Service Ownership @Slack
Great talk on how slack introduced service ownership and converted a centralised ops team to an "internal platform" team.

So now we've got this split, where developers are still doing features, but now they're increasingly responsible for reliability and performance, and we tossed postmortems over there while we were at it. And service engineering is providing the cloud platform. Here's the cloud platform that you build your services on, and observability tools. Server discovery and defining best practice on how to do all of this stuff, because we've been doing it for a long time.

A solution for resisting SSL interception without breaking compatibility or requiring cooperation with third parties is needed. The SSL/TLS protocol allows not only servers to authenticate themselves using certificates, but clients as well. Client certificates are widely popular in some government agencies and countries, such as Estonia [27], but are not used by websites catering to the general (US) public. Interestingly, client certificates allow us to sidestep the interception problem.
