Increment is a print and digital magazine about how teams build and operate software systems at scale.

Between April 2017 and November 2021, Increment published over 250 stories by and for the developer community, covering everything from COBOL to API design, from scaling systems to mindsets and practices that improve both the developer and user experience. The core team within Stripe worked with over 400 engineers, editors, writers, illustrators, and more to create and distribute 19 issues, from an inaugural edition examining the state of on-call and incident response to the final issue exploring the import, impact, and ever-evolving practices of software planning.
