Prerequisite Knowledge

Basic knowledge of system administration and software principles.


This talk will cover the latest in availability and chaos initiatives, including a lot of examples from my experience at Netflix. Programs with names like FIT, NTS, Blue, and Chaos Engineering.

I’ll dive into things you can do to make sure your system just works. I’ll cover not only what to do, but why you do each one; the motivation for each specific system; what kinds of outages, problems or theories led to each system; and what each one tests and how.
