@alana I’m devops, and I’ve worked extensively with both traditional PMO and scrum product ownership. Ask away! I’ll try my best to answer usefully.
@alexis oh awesome!! i'm trying for a job that involves being the PM for a decently-mature infrastructure "portfolio" that has never had a PM/PO (other eng teams at the company do.) i'm trying to envision potential differences between managing ops product portfolios, vs devops or dev.. and just generally think through any gotchas. i'm thinking infra needs to move more slowly and methodically than i might be used to? but.. what else
@hirojin @June @alexis i think this is so old school and weird. when i've seen managers keeping teams from communicating, it was 100% just to keep everyone reliant on them for information. it's like they think PMs are obsolete if we aren't controlling the information flow between ppl who can already easily talk to each other 😅 which is such a... dare i say worthless?... way to spend one's days
BE WARNED this instance will absolutely be unstable at times. It will 10000% be used for experimenting with settings and tweaks to Mastodon. So the place may experience outages, not federate reliably with the rest of the world, have posts go missing, or other technical faults. As such it's meant to be a chill, maybe kinda playful place. FOR BREAKING THE SOFTWARE. Time to see what we can do with this thing! Time to ˥∀IƆOS HƆ⊥I˥⅁
