Humane On-call

Thursday, June 15, 2023 - 3:10 pm3:35 pm

Martin Barry, Fastly


On-call is part of the working life for many folks in SRE, technical operations and software development roles.

It's a key enabler of the 24x7 operations that most businesses require and yet it is often an afterthought in the hiring, on-boarding and managing phases of team building.

This talk will aim to underline the importance of on-call and why it deserves more thoughtful consideration.

Attendees will take-away ideas for adoption of on-call at their company or changes they could make to their current on-call situation.
