Staff Software Engineer, The New York Times
Lesley Cordero is currently a Staff Software Engineer at The New York Times. She has spent the majority of her career on edtech teams as an engineer, including Google for Education and other edtech startups.
In my previous roles I have focused on building robust data pipelines, setting technical strategy, building excellent engineering teams & communities, and reliability management. Some more specifics include setting org-wide vision & strategy for observability, improving on-call processes, adopting chaos engineering practices, and cultivating culture that builds with the most vulnerable employees in mind first.
I show care for others by holding them accountable to the best versions of themselves – and by buying them the occasional bubble tea.
Effective Observability in Microservice Architectures
Managing microservice architectures requires navigating highly complex systems. This complexity informs how we approach making these systems observable.
We’ll review a standardized platform-focused approach to building effective observable architectures, including how it addresses the new organizational challenges specific to microservices. The platform-focused approach encompasses three parts: the patterns we use, the needed organizational support, and the stack we use.
