Airlines have always had an emphasis on new technology. Over the years, airlines have needed to develop more and more software. Digital transformation is causing every large company to adopt the tools and practices of software companies, and that includes Delta Airlines.

Delta Airlines has existed for more than 90 years. Over that period of time, the company has developed new systems in every generation of software, from the days of mainframe computers to a modern Java-based backend. When the DevOps movement started to take shape, Delta Airlines started to take a more focused approach on continuous integration, version control, and an organizational structure that removed silos between teams.

Jasmine James is a manager at Delta Airlines where she focuses on improving the software practices of the company. She joins the show to talk through the process of changing the developer culture within Delta, as well as what it is like to build software for an airline. Jasmine is speaking at GitLab Commit in Brooklyn on September 17, 2019, and GitLab is a sponsor of Software Engineering Daily, so if you are thinking about attending GitLab Commit, you can go to and enter code COMMITSED to save 30% on your ticket, while also supporting Software Engineering Daily.
