I am on vacation this week but I still managed to take a look at the collection of posts our community produced about DevOps. A reminder to everyone, make sure you schedule some time off to collect, reflect, and relax! We’ve all worked so hard in 2021 to keep systems active, applications deployed, and teammates informed. Without rest, we can burn out and no one wants that. So if you’re able to, plan some time off and rest up!
