PagerDuty Community Update September 9, 2022

Hi everyone! Welcome to the PagerDuty Community Weekly Update! Here you’ll find what’s going on in PagerDuty land. We’re all over the place this week! Kat’s in Austin, Mandi’s in Charlotte, and Scott’s on vacation.

Cool Stuff

The PagerDuty Life Hacks challenge is now closed! We hope you got your life hack in. We’re looking forward to seeing all of the entries!

September is Global Preparedness Month. PagerDuty’s facilities staff uses PagerDuty to coordinate real-time response as part of our preparedness practice. Jason Flint shares more on our blog. Jason is an interesting dude. We had him on Twitch last year to talk about this use case.

Find us in person!

We have live in-person sessions coming up!
