Facebook’s large user base has no idea the website is changing under their feet. This talk will focus our operational and release process that is very unique to such a large websites. I’ll be walking through a typical change from inception to the final deployment into production. We use a combination of tools and culture to help us scale this process to over a thousand engineers and tens of thousands of servers with a very small team of release engineers.
