Course Objective

The SRE (Site Reliability Engineering) Practitioner course introduces ways to economically and reliably scale services in an organization. It explores strategies to improve agility,cross-functional collaboration, and transparency of health of services towards building resiliency by design, automation, and closed-loop remediations.

The course aims to equip participants with the practices, methods, and tools to engage people across the organization involved in reliability through the use of real-life scenarios and case stories. Upon completion of the course, participants will have tangible takeaways to leverage when back in the office such as implementing SRE models that fit their organizational context, building advanced observability in distributed systems, building resiliency by design and effective incident responses using SRE practices.

The course is developed by leveraging key SRE sources, engaging with thought-leaders in the space, and working with organizations embracing SRE to extract real-life best practices and has been designed to teach the key principles & practices necessary for starting SRE adoption.


At the end of the course, the following learning objectives are expected to be achieved:

  1. A practical view of how to successfully implement a flourishing SRE culture in your organization.
  2. The underlying principles of SRE and an understanding of what it is not in terms of anti-patterns, and how do you become aware of them to avoid them.
  3. The organizational impact of introducing SRE.
  4. Acing the art of SLIs and SLOs in a distributed ecosystem, and extending the usage of ErrorBudgets beyond the normal to innovate and avoid risks.
  5. Building security and resilience by design in a distributed, zero-trust environment.
  6. How do you implement full-stack observability, distributed tracing and bring about observability-driven development culture?
  7. Curating data using AI to move from reactive to proactive and predictive incident management. Also, how do you use DataOps to build clean data lineage?
  8. Why is Platform Engineering so important in building consistency and predictability of SREculture?
  9. Implementing practical Chaos Engineering.
  10. Major incident response responsibilities for an SRE based on incident command framework, and examples of the anatomy of unmanaged incidents.
  11. The perspective of why SRE can be considered as the purest implementation of DevOps.
  12. SRE Execution model
  13. Understanding the SRE role and understanding why reliability is everyone’s problem.
  14. SRE success story learnings
