Continuous Delivery shows how tocreate fully automated, repeatable, and reliable processes for rapidly moving changes through build, deploy, test, and release. Using these techniques, software organizations are getting critical fixes and other new releases into production in hours ? sometimes evenminutes ? evenin large projects with complex code bases.
Jez Humble and David Farley begin by presenting the high-level principles and practices required to succeed with regular, repeatable, low-risk releases. Next, they introduce the ?deployment pipeline,? an automated process for managing all changes, from check-in to release. Finally, they discuss the ?ecosystem? needed to support deployment pipelines, from infrastructure to data management and governance.
The authors introduce many state-of-the-art techniques, including in-production monitoring and tracing, dependency management, and the use of virtualization. For each, they review key issues, demonstrate how to mitigate risks, and identify best practices. Coverage includes
· Overcoming ?anti-patterns? that slow down releases and reduce quality
· Automating all facets of configuration management and testing
· Implementing deployment pipelines at team and organizational levels
· Scripting highly-effective automated build and deployment processes
· Triggering automated processes whenever a change is made
· Automating acceptance testing, from analysis to implementation
· Testing capacity and other non-functional requirements
· Utilizing continuous deployment, rollbacks, and zero-downtime releases
· Managing infrastructure, data, components, dependencies, and versions
· Navigating risk management, compliance, and other obstacles
Whether you?re a developer, architect, tester, or manager, this book will help you move from idea to release faster than ever ? so you can deliver far more value, far more rapidly.
