Songkick, a London-based Startup, helps music fans find out when their favourite artists are coming to town and get tickets.
In 2011 it became apparent that our release process, although very effective at managing release risk, was too heavy handed for our rapidly growing development team. Constant struggles with our single codebase and test process motivated us to radically change our approach and adopt Continuous Deployment.
In this talk I'll explain what we changed and why. I'll show you how your core principles can be used to drive process change and how we removed many of the delays and frustrations from our release process. Now, several years later we continue to release multiple times a day whilst maintaining a quality product for our users.
