Continuous Delivery: A Retrospective with Mike Henders

Continuous delivery and Agile make a great pair. Is this still true in a highly regulated environment such as healthcare? Does ISO 9001 make three a crowd? What happens when your team doubles? Making this work takes a high level of communication and commitment to continuous improvement. Drawing on five years of continuous delivery experience, in this session we will present an honest retrospective of what works, what doesn’t, and what it takes to deliver thousands of software releases as a continuous, repeatable process release after release, year after year.

A technologist and entrepreneur, Mike has been developing software for the cloud since the days of AOL. Mike has been CTO and architect for several startups, and with his latest gig as software architect for Curve Dental, he leads the development of SaaS solutions for the dental industry using agile processes and continuous delivery. When he isn’t reading up and playing around with the latest technologies, he’s teaching his twin boys python and board games, hosting and cooking for game night, playing piano, or going on adventures with his wife of twenty years, and letting her do most of the talking.
