Figure 1.5 – Mobile DevOps considerations

In order to accelerate the Mobile DevOps process and success, the team should consider the following considerations and best practices:

  • Ensure that version control is robust so that merging conflicts and lost work are minimized
  • Build automation (CI/CD) so you can focus on creating rather than managing complex pipelines
  • Test frequently and automate to respond to feedback (shift-left testing)
  • Manage your mobile apps’ artifacts to release them where they belong
  • Be sure to keep your security in mind
  • Make a small start and grow intelligently from there
  • Creating is about designing and developing
  • Perform app monitoring and status checking continuously
