What is Progressive Delivery? You’ve probably heard of continuous delivery (CD) and may even have implemented it at your company. But the value CD offers to your business is rooted in safe, reliable deployments so your production and engineering teams can feel empowered to make changes rapidly without negatively affecting your customer base. Companies like Netflix pioneered a concept called progressive delivery and built it into their in-house version of Spinnaker, the OSS platform powering thousands of enterprises’ CD.

In this discussion, we’ll hear from Andy Glover, director of productivity engineering at Netflix, about how they’ve implemented progressive delivery and the benefits it provides Netflix. Andy will be joined by engineering leaders from AWS, Snap and Playstation who are also implementing progressive delivery to enable safer deployments for their developers.
