This year marks my 3rd year at SRECon Americas. This year brings a 3-day format with the first day being exclusively dedicated to workshops. Hooray!
The workshops included:
- Containers from Scratch
- SRE Classroom, or How to Build a Distributed System in 3 Hours
- Profiling JVM Applications in Production
- Incident Command for IT - What We’ve Learned from the Fire Department
- Kubernetes 101
- Chaos Engineering Bootcamp
- Ansible for SRE Teams
- Tech Writing 101 for SREs
For the first session, I attended the
Containers from Scratch session. As someone who understands the practical implementation of containers, I really appreciated seeing all the details behind it.
You can find the following resources from the presentation:
I unfortunately didn’t get a chance to see any of Brent Chapman’s session today on Incident Management, but after going to his BayLISA presentation two weeks back, I know it would have been great. You can find his presentation materials here
Bridget Kromhout did a detailed
Kubernetes 101 session. From all accounts, it was awesome. You can find relevant materials here:
You can find James Meickle’s presentation on ‘Ansible for SRE’ here
