Building a CI/CD Framework: Event Recap

Atlanta’s engineers, architects and IT leaders gathered at Roam Dunwoody on July 26th to hear Shadow-Soft’s John Ray and Derrick Sutherland talk through their CI/CD Automation Framework.

Special thanks to Red Hat Ansible for sponsoring the event. Their support helped us provide a great space for networking, drinks, and food!

Why do you need a CI/CD framework?

John Ray kicked things off by defining a framework and outlining three reasons why a CI/CD framework is important:

  1. Lowers cost
  2. Reduces risk
  3. Helps you respond faster to client needs
