The practice of Chaos Engineering is on the rise, as evidenced by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation declaring it as one of the trending technologies for 2021. Many changes will happen in this area in 2021, starting with increasing adoption of it. The LitmusChaos project was one of the early Chaos Engineering projects; it was started with the goal of providing the complete toolset to adopt chaos engineering on the Kubernetes platform and cloud native applications.

The growth of the LitmusChaos community, both in terms of usage and contributions from various individual contributors and companies, is further evidence of adoption. Chaos Engineering is not a new concept, but cloud native Chaos Engineering is. There are various thoughts emerging in this space that need to be heard by the community. We at MayaData realized that a vendor-neutral chaos-specific conference will benefit the chaos community. So, we helped found a carnival-like conference for chaos, called “Chaos Carnival.”

Not surprisingly, this conference received an amazing response and the list of talks are of high quality, covering all aspects of the practice — such as Basics of Chaos, Observability, real adoption stories, Chaos-GitOps and Chaos Culture.

The virtual conference goes live on Feb. 10, 2021, with the keynote from Adrian Cockcroft of Amazon Web Services. The conference will be hosted on the AirMeet platform, which will give a great experience for both speakers and attendees. The entire conference will be livestreamed on YouTube. Chaos Carnival will also host a boot camp on both days, where chaos practitioners and enthusiasts can participate in live tutorials for chaos engineering on Kafka and Percona.

Registration is free and open all the way through the conference.
