What Is SRE from Anywhere?


It’s been a whole century year since we hosted SRE from Home! While many of us may still be working from home, we’re bringing the SRE community event back to explore how the year that changed everything is making us more resilient and how we’re building the future. ​


SRE from Anywhere is our follow up event from SRE from Home. This annual Site Reliability Engineer (SRE) community ​event focuses on what it means to be an SRE. It’s designed to create a forum where the community discusses topics that are relevant and purposeful in the day and life of site reliability engineers. Through talks, polling, and panel discussions, SRE from Anywhere will explore how SREs are preparing for the future and what we can learn from each other.  ​

SRE For SREs By SREs – and Which Soapbox To Stand On. 

SRE from Anywhere is all about the SRE community, so get involved. This year’s event has panel discussions, practitioner sessions, and lightning talks. So many choices! Do you have a cool idea, a set of tips, or an interpretive dance that shows how you and your team have mastered SRE? If so…pitch it! 

Don't have dance partner or feeling like your home office walls are closing in on your imagination? Below are some ideas to get your juices flowing.

Suggested Themes:

  • What changes made during the pandemic will become permanent practices as we get through 2021 and enter 2022?

  • Has your organization started to build a Platform Operations team, and how is that helping/hindering the SRE function?

  • NetSecDevOps…is there true alignment? If so, how did does it work? If not, what needs to be done to make it work?

  • How is SRE responsibility affecting decisions being made in the board room?

  • Platform operations
