2 challenges, one healthcare app, continuously delivered (Part II)
(This post is the second and final part of a two-part blog and focuses on continuous delivery. Previous postGiven that the healthcare environment has such strict regulatory requirements and legal boundaries it is a challenge in itselfto write good software that fits the bill.
