About GOTOpia Chaos Engineering Day

GOTO is excited to announce a collaboration with the Chaos community.

Join us for a deep dive into one of the hottest topics in software. Despite the recent surge in demand and pressure touching tech industries like streaming services and online platforms, most people are still under the misconception that chaos engineering is all about breaking things in production.

Take a look under the hood of chaos engineering with the people that are actually practicing it. You'll get an introduction to this new technology and understand the ins and outs through a series of case studies and practical advice from practitioners in organizations ranging from banking and financial services to entertainment and media.

The day will move beyond the oft-used tropes of breaking things and instead show you how the brightest minds in chaos engineering are using the practice to learn and gain expertise at scale about their critical complex systems every day.

About GOTOpia

The GOTOpia conference format was created in March 2020 to make sure our community could continue learning from the brightest minds in tech remotely. Our goal has been to redefine what it means to hold an online conference, and over a series of GOTOpias throughout 2020, we landed on the most effective and engaging way to bring GOTO into the new state of the world. GOTOpia conferences are everything you love about GOTO, all delivered online.

Here’s a snapshot of how past GOTOpia attendees feel about these conferences:

  • 96% of attendees said they would attend another GOTOpia
  • 95% said the event either met or exceeded their expectations
  • Speakers, keynotes, breakout talks, networking sessions and the overall experience all received an average of more than 4 out 5

We've created a unique conference format that allows each speaker to deliver their talk in intimate sessions repeated throughout the conference. Stick around after each speaker’s talk for a crowd-sourced question-and-answer session, each one meant to open up fascinating discussions outside of the traditional presentation format.

It wouldn't be a GOTOpia conference without mind-blowing keynotes from legendary speakers. We’ll have keynotes throughout the conference to inspire and energize you.

Just because we won't be face-to-face doesn't mean we can't all sit together for some food and to share ideas. Join us for a panel with a group of speakers for an open discussion focused on one topic, all over some lunch and a coffee.

Start off the day with some stretching and a session of mindfulness. Our yoga sessions from past online conferences have been much appreciated by our attendees, and we've found it to be the perfect way to kick-start the day.

All the talks will be edited and packaged along with slides and additional learning material for your continued learning post-conference.

What past attendees thought
GOTOpia is an online conference like no other. But don't take our word for it, here's what past attendees have said:

"A great example of a virtual conference that actually felt like a conference, with interaction with real people – not just a bunch of webinars to watch. Kudos to the GOTO team."
Robin Moffatt, senior developer advocate at Confluent

"The combination of topics, sessions and speakers is really great. It is the essence of GOTO in an online format!"
Michael Repplinger, team leader at Dillinger
