sense but I found it hard to apply them without project experience.

If you are in big software teams, you most probably do most of the guidelines in the book, but still, the book provides a good perspective of the issues and possibly a complete checklist when you face the situation!


By applying patterns such as blue-green deployments it is relatively straightforward to achieve zero-downtime deployments that are undetectable to users.

It’s truly the intersection of development and operations on many levels, and these guys nailed it. Most of the ideas presented in the book could be continous in one long yet succinct blog post.

It’s a great book to take a perfect grasp of software release strategies. For your team’s sake, I hope you agree. In the last decade I’ve worked at ThoughtWorks and a common theme of our projects has been reducing that cycle time between idea and usable software.

This book is a necessity for any software engineer’s library.

Continuous Delivery : Reliable Software Releases through Build, Test, and Deployment Automation

Jul 05, Ilyes Hachani rated it it was amazing Shelves: Continuous Delivery is a book that every agile team who wants to advance together should read. A component-based software system is distinguished by the fact that the codebase is divided into discrete pieces that provide behavior through well-defined, limited interactions with other components.

There’s much wisdom in this book, but it’s buried in boring writing. Overall it’s a good reference for the individual aspects that create a continuous delivery system; however, I wouldn’t recommend reading it from cover to cover.

Architecting for Continuous Delivery Topics I liked the analyses of common issues that I experience in my job, and sometimes I was happy to read the reasoning I couldn’t grasp myself.
