Join ThoughtWorks, renowned as one of the pioneers and leaders in the evolution and practice of Agile Software Development, as we present our Continuous Delivery workshop. 

Who should attend?

Those who want to close the gap between Development (Applications/Software Engineering teams), Technology Operations (Release Managers), and Quality Assurance (Testing and QA Managers).

Learning Outcomes:

    • The importance of fast feedback on the production readiness of your application  throughout the delivery process, and how to get it done right
    • How to improve collaboration between people involved in delivering software (developers, testers, and operations personnel)
    • Principles and practices that enable continuous deployment, including data management
    • How to automate testing and deployment
    • How to evolve your application without using version control branches
    • How to manage continuous delivery with large and distributed teams
    • How to transform your organization's delivery process to enable continuous delivery

Refreshments, coffee and lunch will be served during breaks.
