First newsletter: Chaos Engineering 101

In the last post I announced the launch of my newsletter, Production Ready. I promised to write one article every other week and share it with my mailing list. Well, I kept my promise and sent out the first article, Chaos Engineering 101, a couple days ago.

First of all, let me say that I’m really encouraged by the positive reactions I received from subscribers. Some even went so far as to congratulate me on the launch of the newsletter. Thanks so much!

From the beginning I was planning to share some of the newsletter’s content with people who haven’t subscribed yet, like the loyal readers of this blog. TinyLetter, the newsletter service I’m using, provides an option to show sent emails on an archive page. However, this “letter archive” leaves a lot to be desired, to the point that I’d rather not use it at all.

To make a long story short: Chaos Engineering 101 is now available on Medium. So you can read it – and hopefully enjoy it – even if you missed the first newsletter.

If you’re curious, this is what Chaos Engineering is about, in one sentence:

Rather than waiting for things to break in production at the worst time, the core idea of Chaos Engineering is to proactively inject failures in order to be prepared when disaster strikes.

As of writing this, Production Ready has almost 100 subscribers. Sign up today to get free updates delivered to your inbox.
