The DevOps movement has paved the way for CI/CD and streamlined application delivery and release orchestration. These nuanced methodologies have not only increased the scale and speed at which we release software, but also redistributed responsibilities onto the developer and led to innovation and automation throughout the SDLC.

Join us for DZone’s Virtual Roundtable where we bring together the DevOps: CI/CD, Application Delivery, and Release Orchestration Trend Report’s subject matter experts, community contributors, and partners. Our discussion will be focused around software delivery practices and metrics, CI/CD adoption, automated vs. manual deployment processes, and more!
