What’s Planned for 2015? A DevOps Interview Series By Jason Hand I’m not one for lofty or overly-ambitious New Year’s resolutions, but I do feel that the beginning of the year is an excellent time to set  goals and make some changes in the name of continuous improvement. A personal goal I set for myself this year was to do better about staying in touch with friends and family. Often times I feel like I rely on social media to fill me in on what everyone who is important to me is up to.

Why the Entire Incident Lifecycle Matters By @VictorOps | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

Being on-call is more than just scheduling and alerting. It’s a matter of following an incident through from the moment of receiving the alert to solving the problem and conducting a post-mortem. In order to help you better visualize it, we’ve created this graphic that breaks the incident lifecycle into six distinct parts and shows much each part makes up of the whole… As you can see, getting alerted to the problem is really just the tip of the iceberg. There are lots of tools that alert you to a problem but not many that stick with you through the firefight, providing a way to ... (more)

ChefConf 2015 Wrap-up By @VictorOps | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

By Jason Hand Community is an area of great interest to me. As the evangelist for VictorOps, I’m tapped with many challenges and responsibilities. Not only do I try to provide useful guidance and feedback regarding VictorOps and DevOps best practices, but also bring together customers and partners with shared interest and excitement for what we are building to make on-call suck less. If there is a group in which one could model how to build a great community after, it’s Chef and this year’s ChefConf is a testament to that. Taking place in the Santa Clara Convention Center, Chef... (more)
