Best practices for getting to continuous deployment faster and with dramatic results in reduced outage minutes, development costs, and QA testing cycles. Brought to you by Rainforest QA.

I presented a webinar Organizing for Continuous Delivery earlier this week, which was a lot of fun. The recording of me droning over the slides is available at that link. I mentioned a number of books that influenced my thinking on the presentation, so I’d like to share the list here, with some additional ones that I’d recommend for people interested in this stuff. (Disclaimer, these are Amazon affiliate links.)  More of the Videos on Continuous Deliver Series can be found here.
