The road to continuous deployment: a case study

Interesting but controversial talk. A lot of food for thought.

Great and insightful talk. However, I'm not convinced refactoring the old system was given a serious try, although I of course don't know all the ins and outs. Refactoring 200k - 300k lines isn't impossible, it can be done by the right people using the right approach and techniques with management buy in.

Solid presentation, good flow. Interesting to watch. I would have loved to hear more about the tooling involved and how the problems that came with the tooling choice where solved.

Great talk, want to suggest many topics to our team!

Very insightful! The talk of Michiel also was very closely related to my current employment and application we work on. Based on this talk i'll even invite Michiel to talk or perhaps consult at our office.

Thanks everybody for the comments!

@Youri I'll make sure I'll emphasize that in future iterations of this talk - refactoring the old system was given a serious try (roughly 3-4 months) and did not produce (significant enough) results. Based on that, and a few other factors, the decision was made to strangle & rebuild.

@Stephan the problems mostly centered around the docker engine / client, most of those issues have since been solved (I believe we were dealing with docker 0.5 / 0.6 at that point).

Personally think was the best talks in the conference, from the ones I visited that is. But really wanted to know more of how the new infrastructure looked like. It had so many interesting points but we couldn't hear how they internally managed to do that. The time constrain was a problem to do that, I guess.
