A Dark and Stormy Night: Operational Antipatterns



Kiran Bhattaram shares common operational antipatterns, useful tactics and stories learned in difficult situations: from a system with completely opaque fractal queues, a multitenant system with no circuit breakers, or a piece of software that requires hours of manual operations.


Kiran Bhattaram is an engineer on the Observability team at Stripe. She has previously written code for the New York Times, LinkedIn, and MIT CSAIL.
