TestBash World 2022 - From SDET to SRE with Cristiano Cunha

In this talk, @cristiano.cunha takes you down the journey of how a central test automation team is responsible for:

  • producing and maintaining an automation framework
  • helping define the standards and tools
  • evangelising and training testers and teams
  • contributing to the pipeline definition
  • and ended up being converted into a full-blown SRE team.

We’ll use this Club thread to share resources mentioned during the session and answer any questions we don’t get to during the live session.

Questions answered in the session:

  1. What kind of experience background mix is the best for an SRE?
  2. what/who is SRE ??
  3. I get that devops is not SRE as its more development focus but on practical level what is SRE doing different ?? and Can a team have both Devops and SRE ?
  4. where is testing team (manual) lying between SRE. Automation testers and dev team ??

Unanswered questions:

  1. Reducing tickets it’s a dream of any team. Can you share a your own an example that was a success?
  2. What other teams do you think could be merged?
  3. If you’re not able to get experience as an SRE in your current organization, how would you suggest to get your training and getting hired?
  4. Given the product-centric approach on SRE, what are your thoughts in using let’s say Scrum in organizing SRE delivery?
  5. SDET to SRE is interesting but I would also be interested to know more about becoming an SDET (maybe seperate talk in future as im sure its a long conversation)
  6. I’m vaguely curious what happened to the people that left his company and if the other company may also change to have those same processes (having SREs)
