We are happy to announce the launch of the new series, CD Foundation User Stories, with the first being from Gerard McMahon, Head of ALM Tools and Platforms at Fidelity Investments.
The CDF User Stories Program features real-world use cases from companies embracing the change brought by Continuous Delivery, increasing their ability to deliver software with security and speed. The goal for the stories is to show the impact of adopting Continuous Delivery as a software development practice along with enabling CD technologies, (such as the CDF projects) the steps taken by respective organizations, and the additional benefits these resulted in improving the developer experience and productivity.
We see the CDF User Stories becoming a valuable resource for organizations considering adopting Continuous Delivery and open source technologies and showcasing participating organizations as leaders in their field.
