Guest speaker: Angel RiveraThe adoption of CI/CD has automated the process of how DevOps teams build, test, and deliver software at rapid speeds and with high confidence. Although CI/CD platforms offer many benefits, in the attempt to make sophisticated pipelines, many teams run into the issue of “Pipeline Sprawl”. Pipeline sprawl makes it difficult for DevOps teams to identify and reuse common execution patterns which diminishes their ability to efficiently ship new code. In this talk, Angel will discuss the common pain points associated with existing CI/CD platforms. The talk will pull in examples from his recent experience and conversations with DevOps teams from across the open source community, startups, and large enterprises. Attendees will learn technical strategies to develop pipeline configurations that diminish potentially costly vendor-lock in.Support the show (
Speaker: Saim SafderAs we all know Kubernetes is the defacto standard for running containerize workflows. The goal of the modern application developer and infrastructure engineer is to achieve a microservices base development.  As a result of the microservice shift, knowledge of how to leverage Kubernetes is required help facilitate scaling in the following scenarios: enterprise business, open source sector, and private corporate sector. This is why investing time in the kubernetes and cloud native landscape is essential. What people really want to know is how to implement CD with kubernetes and is it worth the investment? Is it too early to start? Join to hear more about Saim's perspective and expertise. Support the show (

Speakers: Kara de la Marck, James Rawlings, and James Strachan GitOps uses Git as the “single source of truth” for declarative infrastructure and enables developers to manage infrastructure with the same Git-based workflows they use to manage a codebase. Having all configuration files version-controlled by Git has many advantages, but best practices for securely managing secrets with GitOps remain contested. Join us in this presentation about GitOps and secret management. We'll discuss the pros and cons of various approaches and why the Jenkins X project has chosen to standardize on Kubernetes External Secrets for secret management.Support the show (

Speaker: Viktor Farcic from CodefreshToday in episode 16 we are tackling the definitions of CI, CD, and CDP from the point of view of Viktor Farcic.  What Is Continuous Integration (CI), Continuous Delivery (CD), and Continuous Deployment (CDP)? Why do many mix those practices and why do we change the definitions from one case to another? What is the relation between CI/CD and GitOps? How do those practices change with the shift to Cloud, Kubernetes, and serverless?Support the show (
In episode 15 we have a special guest that will also be a keynote speaker at our upcoming event cdCON! Tracy Miranda is the executive director of the Continuous Delivery Foundation (CDF) where she leads the mission to improve the world’s capacity to deliver software with security and speed. It is an exciting time to be in the CI/CD industry. We are delivering more software than ever before and at a rate and scale that we might not have imagined years ago. 15 years ago continuous integration and continuous delivery were not common practices but today they are the key differentiators for every industry, whether you are a releasing a new banking app or a new contact tracing app. Delivering software securely and speed matters to every aspect of modern life.We have huge opportunities to innovate and advance continuous delivery adoption. Yet there are some challenges which make this difficult to do so. Being a relatively new industry, we often talk at cross purposes about terms and phrases – the same words mean vastly different things to different teams. The landscape is confusing, often impenetrable to newcomers and changing habits to adopt emerging practices sometimes feels overwhelming to teams.In this talk, we will look at the origins of continuous delivery, how it has evolved to present day and where it is going. We will also talk about the role open source communities will play to make continuous delivery simpler yet more innovative, widespread yet inclusive and faster yet still secure.

Guest speaker: Andy GrabnerWhile software architects have broken their monoliths into event-driven service architectures, many pipeline architects still try to apply a monolithic pipeline approach to deliver these new architectures. This results in constantly outdated pipeline code, tight integration of process and tools, lengthy diagnostics sessions to fix broken pipelines and puts strains on the underlying resources that build, deploy, test and validate. In this workshop we introduce a new approach: Event-based Continuous Delivery which decouples the declaration of processes from tooling. It uses a “everything as code” approach which includes deployment, testing, quality gate, observability and promotion definitions. One open source project which implements this new approach is Keptn ( Listen to this episode to learn more.Support the show (
Guest Speaker: Tiffany JachjaDevOps adoption rates have quickly risen throughout organizations that own software services. For many of these organizations looking to scale their efforts beyond pilots and one-off initiatives, they often find themselves on the curve of diminishing returns. Value stream management is a lean business process that helps organization leaders track the value of their software efforts and resources. Using value stream management practices, you can optimize your flow of materials and information by lowering costs and improving value adds.

Join Helen Beal today as she covers...The origins of continuous delivery are in the agile manifesto where, in the first of twelve principles, it’s stated that the highest priority is to satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable software. Fast forward nearly twenty years to a world subsumed by DevOps, where continuous delivery is synonymous with pipeline technology and we have an emerging market around value stream management. In this podcast, we’ll explore the relationship between all these pieces and see how they all fit together with the same ultimate goal: the improvement of organizational performance.Support the show (
