To improve the chances of creating, monitoring, and maintaining a successful software development project, site reliability engineers and all team members must be aware of which metrics to measure. They also need a working knowledge of both automated and manual testing methods. In this course, you'll learn how to manage and select SRE metrics and how various testing methods work. You'll begin by learning what metrics need to be measured for project management, software development, and APIs - examining in detail CI/CD, cloud API, and software project metrics, to name a few. Next, you'll compare both manual and automated testing methods and the goals of each. Lastly, you'll investigate automated testing frameworks and platforms, test cases and types, and best practices and pitfalls to consider.

    In this video, you'll learn about the importance of gathering metrics. You'll learn that as an SRE, your primary concern is making sure systems are up and running all the time. This means everything an Sre does is hyperfocused on that singular objective. Now, you'll learn why any Sre wants to make sure they're proactive in preventing problems from happening. FREE ACCESS
