4:30pm - 5:45pm

Level: Introductory to Intermediate

Marcel de Vries



Continuous delivery strives to deliver features on demand any time they're needed. This is challenging if you run an operation that needs to be available 24x7. This session will look at different technologies available to separate feature deployments from feature exposure, making it possible to make releasing a feature to the end user nothing more than the flip of a switch. You'll examine how to use the different technologies like feature toggles and traffic management to implement continuous delivery release techniques like A/B Testing, Canary releases and dark launching.

You will learn:

  • About working with Feature toggles instead of a branch
  • About using Microsoft release manager
  • About using Traffic Management and Deployment slots to create a canary release or a dark launch
