The Developer’s Edge | A progressive delivery toolchain


Welcome to the Developer's Edge video series. This series looks at Atlassian products and partner integrations through a developer lens; showing off how an integrated toolchain can improve the developer experience while increasing productivity.


Progressive delivery with Jira Software, CircleCI, and LaunchDarkly

Progressive delivery is an iterative process that decouples the deployment of software changes from the release of those changes to customers. Software deployments are typically managed with CI/CD tools such as Bitbucket pipelines, or CircleCI. Software release is typically managed with feature flagging tools such as LaunchDarkly or Split. Software deployment can be a slow process, and recovering from a bad deployment can leave customers in a bad spot while a fix is being worked on. Decoupling software deployment from software release can simplify the software deployment process and make recovering from bad deployments much faster, and easier.

The next video in the Developer’s Edge video series shows how to use Jira Software to implement a progressive delivery methodology by integrating with Bitbucket, CircleCI, and LaunchDarkly. See how the Jira Software release tab lets you manage the progressive delivery of features, see how you can use multiple CI/CD tools to deploy your changes and see how you can use LaunchDarkly feature flags to incrementally release software to customers in a controlled way.

Thanks for sharing. The video was very helpful, clear and direct. Note that the Jira Automation learning link is broken.
