Improve resilience with automated chaos engineering

location_city Online schedule Nov 20th 03:00 - 03:45 PM IST place Zoom people 47 Interested

The transition into more complex systems is accelerating, and chaos engineering has proved to be a great-to-have option in our toolbox to handle this complexity. But the speed at which we're developing and deploying makes it hard to keep up through manual chaos experiments, so we turn to automation. In this session, we'll look at how automated chaos experiments help us cover a more extensive set of experiments than we can cover manually and how it allows us to verify our assumptions over time as unknown parts of the system change.


Target Audience

Chaos engineers, SREs, DevOps, SDEs

    The Paris Agreement signed in 2016 looks at climate change mitigation, adaptation, and
    finance. Several organizations have since come forward to crack the climate crisis and solve
    the challenges of decarbonizing the economy. We do hear regularly about organizations
    disclosing their reduction in carbon footprint, or their plans to achieve net zero

    There is also a shift that was accelerated due to the pandemic around digitalization of
    businesses. IDC has predicted digital transformation investments to reach USD 6.8 trillion by
    2023. Technology enabled by software is the foundation stone for this digitalization.
    Software needs storage, compute, networks to run and function. All of this consumes
    energy. There is hence an urgent need for the software engineering community to
    understand the impact of software on the carbon footprint.

    This talk will explore the impact and what steps do the industry community need to take to
    minimize it.

    Gunnar Grosch - After CI/CD, there’s now Continuous Configuration

    45 Mins

    In the last decade, the movement towards CI/CD has been transformational for getting value out to customers quickly. But in recent years, there has been new processes and tooling towards using configuration post-deployment, in the form of feature flags, operational config, or other runtime configuration. Continually adjusting the configuration to update and tune your code in production is a powerful, fast, and safe way to deploy value to customers. Join us in a discussion about how Amazon uses Continuous Configuration tools at scale to move fast and ensure maximum availability of our services.

    Prabhaker Panditi - Harping on Agile Mindset is Harming Organizations

    45 Mins

    The use of the term 'Agile Mindset' has degenerated into an implied superiority of those using the term against the ones being talked about.  The emphasis  on this ill-defined and vague concept of "agile mindset" is harming the organizations instead of showing them a way forward. There is a better alternative. This presentation covers the dangers of harping on "agile mindset" and the alternatives that can lead to better outcomes. 

    Some of these alternatives are backed up by science. While I will explain the science in detail during the presentation, here are some pointers to these alternatives: 

    1. Avoid all or nothing thinking. View agility as a continuum with multiple possibilities at each stage. 

    2. Focus on specific behavior and not on  mindset! 

    3. Bank on progress principle. Ensure tiny steps everyday. This leads to large outcomes over a period. 

    4. There is no 'one' agile way.  Explore alternatives and choose what benefits the organization most.
