"Continuous Delivery isn't Finished" by Miel Donkers & Hylke Stapersma

Continuous Delivery is focussing mostly on deploying services (software) to production, so that they can be used by the customer. But we think that's not where the role of Continuous Delivery ends. Keeping these services running in production is just as important. Therefore making sure that monitoring is in place and the possibility to take evasive measures belongs to the process of continuous delivery.
We would like to discuss what we think is necessary to take the next steps, and show some examples on how this can be arranged.

Bio Miel Donkers
Miel Donkers is a software craftsman at codecentric Netherlands. He's an experienced web- and Java developer, who's also interested in ways for bringing software into production as fast and as reliable as possible. This not only includes the deployment process, but also monitoring, problem mitigation and simply building 'the right thing'.

"Acceptance Testing for Continuous Delivery" by Dave Farley

Writing and maintaining a suite acceptance tests that can give you a high level of confidence in the behaviour and configuration of your system is a complex task. In this talk Dave will describe approaches to acceptance testing that allow teams to: work quickly and effectively; build excellent functional coverage for complex enterprise-scale systems; manage and maintain those tests in the face of change, and of evolution in both the codebase and the understanding of the business problem.

This talk will answer the following questions, and more: How do you fail fast? How do you make your testing scalable? How do you isolate test cases from one-another? How do you maintain a working body of tests when you radically change the interface to your system?

Dave Farley is co-author of the Jolt-award winning book "Continuous Delivery", a regular conference speaker and blogger, one of the authors of the Reactive Manifesto and former Head of Software development at LMAX Ltd, a company that are well known for the excellence of their code and the exemplary nature of their development process. Dave is an independent software developer and consultant, and founder and director of Continuous Delivery Ltd.
