Amy Tobey, Elastic


A common discussion anywhere SREs gather to talk about our craft is "what does SRE mean?" This is something we all have strong opinions about in the abstract and have to be flexible about in practice. In this session, Amy will combine her own experience with interviews to talk about how SRE work is done in the real world. She hopes we can all leave with a better understanding of what our peers in other organizations are doing and how our local variants are just as valid as anything in a book.

More details: I intend to take the varieties of human work model and look at various approaches to SRE in the talk. Having moved around a bit in my career gives me a wide perspective, but I intend to supplement that by interviewing folks from 10-20 additional companies to bring more depth.
