Open Source Summit North America 2022
June 21 - June 24
The Open Source Summit is the premier event for open source developers, technologists, and community leaders to collaborate, share information, solve problems, and gain knowledge, furthering open source innovation and ensuring a sustainable open source ecosystem. It is the gathering place for open-source code and community contributors.
Parsons Fellow and Senior Director Jenn Bergstrom will be speaking on Chaos Engineering at this year’s summit.
Chaos Engineering is a strategy used by many in the technology industry to validate the resiliency and fault tolerance of their software and infrastructure as code solutions. However, Chaos Engineering is valuable as a tactic across more than simply the software and infrastructure of systems running in production. Chaos Engineering can also be used to test the security of systems and the resiliency of corporate personnel structures, processes, and tools. During this presentation, Jenn will walk through the history of Chaos Engineering and present examples of experiments that can be used to test an organization’s resiliency. Just as deliberate injection of failure states into an operational environment can have unexpected ripple effects, injection of failure states into an organization’s staffing profile, processes, and tooling can as well. How resilient is your corporate structure? Does it contain key personnel that are single points of failure? How can a corporation build a more resilient organizational profile without adding unnecessary expense and personnel redundancy? Jenn will talk about strategies to mitigate single points of failure within an organization without driving up cost.
