General Platform










Release Engineering

  • tegras
    • tl;dr: still 0 in production
    • bear pulled an all-nighter to get staging reliably green. we then spent the rest of the day checking this in, rolling it out, and finally switching some tegras to run in production.
    • at this point we noticed/remembered that bear’s testing staging environment was running against thursday’s nightly, with old devicemanager code.
    • assuming we don’t regress anything further, we’ve solved 1 of 2 blockers to going live. we’ll be working on incorporating the devicemanager changes and testing against the new shared id today.
