A lot can be learned about shipping software through books, tutorials, and coursework, but there are a whole class of lessons that only ever show up in production environments. Those lessons are extremely valuable, but the barrier to learning about them is high. I'm hoping to lower that barrier a bit with this talk.
This talk contains a handful of lessons I've learned through operating production environments, as told to beginner engineers. Some are obvious, and some are surprising, but none are fiction. Not in-depth, but a good starting point for engineers who want to learn about production engineering.
