InfoQ eMag: Continuous Delivery Stories


Continuous Delivery encompasses a set of strong practices to be successful and bring value to the organization implementing it, be it through reduced cycle time, more robust products, more visibility on current status, etc. But since continuous delivery can and should affect practices across the entire software lifecycle that means collaboration between different teams (Dev, QA, Ops, etc) is mandatory.

In short: reaping the benefits of continuous delivery is hard work! Culture, processes or technical barriers can challenge or even break such endeavors.

With this eMag we wanted to share stories from leading practitioners who’ve been there and report from the trenches. Their examples are both inspiring and eye opening to the challenges ahead.
