The foundations of Continuous Delivery

This week we’re sharing one of the most popular episodes from our new podcast Ship It. Ship It launched in May and now has 8 episodes in the feed to enjoy…it’s hosted by Gerhard Lazu, our SRE here at Changelog.

In this episode, Gerhard talks with Dave Farley, co-author of Continuous Delivery and the inventor of the Deployment Pipeline. Today, most of us ship code the way we do because 25 years ago, Dave cared enough to drive the change that we now call CI/CD. He is one of the great software engineers: opinionated, perseverant & focused since the heydays of the internet. Dave continues inspiring and teaching us all via his newly launched YouTube channel, courses, and recent books. The apprentice finally meets the master 🙇‍♂️🙇‍♀️

I like Gerhard’s humble approach of assuming you’re wrong and being open to feedback to find a better way. It’s too easy to be that stereotypical spittle-spraying IT turd that’s always like, “WRONG! You obviously don’t know what you’re talking about”. Work gets easier with Gerhard’s way…it’s more frictionless, people don’t hate you, you learn more, and the end product is better.

In that spirit, I know very little about “proper” CI/CD so this was a great learning experience.
