The Death of Continuous Integration

This presentation describes how ever-better Feature Branching tooling has harmed Continuous Integration, compares the cost vs. value of Feature Branching and Trunk Based Development, and explains why Continuous Delivery without Continuous Integration is asking for trouble.

However, many teams today are implicitly discarding Continuous Integration, due to ever-easier Feature Branching and an under-appreciation of Trunk Based Development. What are the consequences of this Continuous Isolation trend for agile development and Continuous Delivery?
