"As Agile in the enterprise matures and reaches further into IT operations, Continuous Delivery helps organizations reduce the risk and time it takes to deliver quality software," said Humble, a principal at ThoughtWorks Studios. "I look forward to helping IT executives develop strategies to innovate rapidly and increase feedback from customers by applying the tools provided by Continuous Delivery."

These executive events offer IT professionals the opportunity to engage with ThoughtWorks industry experts and to learn how Continuous Delivery is shaping the future of software development. Continuous Delivery is a revolutionary Agile methodology that enables any team, including teams within enterprise IT organizations, to achieve rapid, reliable releases through better collaboration between developers, testers, operations and the business. It also enables the automation of the build, deploy, test and release process to massively reduce both cycle time and the transaction cost of putting out new releases.

During the talk Humble will discuss the value of Continuous Delivery to the business, with reference to the Lean Startup movement. He will present the principles and practices of Continuous Delivery, the deployment pipeline, acceptance test driven development, zero-downtime releases and incremental development. He will then outline how Continuous Delivery creates a holistic ecosystem that includes DevOps, cloud computing, Agile testing and continuous deployment.

The Continuous Delivery Executive Events are currently scheduled for Chicago on Oct. 21, from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. at ThoughtWorks corporate headquarters, 25th floor of the AON Center (lunch included). The San Francisco event is scheduled for Nov. 11, from 8 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. (breakfast included) at the Hotel Kabuki.

As you know, enterprise IT conversation over the past year have often centered upon the open-source Kubernetes container orchestration system. In fact, Kubernetes has emerged as the key technology -- and even primary platform -- of cloud migrations for a wide variety of organizations. Kubernetes is critical to forward-looking enterprises that continue to push their IT infrastructures toward maximum functionality, scalability, and flexibility. As they do so, IT professionals are also embracing the reality of Serverless architectures, which are critical to developing and operating real-time applications and services. Serverless is particularly important as enterprises of all sizes develop and deploy Internet of Things (IoT) initiatives.
