How can we engineer velocity by weaving together tooling and culture with software
development to expose and elevate highly effective practices? This talk describes various
components of Netflix’s continuous delivery platform -- much of which is available in open
source. I’ll show how these pieces fit together and allow us to build scaffolding so that we’re comfortable with software developers making the decision to push the button for prod deployment -- and helps them to recover if necessary. As a result, we can run fast, trusting our tooling and our culture. I’ll also describe how we test our resiliency through simulating failure, unleashing the monkeys (Simian Army) on our production environment. Because if you’re afraid of cute little monkeys, imagine how afraid you’ll be of a production environment that offers those same risks but doesn’t give you an opportunity to test your response to those dangers.
Throughout this talk, I hope that you will challenge yourself to consider how your company can "shift the curve" through tooling and to achieve a high velocity environment without negatively impacting reliability.
