Fast Track to Chaos Engineering

We have invited Russ Miles, CEO at ChaosIQ.io and Founder of Russ Miles & Associates, to conduct a 2-day Chaos Engineering workshop. In this workshop you learn to build confidence in your systems behaviour and identify weaknesses.

NB! This is a 2-day workshop on September 5th – 6th. 


Are you ready to improve your resilience of your Cloud systems? In this workshop Russ Miles will dive into Chaos Engineering so that you can build confidence in your systems behaviour and identify weaknesses before they happen!


Chaos Engineering is a relatively new term for a practice that has been successfully applied by some of the largest and most complex production systems for some time. If you’re working with large-scale, complex systems (see: Microservices and distributed systems in general) then you will likely benefit from building confidence in your systems using the Chaos Engineering approach.


Chaos Engineering is an empirical discipline for defining experiments where the weaknesses of a complex, or even chaotic, system can be explored, discovered and eventually rectified. Most frequently practiced in Production, Chaos Engineering helps you learn about your system so that it can be continuously improved in the face of current and future conditions.​


Target Audience

The target audience is anyone responsible for the reliability of their production systems, and is looking to establish resilient systems to meet that need. The audience is typically made up of the following:

  • Those applying or considering SRE or DevOps practices where collective ownership of the runtime security and reliability of a system is planned or present.
  • Those concerned with being more proactive in exploring the reliability of their systems by establishing resilience practices.
  • The audience is usually technically able developers or system administrators.


Attendees must bring a PC and an installation of Python 3.5+ is a must.

Speaker Bio

Russ Miles is CEO of ChaosIQ.io where he and his team build commercial and open source (ChaosToolkit.org) products and provide services to companies applying Chaos Engineering to build confidence in their Cloud Native, Microservice-based systems on Pivotal Cloud Foundry, Kubernetes and more.


Russ’ experiences covers almost every facet of software delivery having worked across many different domains including Financial Services, Publishing, Defence, Insurance and Search. With over 16 years experience of consultancy, coaching and training, Russ helps to change all facets of the software delivery process in order to remove unnecessary and costly complexity in everything from developer skills and practices, through applying the right processes for the job at hand, to ensuring that the right change is delivered, be it through software or otherwise.


Russ an international speaker on techniques for achieving the delivery of valuable software as well as a published author, most recently of “Head First Software Development”. Further, he is also author of “Antifragile Software”, “Antifragile Software: Building Adaptable Software with Microservices” where he explores how to apply Chaos Engineering to construct and manage complex, distributed systems in production with confidence.
