Demystifying SRE and DevOps

At this time [masked]), the plan is for this to be a virtual meetup. Please keep your eyes open for anything that might change!

Demystifying SRE and DevOps

DevOps made its debut ten years ago, and there has been confusion over exactly what it is ever since. From a cultural movement, to a set of tools, to job and team descriptions, there have been many conflicting viewpoints. When Site Reliability Engineering emerged as a discipline in 2016, it only added to the confusion among Engineering and Engineering Leadership. Unfortunately confusion still remains, and many wonder how to incorporate these ideas and roles into their organizations.

By the end of this session, you will have a firm grasp of what SRE and DevOps are and how they relate to one another. I will describe the advantages and pitfalls of common industry practices, describe tools for sharing information, and discuss balancing innovation with availability. Finally, you will have suggestions and ideas for incorporating SRE into your organization, with the goal of iterating more rapidly and safely.

Waldo Grunenwald

Waldo is a geek, and if you find him odd, there are plenty of things you could blame that on. He's a long-time Sys/Ops Engineer, enjoys leading teams, and is active in the DevOps community. He may or may not be Batman. He is pretty keen on helping orgs stop hurting themselves, insight tooling (trending / monitoring / alerting), and automation in general, and actually enjoys public speaking. He takes joy in helping teams and orgs to stop hurting themselves. In his spare time, he enjoys collecting hobbies that he doesn't have the time to engage in. He hates writing about himself in the third person, and aspires to one day be a better bio writer.
