New techniques and technologies, such as microservices, containers, and Kubernetes are enabling developers to deliver and change code faster.  However, there is no silver bullet - failures still happen, and they can happen at any stage of the application lifecycle. Planning for these failures is a key aspect to ensuring you keep your applications (and your business) running smoothly.

In this session we'll explore planning for failures across the application lifecycle:

  • Minimise deployment failures with automated deployment
  • "Shift left" with automated testing and lessen the impact of each code issue
  • Recognise failures quickly with effective monitoring
  • React and quickly remediate failures via Incident management
