SLOs, SREs, and GHGs

Tuesday, 25 October, 2022 - 14:2514:40

Bill Johnson, Microsoft


With all the different technologies and methodologies available to us, we still share one thing -- the planet. This talk will show how software is impacting the planet through greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and how you can use SLOs to measure and drive down the emissions that your systems are responsible for. You will see a real-world example of this and come away with many different ways to set and effect your own GHG SLOs!
