Deployinator: How Etsy removed
the pain and fear from deploying code
As Etsy grew in traffic and engineering resources, fear crept into the
deployment process. At one point, code was only being deployed once every
2 weeks; with planned outages! As of March 2010, Etsy is deploying to
production up to 40 times a day with almost 70 engineers - all of whom can
"push the button". How did we get here? How do we manage it? Are we nuts??
We will be covering:
* Deployinator - our internal deployment application
* Communication and coordination
* How monitoring and dashboards enable this velocity
* Measure Anything, Measure Everything
* Quantum of Deployment
* Tracking Every Release
About John Goulah:
John Goulah has been working in New York City over the last several years
for a number of web sites in both technical and management roles, as well
as the co-founder of several startups. Having spent much of his youth
touring in rock bands and hacking from the road, he is no stranger to
crowds, be it a smoke filled room or presenting to the company board. He
strives for non mundane tasks and has automated himself out of his last few
endeavors, which has landed him in his current role as an Engineer at Etsy,
the leading marketplace for handmade goods.
About Erik Kastner:
Erik Kastner has given presentations large and small, from the
international Rails conference to informal company brown-bags. He strives
to find the laziest way to get things done - even if it ends up being a lot
more work. Automation, exploration and the simple joy of building underpin
just about everything he does. Other than a couple of strange and
dream-filled years in San Francisco, Erik has lived in New Jersey his whole
life. He works at Etsy in Brooklyn hand-crafting code, arts and tools.
Please note that this meeting will be held at IBM, 590 Madison Ave,
12th floor, corner of 57th Street, and not at Google. This is
the building with the IBM logo on the front of the building.
Swag (Give Away):

but we are also evaluating other options for the future and welcome
Coding Workshops/Hacking Society:
This is a group of people that wants to learn about and work on coding
in Python, Smalltalk, Ruby, C++, LaTeX, and other languages, and hack on code.
There will also be help given for those who wish to install Linux for the
