We are the Operations team at Etsy. Ask us anything!
Hi! My name is Avleen Vig, I’m a Staff Operations Engineer at Etsy. At 2pm ET (or 6pm UTC for those of us who keep time that way!) the team and I will be answering questions on our team, our work, and the field of Operations in general. So come by and ask us anything for the hour!
The members here today are happy to talk about almost anything. We also have some domain expertise in the following areas, but you’re welcome to ask anything that’s on your mind:
- Scaling web infrastructures
- Culture-bridging between operations and development, CI, CD and other things we affectionately relate to DevOps
- Configuration management
- OpsSchool.org and training the next generation of Operations Engineers
- Single malts and photography
- Running our own network
We also have members of our Security and Corporate IT teams here to field questions in those areas! Some interesting things we’ve talked about before:
Update 1: We're having such a great time answering, we've shifted some things around and are going to stay here until 3:30pm ET and keep answering!
Update 2: Thanks for all the great questions everyone! We had a ton of fun answering them. We're wrapping up now, time to get back to meetings :-)
You can find most of us on twitter, and see our posts on our engineering blog: http://www.codeascraft.com/ We’ll also be attending and speaking at Velocity NY and Velocity London, and Surge in the coming months, if you’d like to come see us in person!
