Code Freeze 2012: Continuous Delivery

Date of Event: 
Thursday, January 12, 2012 - 8:00am to 4:30pm
McNamara Alumni Center, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis Campus

The University of Minnesota's Software Engineering Center brings you the 7th annual CodeFreeze symposium open to all software engineering professionals. This year's program chairs are David Hussman of DevJam and Mike Whalen from the U of Minnesota and their program promises to make for an exciting day.

Code Freeze 2012 focuses on the topic of continuous delivery. Getting software released to users is often a painful, risky, and time-consuming process. This workshop focuses on principles and practices that enable rapid and repeatable deployment of high-quality releases to users. This requires automation and integration in build, test, and deployment tools as well as coordination between development, testing, and operations teams. Participants will be challenged to ponder how to best deploy systems and all questions and suggestions will be welcomed.

Thursday, January 12
8:00am - 5:00pm
University of Minnesota's McNamara Alumni Center (200 Oak St. SE.)

Cost for the full day is $95 for the general public and $80 for alumni of the Software Engineering (MSSE) and Computer Science (CS) programs.
