The Silver Lining Consortium: Post-Mortems for the Rest of Us

Wednesday, 29 August, 2018 - 11:2012:00

Niall Murphy, Microsoft


This talk describes why the industry would really be much better off if we shared our post-mortems more widely, and in a more structured way. It shows why it benefits both cloud consumers and cloud providers. It proposes the creation of a consortium to do precisely this, and suggests how to express interest in joining.
