I'm sure many of you are familiar with Corey Quinn, the notorious cloud
comedian influencer. Corey is fairly hilarious, and recently he agreed to live-tweet as he watched my recent talk from DevOpsDays NYC 2020. For your amusement, here are the tweets.
Corey Quinn@quinnypigIn an effort to help my dear friend @mattstratton hit 9000 followers, I will now watch his most recent talk video (which I have not seen) and liveroast the living crap out of it / him in this thread. Join me! twitter.com/mattstratton/s…04:57 AM - 26 Mar 2020Matt "Garbage File" Stratton @mattstratton@QuinnyPig I would nominate my zebra talk, but there is stuff about trauma in it, which isn't great for roasting. but the video of my talk at devopsdays NYC just went online, so you could live-roast that? https://t.co/SzgmYuKns0
Corey Quinn@quinnypigWe start by noticing that the embedded video on the page is not in fact @mattstratton's talk, but rather @KrisBuytaert's, demonstrating the attention to detail responsible for Matt's transition out of writing code and into talking about how other people should write code instead.04:59 AM - 26 Mar 2020
Corey Quinn@quinnypig"It's great to be back in NYC" says @mattstratton, demonstrating the primary DevRel duty of going to exotic places and drinking with your friends.05:01 AM - 26 Mar 2020
Corey Quinn@quinnypigBut @mattstratton settles on the definition of service that leads directly to bikeshedding about the meaning of the word "Team."05:03 AM - 26 Mar 2020
Corey Quinn@quinnypigAt this point in the talk @mattstratton demonstrates recursion by, and I am not kidding, explaining the process of explaining an inside joke.05:10 AM - 26 Mar 2020
Corey Quinn@quinnypigBecause he's the ThoughtLeader we deserve, @mattstratton is ahead of the curve by bypassing telling engineers they're doing it wrong and skipping directly to telling senior leadership they're doing it wrong.
Matt Stratton no longer works at PagerDuty.05:17 AM - 26 Mar 2020
Corey Quinn@quinnypigHe's now making his third reference to @honeycombio. Honeycomb doesn't employ developer advocates directly because they don't need to; everyone else speaks adoringly of them for free.05:18 AM - 26 Mar 2020
Corey Quinn@quinnypig"This is when you want @pagerduty to wake you up."
I can only imagine the internal OKRs on midnight wakeups of others.05:20 AM - 26 Mar 2020
Corey Quinn@quinnypigAnd thus endeth the talk. "Come work with me at PagerDuty, we're hiring" sadly didn't age super well, and there was a lost opportunity to bikeshed about where microservices start and stop.
All in all, another excellent @mattstratton talk. Please follow him on the twitters.05:26 AM - 26 Mar 2020
