the publicly available draft now has several new chapters and 60% more content, so if you've downloaded it before, you might want to take a fresh peek. :D https://t.co/Xj9AjCj42y

on call *doesn't* have to be miserable. it can be a point of pride, joy, and satisfaction, even something you look forward to. leadership simply has to care.. and act like it. this thread is an excellent case study in healthy on call practices. https://t.co/4L7yBGUGSd

every dashboard is a sunk cost every dashboard is an answer to some long-forgotten question every dashboard is an invitation to pattern-match the past instead of interrogate the present every dashboard gives the illusion of correlation every dashboard dampens your thinking https://t.co/OIEowa1COa

this entire twitter thread is a gold mine of good advice, but i'm picking on this one because i was just thinking that i hadn't linked to this @jessitron post NEARLY enough. if you're bogged down in stupid arguments about your deploy pipeline, this post is the argument-ender. https://t.co/Od6Cu0JWfh

Q: "Correlating distributed tracing and logs, what is the default tooling for this? What are the best tools for visualizing this?" A: ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡ (I would argue that no true observability tool would split your logs from your traces; the arbitrarily-wide structured event covers both) https://t.co/uIJdnKJ9qK

recently i saw that @pierrevincent had become a honeycomb user, and the world made 5% more sense to me. ๐Ÿ˜† i still remember seeing him give a talk on o11y back in ~2017 and going "holy shit, someone ELSE is talking about high cardinality, dimensionality, wide events? TWO of us!" https://t.co/nvRwSuyDBO
