A2: Making Continuous Delivery work for you: The Songkick Experience
ROOM: PODIUM 9
Like many development teams Songkick’s release process had evolved over time. Eventually it became apparent that our process didn’t work for our rapidly growing team, leading us to radically change our approach and adopt Continuous Deployment. In this talk I’ll explain what we changed and why. I’ll show you how core principles can be used to drive process change and how we removed delays from our release process. Now, several years later we continue to release multiple times a day whilst maintaining a quality product for our users.

B2: The Third Wave; CD for COTS applications at ING
ROOM: PODIUM 5
Continuous Delivery (CD) allows DevOps teams to jointly automate software delivery, achieving faster and more frequent delivery of higher quality applications. But if teams mainly operate Commercial Of The Shelf (COTS) applications, and therefore lack development skills, is it still beneficial and feasible to implement CD? During this session I’d like to share the approach and experiences at ING Bank.

C2: Bringing Portability to Enterprise Applications and environments
ROOM: PODIUM 8
In this session, the presenter discusses the portability of applications and environments across Hybrid Clouds. While Docker is an exciting new technology making applications portable, it should not be viewed as a replacement for a well defined methodology of full stack deployments. To answer this, topics like Software Defined Environments SDE, developer and tester self-service and cloud provisioning will be highlighted. Cloud is centric to these adoptions and OpenStack is a cloud operating system that controls large pools of compute, storage and networking resources throughout a datacenter. Finally, some examples of how such solutions are approached with UrbanCode Deploy(with Patterns), will be presented in combination with different clouds, Openstack and interface with Docker.

D2: Collaboration, Innovation and Modernization in the Enterprise
ROOM: PODIUM 10
JUST EAT went from -10 deploys a year in 2010 to -900+ in 2014, at the same time as scaling from -10 engineers to -150. We’re a .NET platform hosted on Windows. Come learn what we needed to do for this chaos to be workable instead of apocalyptic.
We’ll touch on
- package contracts moving from build to deploy
- feature toggling
- team sizes & responsibility/accountability
- our use of AWS AutoScaling, ELB, CloudFormation
- the roles CI and source control play
- build scripts for server images
