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. 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.

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.

Discovering, responding to, and resolving incidents is a complex endeavor. Read this narrative to learn how you can do it quickly and effectively by connecting AppDynamics, Moogsoft and xMatters to create a monitoring toolchain.
