The Road to Reliability - Andy Domeier
Winning in today’s technology landscape requires frequent iteration, high availability, and stellar performance, which may seem to be competing priorities. Let's focus on the technical problems that can be solved with Site Reliability Engineering, with a look at a real-life approach to applying SRE practices.
Building an SRE function or delivering on its core tenets within your organization is no small task. Every organization is different; cultures, skillsets, and technologies all vary drastically, making the process to adopt SRE functions difficult and inconsistent.
This talk aims to help folks think about various ways they can more meaningfully apply reliability practices. Continuously improving your organization's Agility, Reliability, Resiliency, and Observability is one of the best competitive advantages for today's technology organizations.
