Ask Me Anything
Dave Farley is a thought leader in the field of continuous delivery, DevOps, and software development in general. He is co-author of the Jolt-award winning book Continuous Delivery, one of the authors of Reactive Manifesto, an independent software developer and consultant, and founder and director of Continuous Delivery Ltd.
Dave has been having fun with computers for over 30 years and has worked on most types of software, from firmware, through tinkering with operating systems and device drivers, to writing games and commercial applications of all shapes and sizes. He started working in large scale distributed systems more than 25 years ago, doing research into the development of loose-coupled, message-based systems — a forerunner of microservice architectures.
He was also an early adopter of agile development techniques, employing iterative development, continuous integration and significant levels of automated testing on commercial projects from the early 1990s.
