Continuous Deployment allows teams to get immediate feedback, debug, iterate, and fail fast, ultimately getting a better product into the hands of users faster.

In this talk, Kendra and Celia will talk about the challenges and benefits of continuously deploying their staging environments and how they applied that to their production environment during the development of CockroachCloud. They will discuss their use of:

  • Iterative development including PR structure and feature decomposition
  • Pushing all PR to staging environment
  • Feature Flags to make the customer magic happen
