Presentation: How Comcast Automates Deployments

Day of week: Tuesday


Continuous Delivery doesn’t end with automated deployments. Once your code is released to production, any minor imperfection or glitch can affect millions of users. It just doesn’t make sense to sift through logs and rely on end user reports at scale.

To solve this, the X1 Platform for XFINITY TV has introduced an automated error resolution strategy. In this talk, John McCann, Executive Director of Product Engineering at Comcast, will share automated workflows that his teams are using to resolve errors the minute they appear and drive down the mean time to resolution for over 10 million video customers.
