SRE Escape Rooms and Reinforced Learning

How we used SRE escape rooms to reinforce learning in the engineering organization at Webflow.


When I was on the Infrastructure team at Webflow (2017) we started a practice: SRE escape rooms.

How It Works: An SRE escape room designer creates some form of chaos in our acceptance environment and a group of SREs get to figure out how to get acceptance back into a healthy state.

It's been a great way for us to reinforce what we know and learn to keep our systems healthy.

If I ever get around to finishing this, this article will address:

  • A more in depth explanation of what an SRE escape room is (similar to what some teams call "game day")
  • A few examples of what we've done
  • What the science says about spaced repetition for learning
