What is Site Reliability Engineering (SRE)?

In the past several years, many of the hot tech firms have adopted Google’s approach of Site Reliability Engineering to improve customer experiences in using their applications and services. What is SRE, and how does it differ from the concept of DevOps? In this talk, I will outline how SRE builds on the concepts of engineers owning their code in production, and what the core principles and activities are of the discipline itself. We will discuss the 4 Golden Signals, the difference between SLIs, SLOs and SLAs, how to define your Error Budget, observability and more.
