Continuous Deployment

How long does it take you to push a change live to your users? Hours? Days? Worse?

Are your scheduled software deployments a source of frustration, stress and downtime?

Have you ever built a feature only to find out it must be rewritten to work in your production environment?

Continuous Deployment takes the pain out of software delivery so you can focus on making happy customers.

Learn how to set up a Build-Test-Deploy pipeline in popular environments like Pivotal Cloud Foundry and Amazon Web Services. Also practice incrementally releasing features and schema changes while effectively monitoring your deployments.
