Room F1 - Track 1: Talks


Engineers operating in a DevOps environment, quality engineers, chaos engineers


  • Inject chaos into local integration tests with Testcontainers
  • Create realistic test environments by injecting chaos into fakes
  • Spicing up load tests by combining them with chaos experiments
  • Automate reliability regression testing with end-to-end tests and chaos experiments

Introducing Chaos Engineering into Your Testing Practices

Chaos Engineering, in its current form, is primarily meant to be an instrument for sense-making in complex software landscapes. In this talk, we want to go beyond and show you how to use Chaos Engineering as part of your quality assurance practices.

By diving deep into concrete examples, we will show you how you can use Chaos Engineering practices to increase the fidelity of your test automation setup. We'll be touching on the following topics:

- Injecting chaos into local integration

- Creating realistic test environments at a fraction of the cost and effort by injecting Chaos into mocked components

- Spicing up your load tests with automated Chaos experiment execution

- Automated reliability regression testing

If you are writing code in a DevOps environment, expect to walk away with some ideas for making reliability testing an integral part of your delivery pipeline.
