Chaos Engineering: Why Breaking Things Should be Practiced

Conference
Architecture

"Everything fails, all the time" this quote from AWS CTO, Werner Vogels, says the simple truth. So, how to prevent outages? Chaos engineering is the process of stressing an application by creating disruptive events: the aim is to create the real-world worst conditions needed to uncover the hidden issues and performance bottlenecks. In this session, we have a deep dive into availability and large-scale architectures and make an introduction to chaos engineering, and how to build more resilient systems. Don't miss the demo: we will leverage on AWS Fault Injection Simulator to break our microservices system!
