Just thought I would share a blog post on how Amazon does continuous deployment. The title of the article highlights a key goal: faster deployment of completed features. This is a key metric that identifies high performing teams, i.e., deployment latency. In her book, Accelerate: The Science of Lean Software and DevOps, Nicole Fosgren identified this as one of four highly predictive metrics for high performing software teams.
The section on risk management is especially worthwhile. The risk reduction strategies mentioned in the article can be implemented with AWS Code Pipeline and/or Kubernetes Deployments.https://aws.amazon.com/builders-library/going-faster-with-continuous-delivery/
