Transcript

  • 1. ThoughtWorks StrongFoundations From Dev To Production Sam Newman Chris Read 2009 Away Day
  • 2. ThoughtWorks StrongFoundations Introduction • Whatʼs the point of coding? • Weʼre not done until itʼs running in production • Thereʼs more to an application than the “business stories” • Thereʼs more to test than application functionality
  • 3. ThoughtWorks StrongFoundations Build • Build is NOT the same thing as deployment • The build is everyoneʼs responsibility • The goal is for a checkout and build • Itʼs all about repeatability • Version control tools where possible – avoid requiring things that need to be installed to perform builds
  • 4. ThoughtWorks StrongFoundations Built Artifacts • Make it simple to tie running code or built artifacts back to the code that created them • Keep binary artifacts and configuration separate • Build an artifact once, and deploy it to all the environments you care about
  • 5. ThoughtWorks StrongFoundations Configuration • Default to production configuration • Validate your config - fail fast if wrong • Clearly identify which properties should be overriden between environments • Make it east to view the config of a running system – Identify source of properties (defaulted or overriden)
  • 6. ThoughtWorks StrongFoundations Configuration Example
  • 7. ThoughtWorks StrongFoundations Deployment • Code is useless until it is running where it should be • Use the same deployment mechanism in dev as in prod • Work with ops to define your deployment process • Donʼt think you have to use the build tool to do deployment
  • 8. ThoughtWorks StrongFoundations Environments Ease Of Use Dev QA Prod More Production Like
  • 9. ThoughtWorks StrongFoundations Logging • Default to the quietist level • Anything other than debug or trace logging should be considered a UI • Logging is a different type of configuration to normal application configuration • Seriously consider the need to change logging configuration on a running system without a restart
  • 10. ThoughtWorks StrongFoundations Monitoring • Understand the tools already being used to monitor systems and work out how to expose your data to these systems • Talk to ops about the kinds of things that need monitoring • Always think: if you get a 2am call about something not working in the system, what do you need to know?
  • 11. ThoughtWorks StrongFoundations Performance • Automate performance runs as soon as you can, if not sooner • An isolated environment completely under your control is essential • Testing with non-performance load via exploratory testing can yield useful information • Compare like with like – itʼs all about the deltas
