The containers are deployed and the builds are green. Yaml flows through the system, linted, reviewed, tested, and shipped with ease and regularity. Our intrepid SRE finds themself at a crossroads. The infrastructure is great but teams still struggle to maintain error budgets. These developers need help, and it doesn't seem like anyone else is coming to help them. We embark on a journey, to find out where resilience exists and how to make more. Join Amy on an epic quest into sociotechnical thinking, exploring ways SREs can impact reliability at scale beyond the bits and bytes that got us this far.
