Matt Davis

Matt Davis

SRE Advocate

Just as at home with electro-acoustic synthesizer electronics as with site reliability engineering, I find joy in operating inherently chaotic complex systems. My expertise is a variegation of data-center operations, storage hardware, distributed databases, IT security, support services, observability systems, education, advocacy, and SRE leadership.

With degrees in music performance and composition, I have a passion for exploring relationships between the artistic mind and the operation of socio-technical systems: my research on improvisation and intuition spans both the arts and resilience engineering. These cross-currents of music and tech are reflected in both my talk subjects and my musical output. Seeking diverse ways to adapt and learn from our emergent universe is at the core of what I do.

My experiences have led me to talk about reliability and resilience at LISA, SRECon, Music City Tech, Disney JETA, RE:Deploy, Texas Linux Fest, DevWeek, and close to home at Southern California Linux Expo (SCaLE). My writing on music and tech can be found at https://www.sounding.com
