    Talk / The biggest trick consultants ever pulled, was convincing the world continuous delivery is easy!

    Continuous Delivery and DevOps are practices that will help enhance the quality of an organisation and it's products. However it's unfortunate that both have also become practices that consultants will try and sell whilst telling us we can implement a check list to achieve it. This couldn't be further from the truth.

    This session will focus on the most common misconceptions that exist within continuous delivery and devops eco-system right now. The session will given battle hardened stories about why these misconceptions are bad practice and suggest some alternatives that may help your journey
