We are broadening our horizons in our December meetup as we talk about Release Engineering. Join us at this meetup to learn how to perfect your release process from Dinah McNutt, Release Engineer at Google, as she distills the truths that she's found in her 20 years of building commercial software.

For each truth, she will provide reasons and examples that support the truth. Some of the commandments are controversial, but she will include examples of where these commandments do not apply. This talk will surely help you consider different approaches to reach better solutions.

Thank you New Relic for hosting us!
