Session Name: Introduction to SRE with Sock Puppets
Are you tired of the same old same old introductory talk on SRE? Do you always sleep through some part of those talks, unclear what SRE fundamentals you don't quite grasp because, well, you were asleep? Well, I have good news for you. For the first time at this or any other conference, I will deliver a relatively comprehensive introduction to SRE using sock puppets (really!). I can pretty much guarantee that you will never forget this session and hence will never forget the fundamentals of SRE I'll cover in it. Not only that, but I think it is a safe bet that if I can pull this off with socks on my hands, you will be able to take everything you learned in this session and relate it with crystal clarity (though perhaps not using the same format) to the others in your organization who need to hear about SRE. Challenge accepted?
