Resilient and well-architected apps with chaos engineering

This post contains resources for the session Resilient and well-architected apps with chaos engineering

Distributed systems are complex and unpredictable, which can lead to undesirable outcomes. Traditional testing methods do not apply well for this complexity and makes assertions based on existing knowledge. Many companies see the need for chaos engineering as a practice to gain new knowledge about the system, but does not know where or how to begin practically applying it as it is viewed as difficult to get started with.

Well-architected applications are designed and built to be secure, high-performing and resilient. You need to test your application and validate that it operates as designed, and is resilient to failures.
