Past event

Learn the foundations of Chaos Engineering during this remote hands-on workshop where you will plan and execute experiments in groups.

About this Event

Chaos Engineering involves running thoughtful, planned experiments that teach us how our systems behave in the face of failure. These experiments follow three steps: plan an experiment, contain the blast radius, scale or squash.

Patrick van der Bleek & Roald Ruchti will lead a hands-on tutorial on Chaos Engineering, covering the tools and practices and metrics you need to implement Chaos Engineering in your organization. Even if you’re already using Chaos Engineering, you’ll learn to identify new ways to use Chaos Engineering within your engineering organization and discover how other companies are using Chaos Engineering—and the positive results they have had using chaos to create reliable distributed systems.

During this two-hour workshop, attendees will be broken up into teams of four, and each assigned a role that is critical to the Chaos Engineering Experiment process. You’ll work together as a team to plan and execute various Chaos Engineering experiments with the guidance of Patrick van der Bleek and the Gremlin Team.

What to Bring:

  • Laptop
  • Working webcam & microphone
  • Stable internet connection
