Happy Monday, Ops Community 🌈
Hope everyone had a good weekend and has been starting the week in style. What does this week have in store for you? (And how did you get through last week?)
Help out your fellow Ops Community members
We've had two requests come in from the community last week, in case anyone is able to assist:
- @aaron_fowler_d1d9e565e853 from TruStacks is seeking React devs to test their workflow - if you or anyone else you know can help out Aaron and the TruStacks team, they'd love to hear from you.
- @nvsblmike asked a question about running Cloudformation templates
Feel free to earburn Aaron or Alese if you can help, or jump right into their questions and respond directly.
Some of my highlights from last week were:
- Request Metrics shared some top advice on Explaining Performance to Non-Technical Stakeholders
- @techielass started the 14 Days of Git series - that may or may not have got in the way of some yard work
- @danielepolencic published their 2nd #kubernetes post in 2 weeks since joining the community - welcome, Daniel!
I hope @sparklingrobots doesn't mind me sharing this, but it was 🔥 and I really want as many people to watch it as possible (I highly recommend the entire DDI channel but especially Tara's talk from Friday (very late AM in my timezone):

Doing a lab on Systems Manager/Patch Manager. Hoping to publish an article on that
Looking forward to that, @gurrlal!
We'd love to learn more about the person behind that post, too - if you have a second to introduce yourself in the Welcome Thread!
@ellativity thank you for sharing it!! I'm so glad you liked the talk and that it resonated. It was definitely a bit of a risk and I think it paid off.
This week I'm diving into the PagerDuty community strategy -- trying to see where we are best able to help our community & where we are spinning our wheels. Open to any recommendations or thoughts from this fantastic community on what really works. :D
Honestly, it was one of the most insightful and practical talks I've attended this conference season.
I'm always partial to content that openly centers people's lived experience (of the workplace or any place), and your talk checked that box repeatedly. Thanks so much for taking the risk to advocate for diverse perspectives and narratives in engineering and beyond - we all need more of these conversations in our lives!
publishing articles about o11y :)
Keep 'em coming, @alvaradodaniel3 - you're doing great!
