Jennifer Bonine: Hello. We are back with our first interview of the final day of our virtual conference. Thanks to everyone for tuning into our interviews. I'm here with Cheezy. Cheezy, thanks for joining me today.
Jeff Morgan: You're very welcome.
Jennifer Bonine: I appreciate having you. For those folks out there that aren't familiar or haven't had the opportunity to meet you yet, why don't you tell them what your expertise is and your area that you specialize?
Jeff Morgan: Great. I'm an agile coach. That's my profession. I have a specialization in that I work in the technical practices, so more of the XP-type practices. For the last several years that's been a large emphasis on continuous delivery and continuous deployment.
Jennifer Bonine: For all of you out there who are struggling with getting started with continuous integration, continuous delivery, things around agile, this is a good person to know and to reach out to around those topics. You work with a lot of different clients.
Jeff Morgan: Yes.
Jennifer Bonine: Maybe tell us where you're seeing the trend in terms of with some of the CI and the agile, how that's impacting not only the technology groups but the businesses that are obviously the people the technology groups are helping to enable, support, and develop for.
Jeff Morgan: Great question. From a technology standpoint the technology is maturing very, very rapidly. I think that's largely because more and more companies are trying to go down this path. In fact as you've seen it's been a huge topic here at the Conference as well.
Jennifer Bonine: Yes.
