PagerDuty Community Update, September 29 2023

👩‍💻 People Team’s HackWeek

HackWeeks aren’t just for your Engineering teams! PagerDuty’s People Team (our HR) held an AI-focused HackWeek to help the team think out of the box. Our Chief People Officer Joe Militello posted about the journey from 0 to HackWeek in 60 days on the PagerDuty blog.

His tips might help you run your own HackWeek!
