$ Let’s focus on the human aspects of running infrastructure

People already involved

What's wrong?

Running operations is tough. Too many alerts and interrupted sleep significantly hurts team happiness and productivity.

A superhero culture exists and unreasonable expectations are placed on Ops. We want to highlight the importance of the health of teams running systems, not just the systems themselves. Find out more about the issues.

What can we do?

Our aim is to help ease communication, reduce fatigue and eliminate stress.

We're encouraging the discussion and sharing of ideas and best practices around how to look after the team who look after your systems. Read more about HumanOps.
