Julien Bisconti - Google Developer Expert for Google Cloud

Deep Dive: Chaos Engineering

Sub title: Automating Chaos Engineering with a Service Mesh and the Chaos Toolkit.

In this talk, Julien and Sylvain will take you on the journey of performing Chaos Engineering exploration and automation of a simple set of services backed by Istio, a service mesh provider.

Julien will first demo how you can degrade conditions in your system through the Istio fault injection API, with a very small blast radius to not impact users. Sylvain will then demonstrate how you can automate Julien’s work with the Chaos Toolkit to run Chaos Engineering experiments in a continuous manner while surfacing these executions for greater observability.

This presentation will be a good introduction on practicing Chaos Engineering.
