Members of Google’s Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) team guide you through the principles of systems engineering. You’ll work in small groups to solve a systems problem, using ideas from distributed computing to build a sample system and gain practical experience with the issues surrounding large-scale system design.
Each group will have a facilitator to answer questions and guide discussion. You’ll leave with stronger analytic skills and with an awareness of technologies and approaches for large-scale design. Nontechnical participants will also leave knowing how to evaluate systems for reliability and suitability for high-availability environments.
Jean Joswig is a site reliability engineer at Google working on data center automation.
