Lessons We Learned Developing Infrastructure Software at Box

Wednesday 1:50PM-2:40PM

@ Room M2

MySQL / MariaDBMongoDBOpen Source Databases

50 minutes conference


Business / Case Studies

As any modern DBA we lean more towards development daily activities. We write more software and do less routine tasks.

Along the way to development workflow full automation we faced many problems. The session covers solutions of those:

* Git flow adaptation for highly restrictive compliance requirements;
* Unit testing. What to mock and how;
* Surviving dependencies hell;
* Packaging Python code.
