• Infrastructure as code & vanity metrics

    DOUGH is happy to invite you to a stellar evening of knowledge sharing, socializing and free food. This evening international speaker and DevOps aficionado Paul Stack will present two great talks. We will learn about both infrastructure as code and what of our metrics actually matter? - Agenda for the evening 5:30PM - Doors open 6:00PM – Can TypeScript really make infrastructure management easy? 6:45PM – Food and socializing 7:15PM – Mirror mirror on the wall, what's the vainest metric of them all? - Can TypeScript really make infrastructure management easy? TypeScript allows infrastructure code to have integrated testing, compile time checks as well as being able to create infrastructure APIs. This will show why a real language is more suited to infrastructure management than DSLs, JSON or YAML. In addition, he will cover how to build infrastructure that manages Serverless, PaaS and IaaS systems across multiple cloud providers. - Mirror mirror on the wall, what's the vainest metric of them all? You may have heard development teams talking about the number of deploys they make a day or the number of PRs merged a day. You may have heard marketing teams talk about the number of page views a day. What do these metrics even mean? Are they actually useful to the business as a whole? In this talk, Paul will debunk the idea of “vanity” metrics and why using these as a guide to success has only one outcome. This is a talk intended for all parts of an organisation to really help understand what metrics can do for us and why a metric may not mean what you believe it does Behind every vanity metric is a real metric that can help us understand the health of our company - whether it be the ability to understand our users or the ability to understand the value of a feature We just need to step back and think about what it actually is.. - Paul Stack Paul Stack is an infrastructure coder and has spoken at various events throughout the world about his passion for continuous integration, continuous delivery and good operational procedures and why they should be part of what developers and system administrators do on a day to day basis. He believes that reliably delivering software is more important as its development. Paul’s passions are the DevOps and Continuous Delivery movements and how they help the entire business and its customers. - Food and venue for this event is sponsored by WCOM AB

  • Application diagnostics with Azure & Application request throttling

    DOUGH invites you to an evening you don't want to miss! two really interesting talks by Maarten Balliauw, an experienced international speaker. Knowledge, free food and conversation on the agenda, hope to see you there! - Agenda 17:30 - Doors open - meet and greet 18:00 - What is going on? Application diagnostics with Azure 18:45 - Food 19:15 - Approaches to application request throttling - What is going on? Application diagnostics with Azure We all like building and deploying applications. But what happens once that’s done? How do we know if our application behaves like we expect it to behave? Of course, logging! But how do we get that data off of our machines? How do we sift through a bunch of seemingly meaningless diagnostics? In this session, we’ll look at how we can keep track of our application using concepts like structured logging and Azure Application Insights to make all that data more meaningful. - Approaches to application request throttling Speaking from experience building MyGet.org: users are insane. If you are lucky, they use your service, but in reality, they probably abuse. Crazy usage patterns resulting in more requests than expected, request bursts when users come back to the office after the weekend, and more! These all pose a potential threat to the health of our web application and may impact other users or the service as a whole. Ideally, we can apply some filtering at the front door: limit the number of requests over a given timespan, limiting bandwidth, ... In this talk, we’ll explore the simple yet complex realm of rate limiting. We’ll go over how to decide on which resources to limit, what the limits should be and where to enforce these limits – in our app, on the server, using a reverse proxy like Nginx or even an external service like CloudFlare or Azure API management. The takeaway? Know when and where to enforce rate limits so you can have both a happy application as well as happy customers. - Maarten Balliauw Maarten Balliauw loves building web and cloud apps. His main interests are in .NET web technologies, C#, Microsoft Azure and application performance. He is Developer Advocate at JetBrains. He's an ASP Insider and former Microsoft MVP.
