As India's first (and perhaps only) home-grown messaging platform, Hike messenger has been at the forefront of delivering user delight and technological innovation. In achieving our goals, our foray down the Devops route has been an enriching and empowering experience for us as an organisation.  In this conversation, we would like to offer an insight into our journey, the challenges we addressed (and are probably still trying to); all the while ensuring the quality of our user experience and product deliverables is not compromised.

Join this session to understand the typical challenges in building a DevOps culture in a startup mould with high product churn. Plus the interesting tweaks we came up with to setup CI pipeline for Mobile Apps, which has various client builds which need to be in sync with server builds.

    Hi Rishu,

    I think the talk emphasis is on sharing your experience @ Hike about:

    • Building the pipeline for continuous delivery syncing all the products - the backend, the frontend [Android, iOS, Windows mobile etc.]
    • The strategies you applied for building the pipeline
    • The challenges and the solutions worked for you
    • And the tools that you used to solve the above

    The outline you mentioned is on the similar lines but felt there is some mismatch with the description section with the outline, especially description refers to User Experience. Can you confirm about the focus of the talk and update the sections accordingly?

    Thanks,

    Leena
