Designing Software to enable DevOps and Continuous Delivery Practices



Half-day tutorial 17 September 2014, Chicago

The Agile movement strives to shorten feedback cycle time for software development. Recent movements in Continuous Delivery and DevOps extend this focus to deployment and operations with a focus on getting quality software deployed to the end user more quickly and confidently.

There is a lot of talk about streamlining the deployment pipeline focused on process analysis; however, we suggest design of the software to be deployed can also an enabler, or inhibitor, for achieving deployment goals. For example, poorly designed component dependencies may make it difficult to complete continuous integration builds within target threshold (e.g., 10 minute rule of thumb) or lack of interfaces in component design can limit ability to automate tests.

In this tutorial, we describe an approach for designing with deployability in mind. We apply a scenario-based approach for specifying concrete and measureable deployment-focused requirements using several examples derived from real projects. We then walk through the process of designing to enable deployment goals leveraging a set of deployment-focused design tactics and patterns collected from projects striving toward continuous delivery.
