This presentation from award-winning continuous delivery author explores two "tools" that we can use to give a real practical advantage in our work, testability and speed.
In most disciplines "engineering" means the stuff that works, an application of scientific reasoning to solving practical problems. In software, depending on your background, it either means something bureaucratic that doesn't work, or it is just another name for software development.
So what are the ideas that we can use as tools to give real, practical advantage in our work in the way that other disciplines achieve? What ideas should we treat as "the tools of our trade" whatever the technology or problem before us?
