Summary

James Wen tells the story of how Spotify’s infrastructure evolved from teams owning and doting on groups of long-running servers to a distinctive separation of business code and value from the underlying machines all of Spotify's services actually run on. He examines how this evolution also changed the way that Spotify developers write code and the vast increase in iteration and shipping speed.
