What we're about

What is HumanOps?

HumanOps (http://www.humanops.com) is a set of principles which focus on the human aspects of running infrastructure.

It deliberately highlights the importance of the teams running systems, not just the systems themselves.

The health of your infrastructure is not just about hardware, software, automations and uptime - it also includes the health and wellbeing of your team.

The goal of HumanOps is to improve and maintain the good health of your team: easing communication, reducing fatigue and reducing stress.

Learn more about HumanOps (http://www.humanops.com)and get involved with defining the principles (https://github.com/HumanOps/HumanOps).


What is HumanOps San Francisco?

This group is for the San Francisco community to get together to discuss topics around HumanOps. Following the success of the initial HumanOps London meetup in May 2016 (https://www.meetup.com/HumanOps-London/events/229460050/), we decided to run another one in San Francisco in June 2016 (https://www.meetup.com/HumanOps-SanFrancisco/events/231558901/). With speakers from Spotify, Yelp, PagerDuty, Server Density and other companies doing interesting things around ops, we hosted 3-4 short presentations followed by chats.

We hope to run 2-3 events a year so stay tuned to this group to hear when the next one is announced.

Want to run your own HumanOps event?

We'd love to hear from you if you're interested in running a local event. We have 3 requirements: 1) You must have a clearly published code of conduct. 2) No vendor talks. 3) You should aim for a diverse set of speakers. Just get in touch.
