We had an excellent time at PagerDuty Summit 2019. The folks we met at the booth and in the hallway track felt particularly kindred to Team Honeybee: we’ve all been on-call, and we all want it to be better. The main themes of the conference revolved around best practices and learnings for finding issues faster, knowing exactly what to do in an incident, enabling on-call to know how to prioritize an alert, and what our community can do to improve on-call life.
