This week’s highlights

  • 🚨 Atlassian suffers an outage, sparking fears of data loss.

  • 🚨 Google announces Cloud SQL Insights for MySQL.

Top Quotes  

  • 💡 “When Lambda first came out, before I even used it, this is how I thought it would work … then it didn’t. So it’s cool that it’s now available. I’m surprised it wasn’t the default — the starting point — before getting more complex, like API gateways.”
  • 💡 “It’s almost required: These tools are so important when it’s a managed service and you can’t get under the covers yourself. So it’s cool, for sure. Especially when you get into how these things work with your cloud and how they interact with each other, it becomes even more important.”
