Event description


In this livestream, Betsy and I are going to live-stream resolving a cascade failure of a Heroku-hosted, RDS-backed Ruby on Rails API.

We’ll be working on solving a critical production issue for one of our delivery client-partners; Notabli. Notabli is a worker/founder-owned scrapbooking tool. They make it easy for family members to take pictures, share them, and print them in a private, secure environment. They’re also 100% donation driven. They provide an amazing service! But, they don’t have piles of money to throw at Unicorn 10x Programmers the SV startup scene is so enraptured by.

In lieu of payment, they’ve granted us the rights to share our sessions solving the problems they’re experiencing in the hopes that maybe, just maybe, viewers will be interested in hiring us for our technical coaching services or our real world refactoring training. (End of Pitch ;))

Notabli reached out to us because during the Christmas rush their API was falling over consistently. Their CTO, Ty Rauber was working hard to bring it back up, but he wanted a second pair of programmer-eyes, and I was bored.

To get more context, you can read our article: Incident Report! How We Used the OODA Loop to Triage a Amazon RDS Cascade Failure for a Heroku-hosted Rails App!

We think we can make significant progress in two two-hour sessions, and we’re inviting you to ride-along with us. We’re not going to solve the problem beforehand like last time. We will have the shared work machine up and loaded with a functioning copy of the source code though!

Jackson likely will join us for the first 15~30 minutes to make sure we have everything we need, and then we’ll dive right in.
