Testing Configs in Production

At our Test in Production Meetup in September we heard from TR Jordan from Slack. He spoke about how his team from Turbine Labs tests configs in production. “I spend my days rolling out Envoy in larger environments, and that's mostly an exercise in writing a ton of config. Rolling it out to a huge number of servers…there's some hard-learned lessons there, we ended up in a lot of conversations about how to safely roll out configuration, and how to really understand the behavior of this and build confidence in configuration files before going to production.” Watch Jordan’s talk to learn more about how his team tries to get configs as code, phases rollouts to prevent downtime, and moves what they can into machine-driven states so they can focus on important config changes.
