Details: 

At Yelp, we ship code to Production several times a day, and we want teams to be responsible for the software they write once it's live. But with great responsibility comes great power, and occasionally, we break stuff. Join us for a talk about how we knew the site was broken, how we diagnosed the issue, how we fixed the problem, and (most importantly), how we write and share a postmortem analysis without pointing fingers or hurting feelings.
