The other day, at DevOps Midwest, Heath Moylan told a story from RGA from their evolution toward DevOps. In the beginning there was no continuous integration. Then developer teams started running Jenkins on their own, each their own instance, and it was useful. In time, the larger organization noticed that it was useful. Meanwhile, these Jenkins installations aged: they were out of date, with lax password security. Clearly this is not OK for Compliance etc.

In my last post, I wrote about Self-Service Delivery, which is an approach that makes the tools necessary to develop and deliver applications available via self-service.

To support the release of Project Uhura, we are happy to announce the release of SDM 1.4. Read more about Uhura in Ryan's introduction post. In addition to the SDM framework we also released a new project called sdm-pack-analysis which underpins Uhura and provides a very flexible approach to scanning projects for common delivery patterns and scheduling goals and goal fulfillments based on scanned results. More details on sdm-pack-analysis will be part of another blog post.

My last post discussed the danger of programming in YAML, with examples from the CI domain, where YAML is the norm for defining delivery pipelines. Worse still is YAML programming at scale. As services multiply, so do the YAML files, and so does duplication and drift. This holds us back.
