Improve Automation to Reduce Toil | DevOps Onramp 2023

June 20, 2023

In the course of your day as an SRE or DevOps or SysAdmin, your knowledge and expertise are in high demand. You can’t do every task every person in your org needs you to do without the help of comprehensive automation. Automation can be tricky. Some systems aren’t built with automation in mind, but assume that a human being will be there to keep an eye on things and fix errors on the fly, and we can’t be everywhere when there’s too much to do.

Plus, you want to provide access to automation for the right folks and keep a record of when the tools were used.

In this talk, we cover some things to keep in mind when you’re building out your automation toolset and characteristics of good automation that will help you share your expertise with other folks in your organization:
* What automation is and what it isn’t
* Determining which tasks should be automated
* The automation lifecycle and building automation that works for your team
Build automation that works for you and gives you your time back!
