Building SRE from Scratch at Coinbase during Hypergrowth

A presentation at AWS re:Invent in in Las Vegas, NV, USA by Daniel "phrawzty" Maher

Coinbase is a secure online platform for buying, selling, transferring, and storing digital currency. This talk covers its journey from a small band of engineers working on reliability to a centralized SRE organization, and the lessons learned along the way. We dive into the processes that we created—both technical and organizational—that enabled us to quickly build a world-class reliability engineering group. We also cover what reliability really means, and more importantly, how we measure it. This session is brought to you by AWS partner, Datadog.
