Early on in the "cloud" era, Werner Vogels offered his famous quote "You Build It, You Run It". With DevOps this has become a mantra for shared responsibility between developers and operations. Operations learned how to process infrastructure as code and participate early in the supply chain of a service's life cycle. Developers learned that they had responsibilities to enable and in many cases operationalize their service. Now there is a new movement to include and collaborate in a similar...

A major part of our developer lives depends on working safely with production - yet few organizations today are designing their production environment to enable high quality, end-to-end verification of the code we write and deploy. In this talk, we build on the foundation of great microservice architectures to include first class design for testability as a critical technique for high velocity, high quality teams. In particular, we’ll explore what it’s like to...

Microservices can be a great way to work: the services are simple, you can use the right technology for the job, and deployments become smaller and less risky. Unfortunately, other things become more complex. You probably took some time to design a deployment pipeline and set up self-service provisioning, for example. But did the rest of your thinking about what “done” means catch up? Are you still setting up alerts, run books, and monitoring for each...

Tech lead at LinkedIn Development Tools - Founder of Mockito - Core eng of Gradle 1.x/2.x

LinkedIn and Mockito are two different use cases of implementing continuous delivery at scale. Yet the challenges, benefits and impact on the engineering culture are very similar.

In 2015, LinkedIn’s flagship application adopted a continuous delivery model we called 3x3: deploy to production 3 times a day, with a 3 hour maximum time from commit to production. At LinkedIn scale - hundreds of engineers building products for 500M...

As an industry, we focus on designing microservices for availability. However, we don’t tend to speak about enabling these same services for resiliency testing. In a perfect world, you wouldn’t need resiliency testing, but that’s not the reality we are currently facing. This talk covers designing microservices for enabling resiliency testing and the moving parts you need to consider when designing them from the get go, and along their lifetime. Yes, the services...
