Abstract [en]

Manual deploys and testing of code can be both time-consuming and error-prone. Many repetitive manual steps can lead to critical tests or necessary configuration being forgotten or being skipped due time-constraints resulting in software that doesn’t work as intended when deployed to production. The purpose of this report is to examine whether continuous delivery(CD) could lead to any positive effects and if there are any obstacles for CD in an Episerver project at Sigma ITC. The study was done by implementing a CD pipeline for a project similar to a real project at Sigma then letting the developers work with it and interviewing them about their current workflow, their attitude towards the different steps involved and if they saw any problems with CD for their project. Even if the developers, in general, where positive to CD they had some reservations about it in their current projects. The main obstacle the developers saw where the time/cost which would affect the customer and also some uncertainty around the complexity in testing Episerver. The results show that there could be positive effects of CD even if the project type is not optimal for reaping all the CD benefits, it all depends on people involved seeing a value in testing and the questions around testing in Episerver are straightened out.
