SRE’s Evolution- Introduction to Technical and Cultural Practices


DevOps is a mindset change that tries to balance release velocity with system reliability. It aims to increase an organization’s ability to continuously deliver reliable applications and services at a high velocity when compared to traditional soft ware development processes. A common misconception about DevOps is that it is a technology.

Instead, DevOps is a set of supporting practices (such as, build, test, and deployment) that combines software development and IT operations. Th ese practices establish a culture that breaks down the metaphorical wall between developers (who aim to push new features to production) and system administrators or operators (who aim to keep the code running in production). Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) is Google’s approach to align incentives between development and operations that are key to building and maintaining reliable engineering systems. SRE is a prescriptive way to implement DevOps practices and principles. The talk will focus on SRE’s evolution, it’s approach towards DevOps key pillars and will introduce SRE’s key technical and cultural practices at a high level.
