Deploy code to production now. Release to users when ready. Learn how to separate code deployment from user-facing feature releases with LaunchDarkly.

This morning on our Continuous Discussions (#c9d9) podcast, our panel talked about Human Factors in IT, and how these factors impact the way Dev and Ops create and operate software - including aspects like maintainability, quality, testing, security, release process and usability.

During the discussion, we touched on the "lens" or perspective individuals have, the work they perform and organization-based factors that set the context for human operations and influence our performance and system reliability.

  • What are human factors as they relate to Human/IT safety?
  • What are the key performance influencing factors affecting DevOps?
  • What patterns can help us identify and mitigate negative factors?
