Topic 1 - Welcome to the show. Tell us a little bit about your backgrounds, and some of your experiences that lead you to focus on SRE.
Topic 2 - SRE is still an evolving concept, and people are still learning about it. How do you frame a conversation with people about how SRE works? How much is technology-centric and how much is culture/process-centric?
Topic 3 - We’re all living in an unusual time, given the current COVID-19 pandemic. How do you see SRE changing as work environments change (e.g. WFH) or volume or change-rate is dramatically impacted?
Topic 4 - What have you found are successful communication and collaboration models for SREs engineers with their associated teams (or other stakeholders)?
Topic 5 - How well do you find different groups understand the concepts around error budgets and SLOs?
Topic 6 - If people are just now getting started with SRE, what are some early tips (or tools) that you recommend for them to have initial success (or avoid failures)?
