DevOps Goes Mobile
We've learned a lot through doing DevOps: Every commit is automatically integrated, tested, and deployed to a staging environment. And then it only takes one push of a button and the release goes live... Unfortunately, it's not as simple anymore when operating mobile applications: How can you quickly update your mobile software when the app store provider wants to test your software first for a few days? How can you update your configuration when your app can run offline? And how do you track down errors when the data is distributed to millions of mobile clients? Those were just some of the challenges we encountered during the operation of mobile games with millions of daily users. In this talk, Jesper Richter-Reichhelm, Head of Engineering at Wooga, will talk about the solutions he and his team have found to address these challenges.
