This was the first event I’ve attended by the F#unctional Londoners group and the venue at Skillsmatter.com was excellent.
Some of the biggest growing pains we’ve experienced with our microservice architecture at Jet is in preparing for system outages.
In this talk, Rachel will discuss Jet.com’s chaos testing methods and code in depth, as well as lay out a path to implementation that everyone can use.
I haven’t used chaos testing in my own work, but in the world of distributed services, it makes sense to test the robustness of the system to failures on individual nodes. Rachel’s story was quite compelling, even if her own developers aren’t all convinced of the attractions of chaos testing on the production system just yet!
