Chaos Engineering: Making Lives Easier!
2020-03-28, 18:05–18:10, Room 1

In this talk, Chandan and Harsh will talk about Chaos Engineering in general and how its application can make the lives of Site Reliability Engineers (SREs) easier and carefree. By introducing chaos one can make rigorous testing in a development environment similar to the production environment. For instance generating traffic, generating load on a database or introducing network latency. They will talk about Litmus one of the widely used open-source tools for Chaos Engineering.

Chaos engineering is the discipline of experimenting on applications in production/development in order to build confidence in the system’s capability to withstand any unexpected condition. As reliability is an important factor in the outages of the service costs. The introduction of chaos engineering in the CI pipeline helps to figure out the buggy code before shipping it to production and also decreases the chance of failures so that SREs can have a peaceful sleep at night.
