After new code is deployed and introduced all changes, we go to the Deployment and Release stage.

The Deployment stage of a software development is the last stage. The goal of the deployment phase is to have the software deployed to a production environment so that the end users can start using it.

During this stage, the developers and other key stakeholders can interact with the new product and make sure that its working seamlessly in the production environment. It ensures that the product is ready to run smoothly in a real environment.

During the development stage and beyond, we take care of deploying new code and any changes introduced to the product to ensure that the software performance matches the requirements.

We divide deployment process into 3 key practices:

1. Covering code in tests

At every stage of the development process, we cover code in tests to detect and eliminate bugs.

2. Applying CI/CD pipelines

Continuous integration is responsible for integrating new code into a mainline code base, and continuous delivery allows us to release code to the staging environment or the pre-production environment to ensure the code is ready to be pushed to production. More about CI/CD pipelines in this article:

3. Product Release

Once we have ensured that the software works as expected, the product becomes available to the end-users.

Even if it is the last stage, due to the complexity of the software product and the number of changes that are required, the maintenance phase is typically carried out following the delivery of the final product.
