It is an exciting time to be in the CI/CD industry. We are delivering more software than ever before and at a rate and scale that we might not have imagined years ago. 15 years ago continuous integration and continuous delivery were not common practices but today they are the key differentiators for every industry, whether you are a releasing a new banking app or a new contact tracing app. Delivering software securely and speed matters to every aspect of modern life.
We have huge opportunities to innovate and advance continuous delivery adoption. Yet there are some challenges which make this difficult to do so. Being a relatively new industry, we often talk at cross purposes about terms and phrases – the same words mean vastly different things to different teams. The landscape is confusing, often impenetrable to newcomers and changing habits to adopt emerging practices sometimes feels overwhelming to teams.
In this talk, we will look at the origins of continuous delivery, how it has evolved to present day and where it is going. We will also talk about the role open source communities will play to make continuous delivery simpler yet more innovative, widespread yet inclusive and faster yet still secure.
