I’ve came across an interesting article summarizing the recent developments of continuous software engineering and related fields. The research has been done by Brian Fitzgerald and his colleagues from LERO: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jss.2015.06.063
I recommend reading this article and here, I just put some thoughts that interested me:
- Feature analytics is still important and will remain important for both the development and operations
- It’s more important to be continuous than to be fast – although I would argue that being slowly continuous is never a good thing, and
- Discontinuous improvement seems to be more interesting than continuous improvement
The article even discusses what kind of recent *2017* developments could be observed in this area, and link to the well-known initiatives, such as Lean and Agile.
