Lead for Google's SRE Engagement Model and SRE review programs

Site reliability engineers are Google's experts for operating its tech infrastructure and products. They need to keep up with the enormous scale, rapid growth, and daunting complexity of Google's systems landscape. As traditional methods would not work, SRE treats operations as if it’s a software engineering problem. The talk will give an overview of the SRE approach and how it makes Google's systems fast, reliable, and efficient.

Prerequisite attendee experience level: Advanced - the audience needs a basic understanding how software development and IT operations typically work to appreciate the approach presented in this talk.
