Large-Scale Continuous Integration Requires Code Modularity

Where large development teams and codebases are involved, code modularity is a key enabler for continuous delivery. At a high level this shouldn’t be too terribly surprising—it’s easier to move a larger number of smaller pieces through the deployment pipeline than it is to push a single bigger thing through.
