About the talk

We will discuss how you can construct continuous delivery pipelines that include chaos experimentation while simulating real-world load to test the resilience of applications. On top, we implement quality gates based on SLOs to ensure resilient applications are deployed into production.

Continuous Delivery practices have evolved significantly with the cloud-native paradigm. GitOps & Chaos Engineering are at the forefront of this new CD approach, with an ever-increasing pattern involving Git-backed pipeline definitions that implement 'chaos stages' in pre-prod environments to gauge SLO compliance. In this talk, we will discuss how you can construct pipelines that include chaos experimentation (mapped to declarative hypothesis around application steady-state) while simulating real-world load and implement quality gates to ensure resilient applications are deployed into production. All this - in a GitOps native manner. We will also demonstrate how you can include chaos tests to your existing CD pipelines without the need of rewriting them.
