How Silicon Valley’s SREs Saved Healthcare.gov
Michael “Mikey” Dickerson, U.S. Citizen
Healthcare.gov was at the brink of failure, and a team of SREs from Silicon Valley joined the effort and helped the website undo some decisions that cause it to buckle under the scale of the American People. This talk will discuss how the team was recruited to volunteer their skills in order to ensure Healthcare.gov accomplished its goal of allowing millions of Americans to sign up for healthcare. Mikey will discuss how he and the team approached the stability problems and the four major engineering challenges they had to overcome.
