Session 102: Lessons Learned in Automating Releases

Speaker: Anne Ruskamp – Beehive Industries

Time: Thursday Sept 4 11:15am

Session Overview:

One of the necessary elements of software development is determining how to get new bits out the door with the least amount of pain and greatest amount of confidence possible. This session will discuss some of the tools and processes we have consumed or created to go from releases literally being an all-night affair to update a single customer, to upgrading a growing list of customers with a few clicks while reducing the number of show-stopping bugs reaching them. This will include considerations and lessons learned from doing all this with several different front-end clients, multiple versions of business-logic, and database schemas simultaneously flying around.
