Cloud-enabled Development: Putting the Agile into the Infrastructure (presented by Skytap)

Session Type: 
Sponsored [35 minutes]
Speakers

As software development teams seek greater efficiency and effectiveness, they often find that they are held back by old IT architecture for development and test. They wrestle with low-powered servers, difficult-to-scale static environments, and a slow IT provisioning and change processes. Today, software leaders at Calypso, Centric Group, Serena Software, and others have radically changed the way they build, test, and deploy software—almost exclusively using cloud computing to power their development processes.

Build Trust in Your Build to Deployment Flow

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

Frequently deploying to production puts bigger pressure than before on devops to make sure the good, qualified application is provisioned with no mistakes.

This session will explore some common pitfalls with traditional continuous integration that increase risk, introduce manual input and human error, and generally make devops cringe before hitting the “deploy” button.

We will then demonstrate automation techniques that overcome these issues using popular tools, like Maven, Gradle, your CI server, custom scripts and the Artifactory binary repository.
