Continuous Delivery at Speed

Continuous Delivery done at speed is a little like driving a Ferrari with your foot flat on the peddle. Fun but you cannot help but feel a little bit concerned you might die.

A developer pushes some half finished feature to a branch, tests are run, code is integrated and deployed to production. This talk will look at what it takes for a startup to implement continuous delivery at speed. Looking at how we have approached these problems at Songkick.com.

Looking at the existing tools, the ones we had to write and the ones we stole from other languages
