How Not to Release Software

A session at OSCON 2011

Friday 29th July, 2011

11:00am to 11:40am (PST)

Review worst practices for releasing software: how to destroy scope in a single meeting; "death sprints" (more agile than death marches); how to avoid testing; how to make your software impossible to configure; and finally, when pushing out a webapp release, how to make your ops team hate you. This tongue in cheek session will review things learned painfully and late at night.
