Firefighting and DevOps - The Platypus Incident
Aug 05, 2020 Season 1 Episode 3
New Relic Developer Relations

This week we were joined by Bobby Tables of Firehydrant.io, world-renowned purveyor of artisanal handcrafted incident response services that are in fact the opposite of that; perfectly replicable and entirely automated.

Bobby talks us through some of the motivation behind the path he and his co-founders walked (sprinted?) when starting their company and the market circumstances that have created demand for automated incident response.

We also touch on the distinction between DevOps and SRE, the pros and cons of microservices and one particularly memorable incident involving a platypus and a fire hydrant.
