March 5-6 | QCon London Workshop

Christian Posta [] and Nic Jackson [HashiCorp] team up for the workshop: Debugging Microservices Applications
Building microservices applications introduces more complexity into our architecture. What we gain in speed of delivery is a new challenge: failure modes are harder to anticipate, discover and resolve. In this workshop, we introduce the audience to the types of failures that can occur, namely networking, application behavior/code, storage, etc and present a systemic workflow for prodding and exploring a system to detect faults and abnormal behavior.

This workshop is offered on the following days and times
