Chaos Engineering: Why Break Things on Purpose?

Network event

Link visible for attendees

In our next Kong Builders Livestream, Andrew Kew from QuadCorps Ltd is joining us to tell us more about the topic of Chaos Engineering.

With the move to distributed cloud architectures, it’s becoming more important to ensure that our platforms are designed for failure and that they behave the way we expect in these failure events.

Enter chaos engineering! The practice of injecting controlled failures into your system and then observing how it responds to the experiment. Join this talk where we will discuss the history of chaos engineering, why running regular chaos engineering experiments is important, and how you can incorporate this into your current CI/CD pipelines.

We will then apply this practice in a demo of a simple failure scenario in Kuma. The failure event will be injected using a chaos engineer tool called ChaosMesh.
