The Death Of Continuous Integration

The Death Of Continuous Integration

As delivery teams mature and adopt Continuous Delivery they will explicitly discard practices that have become more costly over time. However, many teams today are implicitly discarding Continuous Integration, due to ever-easier Feature Branching and an under-appreciation of Trunk Based Development. What are the consequences of this Continuous Isolation trend for agile development and Continuous Delivery?

In this talk Steve Smith will describe how ever-better Feature Branching tooling has harmed Continuous Integration, compare the cost vs. value of Feature Branching and Trunk Based Development, and explain why Continuous Delivery without Continuous Integration is asking for trouble.
