Cloud Native London, December 2020

Online event

Hi folks, Welcome to the Cloud Native London meetup - Xmas edition! Due to COVID-19, this meetup will continue as a virtual event. http://oicheryl.com/2020/03/17/cloud-native-london-going-virtual-and-thoughts-on-running-a-large-meetup/ Join us online to learn about Kubernetes and cloud native from this month's fantastic speakers, along with your fellow techies. 6:45 Kick off 7:00 Welcome 7:15 Rosh Beed, PA Consulting (Talk TBC) 7:45 Sharing Kubernetes Apps: Can we do Better? (Xavier Millot, Nectar) 8:15 Break 8:30 Moving to the cloud with evidence (Peter Parkanyi, Red Sift) 9:00 Wrap up See you there! Cheryl (@oicheryl) ======================================================== Sharing Kubernetes Apps: Can we do Better? (Xavier Millot, Nectar) What emotions do you go through when creating an Asana account? None: it's so fast and predictable that you didn't have time to feel anything. What about when installing Grafana via Helm? Excitement, initially, and then mainly uncertainty. Is the app secured? Why is it not working? Did I understand what that variable meant? Can I responsibly deploy this in my org? At Nectar, we went beyond sharing charts: we made it possible to share applications. With our SDK, publishers generate control panels for their Kubernetes applications that users can operate in a controlled, safe, and self-explanatory manner. After a demo of the SDK and client app, I will briefly make the commercial case for an App Store for self-hosted Kubernetes applications. I'm Xavier, coming to London from Washington D.C for the EF accelerator where I got a pre-seed to round to start Nectar. Before that, I was CTO at Hinge Health in the Bay Area. And before that, Computer Science graduate from McGill University. And before that yet, fanatic of all things electronic, flying, surfable, and ramen-based. Nectar's origin story is simple: SaaS often doesn't fly in regulated industries like healthcare where I worked. When we self-hosted our first Docker image for a mission critical third party app, it was an instant game changer. And thus Nectar answers the question: where does one go to systematically buy and sell self-hosted software? Where is the App Store? Off social media today. -- Moving to the cloud with evidence (Peter Parkanyi, Red Sift) Companies moving to the cloud are looking at a myriad of challenges ranging from compliance, through operational changes, to security. The journey to a more efficient development workflow can also be a rollercoaster, exploring different directions, and approaches, or even multiple cloud providers. When designing for outcomes, a principled approach is always helpful, and using the right kind and amount of monitoring plays a key role in understanding our own infrastructure, teams, and how they interact. In this talk we'll go through what a layered security approach looks like, the key tools that are available to help make evidence-based decisions, and how they can support changing our workflow and development culture bit by bit. Peter has been working on monitoring solutions for over half a decade, most recently at Red Sift, where he's leading development on InGRAIN, a runtime security solution not only for cloud native companies. He enjoys low level tinkering with systems, and is always looking for new ways to break and secure them against new threats.
