Continuous Delivery And Deployment - Inspirational Quotes

Recently I've read a lot about continuous deployment and deliver. This blog post gathers some inspirational quotes which can inspire you to implement CD in your team.

Done means "released". This implies ownership of a project right up until it’s in the hands of the user, and working properly. There’s none of this "I’ve checked in my code so it’s done as far as I’m concerned".
James Betteley
Our highest priority is to satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable software.
Principles behind the Agile Manifesto
Just ship, baby.
Kent Beck
How long does it take you to get one line of code into production?
Wisdom of the Internet ;)
We don’t have a release manager and there are no set weekly deploys. Developers and designers are responsible for shipping new stuff themselves as soon as it’s ready.

DevOps (a portmanteau of development and operations) is a software development method that stresses communication, collaboration and integration between software developers and information technology(IT) professionals. DevOps is a response to the interdependence of software development and IT operations. It aims to help an organization rapidly produce software products and services.
Continuous Deployment is the notion of having the automated build infrastructure, the Continuous Integration server, go one step further and roll out deployments to the running server.
If it hurts do it more often.
Wisdom of the Internet ;)
continuous delivery means minimizing lead time from idea to production and then feeding back to idea again
Rolf Andrew Russell
[teams] must learn to trust themselves to deliver the level of quality that is required for continuous deployment.
Paul Klipp

P.S. The second part of quotes is here.

Not wisdom of the internet, Mary and Tom's Poppendieck wisdom.

Hi Tomek,
Just a small correction, the quote "How long does it take you to get one line of code into production?" is not wisdom of the internet, it's a quote from Mary and Tom Poppendieck book "Implementing Lean Software Development" and it reads:

"How long would it take your organization to deploy a change that involves just one single line of code? Do you do this on a repeatable, reliable basis?"
