The ongoing pandemic hasn't just challenged health and movement of people worldwide - the sheer unpredictability has also taken a toll on businesses, strategies and their technical delivery.

The Platform team at STARZPLAY one of the largest video streaming providers in the MENA region has some bittersweet memories and lots of learnings from this time. On one hand was a sudden surge in viewership by almost 3 times (fueled by the lockdowns and people started binge watching) which was a good sign for business on the other hand was handling the challenges of scaling up the infra, keeping up with the software delivery schedules intact. Adding to the woes were spikes in cyber attacks to the service to exploit the vulnerable times and the challenge to equip remote-working capabilities to the organization.

This talk is a true story about the challenges presented to an Engineering Team amid the COVID-19 pandemic and how DevOps principles guided them out of troubled waters. The lessons learnt will go a long way in setting the right organizational culture to overcome crisis.
