Here’s a little blessing you can say for your teams and website responsible for operations this peak-filled holiday season:

Thank you to all who have improved our system’s capabilities and robustness for our customers.

May our dashboards be green and charts stable

May fixes flow swiftly through the pipelines to production

May instances start quickly and our clusters scale smoothly

May customers be delighted by the value we have created.

We recognize that all complex systems have issues, known and unknown.

Our adaptive capacity provides the system resilience.

When the alerts come, remember…

We are all in this together.

(optional) Hold on to your butts!

The #NoDrama Site Operations Blessing

Good luck!

If you feel like you need more, maybe wave a Rubber Chicken over it.
