Fallacy of Move Fast and Break Things

Learn to test in production safely.

About This Webinar

The phrase "move fast and break things" has echoed through the halls of tech companies for years. While such an approach may sound enticing in a software delivery context, it can lead to catastrophe if you lack the right processes. You might be thinking, "Ugh, process. Processes stifle innovation, slow things down, and introduce unnecessary hurdles." But good processes are the only way to move quickly while staying safe. This talk will explore processes that reduce your mean time to recover (MTTR) such as: • Scheduling chaos or game days to practice what to do when things go wrong • Setting up the right monitoring strategy • Testing in production You should attempt to move fast, you should attempt to break things—but only when you have the right protections and processes in place.
