Do you feel trapped in Project Plan Prison? Do you have to report to the Project Warden about meaningless milestones to give him or her the illusion of control? Is the project plan is based on naive and idealised assumptions, so that you have to dig a tunnel to escape from fantasy to do the real work?
Much IT work is too unpredictable to be described in detail in project plans. Things just happen, so we have to experiment. This is a natural characteristic of the Complex Adaptive Systems that we increasingly have to deal with.
While almost all organizations are undertaking a digital transformation and have a digital strategy, there is a huge skill gap to deliver the technology and update the processes in today’s IT organizations. According to Gartner “70% of employees have not mastered the skills they need for their jobs today, and 80% lack the skills needed for both their current role and their future career.”
What does it take to implement continuous delivery today? What is the recipe?
For years, all we needed was Jenkins and a few agents. Is that still the case? Can we keep up with technology and do continuous delivery as we did it during the last few years?
We bet that if we list all the ingredients, it will turn out that you haven’t even heard about many of them. Kubernetes? That’s an easy one.
Over the years of growth, the OpenStack community faced the challenges of releasing software consistently for a growing number of deliverables and a wide range of users with varying levels of experience. Many of these challenges have been addressed by automating the release process through a workflow familiar to the project developers…
Does running your application on multiple machines mean it’s highly available? Technically yes, but the term HA is already more than that. Take Kubernetes installation, if you install it on AWS, it’s not considered HA unless your master nodes are in different availability zones, not only on different machines. And actually, there is much more on that topic.
More and more companies are starting to adopt multi account AWS setups and it becomes harder to manage custom machine images. This talk will cover how Packer, in conjunction with CI tools, can be used to set up AMI build pipeline that can not only build images, but also distribute them across multiple AWS accounts in a secure way.
With every month Vault provider for Terraform gets better and better allowing configuration as code approach for most of the Vaults features. Hippo Technologies is a Terraform shop, and we were quite excited to able to apply Terraform power for Vault configuration. In this talk, Andrey will share our journey – what went well and what not so well, what you should consider before you start.
In the good, old times fairy tales have been used to distribute a common understanding of good and bad behaviors in an entertaining way. This talk will translate some ideas of fairy tales into the modern world of DevOps! Like Cinderella´s “The good in the potty, the bad in the croppy” this talk will focus on common habits on individual, team and organizational level, which will either support or harm your DevOps initiatives.
In todays climate the need for agility and automation in deploying and managing complex application stacks are more demanding than ever. In this talk Will is going to go over deploying complex application stacks (using Elasticsearch / ELK as an example), best practices, lessons learned and a demo (on his laptop).
Starting with AWS, the major cloud providers offer different options to run a MySQL or a MySQL compatible database on the cloud. A new approach is to rely on so called serverless (relational) databases like Aurora Serverless that offer both traditional TCP connections and HTTP API access. Can serverless really be the future?
Rob Bos wants to tell you a story, a story about an event that spanned 35 countries, reached 10.000 participants, involved 1.400 websites and databases, raised 8 disruptions on those websites and even caused Azure DevOps outages. In which we reached the limits of the cloud and still were able to spend only half of the budget.
