Many organizations see the need for chaos engineering as a practice to gain new knowledge about the system, but does not know where or how to begin practically applying it as it is viewed as difficult to get started with.
    Well-architected applications are designed and built to be secure, high-performing and resilient. You need to test your application and validate that it operates as designed, and is resilient to failures. In this workshop, you will learn how to apply chaos engineering using AWS Fault Injection Simulator, stress your application, simulate disruptive events, and observe how the system responds. This will enable you to iteratively improve the resiliency and performance of your system using architecture best practices.

    Towards continuous resilience

    Session ID: AR-02 | Time: 12:15 | Room: Theatre 4 | Level: 200

    Development teams have traditionally tried to avoid outages by building complex, robust software systems where making changes was difficult. These methods have a simple objective: reducing the time between failures. However, today’s business successes rely on fast delivery of resilient software in order to stay competitive. Modern methods take a different approach, promoting fast and automated recovery from failure instead of avoiding it. Continuous resilience embraces resilient patterns throughout the overall software delivery pipeline, including building, deploying, and maintaining the systems. This session highlights the most useful principles for building continuously resilient applications and provides examples to help you improve resilience.

    Learn how British Telecom are scaling up their GitLab usage via AWS to support flexibility, empower developers and speed up solution delivery from service design and developer perspective!”

    Session ID: PA-09 | Time: 16:40 | Room: Capital Suite 14 | Level: 100

    "British Telecom (BT) has been ramping up its adoption of agile software delivery mechanisms across multiple areas of the business over 2 years, with over 8,000 users leveraging their “on-prem” development platform called “Mobius”. As usage increased, BT were looking for additional flexibility as they prepared to scale across the Enterprise. The decision was made to move into the Cloud for many components, starting with an migration of their GitLab service to AWS as a pilot, to provide a known, supportable platform, and the desired scale. This also opened up the possibility for some of their third-party developers, who had not previously had access to their “on-prem” solution, to also benefit from the GitLab platform. Benefiting from the pilot the Mobile Network area of the business were able to rapidly onboard to the platform and establish their CICD pipelines of their own tooling and applications, whilst learning along the way."
