The first private company to send humans outside the stratosphere didn't get where they are today without failing forward – hard. In this talk from Gremlin Solutions Architect Jacob Plicque and Terazo Software Engineer Finnegan Hu, we'll examine SpaceX as a case study in how enterprises can embrace failure and unlock new value through observing, monitoring, and collecting data, gaining the confidence, in their case, to launch humans into space. You'll learn how your business can lean into failure and adopt chaos engineering principles to propel your business to new heights.
