In this episode, we learn from Avi Cavale the story of the Shippable pipeline tool, the luck behind the bets made before and during its evolution. We cover how CI is a commodity step in the DevOps process, but still needs to start from the mindsets and actions of developers. We learn the importance of changing the enterprise mindset from minimizing the number of failures, to how quickly resolution can happen; and how focusing on a real bottleneck and addressing that offers a place to start down the track towards more agile, efficient and systematic innovation processes.
