  • Configuration errors seem to come up a lot in postmortems: No answers in this point but good thoughts around why this might be true if it is. (Salesforce had a major outage recently in DNS was blamed on an operations engineer vs the system that allowed the change to be made) One point in that that resonated with me is the fact that we’re more likely to invest in multiple stages for code than config. It’s a topic we’ve discussed on my team on and off. It does seem like it would be hard to do the work that would make multi-stage config deploys possible (Certain kinds of them anyways. Some seem by their nature to be global)
