CUSEC 2016: Reliable Software in a Chaotic World

CUSEC 2016: Reliable Software in a Chaotic World

What can learn from software with aggressive reliability requirements where human lives are on the line, such as spacecrafts? What can we integrate into the everyday systems we build, and how can we write tests for these requirements? Are cosmic rays really flipping bits in your machine? At Shopify we’ve taken some of those resiliency patterns to production—we’ll show how we think about resiliency and write automated tests to ensure continued reliability. This talk will introduce humbling concepts from the most complex software in the world, with a perspective on real-world tools, resources and techniques that you can adopt today.
