Reviewed in the United States on March 18, 2013
Of course, there are few other books in the market that touch on Continuous Delivery. However, here in this book the authors Jez Humble and David Farley have provided detailed and in-depth treatment of this subject with real examples that are relevant. I have been in software development and delivery business for many years, and I do not hesitate to say that I have experienced all of the anti-patterns described in "some common release antipatterns" not once but several times. If I have to choose the parts of this book, my favorites are Chapters 2. Configuration Management, 3. Continuous Integration, 8. Automated Acceptance Testing, 10. Deploying and Releasing Applications, and 15. Managing Continuous Delivery. Believe me, I have read and reread these chapters. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to be successful using the Continuous Delivery practice in an Agile environment. Even if someone is already working in an Agile environment and practicing Continuous Delivery, I am sure there are best practices that they can pick up from this book and use right away.
