It doesn’t matter how beautiful, loosely coupled, scalable, highly concurrent, non-blocking, responsive and performant your application is––if it isn't running, then it's 100% useless. Without resilience, nothing else matters.
Most of you understand what the word resilience means, at least superficially, but way too many lack a deeper understanding of what it really means in the context of the system that you are working on now. Jonas finds it really sad to see, since understanding and managing failure is more important today than ever. Outages are incredibly costly—for many definitions of cost—and can sometimes take down whole businesses.
In this talk you will explore the essence of resilience. What does it really mean? What is its mechanics and characterizing traits? How do other sciences and industries manage it, and what can we learn from that? You will learn that everything hints at the same conclusion; that failure is inevitable and needs to be embraced, and that resilience is by design.
