The Continuous Delivery Conference will take place at December 7th in Het Spant in Bussum.

The Continuous Delivery Conference is initialized to address the many changes that impact how we produce and deliver quality software today. It´s set up to help attendees understand where the industry is heading, more effectively achieve the key goals of modern development, and recognize (and overcome) the core challenges they might face along the way.

The central theme of this fourth edition is:

Continuous Delivery: Balancing Autonomy & Governance

Nowadays, many organisations have already implemented Continuous Delivery, or are in the process of doing so. CD is quite easy to implement in a small company with just one or two development teams. But if you have to adopt the practice in larger companies with multiple teams in addition to the challenges of legacy infrastructure, governance, security concerns and clashing cultural norms, the implementation becomes more hazardous.

Even if the technique works and still improves continuously, it takes a lot of time and budget to implement Continuous Delivery in those environments. In general, there are several factors to a successful implementation, and technique is only one of them. In addition, there have to be considered organisational, process and architectural factors. Each one requires significant changes in your organisation, and not all of them are welcome to everybody. Typical “enemies” come from governance, security, compliance etc..

The Continuous Delivery Conference 2017 will share the common pitfalls of these areas and map the challenges that arise when implementing CD at large scale. How did other organisations solve their challenges? How does modern CD-technique look like? How do you integrate well-established quality gates (compliance, security, performance) into CD? What best practices are there?

We would like to invite you to become part of the Continuous Delivery Conference by submitting an innovative best practice or workshop. If you would like to submit a suggestion, take a look into the conditions  and submit your paper before September 7th 2017.

The program board will criticize the papers and focus on content and link(s) with the conference theme. Submitters will receive a notification of acceptance no later than September 18th 2017. Presentations will be scheduled for 40 minutes. Please note that slot lengths include time for audience questions. You should budget at least five minutes for questions, so a standard 40 minute slot will give 30-35 minutes presentation time followed by 5-10 minutes for questions.

Please mark your calendar for attending the entire conference day!

We are looking forward to inspiring input!
