Derk-Jan de Grood published this month (July 2018), together with Bits&Chips magazine an article about the in-dept conslusions about CI/CD. This article has been based on the outcome of several interactive sessions last year.
Valori organised in 2017 three interactive sessions in which the participants and Derk-Jan de Grood (senior testmanager & Agile Coach) analysed what is needed for a successful implementation of continuous integration and deployment (CI/CD). Two of these sessions were during the Software Centric Systems Conference on 4 October, the other on 11 October during the Autumn Congress of Testnet.
In this search for the preconditions for a successful implementation of CI/CD he gained an interesting snapshot of the state of CI/CD. He concluded that it's more than a technical challenge; there are interfaces with many aspects in system development. Both technical and organisational.
