Nick Craver – Stack Overflow: How We Do Deployment – 2016 Edition

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/03/18

It sounds long ago, but this post is still so relevant for anyone not yet bringing operations and development close together. And for those who did:

  • automate the heck out of everything
  • make lots of mistakes as early as possible so you can fix them before the hit any of your production sites

[WayBackNick Craver – Stack Overflow: How We Do Deployment – 2016 Edition

The relevance is why Nick repeated it in 2018 in a response to a @ThePracticalDev discussion right after the first Falcon Heavy deployment, and why I repeat it now.

Swap and Memory Pressure: How Developers think to how Operations people think – The Isoblog.

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/02/21

Still a very insightful read: [WayBack] Swap and Memory Pressure: How Developers think to how Operations people think – The Isoblog.

I totally agree with the view Kristian Köhntopp presents which I usually call “fail early, fail hard, fail clearly”.

Incidents, fixes, and the day after – Booking.com Infrastructure – Medium

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/11/11

In larger teams, to handle Incidents, fixes, and the day after – Booking.com Infrastructure – Medium [WayBack] you escalate it through a set of carefully chosen phases.

  1. Starting the escalation
  2. Gathering the firefighters
  3. Going back to business
  4. Closing the escalation
  5. Working towards the permanent solution
  6. Postmortem retrospective

Friday Deploys, and other harmful BOFH memes – The Isoblog.

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/06/05

The answer to the meme on the right:

If you are having problems deploying on a Friday, you will have them at any time of the week. Your processes are broken.

via: [WayBack] Friday Deploys and other harmful BOFH memes – they need to die in a fire… – Kristian Köhntopp – Google+

Kristian argues that people finding the meme funny should get fired.

I still find it funny. Both in a way that I’m surprised so many BOFH are still there, as well as being happy that on many occasions I’ve helped making this a thing of the past or at least make organisations aware of the deployment risks and how to cope with them.

Do I need to change? Definitely: life is all about learning new things every day and change because of that.

Do I need go get out of a job or a new job? Likely at some point because life is all about change. Hopefully I’ve learned enough by then to find another gig where – in addition to applying my tech skills – I can spread awareness and knowledge. And learn new things. Did I tell about life is all about learning?
