Prerequisite Knowledge

- basic understanding of continous delivery pipeline - basic understanding of monitoring

Description

While I was experienced in web operations/delivery, I learned that mobile delivery has its own subset of problems. The concepts of continuous delivery are the same, but the tooling is quite different. Finding these tools is even harder.

The tools discussed will mostly be open source or freely available services, focused around both iOS and Android development.

The talk will be based on an our experience with TV show apps (a quiz show). The show is currently running in production with over a few million games played and >100K users.

We’ve had our share of support to make this smooth, so we will explain the life of the app beyond when it is published in the App Store.

Small Town Heroes

Patrick Debois is cofounder and CTO of Small Town Heroes. In order to understand current IT organizations, Patrick has made a habit of changing both his consultancy role and the domain that he works in: sometimes as a developer, manager, sysadmin, tester, and even as the customer. If there is one thing that annoys him, it is the great divide between all these groups. Patrick presented concepts on Agile infrastructure at Agile 2008 in Toronto, and in 2009 he organized the first devopsdays. Since then he has been promoting the notion of DevOps to exchange ideas between these groups and show how they can help each other to achieve better results in business.
