About this Episode

One testing technique I heard quite a bit about over the past year is Chaos Engineering. One of my most popular podcast episodes this year was my interview Tammy Butow, a principal site reliability engineer at Gremlin. She shared how to make your site more reliable by using chaos engineering to discover hard-to-find breakpoints in your software. In this episode, I’ll share my previously-published interview with Tammy to help you prepare to make your websites more performant and reliable in 2020. Listen up!
