As DevOps leaders, we want to empower developers to own their code in production. Production ownership is the best way for developers to deepen their skills and deliver business value, but many leaders hesitate because it involves on-call and firefighting. How do we set up our teams for success and not burnout?

Join Shelby Spees and Liz Fong-Jones as they share how Honeycomb established and evolved a culture of production excellence—maintaining reliability and scalability while shipping features at the rate of a company ten times the size. They will detail how the Honeycomb team uses Service Level Objectives to measure how their services are doing and which users are having a bad time. And they will walk through how the team combines observability with progressive delivery to create tight feedback loops and guardrails for experimentation.

Attendees will walk away with strategies for establishing these practices across their organizations with strong buy-in at the practitioner level. Cultural change isn’t just top-down or bottom-up, it needs support at every level.
