A while ago a friend of mine recommended a new book from Martin Fowler’s signature series:
Continuous Delivery: Reliable Software Releases through Build, Test, and Deployment Automation (At Amazon.com)
I finally got a chance to spend a bit of time with it and have now ordered it. I’ve been blogging about principles of successful deployments and it looks like this covers a lot of those topics and a lot more—and it’s sure to be better written.
I’ll keep blogging on the subject here since it helps clarify my own thinking. But as I get a chance to read through the book I expect to further develop the things I’ve learned over the years and may even change my mind on some things. I’ll be sure to mention the book when it has taught me something new.
Thanks, friend, for the recommendation, and thanks, Jez Humble and David Farley for writing the book—it looks fantastic!
