The DevOps Release Timeline | @DevOpsSummit #Agile #DevOps #ContinuousDelivery

Getting started is often the largest hurdle with any major project

The DevOps Release Timeline
By Necco Ceresani

Getting started is often the largest hurdle with any major project. Research, theory, and discussions are like the 30ft boat taking you and your team from the shore to a seemingly random point in the ocean where you will strap on your diving suit and plunge backward into the depths we’ve come to know as DevOps. The experts make it sound easy, even look easy, but you’re not as convinced the theory will hold up and you won’t be left gasping for air 20 meters below the surface.

The DevOps Release Timeline takes the mystery out of getting started with DevOps by outlining your team’s first sprint. We’ve broken this timeline down into 5 steps to be taken over a two-week period:

  1. Team Alignment
  2. Define the Pipeline
  3. Deploy to Development
  4. Deploy to Environments
  5. Deploy to PROD

Within each of the five steps is a description detailing the who, what, and how of each phase and an allotted number of days to complete them. Teams can use The DevOps Release Timeline as a guide to building their first “DevOps Crew” and creating their own Release Template. While working through this two-week sprint, your team will begin the process of learning how to “do DevOps” in a standard repeatable process, as well as begin customizing this methodology to your enterprise’s unique needs.
