Creating Chaos: Engineering for the Unexpected
Every day we deal with complexity in our systems and multiple layers of dependencies. This complexity makes it difficult to predict when one service or dependency might go rogue for a specific circumstance during a delivery workflow. That's where chaos engineering comes in. Chaos engineering creates these "random" scenarios on purpose and builds resiliency into a system while increasing the velocity at which value is delivered to consumers. Shahzad Zafar will discuss his company's journey into chaos engineering, the principles behind it, how to plan for introducing chaos, and why a culture of DevOps is essential for it to succeed. Learn where chaos experiments should be run, how to use business metrics to evaluate results, the best way to permeate results to all of your teams, and how to scale chaos engineering across a larger organization. You'll take home valuable ideas about how to adopt a culture of chaos within your organization.
