Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) is one of the hottest areas as companies look to build reliable systems and their online presence. As companies rush to adopt SRE principles, Service Level Objectives (SLOs)—the combination of cultural philosophies, practices, and tools—are the most important place to begin. This is why you don't want to miss the first SLO Conference for Site Reliability Engineers, aptly named SLOConf, happening online May 17 - 20, 2021!
The SRE community needs a place to gather and focus on SLOs in depth. This free virtual conference will cover topics at all levels, from an introduction to SLOs to the practical application of SLOs. This is a community event made and led by Site Reliability Engineers and influencers who care about reliability and becoming more customer-centric by adopting, measuring, and optimizing SLOs.
Tracks and Sessions
SLOConf affords attendees the opportunity to participate throughout the day based on interests, with minimal synchronous communication. There are four tracks allowing you to narrow down what you want to learn about SLOs:
- New to SLOs
- Technical and Deep Dive
- Beyond Theory
With 45 talks from 35 leaders in the SRE community, hands-on labs, and other bonus content, this free virtual event has a strict no sales pitch policy.
What to Expect
- Laser focus on learning about Service Level Objectives and closely related concepts - error budgets, service level indicators (SLIs), Slogicians
- Live Slack discussion hosted by Beyond Seattle SRE Meetup
- On-demand pre-recorded videos curated by the program committee from the community
- Live 15-minute hands-on labs
- Networking opportunities with job postings from companies hiring now
Keynotes and Speakers
There is also an excellent lineup of speakers SLOconf has put together! Along with our own Michael March, Head of Innovation, there will be dozens of other experts sharing and educating about SLOs. Find the full list of speakers in this community-led event HERE.
