Site Reliability Engineers (SRE) are Google's specialists for designing, building, and running complex services that are reliable, scalable, efficient, and maintainable. The SRE Engagement Model describes how the collaboration between developers and SREs works, how SRE is funded, what kind of work SRE is best suited for, and how reliability engineering can be applied early in the service lifecycle.

In this talk you'll learn:

  • How to "shift left" DevOps principles early into development lifecycle
  • How a relatively small team of specialists can help a large dev org
  • What is meaningful and valuable work for SREs (and what isn't)
