“As a long-time Software Engineer moving into the Site Reliability space, I’ve read all the books I could get my hands on. Unfortunately, this left me with a confusing array of information without context. I came away with a deeper understanding of the fundamentals of Site Reliability Engineering and information to better able to define what Site Reliability Engineering means to my organization.”
