Get started with SRE together!

There are many ways to learn something new. At Xebia Academy, we're great fans of learning by doing and this SRE Game is just one of the ways we do so. During this simulation, you and your team will be in charge of a fictional system landscape. Select the right DevOps practices, choose the best architectural patterns and learn how to improve reliability immediately!

This SRE Game is perfect for...

This Game is perfect for anyone involved in IT Development, Operations or Service Management, especially if you are responsible for Reliability, Monitoring or Operations. Previous participants are, for example, CTOs, Product Owners, DevOps Engineers, Operations Managers, Software Developers, Incident and Change Managers, System Administrators and IT Architects. Specific prior knowledge is not required.

What will you learn during The Site Reliability Engineering Game?

During the Game, you will be asked to make some tough choices (together). For example, do you choose to invest in redesigning your architecture or do you focus on the implementation of new features? Will you solve major stability problems first or is it a better idea to wait for a new release? Are you going to ignore P1 incidents at your own risk? In this 4-hour game, we combine theory and practice to provide you (and your team) with a better understanding of Reliability Engineering.
