In this workshop we will learn about designing a Continuous Delivery pipeline, by playing a game with a custom card deck. We will work in groups, each one designing a pipeline for a slightly different business scenario, with different priorities, risks and competitors.
Some of the cards represent steps you could include in your pipeline, and by laying them out on a table, you will decide which to include and how long each should take. Other cards describe rules which restrict your design choices.
During the workshop you will learn about the DevOps metrics described in the book ‘Accelerate’ by Nicole Forsgren et al. We will work out the lead time for the pipelines we have designed, and discuss how that will affect our competitiveness in the marketplace.
