Redbubble is hosting a series of events where the Melbourne Tech Community can come together and discuss some thought-provoking ideas, led by both our own team and members of the community that inspire us. So come in, share a drink and lets talk tech!
On March 18, Redbubble’s Michael Milewski will be presenting “Experiences Test-Driving Infrastructure”
With no internal ops team, an ever-growing team of new Redbubble recruits and a legacy infrastructure that was only documented by the bare metal server it is running on, the aim was to fail over the whole Redbubble website to a brand new environment in the cloud. This was done using legacy code techniques such as writing unit tests around every part of the existing infrastructure, building out functionality in the new cloud infrastructure bit by bit using infrastructure as code tools and learning from breaking every part of the app in the process. This is a set of war stories on using the RSpec extension ServerSpec, bringing developers up to speed with Ops 101 server configuration, and applying soft skills to build an effective team, some could say the best team in the world….
