Developing and operating Python projects in large organizations and at high scale presents unique challenges, not just in the bits and bytes of the code, but also in the full lifecycle of the service running in a scaled production network.

Abstract

Developing and operating Python projects in large organizations and at high scale presents unique challenges, not just in the bits and bytes of the code, but also in the full lifecycle of the service running in a scaled production network. This talk will focus on how the Security Production Engineering team manages Facebook’s public key infrastructure (PKI) using a python service. This challenge includes building and testing the code in our development environment, creating and rolling out the build at scale, collaborating with other teams, and maintaining the health of the service through alerting and loggers.
