Being kind to 3am you

C2 | Tue 22 Jan | 10:40 a.m.–11:10 a.m.

Presented by

  • Katie McLaughlin

    Katie has worn many different hats over the years. She has been a software developer for many languages, systems administrator for multiple operating systems, and speaker on many different topics. When she's not changing the world, she enjoys making tapestries, cooking, and seeing just how well various application stacks handle emoji.


For engineers who participate in on-call rotations, documentation is critical to resolving issues. Especially when, at 3am, the responding engineer will be -- initially -- on their own, and not performing at their peak. In this short presentation, Katie will discuss some strategies she's implemented as a veteran on-call Site Reliability Engineer, and shows you how to be kind to 3am you. Linux Australia: YouTube:
