7:00 - Gates: Why manual intervention in your pipeline is an anti-pattern, and how to overcome it

Summary: Manual steps during your CI/CD pipeline is usually a necessary stage as your devops maturity increases, but lots of teams end up relying on them to provide deployment stability instead of build out proper automated testing, deployment, and monitoring. Jonny will talk about the benefits of removing manual gates from your pipeline, the issues that are presented when doing so, and how to overcome them. The talk also includes a technical demo of using IOT devices to engage your team and encourage them to deploy more often.
