Utpal Writes

It doesn’t have to be a perfect delivery. Not delivering is usually the wrong delivery. Just make one. In fact, make quite a lot of. Decide to deliver early and often. Just deliver. It’s okay if your software still needs some improvement. Whether you delivered it or not, matters. Certainly, it’s unsafe and throbbing. That’s what. That’s why it’s a most valuable tool. and did someone tell you that you’re part of an agile project?

Control: For the User, by the User, of the User


As mentioned in the preceding articles in this series “ Continuous Development: ‘Times Are a-Changin’” and “How to Deploy Like Nobody’s Watching , ” developers are using feature flags as a best practice to reduce risk in development cycles by separating code deployments from feature releases. For older methods of software delivery, this risk is exacerbated due to longer dev cycles and bigger releases. Continuous Delivery is the idea of moving from monthly forecasting to hourly.

Continuous Development: ‘Times Are a-Changin’


In 2014, I left VMware for GitHub, and I was in awe of how they sometimes released multiple updates per day using practices like automated testing and continuous integration, short-lived branching, and continuous deployment.

How to Deploy Like Nobody’s Watching


There is a continuous desire in DevOps to have a greater connection between the development of a service or application and the operation of the code in production. But this independent delivery of services has also shed light on the tight coupling that often persists after services are separated. Enterprises are also being confronted with an increasing number of use cases that require the delivery of a personalized application experience.

How Atlassian Uses Feature Management to Continuously Deliver


Continuous Delivery. These improvements have been driven by a cultural shift to a continuous delivery approach.

Without a continuous delivery approach, this recent project could have been a multiyear project.

The Cost Center Trap
