In this episode
This time, we focused on deployment and all things related to app distribution: best practices of shipping apps to the app stores, white labeling, and everything developers need to know to manually configure CI. We talked about the main reasons why iOS app distribution is easy to learn but hard to master, and discussed neglected problems on iOS and the best ways to solve them — from Xcode, through fastlane, to release strategies and reaching maturity in continuous deployment. This episode shows developers the steps they need to take to increase their level of automation and better understand how their tools work under the hood.
About this podcast
In Mobile DevOps is a thing! we showcase developers and their processes and learn about the ways in which mobile development processes differ and overlap, through the lens of Mobile DevOps. The aim? Learning how to be more productive and build better apps, whatever technology you might be using. For this, however, we need your help as well — if you have any questions or topics in mind that you would love to hear about in our upcoming podcasts, let us know on Twitter, or through email.
