Session Name: Combat Sports Principles That Apply to Site Reliability Engineering
While the day to day life of a professional fighter is vastly different from our lives in SRE, there are an interesting number of combat sports principles that actually apply to SRE. As a combat sports enthusiast/tragic, I plan to show how these principles can help you in your daily life in SRE. And no, it is not just simply “protect yourself at all times”.
