Keynote: Liz Fong-Jones

November 7, 2021

We are excited to announce that Liz Fong-Jones will be one of our keynote speakers for linux.conf.au 2022.

Liz Fong-Jones

Liz will be speaking about the ways in which we can cultivate production excellence. Taming the complex distributed systems we’re responsible for requires changing not just the tools and technical approaches we use; it also requires changing who is involved in production, how they collaborate, and how we measure success.

In her talk, you’ll learn about several practices core to production excellence: giving everyone a stake in production, collaborating to ensure observability, measuring with Service Level Objectives, and prioritizing improvements using risk analysis.
