The purpose of an SRE team is to keep its services up, reliable, performant and efficient. How do effective SRE teams do this?

We'll run through an overview of key SRE competencies: monitoring and alerting, incident response, disaster recovery, performance and efficiency, change management and capacity planning.

We'll also look at the habits of successful SRE teams and some common pitfalls.
