When Bastions Fall

This is definitely the case for many IT Operations workers, but on the other hand, hasn’t the developer (the real creative of the department) been handed more autonomy? No longer chained to 200-page requirement specs drawn up in advance by business analysts, and encouraged instead to move fast and reflexively.

I think for example of Google’s “error budget” concept which enables Dev teams to do stuff beyond the usual constraints, provided they stay within their availability bounds. Want to rush out that new feature on limited testing? Sure, just don’t let it blow your 99.9% target. That 0.1% is all yours to “spend" as you wish.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
