Production Readiness April 2018
Although the pace of change at Made has slowed over the last 12 months, we are still testing new techniques and re-examining best practices. It's useful to periodically reflect on what good practice looks like and make sure we're spreading that knowledge to our dev teams. This is a quick guide to what the Ops team need from developers in 2018. If your systems don't comply with these guidelines, you should chat to a friendly ops person so we can help you prioritise and fix issues.
Ops can't operate your system if they don't know how to work it. Every system should have an
operators.md file in the root of the github repository that describes:
- What the system does.
- What the business impact of an outage is.
