Session Name: What Dungeons and Dragons has taught me about Chaos and Resilency
Chaos Engineering is thoughtful, planned experiments designed to reveal the weakness in our systems. GameDays are dedicated time to run Chaos experiments. Dungeons and Dragons is a Fantasy Tabletop Roleplaying Game set in an imaginary world based loosely on medieval myth. Jacob will use DnD to help you gamify Chaos Experiments to help build a Chaos Engineering Practice at your Company starting in your SRE Org.
