Track: Chaos & Resilience

Day of week:

Failure isn’t a question of if, but when. Embracing a habit of introducing chaos on a regular basis strengthens systems. In this track we’ll hear from experts who have designed systems that became increasingly more resilient and reliable over time. Attendees will learn architectural patterns and approaches that didn’t and did work, with take-aways that can be applied to their own systems. Attendees will hear how chaos engineering, disaster recovery testing and other tools are being used to create incredibly resilient systems.
