When It's OK to Throw Someone Under the Bus

DevOps

DevOps is a culture of shared responsibility while taking accountability. A culture of teamwork and collaboration. But let’s face it, we’re all human, and sometimes we all get the urge to throw someone under the bus.

And now you can! Next time you feel the need to squash someone, just visit a page that doesn’t exist on our website (like this one).

You can even choose the victim (see the list below). All are on the marketing team… which for some of you might make things even more fun. So, go ahead, enjoy the catharsis and get it out of your system, so you’re in a better frame of mind to collaborate with your own team.

Victim list (pick your squashee):

DevOpsEd – Ed has the fancy title of Director, Web Marketing, making him our web team’s lionhearted leader (grrr). He’s a mega-creative (slightly cray-cray) guy who spends his nights grinding his teeth as he obsesses about consistency and UX. You don't really need to throw him under the bus, because if something's wrong, he's likely to do that himself!DevOpsBrian - Brian is one of our Product Marketing Managers. When not running half marathons at a cheetah’s pace, he’s laser-focused on our interactive tools and on making sure our site gives you the information you need, when you need it. He's also a super-nice guy, so if you squash him, you may feel just a teensy bit guilty about it.
DevOpsMike - Mike is our Web Developer and the muscle behind our site. He keeps things running smoothly and handles all our requests with equal parts deftness and aplomb. He's also a quadrillion-degree-black-prajioud in traditional Muay Thai (kickboxing), so throw him under the bus at your own risk.
