There are 5 steps you might go through in making a process part of a Continuous Delivery system: document, test, script, version, and make it continuous.

At a very high level, the process might be to stop an application server, copy a binary artifact, modify database connections and start the server.
So, the first thing you’d do is...
By the end of this lesson you will be able
- Identify the 5-step heuristic for getting to an automated and continuous process.
- Identify the types of artifacts that can be run continuously in a software delivery system.
