Systems Engineers(or SREs/Engineers) have always deeply cared about resource efficiency. There is no better time to apply your skills to the cloud than now! This talk will dive deep into the work Shopify undertook in 2022 to significantly reduce our cloud infra footprint and costs, detailing the tools, approaches, and trade-offs we had to navigate along the way.
