SRE in the Small and in the Large

Friday, December 9, 2016 - 4:00pm5:30pm

Niall Murphy and Todd Underwood, Google


SRE is often perceived as a useful but relatively narrow role only appropriate for large scale systems engineering in very large organizations, and irrelevant to everyone else. We hope to convince you that at its core, SRE contains a set of principles that apply as easily to a single-person startup as they do to Google. Along the way, we'll try to produce some evidence that even your boss might find compelling about why your organization should adopt some SRE standard practices.
