Episode #19
Constructing a versatile SSDLC that can simply do more
with Nick Durkin, Harness

How many pipelines does my organization need? What pipeline construction patterns are most acceptable to my developers? What intelligence should I inject into the pipeline? Nick Durkin, Field CTO & VP of Field Engineering from Harness answers these and more. Join us in this episode as we unpack some philosophical areas of SSDLC architecture while diving into the Harness portfolio to see how they continue to innovate in topics such as Chaos Engineering, Feature Flag Management, Security, Intelligent Testing, Cloud Cost Management (more than just visibility), Service Reliability, and more.


The pipeline underpins the SSDLC process, ensuring not only a collaborative experience between testing, development, and operations, but also an enabler of contemporary delivery approaches such as DevSecOps, Agile, Continuous Integration, and Continuous Delivery. Without a pipeline that can support all interested stakeholders, safe delivery of code at market expectation will be elusive at best.
