Matt Rogish examines the failures of modern airline operations—from United Airlines flight 173 in 1978 to Air France flight 447 in 2009 and First Air flight 6560 in 2011—and explains how NTSB investigations have dramatically improved flight safety. Matt then applies lessons learned in disaster recovery and analysis, teamwork, task saturation, and systems design to modern software application and infrastructure architecture at scale to achieve higher availability, reduced errors, and more scalable systems.
There are no graphic or triggering images in this presentation, although it includes transcripts from CVRs (cockpit voice recorders) and may be stressful for fearful fliers (even though Matt emphasizes that commercial air travel is the safest it’s ever been).
Matt Rogish is cofounder and CEO of ReactiveOps, a DevOps-as-a-service and consulting company, where he’s led growth from zero to 20 people (and growing), built a company, product, and strategy, managed P&L, and (so far) has kept it from cratering into the ground. Matt has been a Ruby and Rails developer since 2006. Previously, he was CTO of several startups (all using Rails), including most recently, Rails Machine, a Rails hosting company.
