Open Mic Episode 1 (Video!)

This is a new video series where John and Damon visit high performing companies and record an insider's tour of the tools and processes those companies are using to solve their DevOps problems. 

In our first episode, we visited Shopzilla in sunny Los Angeles. Juan Paul Ramirez gave us a live tour of Shopzilla's metrics and dashboard efforts across the application lifecycle (from development to production).

Juan Paul wrote up a great summary of the video on his blog:

Fascinating, and very much appreciated. Looking forward to future videos in the series.

Very kool, thanks to Damon and John for putting this together and Shopzilla for sharing with the world. I look forward to future installments of the series. Great work!

Great video. This is very similar to what we've done with Circonus. We're big data whores, we bring in virtually any metrics that our customers can think of. It's very empowering to correlate unrelated data and show to your boss how a service outage can affect the business.
