Ops in the Serverless

Ops in the Serverless

A function is deployed, and alerts go off. When our intrepid site reliability engineer responds to the change in availability, she begins the task of debugging and implementing new tests to catch the issue in future deployments. While the nature and complexity of computing changes, the need for specialized operations engineering skills increases.

In this talk, we examine the role of Operations, how it has evolved with the advent of new compute paradigms and what the future looks like. We’ll use the serverless platform to examine three critical areas of operational readiness of testing, monitoring, and debugging.
