All fun and games until you start with GameDays

Norberto Lopes

If you’re going to break things you may as well do it like you mean it. During GameDays, you will be breaking your systems, documenting what goes wrong and figuring out how to fix it.
In this talk, we’ll explore how we got started with GameDays at GoCardless, and how we got people excited about running them regularly.
We’ll start by breaking things in staging environments, then explore the idea of deliberately causing chaos in production.
By the end of the talk, you should feel well prepared to experiment with GameDays at your own company.
