Luke Barrett, Managing Director, ThoughtWorks Europe, comments: “ThoughtWorks continues to champion Continuous Delivery as the future of software development. By speeding up delivery and keeping software production-ready at any point in the application lifecycle, it allows even large enterprises to operate with the agility and innovation of a start-up.
“ThougthWorks Live once again provides the perfect platform for experts in a number of fields to come together and discuss major industry trends. Our talks, panels and case studies are grounded in real experiences, and demonstrate how Continuous Delivery is changing the face of software development for good.”
While releasing software to users has often been a slow and painful process in the past, Continuous Delivery can see projects of any size or complexity released in hours thanks to automation of the build, deployment and testing process, and improved collaboration between developers, testers and operations.
