Pro Website Development and Operations gives you the experience you need to create and operate a large-scale production website. Large-scale websites have their own unique set of problems regarding their design―problems that can get worse when agile methodologies are adopted for rapid results. Managing large-scale websites, deploying applications, and ensuring they are performing well often requires a full scale team involving the development and operations sides of the company―two departments that don't always see eye to eye.

When departments struggle with each other, it adds unnecessary complexity to the work, and that result shows in the customer experience. Pro Website Development and Operations shows you how to streamline the work of web development and operations - incorporating the latest insights and methodologies of DevOps - so that your large-scale website is up and running quickly, with little friction and extreme efficiency between divisions.

This book provides critical knowledge for any developer engaged in delivering the business and software engineering goals required to create and operate a large-scale production website. It addresses how developers can collaborate effectively with business and engineering teams to ensure applications are smoothly transitioned from product inception to implementation, and are properly deployed and managed. 

Pro Website Development and Operations provides unique insights into how systems, code, and process can all work together to make large-scale website development and operations ultra-efficient.

intersect, and then nurture those relationships and skills. For example, engineers can create dashboards that empower business users, and business users can include engineers in organizational and product planning. The success of an endeavor, indeed of the entire company, is much more likely in an environment that promotes real interaction among all teams. 25 Chapter 3 Web Testing Practices Testing a web application requires not only testing the site itself, but also looking at the various

is currently located in the software development life cycle. In early development stages, you may want to test individual parts of the stack directly, in order to get a better understanding of how each individual component performs. This is the case because in a web application, many layers of the web stack play into the actual serving of a page or a result to an end user. The process typically includes the following layers: • The front end, where HTML, CSS, and JavaScript are rendered in the

There are many different types of load tests, but they primarily fall into two categories: synthetic load tests and distributed load tests. A synthetic load test typically involves a server or cluster of servers in a single datacenter or geographic location, and they are blasted at the same time to see how the website or application performs under stress. In a distributed load test, there are multiple servers with different browser configurations distributed throughout a nation or the world, and

heartache during launch time. The act of stress testing can cause problems with underlying web applications and data stores to surface, or they may fail entirely. Open source tools like Logstash allow web developers and operations engineers to take a look at the errors and correlate error messages to events such as a spike in page-response time. Why is this so critical? When an established company launches a new product, feature, website, or application, the whole world is usually watching. In

supporting a mobile application need to achieve speeds on par with a desktop experience while overcoming the latency associated with wireless data networks1. Here are some suggestions: • Don’t overload your mobile application with large images or huge uncompressed audio or video animations. Users might like them, but not at the expense of a responsive experience. • Use a native application if you have many static assets, such as images and audio files or other non-streaming media.
