Summary note
"Vasanth Asokan offers a study of the evolution and anatomy of production testing at scale at Netflix, explaining why there was a desire to test in production, what Netflix did to try to keep testing out of production, and where testing belongs, anyway. Along the way, Vasanth shares a few case studies to demonstrate both the benefits and the less tangible diffused impacts of concentrated, uncoordinated testing against customer-facing infrastructure. Vasanth also looks at other forms of testing, such as load, failure, and simulation testing, and explains the role they play in ensuring a fully functioning customer experience. Join in to learn whether the benefits outweigh the risks of executing untested code in production or whether it's better to focus on creating a production mirror. If you run large-scale distributed systems, this talk will better inform your overall testing strategy, illustrate specific techniques that work at scale, and provide trade-offs to consider."--Resource description page.
