Throughout June and July Expert Talks Online is running a series of talks focusing on Continuous Delivery. We started the series with Mr. Continuous Delivery himself, Dave Farley.
We are thrilled to have Dave kicking us off as we have worked with Dave on previous engagements and he has been a friend of Equal Experts for some time now.
On 3rd June, Dave spoke about The Rationale for Continuous Delivery and how it changes the economics of software development for large organisations. You can watch the video on our YouTube channel.
This Wednesday Lyndsay Prewer gave some practical tips that teams can adopt to enable continuous delivery in his talk on Smoothing the Continuous Delivery path. The video from this talk is also available on our YouTube channel.
For the rest of the series, we have a collection of fantastic talks lined up:
- 17th June – Steve Smith will cover Measuring Continuous Delivery.
- 24th June – Ben Conrad from HMRC will join us to talk about How the MDTP has supported HMRC’s successful launch of Covid-19 services.
- 1st July – Stuart Gunter (our security practice lead) will talk about Secure Continuous Delivery.
- 8th July – Lisa Crispin talks about A Whole Team Approach to Quality in Continuous Delivery.
Enabling Continuous Delivery for our customers remains a key goal that we constantly strive to achieve.
Releasing working software early and often is at the heart of our offering. I’m thrilled that we not only have experts from our network sharing their knowledge on this topic, but that some of our customers are able to demonstrate the success they are having with this approach.
We are delighted to announce that Dave Farley will be presenting our next ExpertTalks Online webinar on Wednesday, 3rd June, at 6pm BST and again on Wednesday, 10th June, at 8.30am BST (1.00pm IST, 5.30 pm AEST).
Dave has been a friend of EE for a long time. We have been fortunate enough to work alongside Dave with some of our customers in the past and many of our consultants have worked with him throughout their careers.
Continuous delivery is an approach that we try to move our customers towards. For most of our customers we focus on gradually improving their ability to release more frequently, so they can create more value for their business on a regular basis. With some customers we have been able to embed the ability to deliver live changes multiple times a day across tens of delivery teams.
The benefits that can be realised by embedding continuous delivery at scale have been demonstrated very publicly with HMRC’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic. They have been able to deploy new services for the British public in a matter of weeks that are reliable, secure and scalable.
At Equal Experts, we put a lot of focus on delivering software to production. Getting working software in the hands of users, whether your colleagues or your customers, is one of the best ways to realise the value of your investment and ensure you are building the right thing. This is why Dave Hewitt used frequency of releases to production as the primary measure for the world’s simplest agile maturity model.
Dave Farley is one of the world’s most recognised experts in continuous delivery. Join us on Wednesday 3rd June, 6pm BST at ExpertTalks Online or on Wednesday 10th June 8.30am BST (1.00 IST; 5.30 pm AEST) to hear Dave present The Rationale for Continuous Delivery.
Continuous Delivery changes the economics of software development for some of the biggest companies in the world. Join the webinars to find out how and why.
