30 Days of DevOps Day 22: Explore Outages

30 Days of DevOps Day 22 asks us to:

Explore outages that your team has experienced. What could be done to reduce the risk of these outages being repeated?

If this is something you don’t have access to, maybe you could ask others in the community? Or explore some well-documented outages and investigate what could have been done to prevent them.

@ian.emery had 2 great examples on Twitter

Some interesting lessons from @alexanderontest too (thread)

Elizabeth shares an outage demonstrating that not all outages are something we can control
