During the winter holidays and shopping season, many companies institute a code freeze — halting all production deployments. Although the efficacy of code freezes is hotly debated, they are a reality for many technologists. This can be confusing.

Explore these questions and more with our expert panel:
- If there are no production deployments, what should development teams be doing during a code freeze?
- Is the practice of code freeze having the desired effect, i.e. stable performance, and decreased incidents?
- If not, what are better approaches for evolving towards those goals?
If you’re facing a possible code freeze, be sure to attend this special session on November 17th!
