    @jezhumble deploy and release its product or service on demand,

    independently of other services the product or service depends upon? make large-scale changes to the design of its system without the permission of somebody outside the team or depending on other teams? complete its work without needing fine-grained communication and coordination with people outside the team? perform deployments during normal business hours with negligible downtime? do most of its testing on demand, without requiring an integrated test environment? architectural outcomes: can my team…

    @jezhumble rules of strangler • start by delivering new functionality—at

    least at first • don’t rewrite existing functionality except to simplify • deliver something fast • design for testability and deployability • architect the new software to run on a paas

    @jezhumble disaster recovery testing “For DiRT-style events to be successful,

    an organization first needs to accept system and process failures as a means of learning… We design tests that require engineers from several groups who might not normally work together to interact with each other. That way, should a real large-scale disaster ever strike, these people will already have strong working relationships” Kripa Krishnan | http://queue.acm.org/detail.cfm?id=2371297 —Kripa Krishnan, Director, Cloud Operations, Google
