Resilience in Action is a podcast about all things resilience, from SRE to software engineering, to how it affects our personal lives, and more. Resilience in Action is hosted by Kurt Andersen. Kurt is a practitioner and an active thought leader in the SRE community. He speaks at major DevOps & SRE conferences and publishes his work through O'Reilly in quintessential SRE books such as Seeking SRE, What is SRE?, and 97 Things Every SRE Should Know.
In our eighth episode, Kurt chats with Vanessa Yiu, Head of Enterprise Architecture at Goldman Sachs. Vanessa shares her perspective on enterprise architecture, experience in operating enterprise-scale platforms, chairing the first global SRECon, advocating for women in STEM, and how enterprises can embark on the journey of making reliability more important.
