Distributed Sys Teams

Srivatsa Ray, Fastly


Single Points of Failure is a term we all dread in the technology world. We go through the pain of making sure services are resilient and distributed and yet, more often than not, we fail to give the same treatment to the most critical part of any system—the Humans.

This talk will focus on the importance of hiring remote and hiring around the world. Distributed teams not only add value to the core systems but also help us bring each other closer to one another. Distributed teams promote diversity, inclusion, break down political borders, cultural understanding of one another AND can absolutely be more productive while giving you 24-hour coverage on teams!

Srivatsa Ray, Fastly

Sri Ray works at the intersection of DevOps, Security, and doing the right thing. He searches for solutions that respect and compliment the human element of systems. While not architecting systems or dreaming of the next improvement to make, he spends most of his time on planes traveling around and getting to know the only place we have ever called home—Earth. He uses this opportunity to understand cultures and, more importantly, relish local food.
