Lessons from a Developer in DevOps

Friday, September 22, 2017 — 1:30PM - 3:00PM

DevOps, software developers working on or within operations teams, is becoming more common across the high-tech industries but remains mystifying to many technologists who haven’t experienced Ops first hand. Joining Google’s specialized team of engineers working on operations automation and tooling, the Site Reliability Engineers (SREs), I learned new skill sets that had been missing in my decade as a successful software engineer. The organizational best practices that allow SREs to keep Google-scale infrastructure running smoothly, and the hard laws of designing software systems that scale in real-world physical constraints.
