Topic: Expect the un-expected: How to handle errors gracefully

Even though you tested your application perfectly, errors and bugs will still happen in production, especially if other services or databases go down or are under high load. Thus it is very important to see errors happening and to be able to react to them quickly. In this session we’ll introduce you to efficient ways for monitoring and logging for errors and show how you can handle them if they happen, covering deployment strategies, using intelligent circuit breakers, and gracefully reducing functionality. The session will give examples and recommendations so that you can quickly get started with implementing these.
