On Wednesday May 26, 2010 in Mountain View at LinkedIn, the SDForum SAM SIG hosted David Fortunato and Pascal-Louis Perez of kaChing presenting “Applied Lean Startup Ideas: Continuous Deployment at kaChing.”

kaChing is an online platform that connects investors with investment managers. They see continuous deployment is a way of life and adopted lean methodologies from the start. They can now can commit-to-production in five minutes. They described the mechanics of an automated release from check-in to production. They can clean build with full regression testing in less than 3 minutes, package and deploy by automatically redirecting traffic using ZooKeeper to coordinate and monitoring the release. Their service oriented platform is dubbed “kawala” and is being open sourced at http://code.google.com/p/kawala
