Worst. Vacation Spots. Ever.
These posters are extremely cool. But there’s no way I’d visit any of these planets. That poster and two others for the exoplanets Kepler-186f and HD 40307g were created by artist David Delgado and NASA visual strategists Dan Goods and Joby Harris. I love the retro feel to them! I’ll...

Notes:
Hire only coders
Have an SLA for your service
Measure and report performance against SLA
Use error budgets and gate launches on them
Common staffing pool for SRE and DEV
Excess Ops work overflows to Dev team
Cap SRE operational load at 50%
Share 5% of Ops work with Dev team
Maximum of 2 events per oncall shift per person is all that's possible
minimum group size of 8 people (8 people x1 location or 6x2)
Post mortem for every event
Post mortems are blameless and focus on process and technology, not people 

common staffing pool for developers and SREs (self regulating)
50% cap on Ops work (rest on writing code)
5% of operational load handled by Dev
excess operational load (tickets, oncall, etc.) always goes to Dev (self regulating)
no requirement for an SRE to stay with a project
goals for each outage: minimize impact & prevent recurrence
@45:20 NOCs are a stateful or non-stateful load balancer that add latency
practice
@47:30 wheel of misfortune; pie chart with observed disruptions
develop event timeline
get facts
create bug reports for all follow up work
