I’m a site reliability engineer at Google with a previous life as a functional programming and compiler hacker. I studied computer science at Portland State University; the University of California, Berkeley; and Wellesley College. I’ve been contributing to open-source projects for over a decade and am a former contributor to geekfeminism.org and the Geek Feminism Wiki. In my copious free time, I like to write, ride my bicycle, and play with my cats.

* Even Cowboy Coders Get the Site Reliability Blues

The principles behind building reliable distributed systems and gracefully managing changes in them turn out to look a lot like the principles behind building psychologically safe communities. In this talk, I'll explain some of the basic principles behind site reliability engineering and how they relate to feminist and social justice ideas. This talk assumes no prior knowledge of site reliability engineering.
