Cloud Computing Day with Kubernetes
Location: Sutton Center Level: Beginner

Chaos engineering takes the complexity of a distributed system and tests it holistically by simulating turbulent conditions and observing how the system responds and performs. The data collected helps you build more resilient applications.

Arun Gupta offers an introduction to the principles of chaos engineering and explores an application built using microservices deployed on a Kubernetes cluster. You’ll learn how to perform chaos engineering experiments, collect data, identify weakness, and fix the system and gain experience with tools like Istio, Chaos Toolkit, Kube Monkey, and other open source offerings, as you conduct experiments using them. You’ll walk away with fully working code samples.
