Improving System Resiliency via Chaos Engineering - Joseph Woodward

Advances in Cloud technology means systems are becoming increasingly more distributed and complex. Large monoliths are being split up into microservices, we're depending on more remote services and Functions as a Service (FaaS)/Serverless are becoming increasingly common. The very nature of distributed systems mean they're far more prone to failures than similarly-scoped monoliths; this makes predicting or preventing possible failure modes increasingly more difficult.

In this talk we'll look at how we harness Chaos Engineering, a discipline pioneered by Netflix, to better understand our systems, their failure modes and how we can use this information to improve system overall resiliency and reliability.
