Accepted Session
Short Form
Scheduled: Tuesday, June 21, 2016 from 1:30 – 2:15pm in B301


An exploration of the cost and value of CI/CD, and a walkthrough of setting up a CI/CD pipeline.


Continuous integration/deployment is a methodology for making small, iterative changes that get deployed frequently. Many companies have reservations about adopting this strategy, from small startups with important deadlines to large enterprises with lengthy release cycles. We’ll explore the cost and value of the CI/CD methodology and how it fits into your organization, then set up a CI/CD pipeline using Spring Boot, Cloudfoundry, and a CI/CD server to see it in action.
