About the Talk
My CatOps set-up involves a water fountain and automated feeder allowing me to leave my cats to their own devices for up to 5 days. Over the course of setting up this system, found myself making similar decisions to those I make in serverless architectures. When do I build my own versus buy? How much do I trust these cat-care or serverless compute machines? And what do I do when things go wrong? In this talk, I'll discuss how my journey automating CatOps compares to my experiences operating and instrumenting serverless applications.
