Air Force’s DevOps Team Reaches Code Deployment Goal Amid COVID-19

1 min read

The COVID-19 pandemic has pushed the U.S. Air Force’s Platform One DevOps team to advance Agile software development by deploying 10 software updates per day for a secure communications platform, Nextgov reported Wednesday.

“We’ve consistently been at 10 deployments per day since that occurred,” Maj. Rob Slaughter, director of Platform One, told the publication. “For a while there, we were in the area of 30 deploys per day. Now, we’re probably at, like, 12.”

He said the communications tool has become a “dire need” as more service personnel started teleworking as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, prompting the Platform One team to rapidly field code.

According to the report, Platform One works on several programs, including F-35, F-16 and F-18; Space C2 and SpaceCAMP; the Joint Artificial Intelligence Center (JAIC); and Northern Command Pathfinder.
