What Romance Stories Taught me about Incident Management

Incident Management is the process of effectively responding to outages and incidents in your service with minimal further disruption to the users of the service. As an avid reader and consumer of romantic stories and a former SRE in charge of responding to incidents, Ajuna will go over what they’ve learnt about how to handle (or not handle) incidents from reading romance novels.
