To help Engineering and Testing teams meet the need, we’re launching our first ever Gremlin Chaos Engineering Practitioner Certificate Program!

Datadog on Chaos Engineering

As you scale your applications, remaining resilient to underlying network failures, resource constraints introduced by other applications, or spikes in traffic can become exponentially more complex, even with very thorough testing and processes. Chaos engineering is a discipline that encourages experimenting in production and injecting controlled failures into the system to understand how the system will react in such conditions and to improve its reliability.

Failover Conf follow-up: Your team and culture questions answered!

Thank you all for joining us last week for Failover Conf 2! We had a great turnout this year, with over 1,800 participants, 20 sponsors, and 9 amazing sessions. After more than a year of virtual events and video calls, we know that Zoom fatigue is real. We tried to make this event different by finding new ways to bring the community together and thinking of fun new ways to shake up the conference formula.

How to get started with chaos engineering (k6 Office Hours)

Chaos engineering and performance testing ultimately have the same goal: improving software reliability. But chaos engineering hasn't really been picked up by many testers yet. Nicole shares her experiences in running her first chaos experiments using k6 and New Relic. k6 Office Hours is a weekly livestream hosted by Nicole van der Hoeven and Simon Aronsson to talk about performance and reliability testing, best practices, and all things k6.

Fireside Chat with Jesse Robbins and Kolton Andrus Failover Conf 2021

Long before Chaos Engineering was even a phrase, Jesse Robbins was Amazon.com's "Master of Disaster" using intentional failure to help the company become more reliable. Kolton Andrus (CEO at Gremlin), sits down with Jesse to learn more about his early work with GameDays, the evolution of reliability, and where the future of SRE lies.
