Seven For Sunday
Hi. I'm Jon Oropeza, and these are the seven most interesting things I discovered, referenced or dug up this week for my fellow engineering leaders: Engineering Managers, Principal and Distinguished Engineers, VP / Director of Engineering, Startup CTOs and those aspiring to be.

How do I get my team into observability by Charity Majors
I've been spending time thinking about a post I shared a few weeks ago, describing the three patternistic actions of a manager:
