Abstract: 

We all stand upon the shoulders of giants, SRE/DevOps remains one of the last areas of our industry where you do not learn what we do in school. Each of us are here because someone took us under their wing and mentored us. By building a new grad program we can pay back the investment that the previous generation made in us, create a culture of learning and growth, mature our existing processes and workflows, and set the next generation of SRE/DevOps people up for success in a demanding industry.

Chris Stankaitis, The Pythian Group

Focusing on culture and transformation Chris is thrilled to be speaking at SRECon again and is excited to have the chance to drive discussions around the evolving role SRE/DevOps plays in tech. Chris leads a large, diverse, high change/pace, fully remote DevOps consulting group for Pythian that help design, build and maintain many of the services and apps that we use daily.
