Damo's Podcast Highlights 2016 #34

I subscribe to many podcasts, you can see the list as it was in 2015 here: Developer podcasts v2 but I thought I would start to keep a weekly log of the episodes that I found interesting or useful in some way.

[RunAs Radio] Building a Blameless Post-Mortem Culture https://runasradio.com/Shows/Show/486
  • How do you build a blameless post-mortem culture?
  • A methodology embraced by the safest and most reliable organizations - think aircraft safety. Having everyone involved in an incident able to discuss everything they did and saw helps to get a clear picture of the truth. Without that information, it's very hard to make real improvements in our organizations.
  • ChatOps as a strategy to get there, using tools like Slack to let people see the conversations going on and capture the critical information during an incident to address problems.

[Hello Tech Pros] Motivation http://hellotechpros.com/greg-knapp-motivation/
  • Neither the carrot or the stick are advantageous. Tap into intrinsic motivations: passion and purpose.
  • Everyone wants to count.
  • It’s important to have a support group around you that believe in your vision.
  • Quit because you don’t like it. Don’t give up if you think you can’t.
  • Convince yourself you MUST follow your dreams.
  • You don’t need to take MASSIVE action, you just need to take some action. Start now rather than later.
  • Get clear on your passion and purpose. What’s your underling emotional benefit for what your going for?
