DevOps Patterns and Antipatterns for Continuous Software Updates
So, you want to update the software for your user, be it the nodes in your K8s cluster, a browser on the user's desktop, an app in the user's smartphone, or even a user's car. What can possibly go wrong?
In this talk, we'll analyze real-world software update failures and how multiple DevOps patterns that fit various scenarios could have saved the developers. Manually ensuring that everything works before sending an update and expecting the user to do acceptance tests before they update is most definitely not on the list of such patterns.
Join us for some awesome and scary continuous update horror stories and some obvious (and some not so obvious) proven ideas for improvement and best practices you can start following tomorrow.
