Continuous delivery is great because its fast feedback loop that immediately shows developers the effects of their work.

We’d like to share with you 7 ways of learning through continuous delivery that will help build an organizational culture of learning and responsibility.

- small fixes and easy documenting
- metrics-driven learning
- continuous product discovery
- continuous experimentation
- test-driven development adoption
- high-level of team collaboration
