Expert Talks on all things DevOps & SRE

What is Continuous Reliability about?

As the role and discipline of Site Reliability Engineering has developed along the years, companies have also started adapting the new ideas, tech and processes in order to stay relevant and gain market leadership. As such, a lot of folks might have an incorrect or an incomplete idea about the way SRE is done or to how manage SRE teams. There exists a need to have regular conversations about things like:

  1. Platform Engineering
  2. Finops
  3. Blameless postmortems
  4. Chaos Engineering
  5. SRE Anti-Patterns
  6. Building and Managing SRE teams
  7. SRE Leadership

The idea is to get a bunch of SREs to meetup, deliver and listen to monthly talks on Site Reliability Engineering - war room stories, organizational set-up and culture around having processes and runbooks. Talking about learning opportunities and takeways is THE way to nurture the SRE culture - understand why SREs do the things they do, instead of doing it just for the sake of completing checkboxes before scaling, be it infrastructure or team.

Submit talks, panels, workshops and demos - become part of the conversation.

Key takeaways for participants

  1. Improved understanding of organizational needs and requirements.
  2. Improved public speaking skills.
  3. Networking opportunities.
  4. Knowledge sharing and community building.

Who should participate

  • Members of SRE, DevOps or platform teams.
  • A software developer or manager who is responsible for services running on any cloud platform or on-prem data center.
  • Technology leader of an engineering team that manages critical systems which should have minimal to zero downtime.
