SPECIAL EVENT: Geek on a Harley, The Road to Chaos

Apr 19, 2018 · Brentwood, United States of America

The Nashville JUG typically meets on the 1st Tuesday of every month. But Russ "Geek on a Harley" Miles, CEO of ChaosIQ is making a one-of-a-kind trek across this country on his motorbike. I asked real nicely if he would make a stop in Nashville and give us a tech talk, and he said "let's make it happen!"

Modern software systems are made up of many moving parts that can fail, that are then built on top of and integrated with systems that can also fail. Throw into this mix the need for these parts to be under the stress of constant change and improvement under the increasing pressures of the business to deliver more and faster, and building systems that are reliable enough to have confidence in is a real challenge.

Enter the discipline of Chaos Engineering. Chaos Engineering is specifically concerned with helping you build confidence in your complex and rapidly evolving applications so you can embrace and thrive on the inherent challenges of the approach.

In this talk, Russ Miles will show you how to discover weaknesses in your complex systems and learn how to overcome them using chaos engineering. Employing a host of real-world examples and using the free and open source Chaos Toolkit, Russ will demonstrate how you can use chaos engineering today to tame your systems and enable them to thrive.

Do not miss this opportunity to meet and chat with this former SpringSourcer, techno entrepreneur, and personal friend of mine.

NOTE: We are meeting in the same place as usual, just on a different night.
