When adding a new site reliability engineer (SRE) to your team, it's important that the new member not only has the required skills but also receives the proper training. This allows the new SRE to fit into the team and get up to speed as quickly as possible. In this course, you'll learn about the best practices for onboarding a new SRE team member, including methods and tools that can be used during the onboarding process. Next, you'll explore the technical skills that an SRE requires, including the ability to reverse engineer an application to determine the root cause of a problem. Finally, you'll examine the skills and knowledge an SRE requires when on-call, including those needed to provide support and manage support issues.

    In this video, you'll outline the process for onboarding a site reliability engineer remotely. You'll learn that more and more people are working remotely, and this is just as true for SREs. Onboarding a remote SRE represents a few different challenges compared to onboarding an SRE in your physical office. For example, the actual fact that the SRE is physically remote has unique challenges. FREE ACCESS

    In this video, you'll learn more about preparing for bringing on an SRE, their first few days, and getting them all trained up. But at the same time, you'll learn about the skill set they need to have. You can't take anyone and train them to be an SRE. An SRE must have specific skills that include up-to-date technical skills, strong customer service skills, and communication skills. FREE ACCESS

    10.  Reverse Engineering Production Service Calls
    5m 25s
    In this video, you'll learn more about how an SRE might find themselves in a position where Reverse Engineering is required. You'll learn that by far the most common scenario is when a customer calls and reports a problem. From the customer's perspective, the only bit of information readily available is that some feature doesn't work as expected. The SRE then has to take that information and trace it back to the actual problem. FREE ACCESS

    In this video, you'll learn more about the training an SRE needs to undertake to perform on-call support. This means they'll be responsible for handling pages or any other incoming request from customers.
