No one ever said devops was easy. Embracing devops means that owning a service is now more than just writing the code, but also deploying that code, monitoring it, and being ready to respond when things go off the rails.

In this talk, we will highlight real-world examples of how SLIs, SLOs, and SLAs can provide the structure necessary to deliver best-in-class reliable service, helping you understand what to measure and why.

But measuring performance is only the beginning: from there you’ll need to understand where your service fits into the bigger picture, how to map out and manage service dependencies, and how to leverage distributed tracing to prioritize work and respond to incidents.
