Beta Tier and Testing

We push major code changes weekly on Tuesday evenings (Pacific Standard Time), and hotfixes throughout the week.

Every week, usually on Sunday evenings, we stage our weekly push, which happens on Tuesday evenings, on the beta tier. This provides ourselves 48 hours to test and find bugs before the build hits production. After Tuesday, while the beta tier is continuously updated with hotfix patches which are queued up for the daily hotfix release, the production tier is updated with the hotfix push in the evenings, Pacific Standard Time.
