Frontend deploys previously have been a slow, and often manual process. Even then, testing different branches, rolling back releases with bugs, etc. have been pretty painful.
Lightning deployments is a very simple, yet a very impactful concept that hasn’t been used enough.
- How a frontend deployment happened at Shuttl and many other companies
- QA testing in the traditional frontend deployment setup
- How lightning deployments work and their conveniences
- Benefits with QA testing
- Benefits with previewing unreleased versions to customers
- Dealing with bugs faster than ever before because of instant rollbacks
- Basic familiarity of how frontend projects are traditionally built, both as independent frontends, and as fullstack monoliths
