PagerDuty Community Update, September 15 2023

🥑🇵🇹 Avocados United… Lisbon edition!

👋 Xenda here, writing my first weekly update, yay! I'm happy to share that after joining PagerDuty a month ago, Dev Advocate Tiago and I had the amazing opportunity to meet Kat, Mandi and Tara in person during the Lisbon stop of their "Euro tour." Tara arrived in Lisbon shortly after giving the talk Resilience: Building a burnout-resistant life in developer relationships at DevRelCon London and was super excited in sharing with the team all interesting topics from the conference. Kat and Mandi left Lisbon straight to SREday stage in London, for the Mastering Incident Communications (Kat) and Futuristic Luxury Incident Response (Mandi) presentations.

Busy-cados! Besides aligning our values as a team and learning how to bake delicious pasteis de nata (portuguese custard tarts 😋) we committed to walking (a lot!) through the streets of Lisbon, while contributing to #step-tember, a global PagerDuty challenge that gives an opportunity for PD folks across the globe to fundraise, get active and connect!

✍️ Ace Service Ownership like a tennis champion (wait, what?)

What does tennis have to do with Service Ownership? As strange as it may sound, head to PagerDuty blog and learn how DevOps can learn from tennis when it comes to building healthy and resilient services. Read here 👈
