Sarah Wells is the technical director for operations and reliability at the Financial Times. Her teams build operational and developer tooling and help engineering teams at the FT to support the systems they build, including coordination, communication and learning around major incidents. Previously, Sarah was a developer and tech lead for nearly 20 years. Building a new microservices-based system about five years ago led her to develop a deep interest in operability, observability, and DevOps—and learn a lot about containerization, Kubernetes, and Go in the process.
