ICST 2023
Sun 16 - Thu 20 April 2023 Dublin, Ireland

Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Delivery (CD) are increasingly widespread throughout the technology sector. As large engineering organizations adopt CI/CD they are often met with scalability challenges. What works for small teams has not proven to work for large teams. This workshop invites practitioners and academics to come together and informally discuss the challenges and opportunities in build, test, and release automation.
