Mr Ship It
Ryan Cromwell, a Scrum.org trainer and Microsoft ALM MVP, joins Adam Cogan to talk about his new Release Cadence Report
From Ryan’s Release Cadence Report website:
What is Release Cadence?
Release Cadence refers to the rhythm or cadence of a development organization’s ability and actual deployment of software. Traditionally, development organizations have employed long periods of time between software deployments for various reasons. In recent years, we’ve seen examples of development organizations leveraging different, often very frequent, deployment cadences as a competitive advantage. The question becomes, what is appropriate for your organization?
We already know that some big companies are already doing Continuous Delivery. Companies such as facebook, flikr, etsy and of course tfs.microsoft.com are doing it. Are you?
