In this chapter, we've been looking at using deployment systems that encourage agile development, generally facilitating safe delivery into production environments of code updates in near real time. Variations in how deployments can be structured and/or understood, which usually depend on factors such as team size and management structure, are common. A brief summary of each of the three typical categories, continuous integration, continuous delivery, and continuous deployment, will be provided in the following sections.
