The Secret to Safe Continuous Deployment: Perceptual Diffs

Hi everyone! I know it's been FOR-EVER since we've had a meetup, but I'm pleased to say that we've got a good one coming up :-)

Join us March 26 for a talk from Brett Slatkin, engineering lead of Google Consumer Surveys, as he shares with us Google's experience this past year with Continuous Delivery.

We'll be meeting at 6:30 (venue to be announced soon) with the talk happening at 7pm. See you then!


On the Google Consumer Surveys team, 8 minutes after you commit code it's live in production. This talk will cover our experiences doing this for a year, what's gone wrong, and how we made it safe using website screenshots and visual diffs between each release. We'll go over the software that makes it work, how you can implement the same process, and the positive effects it has on a team.


Brett Slatkin is the engineering lead of Google Consumer Surveys. He formerly worked on App Engine and is the co-creator of the PubSubHubbub protocol.

    I really liked the deep dive on how automated (or mechanically assisted) testing is a key element in successfully utilizing continuous delivery.

    For sure if it's @ GOOG @ MtV, maybe if it's @ SF somewhere.
