Mastering Chaos - A Netflix Guide to Microservices



Josh Evans talks about the chaotic and vibrant world of microservices at Netflix. He starts with the basics- the anatomy of a microservice, the challenges around distributed systems, and the benefits. Then he builds on that foundation exploring the cultural, architectural, and operational methods that lead to microservice mastery.


Josh Evans is Director of Operations Engineering at Netflix, with experience in e-commerce, tools, testing, and operations. For the past three years he has led an organization that creates, integrates, and evangelizes proven technical solutions and practices like continuous delivery, real-time ​operational insight, and chaos engineering to achieve operational excellence at scale.
