Story Time: I broke the website


I caught the Portuguese Death Sniffles and had to delay my educational content for this week, but rest assured I have your back for devops-related content. So rather than making memes about Terraform or YAML, it’s story time.

I broke prod once or 20 times, and for most of those it was absolutely avoidable. This is one of those times. I think this story is from 2007 or so, and goes over how not being detail oriented in planning, monitoring, and validating suck.
