I watched with great interest the recent webinar on delivery patterns.
I fail to see is how the DEV stage can be part of the delivery pattern. Developers will do multiple commits/builds before deciding to include the application in a release. They need to deploy each commit into DEV in order to run tests against it. I currently use a master release template to play the role of a delivery pattern. But my master release only includes stages QA and above for this reason.
How do you give developers the ability to commit/deploy multiple times to a DEV environment and still include the DEV stage in the delivery pattern?
