Site Reliability Engineering and performance testing with Stephen Townshend (k6 Office Hours #32)
What's the difference between Site Reliability Engineering and performance testing? SRE and performance testing/engineering have a lot of overlap. Where does performance testing end and SRE begin? And what does this mean for people in those roles? To discuss this topic, we have three people with varying areas of expertise: Nicole van der Hoeven (k6) is a performance engineer, Stephen Townshend (IAG) has recently changed careers from performance to SRE, and Daniel González Lopes (k6) is an SRE who learned about performance testing when he joined k6.
