How do you automate the non-existing deployment routines of an organization with over 100 different customers, each having their own environments? How do you convince the leaders, developers and customers to give you the resources needed in order to automate everything?  Is it really possible to introduce a deployment routine that works for everyone?

In less than six months, Karoline transformed the deployment routines at Epinova by introducing Octopus Deploy to the organization. She will take you through the steps needed to get started, the pitfalls along the way, and success that Octopus Deploy has become.

In this workshop we will start out by installing an Octopus Deploy server and tentacle on your laptop, before looking at the basic concepts of Environments, Machines, Roles and Projects. You will create a project of your own and deploy this using Octopus Deploy before we round off by looking at the advanced topics of Script modules, Step templates, Variable sets and Retention Policies.

At the end of this workshop, you'll have all the knowledge you need in order to create a more efficient and failproof deployment process for your project. Keep calm and deploy to production.
