Tuesday, March 14, 2017 - 3:20pm3:45pm

Kristine Chen, Google


Traditional SRE have accomplished much on the server-side, making global distributed systems and services incredibly reliable. More users are using mobile in their daily lives and it’s increasingly important that SRE think about reliability on the client side. This talk discusses the importance of a shift in focus to mobile applications and what we are doing to move to a world where client code is considered a first-class citizen. Much of the talk will center around Android though many principles can be applied to other platforms as well.
