My name is Peter Kay, I’m an SRE (Site Reliability Engineer) at Stack Overflow (SO). My job is to make sure SO, the rest of the Stack Exchange sites, and our network/infrastructure are running. I am focused on the application side of things which includes Stack Overflow Talent, Stack Overflow Jobs, Public Q&A, Profiles, Etc…

I love my job and the people I work with. They are some of the smartest people in the industry! But no matter how smart you are, we all make mistakes and this blog is to share all of the ones that I’ve made. Learning from our mistakes is one of the key ways to improve as an engineer and as a person.

Thanks for stopping by and reading about me. I hope my blog helps you in some meaningful way.
