First up is the Devopsguys who with a little commentary reposted this infographic from Zend Technologies. It demonstrates the real value in DevOps and continuous delivery. One thing that jumped out at me was that according to the data, ninety- nine percent of the Companies surveyed are now recognizing a greater need for DevOps strategies than before. Zend built the graphic utilizing data from various credible industry sources.
Of course you can’t talk about Continuous Delivery without at least mentioning Jez Humble, after all he literally wrote the book on it. He recently posted on his blog four visualizations by Nhan Ngo, a QA Engineer at Spotify. The four visualizations were created while reading Jez’ book, Continuous Delivery. Some pretty intense stuff. Nhan Ngo made it look almost simple, almost like like a comic strip, but there is nothing funny about it.
If you really want to get into the trenches, here is an interesting video that I found called Continuous Delivery and Zero Downtime from the site Night Hacking. The scenario is your “Continuous Integration system is well oiled and kicks in after every commit. Your code is compiled. Your tests are green. You feel ready to take your project to the next level and move to Continuous Delivery.”
We aren’t done with our look at DevOps and Continuous Delivery just yet, DevOps Reactions probably illustrates best how Continuous Delivery works. It works in the model, but in the real world it requires real skill.
