This slideshow can only scratch the surface of what site reliability engineering is all about, so you really need to do some additional research if you want to pursue this career path. Google wrote the book on site reliability engineering -- literally. The search giant was one of the first companies to employ SREs, and some of its best wrote a book called Site Reliability Engineering that you can read online for free.

Other resources that could help you learn more include the SRE Weekly newsletter and SREcon. YouTube has some good SRE presentations, such as The Keys to SRE, Site Reliability Engineering at Dropbox and Netflix: 190 Countries and 5 CORE SREs. And for the last couple of years, the annual Interop conference has also had sessions devoted to SRE.
