.NET Rocks!

Continuous Delivery 3.0 with Marcel de Vries and Rene van Osnabrugge

Episode #1305 Tuesday, June 7, 2016

How do you do continuous deployment? While at Techorama in Belgium, Carl and Richard sat down with Marcel de Vries and Rene van Osnabrugge to talk about their efforts working with various customers trying to help them get further down the DevOps line of productivity. The conversation digs into the various elements that go into getting to continuous delivery, including a lot of conversation about automating testing - if you're going to build fast, you need to test fast too! Marcel also talks about feature toggling, giving operations the ability to turn features off and on to understand how they behave and improve software quality in the process. Lots to deploy!


Marcel de Vries

As the co-founder and CTO of Xpirit, Marcel spends most of his time looking at how new emerging technologies, a shift in mindset and a new way of work, can help organizations get software in production faster. Helping organizations transform towards a high speed, innovative and productive organization has become his passion. Marcel loves to learn new technologies and teach others what he learned. Besides his work as CTO Marcel also works as a consultant in the field of Application Lifecycle Management, Cloud/Web scale application architectures and Cross platform Enterprise Mobile app development with Xamarin.

Marcel is a frequent speaker at industry conferences like Microsoft TechDays, Visual Studio Live!, Devintersection, Techorama . Marcel host several meetups in his region on Microsoft Azure, Xamarin and ALM. In his spare time he is also an authors of online courses at Pluralsight. Marcel is awarded by Microsoft the Microsoft ALM MVP award for 10 years in a Row and is a Microsoft Regional Director since 2008.

Rene van Osnabrugge

At the age of 20 Rene van Osnabrugge graduated with a bachelors' degree in Business Economics – IT. Instead of moving towards the economic side of things he chose to have career in IT. He started as a Classic programmer and moved through different technologies throughout the years. Classic ASP, Coldfusion, Oracle Forms en PL/SQL and in 2002 started with ASP.Net. <br/><br/> In 2005, during the setup of a software factory in his current company he was a (very) early adopter of TFS 2005, even the beta versions. Because of the link of process and IT it was a matter of a few months before TFS had no secrets anymore. In close cooperation with Microsoft Netherlands Rene evangelized the product for many years by speaking on conferences and regular blogposts on his blog RoadToALM he became an Microsoft ALM MVP back in 2011 . <br/><br/> Currently Rene works as Lead ALM consultant at Xpirit in the Netherlands. He helps companies to improve their software process. Rene always looks broadly. So the way of work, the way people communicate, how scrum is applied are equally important to how tools like build servers, Visual Studio, source control etc are used. In the end it is all about the people and the process and not about the tool.
