Agenda

19:05 - Yan Cui

Principal Engineer @ DAZN

[Applying principles of chaos engineering to serverless]

Chaos engineering is a discipline that focuses on improving system resilience through controlled experiments that expose the inherent chaos and failure modes in our system, before these failure modes manifest themselves like a wildfire in production and impact our users.

Netflix is undoubtedly the leader in this field, but much of the publicised tools and articles focus on killing EC2 instances, and the efforts in the serverless community has been largely limited to moving those tools into AWS Lambda functions.

But how can we apply the same principles of chaos to a serverless architecture built around AWS Lambda functions? Can we adapt existing practices to expose the inherent chaos in these systems? What are the limitations and new challenges that we need to consider?

Join us in this talk as Yan Cui shares his thought experiments, and actual experiments, in his pursuit to understand how we can apply the principles of chaos to a serverless architecture. A word of warning though, you’re guaranteed to walk away with more questions than answers!

19:40 - Pizza, refreshments etc.

20:00 - Yann Vigara

IT Infrastructure & Cloud Services Manager @ Utility Warehouse PLC

[Refactoring this old infrastructure team - Implementing a DevOps culture in a “legacy” team]

Most of us will agree that DevOps is more about the culture rather than the tools. Implementing a new tool is easy just follow one of the many tutorials, adapt it to your environment and you are mostly done. Changing the culture of an existing team a bit more difficult and there are not that many actionable howtos.

So how do you do this?

We will explore different strategies you can use to change your team and lead it to success.

20:45 - Networking, refreshments etc.

21:15 - On to a local watering hole that is to be confirmed.
