Hiya @JayCano! I added @TThoabala to the training on 2021-07-22. @TThoabala let me know if you DIDN'T get the invite.

@ArielGlenn or @Ladsgroup – I haven't checked in on how EU training has been progressing in a bit (sorry) does the 22nd work for 1 or all of you :) ?

We haven't had a single person show up for the EU slot although I am there
dutifully every week. Sadness!

The 22 is fine for me! Amir?

Did this deployment training happen?

thcipriani claimed this task.

Yes it did.

Great! Thank you @TThoabala for attending!

Training completed!

I have a list of the next steps to take:

  • Attend MORE train trainings
    • The goal is for you to feel comfortable deploying to production
  • Attend a train log triage meeting
    • This is the meeting where we dig through our logstash to find problems caused by deployments
  • Improve any of the Training docs
    • Write the docs you wish you'd read

Get creds to ship!

Once you feel comfortable with the deployment process, get the necessary credentials to deploy your own code.

  • Get shell and deploy access in production to do deployments, see
  • Gain access to merge changes in wmf deploy branches by being added to the wmf-deployments gerrit group
    • (I can add you if you IRC/Slack me)
  • Join the operations mailing list (
    • This is because announcements that could impact how and/or when to deploy things are primarily sent there.

Hopefully this is a helpful!

I didn't acrtually give this training because my brain was fried from collab sessions + offsite! After being so excited to do it too... So, giving credit to the person who stepped up.
