Continously delivering


Comments are closed.

Nice talk, presentation style was quite pleasant. Got some nice info from this talk. Quite interesting to see how qandidate/toggle works, I had not worked with that one yet. Despite all the tools, I'm afraid the initial setup of the process is hard, but there's so many tools now that make things easier, and you definitely was able to show the moving parts and the tools. Thanks.

thanks for giving the talk... i found the second half to be more interesting and relevant to me.

Good talk, a lot of confirmations about how to handle CI/CD

Quiet speaker. Some interesting information but would have liked more detail (more specific examples with gotchas).

Was an interesting talk I would have preferred a little less theory and more code or examples to help drive the point home.

Good talk that covered a lot of ground in an area Hames is very knowledgable in

Had some slide tech issues and handled them well, but please speak louder or stand closer to the Mic :-)

Great CI/CD introduction, speaking from lots of experience and with lots of knowledge. Explained the benefits and pitfalls of various different approaches.
I would suggest explaining acronyms at least once, even if some of them seem obvious, e.g. QA, UAT...

Useful information on feature switches and delivery was nice.

Was a good coverage, but perhaps more time spent on feature toggles than was necessary, and covered more of the principles than actually using it in a day to day scenario. Good though, just perhaps not the right title. Thanks

Good talk about stepping from CI to CD, although I think too much emphasis was put on feature toggles, and not enough on practical examples of adding the final step

Interesting look at the benefits and some of the technical aspects of continuous deployment & feature toggles. Lots to think about, but I'll be researching further into the feature toggle packages mentioned!

Good to hear people are making CI and CD work and there's solutions to a lot of the issues I've had.

The topic is good and the content was good, refreshing to see a large focus on customer value as a driver
for improving the technical pipeline.
But the delivery was a little dry. Taking a static position behind the desk contributed a lot to that I
think, I would suggest moving around a little as a tip to James. I'm sure this talk will be a lot better
with just a few minor tweaks!

Really useful hearing the experiences James has been through with continuous delivery and deployment with analysis of areas that could be improved and how it was done. Concepts and examples were really clear.

Hadn't really touched on Feature Toggles before so I found the detail on them particularly helpful and the further reading recommendations were a bonus.

Talk was delivered confidently and flowed really well. Thanks!

Being someone who is just getting into CI/CD, this talk was great. It was well delivered and the questions were answered confidently along with knowledge and experience.

I had 3 questions written down in my notebook and throughout the talk, each was answered.

James is clearly interested and passionate about this topic, and his experiences and frustrations are shared with many in this field, thought the talk was good as it broke down the understanding of each sub topic and his quest for better feedback and how to handle new features whilst preventing feature rot. Good talk all round and well presented

really good talk, branch rot is something I have been guilty of recently and topics in this talk have made me tweak some of my practices.
