My Monolith is Melting

A session at PIPELINE 2015

Bringing change to legacy systems and monolithic waterfall programs is daunting, but doable. In this session we’ll look at a real world example of how we undertook the technical, cultural and process challenges to move to continuous delivery in a big organisation. You’ll hear about the epic battles with the dreaded CAB (Change Approval Board), the fight to move architecture discussions from Word documents to the whiteboards, and the myriad smaller skirmishes along the path to delivering features to our users faster, safer & more measurably.
