Next Wave of Reliability Engineering

In 2018, Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) will turn 15 years old. Since Google's inception of the term SRE, companies across the world have adopted a new operations mindset along with automation, deployment and monitoring principals. Most of what SRE does now is well established throughout the industry, so what is the next-wave of reliability principals and automation frameworks? This session will dive into what the future holds for reliability engineering as a field and what will be the next areas of investment and improvement for reliability teams.

11:25 AM - 12:05 PM
Creating Digital Magic at Disney

This presentation will look at how several Disney teams are creating digital magic by using DevOps and SRE practices, automation tools, cloud hosting, container platforms, service level objectives, chaos engineering, continuous learning and courage. We will look at specific examples where teams have been able to overcome obstacles and achieve greater speed, efficiency, quality and scale without overburdening the group or demanding inhumane operational heroics. The intent is to tell a story that entertains, has practical benefit to the community and encourages those facing similar challenges. Join us on this magical DevOps journey and hopefully you too will be inspired to make a positive difference, create some magic along the way and keep moving forward!

Self-Service to Avoid Tickets and Toil

Doesn't it feel like someone or something is always interrupting you? And then you are frequently interrupting others to do something for you? Minimizing interruptions and escalations is the key to productivity for SREs and SysAdmins. Let's take a look at the automation and process improvements that high-performing organizations are using to reduce interruptions, reduce their dependency on ticket queues, and free up more of their Operations teams' valuable time.
