We invite you to the free Webinar: Building a culture of chaos.

The webinar will take place on September 13th, 2022. Start at 19:30 (GMT+3).

Chaos engineering, popularized by Netflix, is an approach to building scalable, resilient microservices systems through destructive experiments, but what other impacts does it have? How can adopting chaos engineering change organizational culture? This talk explores the parallels between modern distributed architectures and the unpredictable challenges of the modern world, and how approaches like chaos engineering help organizations deal with both.

Chaos engineering is a powerful approach for building resilience in distributed, microservice systems. This talk explores how that works and how this approach benefits organizations as whole.
