Resilience engineering for software people


As an SRE or Ops person, the lessons of resilience engineering and it’s related fields can help you better understand and support the complex systems you work with. But you shouldn’t have to wade through dozens or hundreds of pages of academic materials and their sources in order to start learning about resilience engineering. I’ve done the legwork to gather these resources, both ones I found and those suggested by others, so that you can start applying the lessons from the research right away.

Each week I’ll take you along on my journey as I scour the internet to learn more about resilience, whether that is in systems, technology, or people. We’ll explore the research through the lens of what it means for us as creators, maintainers, and operators of complex software systems.
