Paul Puckett
United States Army, Director of Cloudy Things

I am passionate about working with awesome people who have a heart for harnessing the power of technology to have a positive impact on the mission of our Defense, Intelligence and Civilian agencies of the US Federal Government.


Continuous Delivery (CD) is the ability to get software into production — or into the hands of users — safely, quickly, and in a sustainable way. This engineering approach is critical to driving outcomes in software development organizations and in making sure they deliver software solutions rather than just promises. 

Learn how adopting CD has allowed DoD software development organizations across the Air Force, Army, and beyond to deliver real outcomes rather than more innovation theater.
