Expert Talks on Platform Engineering, FinOps, Chaos Engineering & all things SRE

What is SRE CFP 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.

Scaling DevOps: A Consistent and Manageable Approach for Company-Wide Application Development

Abstract

In the ever-evolving world of software development, maintaining consistency and manageability across company-wide projects is a significant challenge, especially for smaller infrastructure and DevOps teams tasked with overseeing critical systems. This talk delves into an approach that emphasizes consistency and scalability in application development and deployment. We will explore a specially developed CI/CD orchestration system and templates, designed to standardize the creation of new applications with essential defaults and monitoring capabilities. This system is not only a facilitator for scaling small teams but also aligns with Continuous Delivery Foundation’s projects (building on shoulder of giants).

Outline

1. Understanding the Need for Consistency in Application Development

  • The challenges of managing company-wide software development stack.
  • The role of consistency in scaling small infra and DevOps tooling teams.

2. Introduction to GoDaddy’s internal CI/CD Orchestration System for Scalability

  • Key features of the CI/CD orchestration system.
  • How the system supports the creation of applications with standardized monitoring and deployment protocols.

3. Synergy with Continuous Delivery Foundation Projects

  • Use of existing tools industry wide tools than build from scratch
  • Integration and compatibility with CDF projects like Jenkins, Tekton, and Spinnaker.
  • Enhancing cloud-native CD and digital transformation efforts through these integrations.

4. Strengthening Security and Governance in the Development Pipeline

  • Approaches to incorporating security and governance in the CI/CD process.
  • Ensuring secure software delivery in a scalable environment.

5. Fostering a Community Culture for Efficient Development Practices

  • Encouraging cross-team collaboration and easy onboarding.
  • Lessons from the global community on managing scalable software development.

6. Leadership Strategies in Scaling DevOps Operations

  • Discussing the role of strategic leadership in digital transformation.
  • Best practices in platform engineering for scalable solutions.

7. Conclusion: Building a Scalable and Consistent Software Delivery Future

  • Reflections on the importance of consistency and manageability in software development.
  • Inviting contributions to the ongoing development of scalable DevOps practices.

Takeaways

Participants will leave with practical insights into managing and scaling a small infrastructure and DevOps team, understanding how to implement consistent and manageable approaches in application development.
