Getting the most from your CI/CD experience

Time: Wednesday 17th May 12:00-12:30
Room: Track 1
Track: Web Tools & Technologies

In this talk, Karl will dive into a CI/CD maturity model which can evaluate how far you are into the DevOps experience.

We will dive into a complete end-to-end user story familiar to us all, from the start of adoption until being fully mature, and explore all the avenues of opportunity along the way.

Attendees will be able to evaluate their own CI/CD maturity and discover what might be in store for their journey next and into the future, and learn about some opportunities between where they are now, and where they can expect to arrive in the future.
