7th Gathering

The CoDe Alliance is gathering every six month. Gatherings are hosted by one of the members; we share thoughts, presentations, and demo results and new approaches.

The next gathering is at Volvo in Gothenburg on November 13th and 14th

Alliance Chat

In the 6 previous gatherings, we have met for a full day, but for the first time that we’ll be gathering for two full days.

The theme of this gathering is traceability: there will be several topics around this and the 2nd day will have focus on this.


November 13th


Doors open - light breakfast

We will gather and mingle around a cup of coffee to wait for the ones travelling to Gothenburg.


Welcome and round table

After a few welcoming words, all participants will present their company’s pains and prouds from the Continuous Delivery efforts, as well as expectations for this gathering.




Volvo presentation

Our host Volvo will share details on how they work with Continuous Delivery, DevOps, Test and Automation. Volvo has many different teams working on improving and automating software development processes. they will also present the SIL test setup.


Demo and lightening talks

Git Phlow - daily life now with Jira, Windows and Jenkins pipeline (more details)

Jenkins As Code - A flexible MVP with complete separation of configuration for easy maintenance and upgrade (more details)

All the traceability projects - kick-start of our theme (more details)


Open space discussions

We have more than two hours for open space discussions breaking out in smaller groups gathering around the demos and lightening talks above, or other suggested topics from members, or from our complete list of recent initiatives.


Wrap-up and constituting work groups

We jointly wrap up the sessions and we constitute work groups around our efforts going forwards until to the next gathering.





We will as always share a simple but cosy meal, and a few beers in the city center. This time, it will be at Ölrepubliken.

November 14th


Welcome and planning of the day

Come on time, Volvo is offering breakfast!



The morning will be dedicated to workshops, hackathons, and discussions on the topic of Tracey (Eiffel, QuTiCon, Compliance as Code…). We should be able to have two tracks, if needed. So, it is also possible to group around subjects from our complete list of recent initiatives, where we will be ready to present those not already presented and discuss road maps and new ideas.

The traceability workshop: This will be one important workshop run by Praqma. We will go into more details on different projects and efforts, than the lightening talk allowed. We also hope to present customer specific examples, maybe with the member. The goal of this workshop is to look at the overall goals we could share in a new initiative, and then try to draft the architecture of a system that you can easily deploy and work with as it evolves through our alliance.
