Betsy Beyer and Stephen Thorne

Just published a great podcast interview with Betsy Beyer and Stephen Thorne of Google, coauthors of the incredible “Site Reliability Engineering Workbook”. We cover a lot of ground in this interview, including how Google learns from failures, what toil is and how good organizations try to fight it, and when LESS reliability can be a good thing in software development.

Betsy and Stephen’s work around publicizing and breaking down the myths surrounding SRE have been huge boons to our industry. Their writing (along with a few other Googlers) had a big impact on the Achieving DevOps book; we find their work and thinking incredibly helpful and influential. You’ll love it too!

A link to the interview is here – and it’s on the podcast platform of your choice. AppleGoogleSpotify, blah blah…. We’re on all the major platforms now, including AnchorAppleGoogleSpotifyPocketCasts, and RadioPublic. Please support the podcast, and we’d love to hear your feedback about the book!

Enjoy the podcast!
