I’m going to give another “Mistakes Were Made” talk at PgConf.EU next month.
I have many disaster stories of my own, but am always looking for more! Stories of data-destruction and tales of unexpected failure are welcome.
You can leave them in the comments, or email me.
The talk focuses on the ways in which systems fail, and the typical kinds of failure we find in web operations. Types of failure I focus on are:
* Failure to Document
* Failure to Test
* Failure to Verify
* Failure to Imagine
* Failure to Implement
Stories that fall outside those categories are especially welcome.
I look forward to your tales of woe!
