DevOpsATL Monthly Meetup

We gather starting at 6:30pm for food/drinks and start the meetup around 7pm.

Space, food and drinks are sponsored by MailChimp (thanks!).

We have two talks planned for January:

Ops at Emcien - Eric Richardson

At a small software shop without full-time sysadmins, it is easy for devops to be viewed as an inessential time-sink or as operational overkill.  Eric Richardson of Emcien will talk about how a combination of Chef and home-grown management tools have made the analytics company's deployments easier and safer, speeding up development while lowering overall infrastructure costs.

Eric Richardson (@ewrcode) is a Software Engineer at Emcien, an Atlanta provider of pattern detection software for cloud and datacenter use. He came to Atlanta in 2012 after spending a decade in Los Angeles working in journalism and custom mapping.

Cloud Deployment Pipeline - Aaron Feng

In this talk I will discuss a cloud deployment pipeline I have helped build and design from the ground up for a well known client in the video game industry.  I will cover how the software is built, tested, verified, and finally released into the wild.  The tooling I will be discussing help streamline the whole deployment process.

The deployment pipeline helped to deploy quickly and predictably into the AWS environment.  The application is fully distributed, handles billions of requests each day and it requires a fast deployment cycle without any downtime.  I will also cover the evolution of the deployment pipeline and how we arrived at this final design.

Aaron Feng is the Founder of forty9ten, a software consulting company that specializes in cloud infrastructure and DevOps.  He has consulted with some of the largest companies in the financial, computing, and the video gaming industry.  He recently moved to Atlanta from the Philadelphia area where he helped organize various tech meet ups such as PhillyLambda, Philly Startup Hackers, and Philly AWS.

If you'd like to give a talk at a future meetup, contact the organizers.

    Thanks for coming out everyone! I was asked to post the slides from my presentation, but I feel a better resource is these two blog posts which my presentation was derived from: "Immutable AWS Deployment Pipeline" and "Avoiding Chef-Suck with Auto Scaling Groups"

    If you have any questions about my presentation, or the blog posts above, please do not hesitate to contact me.

    My first meeting. Technical topics were of interest. I'm new to DevOps and primarily a PHP developer now. I'm very intested in learning about the development/test/deployment tools in the open source community.
