Objective

Learning about optimizing everyone’s productivity and happiness while building products at scale, through software tooling and culture.

Description

At Etsy our approach to development is to make small, incremental, continuous changes to the site. Deploying code to production anywhere between 20 to 40 times a day requires not only technical tooling, but also a culture that allows for and encourages innovation, confidence backed by actual data and comprehensive tests, and blameless post-mortems that allow for a feedback loop we can learn from and improve.

Learn about the tools we have, and how we foster an environment where we make this possible.

      Zainab, I intend for it to be similar based on feedback I received at the time.
