We are a group of enthusiasts of cloud native solutions from Prague and we believe there is more of us out there! We want to meet you all. Let's build a strong, cloud-native community to share experiences, learn from one another and talk about our successes and fuck-ups. Let's get to know each-other in an informal space. Our talks will always be on point. No basic jibber jabber.
Our meetup is for techies, dev/devops people and for all who are interested in any cloud native related stuff (e.g. kubernetes, prometheus, linkerd, gRPC, help, envoy, etc.) and have some practical experience or just want to learn something new.
The meetup is built/made by developers for developers. No advertising, no headhunting! We don’t want to promote any concrete technologies or products just because they are trending right now. We just want to meet in a small “family circle” and talk about interesting stuff.
we hope you are safe and sound because winter is coming. We managed to prepare some exciting agenda for another online meetup - believe us or not - number 14! WOW! Let's start in 2021 with some cloud-native love❤️ and interesting talks.
Who will be speaking?
IVANA HUČKOVÁ - Frontend developer on the Observability squad in Grafana Labs. She spends most of her time working on the Explore feature that focuses on infrastructure monitoring and incident response. In her free time and during Grafana hack days, she loves to build monitoring solutions for various things, such as her sourdough starter or avocado plants.
ŠTEFAN ŠAFÁR - Senior CDN Engineer at Showmax. Štefan likes security, networks, monitoring and cloud-native software. At Showmax, he helps the CDN team do in-depth monitoring so they can spot bottlenecks and deliver more content faster.
18:00 - 18:40 Avocado monitoring - building observability for your plants
If you can't measure it, you can't improve it. And I have decided to start with the things that are dying the fastest - my plants. During my talk, I will walk you through the process of creating an avocado monitoring system with Arduino, the process of collecting metrics and logs with InfluxDB and Loki and visualising everything in the beautiful dashboards in Grafana.
18:45 - 19:10 Processing Akamai logs with AWS (Štefan Šafár)
Akamai is a content delivery network. We use it at Showmax to handle parts of the traffic to our users. In this talk we'll go through the options it gives you to deliver logs and we will show how we stitched a log pipeline together in AWS to make it all work.
Link to live stream will be provided next week.
