Great, really nice! I like. <3

I wonder if it makes sense to sneak in the aspect of canary servers. Whenever I talk to other devs about our deployment processes they are most amazed by that concept.

So succinct!  Great read.  

It reads like the Inverted pyramid[1]:
  • The gist
  • Important details
  • The hairy details that you couldn't understand without the gist and important details

Last week, I spoke to a few of my Wikimedia Foundation colleagues about how we deploy code—I completely botched it.

At the end of the conversation, I was pretty sure I'd only succeeded  in making a complex process more opaque. I decided to write a blog to redeem myself: How We Deploy Code

My goal was to write a very high-level overview of the process we use to deploy code to Wikimedia production.

Hopefully, this is helpful.
