Development, Deployment & Collaboration at Etsy
presented at QCon London 2014 on Mar 5, 2014


At Etsy about 150 engineers deploy a single monolithic application more than 60 times a day. This process of deploying small changesets continuously enables us to build up and release robust features and detect and fix bugs extremely fast. All while serving over a billion page views per month. Developing and deploying at such a high velocity however only works because product developers and designers, infrastructure and operations engineers and the security team work closely together. We have an extremely open culture of sharing (inside and outside the company) and make sure we run into as few surprises as possible by bringing everybody on the same page about changes.
