Session Name: SRE Culture as a Glue - in times of global pandemic
In this talk, we will look one year back to the times when the global pandemic started, and I took on a new role aspiring to bring various teams together and embrace SRE Culture as a glue. Using SRE practices helped me not only to onboard into a new organization during a global pandemic, but also to build a unique horizontal role that force-multiplies cross-team engineering efficiency through SRE practices. Breaking down silos between teams was already a non-trivial task before pandemic, and with the new reality we were all learning how to be effective and connected in fully remote mode. When we look at SRE practices, those can work as a connective tissue between teams. SRE principles allow us to define common goals and set practices that connect teams with different technology stack and scope.
