There are those of us that are motivated to build resilient systems, improve uptime, move fast and keep systems reliable. Then there are those of us who feel overwhelmed by our to-do lists and the features or projects we feel we need to get out the door.
The world needs more resilient systems because the world needs engineers in this for the long haul. We can create a better future for ourselves, those who come after us, our customers and our wider teams by focusing on building resilient systems. How do we make it easier for everyone to build resilient systems?
It is not easy to build resilient systems, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try. Engineers love a technical challenge. In this talk I will explain how focusing on the detection, mitigation, resolution and prevention of incidents is a great place to start. I will share my experiences using chaos engineering to build resilient systems... even when you can’t build your systems from scratch.
