Go or No-Go: Operability and Contingency Planning (Surge)

Last month I had the honor of speaking at the Surge Conference in Baltimore, put together by OmniTI.

It was a most excellent conference, and the expertise levels were ridiculously high. I count myself lucky to be considered the same league as the rest of the presenters. I did give a Keynote talk, and I haven’t uploaded those slides yet. The talk I gave on the second day of the conference was about how we plan for feature launches at Etsy, which follows a similar pattern we had at Flickr.

So, here are the slides for that talk:

I like making things go! At the moment, I'm SVP of Infrastructure and Operations at Etsy, and I'm currently pursuing a Master's degree in Human Factors and Systems Safety at Lund University.
