Maarten is in conversation with Ramón Medrano, Senior Staff Site Reliability Engineer at Google. 

In this conversation Maarten and Ramón discuss how the principles and practices of Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) can be applied to the practices of Data Reliability Engineering and data quality management. They deep-dive into four topics - SLOs, lineage, debuggability, and how to operate as a team - from the book Site Reliability Engineering: How Google Runs Production Systems, co-authored by Ramón’s manager, Jennifer Petoff. 

As the book explains how Google’s SRE team builds, deploys, monitors, and maintains some of the largest software systems in the world, Maarten and Ramón’s conversation explores how data practitioners can apply some of the best practices, processes, and thinking, when it comes to data and systems.
