WORKSHOP: Resilience Testing: Let the chaos begin!

Co-Speaker: Geoffrey van der Tas
Session level: intermediate

Nowadays we build applications via the microservice principles to make our applications easier to maintain, deploy, test and change. These microservices can easily be deployed on cloud platforms. Multiple microservices together form one application. But is that application resilient? What happens if one of the microservices fails? What happens if one microservice gets slower? That is what we will do during this workshop. Together with you we will test the resilience of an application by creating chaos in the form of failures & disruptions, to see what happens to our application.
