I’m sure many of you are (unhappily) responsible for the marketing site’s infrastructure at your company. If you’re running Craft CMS, here’s a neat plugin to add some really useful metrics to it.
A serious gathering of people here to talk about postmortems: Jessica DeVita, Duck Lawn, Tom Griffin, Sue Allspaw Pomeroy, John Allspaw, and Dr. Richard Cook. My brain is melting from the wealth of knowledge here.
This video is suuuuper helpful and I really wish the guy did more of them. Picking a specific airline incident and FAA report, he walks us through three analysis traps that are easy to fall into.

I recently joined the host of Threat Stack’s podcast to talk systems and security monitoring.
