Culture, Career, Evolution: looking ahead at Platform vs SRE vs DevOps

Culture, Career, Evolution: looking ahead at Platform vs SRE vs DevOps

A closer look at how Myntra does it; understanding the emerging opportunities for career growth in engineering teams.



Rootconf SRE conference in November 2023 opened up a pandora’s box about SRE vs DevOps vs Platform Engineering - what do these roles mean to engineers? What is the impact of these functions in different phases of an organization’s growth?

📍Myntra, Bangalore

We will learn from Myntra’s experience - how the engineering team focuses on career progression - not number of people, but the quality of work and impact. The speakers will share how Myntra’s engineering team has evolved, and clarify the confusion around roles like DevOps, SRE, platform engineers, etc, and what they mean for Myntra’s engineering function.

The event is open to all to attend.
