Facebook's large user base has no idea the website is changing under their feet. This talk will focus on our operational and release processes that are used at one of the largest websites. I'll be walking through a typical change from inception to the final deployment into production.

Girish has been with Facebook since early 2008 working the on Technical Operations and Infrastructure teams. Having been the only release tools engineer for over two years where the site grew over 10x, Girish has had to use every trick in the book to keep up with the growth of infrastructure as well as number of developers. Today, Girish works out of Facebook's London engineering office and leads the tools team.
