Production hates you. The machines, the networks, the very users you hope to provide a service hate you. This is a reality, and it makes software production a hostile battleground. At our roadshow Meet the Experts on Tour: Chaos Engineering, Russ Miles, CEO of ChaosIQ, and Benjamin Wilms, Senior Engineer at codecentric, will show how to manage and master the chaos in production using Chaos Engineering.
Drawing on case studies, personal stories, and code examples, Russ and Benjamin will demonstrate how socio-technical systems such as your DevOps teams can improve through stress, turning the pain of production to their advantage through learning loops, so that it is no longer about avoiding chaos in production, but rather about embracing it and thriving on it.


Benjamin Wilms works as a Senior IT Consultant and Developer at codecentric AG. His current focus is on are scalability and resilience in distributed applications. He regularly shares and discusses his ideas as a speaker at conferences and as an author of articles and blog posts. In April 2018 he published the Chaos Monkey for Spring Boot as an OpenSource project and is responsible for its further development.

Russ Miles is CEO of where he and his team build commercial and open source ( products and provide services to companies applying Chaos Engineering to build confidence in the resilience of their production systems. Russ is an international speaker, trainer, and author. Most recently he has been writing the handbook for Chaos Engineering for O'Reilly and having published "Antifragile Software: Building Adaptable Software with Microservices" where he explores how to apply Chaos Engineering to construct and manage complex, distributed systems in production with confidence. He also delivers public and private courses on Chaos Engineering and Resilience Engineering around the world and online for O'Reilly Media.
