series: Fridays Are For Learning

Fridays are for learning. A new year means the return of my aggressively non-search-engine-optimized posts on interesting things I’ve seen in the past week.

This week everyone is still recovering from the end of year period — nothing kills a work week like a Tuesday holiday — so I’m just giving you a quick video: Julia Evans from Stripe talking about high reliability infrastructure migrations at KubeCon North America 2018. It’s ostensibly Kubernetes-focused but I find a lot applicable to distributed systems in general, and let’s face it, we are all building distributed systems of one kind or another these days. You can read Julia’s own notes on the talk at her site (recommended as well). The configuration language mentioned is skycfg.
