Chaos Katas

NOT ON THE CURRENT EDITION
This blip is not on the current edition of the radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the radarUnderstand more

Chaos Katas is a technique that our teams have developed to train and upskill infrastructure and platform engineers. It combines Chaos Engineering techniques—that is, creating failures and outages in a controlled environment—with the systematic teaching and training approach of Kata. Here, Kata refers to code patterns that trigger controlled failures, allowing engineers to discover the problem, recover from the failure, run postmortem and find the root cause. Repeated execution of Katas helps engineers to internalize their new skills.
