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 :-)
