Experience level: 
Beginner
Duration: 
50 minutes conference
Companies solve the problems of deployment, continuous integration and server provisioning with various tools under the banner of DevOps. In this talk I will explore how we do this at GitHub without anything labelled “DevOps”, just clear communication channels and a friendly robot named Hubot (http://hubot.github.com/). MySQL is the database of choice at GitHub and I will explain how we use it to power the worlds largest repository hosting platform. I will also share the improvements we have made to our MySQL tier and how we continually iterate on development.
