Location image of event venue


Mark Abrahams and Geoffrey van der Tas have been doing a Workshop on Resilience Testing. During this meetup they will demonstrate their work. This will be the testrun of the enhanced version of "Resilience Testing a Monolith" and an opportunity for them to get feedback.

A resilient service: is a stable & reliable service, has high availability, and does not compromise the integrity of the service or the consistency of the data. But how to test this?

That is what we will do during this Meetup. Together with you we will test the resilience of an Monolith Application Server by creating chaos in the form of failures & disruptions, to see what happens to our application.

During this workshop we will tell you more about:

Main statement: Resilience, Stress & Performance test your Monolith Application Server!
