Unleashing Generative AI: Improving Developer Productivity in SRE

Wednesday, June 14, 2023 - 9:55 am10:40 am

Sandeep Hooda, DBS Bank


We will talk about how Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) teams can use Generative Artificial Intelligence (AI) to improve productivity and streamline operations. SRE teams are responsible for ensuring that systems are reliable and available, while delivering new features and updates. However, the pressure to deliver updates can lead to burnout, decreasing productivity among developers. Generative AI can help alleviate some of these issues by automating repetitive tasks, allowing developers to focus on more complex problem-solving. By defining what generative AI is, we can then explore how SRE team can leverage it to automate repetitive tasks like code reviews, testing, and deployment. Attendees will gain insights into how to delegate tasks to AI so that they can spend more time on higher-level tasks, leading to increased productivity and job satisfaction.
