Continuous Everything. A heightened awareness of feedback loops in Continuous Delivery.
Continuous Deployment requires Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Delivery (CD) to manage proper releases. Implementing continuous deployment without CI or CD will greatly increase the risk of errors in production code. It’s a no-brainer that production errors can be costly. We’ll look at the cost of errors throughout the delivery process and identify the feedback loops within each practice, necessary to handle errors as early and as close to the code as possible to avoid costly production errors. Having a heightened awareness of the feedback loops within each of these practices will get you in-tune with your delivery practice while mitigating risk and keeping you sane.
