What we're about

Follow us on Twitter: @DevOpsZH (https://twitter.com/devopszh)

Our meetup group is a community platform for everyone interested in DevOps. No matter if you are a front-end designer, backend developer, tester, team lead or system administrator – if you’re passionate about the DevOps movement you are welcome! We want to share experiences, new information and learnings. Our focus will be on DevOps topics ranging from implementing DevOps culture, DevOps in a legacy system or DevOps in Leadership to scaling DevOps, DevOps Enterprise, and ITSM and DevOps. If you’re in and around Zurich and interested in a DevOps Community, come by!

We do not want any sales pitches on our site, as we want this to be a healthy exchange of experiences and focus on the community aspect. For this reason, please contact one of the organisers before posting something on our dashboard. We will check if it complies with our guidelines and get back to you!

From Ops to Dev; From SLO to Quality Gate: Modern Observability with Dynatrace

Dear DevOps Community

I would like to invite you to another Online Meetup. I am very happy that Andreas Grabner shows us how to achieve automated full stack observability integrated into the DevOps toolchain.

Dynatrace R&D Labs are using Dynatrace as part of their DevOps delivery and operations processes. While many organizations are using solutions like Dynatrace primarily in production to monitor SLOs, alert on baseline violations or for root cause detection of production incidents, a growing number is leveraging automated full stack observability integrated into the DevOps toolchain.
Join this meetup where Andreas Grabner, DevOps Activist at Dynatrace, will give you an overview of Dynatrace’s Software Intelligence Platform, the OneAgent technology and it’s deterministic AI engine DAVIS. Andreas will then demo the benefits of having Dynatrace in your DevOps tool chain as it enables automated feedback to developers, automated quality gates for performance engineers, automated release validation for release managers, automated remediation for SREs and more.

Andreas Grabner has 20+ years of experience as a software developer, tester and architect and is an advocate for high-performing cloud scale applications. He is a regular contributor to the DevOps community, a frequent speaker at technology conferences and regularly publishes articles on blog.dynatrace.com. You can follow him on Twitter: @grabnerandi

After the talk there will be enough time for questions and discussions.

Jenkins as code for multiple teams (on-site)

Bleicherweg 21

Dear DevOps Community

I’m thrilled to invite you to an ON-SITE Meetup at Vontobel (Bleicherweg 21, 8002 Zurich, Switzerland).
I am very happy that Vontobel shows us how to setup a distributed Jenkins as infrastructure as code.

One-click installations may get you started faster, but they will hurt you in the long run if you are not able to reliably reproduce your deployed instance.

During this talk we will discuss why we ran into this issue and how we solved it. More specifically, we will go into design and implementation details of how we created an open-source Jenkins for multiple teams across Vontobel, while sticking to the following concepts:

- Disaster recovery being at the forefront of our design
- Every Jenkins build and deployment can be reproduced
- Read-only Jenkins in production
- Jenkins itself based on GitOps: Jenkins in production always reflects what is in GIT

We will walk you through our entire setup, from building Jenkins docker images to deploying Jenkins on OpenShift. How to install, upgrade and uninstall Jenkins plugins, how to keep Jenkins as CasC (Configuration as Code), authentication, and Jenkins jobs as code.

Improving CI/CD is a never ending journey, and therefore we will end this session by also mentioning a few things that we still need to refine.

Olga Diaz, Full-Stack Engineer @ Vontobel
I am a software engineer currently working towards continuous deployment, in the meantime I am a button-clicking expert.
My world is encompassed by Spring Boot, Angular, Ionic and the never ending framework saga.
I program in many languages (except German) by day, and forget it all at night with beer.

Patrizio Simona, Software Engineer and Techie at Heart at Oepfelbaum
Studied Robotics at ETH Zurich
Built drones for the entrainment industry
Brought live 2 E-Banking Projects for Swiss Banks
One constant DevOps

Don Kodiyan, Software Engineer at dsi engineering ag.
I’m currently working @ Vontobel on the advisory platform for our client advisors.
When I’m not writing code, I like to play basketball or drink beer to forget our flaky Jenkins builds.

After the talk there will be enough time for questions and discussions.
