>> Actually, I have a date tonight.
[SOUND] >> Well, you probably want to cancel the date.
>> What, why?
>> You're on call this weekend, which means if the server crashes
at any time, day or night, it's your job to fix it.
It is vital that we fix the problem immediately.
Failure's not an option.
>> Wha, she's-
>> You're a cute boy.
>> Hey, I'm so sorry I had to leave.
I've been giving it some thought, and.
I can't do this anymore.
>> Hey, I'm so sorry
Dear God, no.
>> He's such a freak when he's on call.
>> Yeah, I used to be the same way when I was on call.
>> Well, I use VictorOps now, which makes being on call suck a lot less.
>> It helps the whole team prepare for critical incidents.
In fact, I have it set up so
that I only get alerted when there's a problem that I can actually solve.
And if I still need help, I can reroute the alert to the right team member.
So that way, I'm almost never interrupted.
VictorOps gave me my life back so now I have time for other things.
>> [LAUGH] That's really cool.
[LAUGH] >> So it's come to this.
>> Oh, hey Tyler.
