The Etsy DevTools team was created to foster collaboration between engineering and operations and also between different teams within engineering. We provide the tools to make it easy for everyone to deploy, reaching from deployment tools to developer VMs and CI infrastructure automation. Our main concern is to make processes fast and simple to enable developers to do their work with maximum happiness.
The talk will be about what are the main concerns of the DevTools team and its place between Engineering and Operations. I will give examples of how processes were improved and how we introduced tools which make it simple and safe to give developers access to production servers and data without causing ops headaches.
Daniel Schauenberg is a software engineer at Etsy's DevTools team. He spends his days automating infrastructure with Chef, making sure everybody can deploy and removing friction in processes where possible.
