New From Heavybit

In this week’s episode of To Be Continuous, LaunchDarkly’s Edith Harbaugh and CircleCI’s Paul Biggar discuss the emergence of the term “DevOps 2.0.” They work out a definition and show how continuous delivery can give your team incredible early validation powers.

A post from Heavybit this week offers some advice: “In a crap market, don’t abandon your developer community.” It’s been a tough year for startups, but product value is increased by the size of your user base.
