Video and slides for my talk “applying principles of chaos engineering to Serverless”

Hel­lo, just a quick note to tell you that record­ing of my talk at the recent AWS User Group meet­up is now live!

In this talk, I intro­duced the core con­cepts of chaos engi­neer­ing, and the chal­lenges that the Server­less par­a­digm brings to the exist­ing tools and prac­tices we use. I then looked at tech­niques you can use to resilience test your appli­ca­tion at the appli­ca­tion lay­er. I also out­lined a strat­e­gy to bet­ter han­dle slow respons­es from exter­nal depen­den­cies.

Please find the video with accom­pa­nied slides below.

Enjoy :-)

We will cov­er top­ics includ­ing:

  • authen­ti­ca­tion & autho­riza­tion with API Gate­way & Cog­ni­to
  • test­ing & run­ning func­tions local­ly
  • CI/CD
  • log aggre­ga­tion
  • mon­i­tor­ing best prac­tices
  • dis­trib­uted trac­ing with X-Ray
  • track­ing cor­re­la­tion IDs
  • per­for­mance & cost opti­miza­tion
  • error han­dling
  • con­fig man­age­ment
  • canary deploy­ment
  • VPC
  • secu­ri­ty
  • lead­ing prac­tices for Lamb­da, Kine­sis, and API Gate­way
