What is Production Engineering anyway.
Early career software engineers are passionate and motivated to learn new skills and create a positive impact on the world but many have not been exposed to the wider array of career options that are available to them. Production Engineering also known as Site Reliability Engineering and DevOps is one of the most in-demand skill sets that leading technology companies are hiring for yet it is not widely available as an educational option in university settings.
