Keynote IV: The Sadness at the End of the Happy Path

Resilience; most developers understand what the word means, at least superficially, but way too many lack a deeper understanding of what it really means in the context of the system that they are working on now. I find it really sad to see, since understanding and managing failure is more important today than ever. Outages are incredibly costly—for many definitions of cost—and can sometimes take down whole businesses. In this talk we will explore the essence of resilience. What does it really mean? What is its mechanics and characterizing traits? How do other sciences and industries manage it? We will see that everything hints at the same conclusion; there is no "happy path", failure is an option and resilience is by design. In this talk we will explore how.
