DevOps/SRE Anti-patterns panel discussion

Anti-patterns are solutions to problems that are, usually, ineffective and carry high risks. Although they might appear appropriate and effective, the gains tend to be short-term. Their consequences turn out to be more trouble than they’re worth.

Like many practices, DevOps and SRE have their fair share of anti-patterns and it's tempting to adopt them. Projects might be under budget and time constraints or there might be there a lack of proper skills. When a quick and dirty fix is needed in an emergency, without any malicious intent, there is usually an intention to come back and do it properly, but time and priorities can interfere.

In this panel discussion, our panelists will explore anti-patterns when trying to onboard DevOps/SRE practices into organizations.
