Here’s the talk I gave at Strange Loop 2017.
Operations Engineering is the application of software engineering practices and principles to achieve and sustain operational excellence.
The quote above is from a re:Invent talk given by Josh Evans at Netflix. The phrasing appeals to me because it explicitly links operations and software engineering. I also recommend the talk if you’re interested in the topic of operations engineering at Netflix. (For context: Josh is my manager’s manager’s manager).
