Position: Production engineer at SoundCloud
Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) was originally conceived internally at Google. By now, it has become public knowledge via various channels like conferences or books. But how can you apply SRE principles in your organization, given that you are not Google and cannot just blindly do everything exactly as Google does? And how does SRE relate to DevOps, which you might or might not have indulged in already? The speaker has seen both sides, with many years working as an SRE at Google and later as a Production Engineer at SoundCloud, a much smaller startup running many service using a highly innovative tech stack and a radical DevOps approach. Let’s dive into questions of culture and scale and come up with some helpful pointers how you can learn from the giant without losing you own way.
