This talk will focus on how where Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) concepts were initially developed. We'll look at the challenges that Bell Labs, Google, and Nationwide faced that resulted in building SRE capabilities from the ground up, so you can apply the parts that address your situation. We'll look at specific issues and opportunities addressed along the way.

This talk will dive into key skill sets needed, and how this role fills gaps and interacts with other technology roles.

We'll cover the following:

  • Where did the SRE come from
  • Key skill sets of an SRE
  • SRE in the context of Dev, Ops, and DevOps
  • Emerging variants and practices
  • A day in the life of an SRE
  • The Three Ways of DevOps from an SRE perspective
  • How you can apply SRE thinking to your organization today.

By end of this talk, you will have a solid understanding of what is SRE and how you can build out SRE in your organization, even without a reorganization or new hire.
