Production hates you. The machines, the networks, the very users you hope to provide a service hate you. This is reality, and it makes production a hostile battle ground. In this workshop Russ Miles (CEO of ChaosIQ) and Benjamin Wilms (Senior Developer & Chaos Engineer at codecentric) will talk about how to turn this pain to your advantage.
Many open questions cannot be answered by simple unit or integration tests. This is where chaos engineering comes into play. It helps us to become master of chaos and please do not claim that you are not in chaos! There is a whole industry that sells us ticket systems with which we can document chaos.
In this workshop we will approach the topic of Chaos Engineering in several steps, you will learn where and why it was created and which companies have already achieved great success with it. With many practical examples you will learn how to carry out first controlled experiments with simple Linux tools. After the basics we will approach the automation of chaos experiments and I will introduce you to some useful tools like the Chaos Toolkit or the Chaos Monkey for Spring Boot.
