CHAOS ENGINEERING w/ LITMUSCHAOS
📅 Date: May 10, 2022
⏰ Time: 10:00 AM PST
📍 Venue: Zoom Webinar
How can Cloud-Native environments continue to run smoothly as they grow and include more services? The only constant is change. We live in a world where technology is progressing at rapid speed in every direction. With technologies like Kubernetes, apps perform considerably better in terms of performance. We don't have outages as regularly as we did five years ago. But everything comes at a cost, greater innovation brings more complexity, making it a never-ending game to stay on top of application dependability concerns.
There are business-critical services and apps operating today, and Chaos Engineering has emerged as a compelling technique for improving the millions of applications in production. In this talk, we’ll take a look at Chaos Engineering in the CNCF ecosystem through the eyes of LitmusChaos and also observe a quick demo on how LitmusChaos combines adjustable contexts to automatically initiate chaos experiments as application states change. You’ll get a clear idea of how chaos engineering affects the larger community and also how LitmusChaos can be a Cloud-Native Chaos Engineering solution for the community.
