This tutorial will be delivered as an in-depth, interactive talk. It will describe the ideas of Continuous Delivery as a practical everyday process, highlighting some of the techniques developed while working on a complex real world CD project. It will provide an overview of the key process details: describing deployment pipelining as a technique to structure automation, pipeline monitoring to gain insight into progress and status, approaches to configuration management, automated acceptance testing and automated deployment as well as many other aspects of the CD approach to software delivery. At the end of this you should have more insight into how to tailor the Continuous Delivery approach to your needs. Dave Farley is co-author of the book "Continuous Delivery" which describes the use of high levels of automation and collaboration in the delivery process to ensure high quality software and a reduction in errors and late nights.
