Hi! I’m Keri Savoca. I’m a technical writer who went to sit with an infrastructure/DevOps team to get some documentation done, and — long story short — never left.

I started Diary of an SRE because I wanted a place to write about DevOps, becoming a site reliability engineer, and the tech industry in general.

I got tired of having my portfolio live on an external website, so I decided to make my portfolio live within this publication.

To get in touch, connect with me on LinkedIn, follow me here on Medium (Keri Savoca), or hit the Contact Me button on the Diary of an SRE homepage.

Most of the articles in this publication are behind Medium’s paywall, but if you’d like to bypass the paywall, I post free versions of each article on Diary of an SRE’s Facebook page.

“Ironically, imposter syndrome is most likely to strike right at the point when you achieve success, says developer Keri Savoca. She describes imposter syndrome as a “defense mechanism” — albeit a misguided one that ultimately hurts us — that kicks in because we are averse to giving ourselves credit for our achievements, even though we’d likely praise someone else for achieving the exact same thing. Those who experience imposter syndrome are very quick to be hard on themselves, yet would never treat others the same way. So how can you unlearn these negative thought patterns and start giving yourself the benefit of the doubt?”

I recently published this full-color paperback book of Sicilian poetry.

I’m almost done with this book of Sicilian proverbs:

I’ve been thinking of writing something technical, too, but since I write technical things all day long, the non-technical side-projects end up being written first.
