Every Nine Minutes

with 2 comments

The post Every Thirty Minutes highlighted Flickr’s deployment frequency – literally every thirty minutes.

IMVU is reported to do so every nine minutes. The report has created a fair amount of controversy. Whether you are or are not in favor of such continuous deployment, one point is worthy of mention. IMVU is the very same company featured in The Lean Startup presentation. The way they do customer development has been discussed in our recent post Why Agile Matters.

Between what they do in iterative Customer Development and their work on Continuous Deployment IMVU is well worth paying attention to.
