Release Automation

Ready, Set…CA World ‘16! Get CA Release Automation on the Brain

By johpa12 posted 11-14-2016 12:41 PM


CA World gets off the ground today with unprecedented technical training. Are you ready? CA Release Automation more than doubled our pre-conference sessions this year, offering everything from beginner to advanced sessions and hands-on labs—all led by CA technical experts.


Anand Chauhan, CA Principal Consultant, is kicking things off with an automating application deployment 101 session. This is a great session for those dipping their toes in the water of release automation. He’ll talk about what best practices you should follow and how CA Release Automation can help. He’s followed by a session on how to upgrade to CA Release Automation 6.x, a session on becoming a power user of the tool and a detailed lab for building custom action packs.


Keith Puzey, CA Senior Principal Engineering Services Architect, starts off our second day of pre-conference education with an extensive walk-through of CA’s integrated, open continuous delivery framework—and how it enables zero-touch application releases. This session covers the CA Continuous Delivery portfolio, including the newly acquired performance testing dynamo BlazeMeter, and it will show you the beauty of a connected, end-to-end app delivery ecosystem.


Up next is, Andrew Cluttey, CA Principal Consultant, with a detailed getting started lab for CA Release Automation Continuous Delivery Edition. This session is for any organization that is starting to see the volume, quantity and complexity of releases from multiple organizations causing new bottlenecks in the release pipeline. You’ll learn things like how to plan multiple, concurrent releases, link user stories and defects and resolve dependencies. He’s followed by another great lab on how to build plug-ins for CA Release Automation CD Edition.


And this is just the start of the week.


We know that many of you can’t make the event this year, but we’d like to bring some of this pre-con brain food to you. Vote on the pre-con sessions you’d be most interested in seeing in a community webcast, and we’ll make it happen post-CA World!
