Prerequisite knowledge

  • Basic understanding of what the SRE role entails


Gustavo Franco shares his experience starting new teams, splitting and moving them from both technical and nontechnical standpoints. This is ideal for new leaders in charge of SRE wondering when it’s time to grow beyond a single team and how to do it. This is also very valuable for SREs who are interested to know what happens behind the scenes, how to influence such changes, and how they can help while avoiding burnout.
