PagerDuty Community Weekly Update, December 9, 2022

Hi everyone! Welcome to the PagerDuty Community Weekly Update! This is the last full week with everyone on our team “in the office”!

Good News

PagerDuty was nominated for Best End-to-End DevOps Tool/Service in the DevOps Dozen 2022 Awards.

Voting is now open! Lots of tough competition here–we’d be honored to have your vote for PagerDuty.

Cool Stuff

Mandi is continuing her adventures with the PagerDuty API and Slack. This week, she’s looking at posting current on call engineers to a Slack channel. You can follow along in Part 1 and Part 2

Scott built a little CLI utility for creating new Terraform projects with the PagerDuty provider defined. Have a look and let us know what you think! The project is called pdtf.

Seasons Freezings

The season of code freezes are upon us, which means teams are locked out of prod and have time to explore new ideas and functionality - like automation.

Follow along for the rest of the month on the Rundeck Twitter account as we share helpful automation content and interesting things you can consider while your code is frozen.

Find us in person!

Where in the world is PagerDuty DevRel? It’s almost the end of the year, so things are slowing down.

  • On the 13th and 14th, Mandi and the EMEA PagerDuty folks will be at DevOpsDays Tel Aviv! Registration is open now, but only for Day 2. Good thing that's when Mandi's session is ;)!
  • In January, we’ll be at CodeMash in Sandusky, Ohio Jan 11-13th! Scott will have a talk, Reduce System Fragility with Terraform and PagerDuty will have a booth!

We hope to see you! Say hi, we might have PagerDuty stickers. :D

We’re also virtual!

We’ll be back with more events in the new year!

On the Podcast

This week we have an episode about Developer Communities with Mary Thengvall and Julie Gunderson. Subscribe to Page it to the Limit so you never miss an episode.

Have a suggestion for a guest we should have on? Let us know! We’re looking for guests for Q1 2023 to record in November and December. That could be YOU!

We’re looking for a modern NOC story if you have some experience there and would like to share!
