import "chaos"

Ana Margarita Medina at Go Systems Conf SF 2020

As engineers we expect our systems and applications to be reliable. And we often test to ensure that at a small scale or in development. But when you scale up, the assumption that conditions will remain stable is wrong. Reliability at scale does not mean eliminating failure, failure is inevitable. It matters when it impacts our users and it matters how we handle it.

Ana talks about the practice of Chaos Engineering and how we can proactively embrace failure as we scale our systems.
