8:00pm - Chaos Engineering - Gabriel Cismondi

We can monitor our infrastructure health, we can try to predict failures we can even create highly available infrastructures, but what about chaos? If chaos is the only thing that can't be controlled, it can be generated and we can study and improve the reaction of our infrastructure to it.
