Currently reading through this gem of a book, these drawings by Nhan Ngo are great!
Here are some excerpts from the book:
Every time a change is committed to version control, the expectation is that it will pass all of its tests, produce working code, and can be released into production. This is the starting assumption. The job of a continuous integration system is to disprove this assumption
It should be possible for a new team member to sit down at a new workstation, check out the project’s revision control repository, and run a single command to build and deploy the application to any accessible environment, including the local development workstation.
In one of my researching “DevOps and current state in the marketplace” moments, I came across these 4 drawings by Nhan Ngo (Engineer at Spotify) – (Distributed under a Creative Commons licence), that she created whilst reading a book called “Continuous Delivery: Reliable Software Releases through Build, Test, and Deployment Automation (Addison-Wesley Signature Series (Fowler))”
