Twitter Web App : is back! 🎉

Thanks to hosts Molly Struve 🦄 & Ben Halpern for hosting & to our guests on this episode: Nick Stenning & @lauramdmaguire.

We’re kicking season 6 off right with a discussion about the human factors involved in engineering.…

TweetDeck : Heads-up to all those all white all male tech teams out there: I'm seeing more and more candidates (and mostly, not minorities) asking to only be in a diverse team as they're bored of being on teams with the same backgrounds and opinions. [1/x]

Twitter for iPhone : 2) it is good to bake ongoing not-product work into your planning. Too many teams have made the shift towards putting devs on call without allocating the time needed for owning, understanding, maintaining, and improving the services they own.

Operations isn't free.

Twitter Web App : your reminder that on call engineers should not also be expected to make progress on product work.

this is your time to improve the system. extend your deploy tooling. fix the things that drive you nuts but never find their way into the product roadmap.

Twitter Web App : A lot of folks have been saying, for a long time, that the Kube developer experience isn't good enough. Some companies have been reinventing Heroku and Cloud Foundry in internal tooling... but none of them have broken through yet and become mainstream.
Taming complexity is hard.

Twitter Web App : We’ve just added built-in citation support to GitHub so researchers and scientists can more easily receive acknowledgments for their contributions to software.

Just push a CITATION.cff file and we’ll add a handy widget to the repo sidebar for you.

Enjoy! 🎉

Twitter for Android : You don't need more monitoring, alarms, and alerting. The emphasis should counterintuitively be on *less* of this – and deeper investment into tying those capabilities to meaningful measures around customer impact. That's SRE.

Twitter Web App : 63 studies: women who assert their ideas, make direct requests, and advocate for themselves are liked less.

They're also less likely to get hired—and it hasn't improved over time.

It's 2021. When will we stop punishing dominant women for violating outdated gender stereotypes?
