The concept of Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) originated at Google in the early 2000s, emerging as a novel approach to tackling large-scale system management challenges.

SRE was born from the necessity to ensure the reliability and scalability of rapidly growing online services. And it has since evolved into a critical discipline within the tech industry.

This origin story not only highlights SRE's roots but also its foundational importance in shaping modern operational practices.

In the early days of Google, the explosive growth of its services and the scale at which they operated introduced unprecedented reliability and scalability challenges.

Traditional IT operations approaches were insufficient for the company's needs, prompting a rethink of how to manage large-scale systems efficiently and reliably. Google's innovative solution was to create a new role that blended software engineering with IT operations, thus giving birth to Site Reliability Engineering.

In this guide, I'll show you all the tools you need to learn, where to learn them, and how to grow to become a good SRE!

I've published this post on FreeCodeCamp. Check out the article I published on Freecodecamp to get an idea of what you need, and how to access those tools + learning materials to succeed in the SRE field.
