Deployment Frequency Explained

What's this blog post about?

DORA metrics are crucial in measuring the performance of software development teams. One of these metrics is Deployment Frequency, which tracks how often developers deploy code to production or end users. This metric incentivizes teams to make smaller changes more frequently, leading to shorter feedback loops and faster product iterations. To improve Deployment Frequency, organizations can implement deployment automation, CI/CD setup, release trains, and tracking of deployments. It is essential to invest in visibility, avoid shortcuts that compromise quality or reliability, and foster a collaborative environment rather than individual competition within the team.
