Tools I don't miss working with:

Bamboo. What a terrible build/CI system. Ugh.

Myth: It's not worth engineering time to automate a task done once a month/year.

1) if detected/reminded, you still need to remember how to accomplish the task. If it's detected, it's trivial to automate.
2) It's still a task interrupt. Assume that a task -- even if easy -- throws someone out of their current task by 30 minutes each time.
3) If undetected/reminded, double or triple the time it takes for troubleshooting.
4) Brain drain is a thing.
5) No, documentation doesn't help.

Current public cloud infrastructure is more designed for immutablity and "Cattle, not pets" mentality.

While traditional VM environments can be configured to sort of handle that, it's clunky and usually relies upon custom scripts.

On a properly designed 12 factor application in a public cloud, you should almost never encounter an outage due to load or scaling.

Tools I don't miss working with:

My crazy ass shell script that I used before proper config-as-code came along.
