Topic: Operations Reform: Tom Sawyer-ing Your Way To Operational Excellence
Speaker: Tom Limoncelli, SRE Manager, Stack Overflow, Inc
Stack Overflow, Inc. had 150+ services across 3 teams with very little consistency in operational hygiene. Using a simple self-assessment, teams were motivated to improve. The self-assessment is blameless, non-bureaucratic, and succeeds where KPIs fail.
NOTE: This is a rehearsal of a talk Tom will be giving at a DOES2018 (https://events.itrevolution.com/us/) and LISA2018 (https://www.usenix.org/conference/lisa18). After the talk, the audience will be asked for feedback.
