This article presents in incident theme that I've lived through many times but never had such a pithy name for.

  Geoff Townsend — Blameless

There are risks and downsides inherent in a distributed system, so it's worth thinking about whether you really need one.

  Pipitz — Adevinta

And here's a counterpoint to the previous article: deciding whether you need a distributed system isn't just about scale.

  Marc Brooker

The effectiveness of memes in availability campaigns.

This short post is a pile of memes, and the video one is top notch.

  Ross Brodbeck

Paraphrasing part of this article: either you didn't understand your system fully when you wrote the alert, or there really are sporadic failures.

  Chris Siebenmann

If you've ever created an action item from an incident along the lines of "don't take unnecessary risks in the future", you need to read this one.

The rest of you need to read it too.

  Lorin Hochstein

A how-to for building anomaly detection alerting in Prometheus with specific config examples.

  Karl Stoney

  u/console_fulcrum and others — reddit

  Honeycomb

  Full disclosure: Honeycomb is my employer.

An experienced SRE discusses the skills and experiences you might be quizzed about in an interview for an SRE role.
