Designing a Continuous Delivery Pipeline

Emily Bache

Designing a pipeline should be done collaboratively

You will need a lot of automated tests in your pipeline to keep lead times short

You will be more competitive with a shorter lead time

Manual testing is important but can be difficult to fit into a pipeline

The four Accelerate metrics used to measure performance

EUROPE'S GREATEST AGILE SOFTWARE TESTING FESTIVAL!

Designing a Continuous Delivery Pipeline

What steps should you include? how long will it take from commit to deploy? Be creative and collaborate to come up with the best solution for your scenario.

In this workshop we will learn about designing a Continuous Delivery pipeline, by playing a game with a custom card deck. We will work in groups, each one designing a pipeline for a slightly different business scenario, with different priorities, risks and competitors.

Some of the cards represent steps you could include in your pipeline, and by laying them out on a table, you will decide which to include and how long each should take. Other cards describe constraints which restrict your design choices.

During the workshop you will learn about the DevOps metrics described in the book ‘Accelerate’ by Nicole Forsgren et al. We will work out the lead time for the pipelines we have designed, and discuss how that will affect our competitiveness in the marketplace.

At the end you will have the chance to take a card deck home with you. You might want to use it to help you design a pipeline for your team.
