How do you scale to hundreds of Microservices? How do you survive the dangers of poison messages and cascading system failure? How can you keep your system healthy under continuous deployment.
The microservice architecture is a fundamentally more flexible approach to handling rapidly changing business requirements, but it is not all rainbows and unicorns. Message-oriented systems have their own weird and wonderful ways of failing.
This talk walks you through many of the failure modes you'll see in production, and provides practical advice for dealing with them. You won't be able to eradicate failure, but you can survive it!
