Building Umbraco websites in big teams

At the Council of EU, we have a team made of 10 people between developers and designers and we have many features built at the same time. And we still manage to release an update to our website every two weeks.

In this talk, we'll go through our development configuration, how we set up automated build, quality assurance, and deployment. We are going to show how we manage long-running features that span multiple sprints without going insane.

Target audience: Technical

Level: Intermediate
