PagerDuty Community Update, August 4 2023

PagerDuty on PagerDuty

Last week, Mandi was interviewed for our blog alongside Senior Engineering Manager Stevenson Jean-Pierre to reflect on ten years of PagerDuty’s practice of Failure Fridays, where our teams intentionally inject failure into our systems in the name of improved reliability and continuous learning. Check out the blog post for notes on what we’ve learned over the years and tips on how to get started.
For even more, you can watch the accompanying Twitch stream from last week’s How-To Happy Hour with Mandi, Stevenson, and Staff SRE Rich Lafferty!
