Fortune Befriends the Bold: Rolling Out an SRE Program

Is SRE is the new hotness at your organization? Have you been hired or recently promoted as your company's first or senior SRE leader?

Have you been given a mandate to start introducing SRE usage but are not sure where to begin? Tired of the pager going off without rhyme or reason and wonder how you can shift the pattern? Wondering where to start in discussions with colleagues regarding the differences between monitoring and observability?

This session is for people who get told to "read the Google book" and have found their heads swimming in theory and cool case studies but without a concrete idea regarding what the next steps might be... let alone how to get buy-in from various stakeholders.

If you've ever found yourself saying, "But seriously... how do I take all of these cool blogs and videos and have this translate to something real and valuable for my team and organization? I just need to get this done and I need to do it now." then this session is for you.
