DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE).

Our speaker has been creating leading edge infrastructure and cloud automation platforms for over 15 years. His recent work in Kubernetes operations has lead to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and controlling infrastructure. The rise of Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) is part of that redefinition of operations vs development roles in organizations.

In this talk, we’ll explore this trend and discuss concrete ways to cope with the coming changes. We’ll look at the reasons while SRE is attractive and get specific about ways that teams can bootstrap their efforts and keep their DevOps Fu strong.
