Building resilience in our organizations, our teams, and ourselves at DevOpsDays Chicago 2016
Posted on October 18, 2016
Really excited to get to speak at DevOpsDays Chicago again. It’s an amazing community that values collaboration and communication as much as I do. The whole team behind DevOpsDays Chicago and DevOpsDays in general are great people.
This was my first Ignite talk and I found it super stressful. I think I’m better when I can ramble and adapt to the audience. 🙂
We talk about redundancy and security when it comes to our infrastructure and applications, but we rarely think about creating those same things in our teams and ourselves.
From the start-up financial roller coaster to a teammate’s marriage (or divorce) to our own personal issues, success, scaling, and our future depend on complex and often chaotic factors.
In order to succeed, we need to create resilience, not just in our technology, but also in our organizations, our teams, and ourselves.
