Talk Description

Do you encounter fear pressing that deploy button? Are you worried that once you deploy to live you’ll be monitoring the servers, waiting for calls and tucking yourself into your sleeping bag at work for a late night? Sometimes deploying to live causes things to go bang and you’ll wonder, what the hell has happened? Have you asked yourself, how closely does your test environment actually match live and do you know the differences? Gwen will be going through some common problems with test environments and how to keep them in a state so that you have more confidence to deploy code. She will touch on topics such as performance, monitoring, configuration and rollbacks with a few hairy experiences related to what happens when these aren’t considered. A release should be a reason to go to the pub and have a beer to celebrate a successful deployment instead of staying back and firefighting.
