Continuous Delivery / DevOps

Something that I particularly enjoy about living in London is the time that I have each morning and evening during the commute between home and work for reading on the Underground.

One of the books that I am currently reading is Continuous Delivery - Reliable Software Releases Through Build, Test, and Deployment Automation. I found the first chapter acted as a timely reminder for my recent resignation. To paraphrase, skillful and experienced team members getting bogged down with manual deployment processes doesn't make for a fun and productive environment.

The first half of this week has been dedicated to updating 7 existing websites, and launching a completely new one. So far it has been relatively painless, but tiring.
