Kolton Andrus is working as "chaos engineer" at Netflix which means he is getting paid for breaking things in production. We are talking with about how to improve overall system quality by injecting failures in production systems, about the idea of "anti-fragility" in the context of software and about how engineering teams of all layers can benefit from a failure injection infrastructure.
Amr Elssamadisy, founder of Agile Culture New York and author of the book Agile Adoption Patterns, shares his thoughts on why safety is essential to Agile success. We know that learning is essential for successful agility, and teams learn best through failure – but failure is inherently unsafe. The key to success is in making things safe. Without safety you cannot learn effectively from failure.
