THE CULTURE OF SITE RELIABILITY ENGINEERING
Site Reliabilty Engineering (SRE) is a pessimistic job. While many developers write their code in an optimistic way, thinking about how things will work, SREs mostly think about what can go wrong. They try to optimize distributed systems for the worst case scenarios - traffic overload, cascading failures and how databases can go corrupt. This talk will be about the culture of SREs, how to establish trust between developer teams and SRE teams and how to prevent failure.
