No, seriously, WTF is SRE?! 

This is your chance to tell us what you think, submit your talk today and don’t miss the opportunity to join our line-up. It’s on fire!

For this second edition, we’ve decided to focus on three macro areas (which will also be the three virtual tracks at the conference):

  1. Security & DevSecOps
  2. Observability (in the broadest sense)
  3. Reliability

Security & DevSecOps

• Run time, how do you manage security patches.

• How do you reduce the attack surface?

• Network security in the Cloud.

• What happens to security when you have large and complex systems?

• Threat models in the time of Cloud Computing.

• Runtime security monitoring.

• Compliance in the Cloud Native space.

• DevSecOps on Multicloud systems

• How do you manage Security in a Multicloud environment?


• Monitoring Distributed Systems.

• Tracing failures through a Distributed System.

• Alerting/visualisation.

• Analytics.

• Adopting SRE, monitoring SLIs, agreeing on SLOs and SLAs.

• Error budget like a pro.

• Shipping operable and observable services.

• Observability and Maintainity sanity on multicloud.

• What’s the difference between Multicloud and Hybrid Cloud?


• How do you reduce the impact of failures on customers?

• How do you maximize service availability?

• What's the effect of multicloud on reliability?

• High Availability

• How can chaos engineering help reliability?

• Auto-scaling

• Is 5 9s (99.999%) really viable?

• Making Edge computing/IoT devices reliable

Try to stay on theme. But if you’re a rule breaker (like our CEO), send us your proposal anyway, even if it’s a bit off topic. You never know ;)
