What we're about

DevOps includes the broadest range of applied IT topics. Everyone's experience matters, from a startup, to a struggling IT department, to the likes of Google and Netflix. We share experiences from beginners and masters alike. Presentations can be aspirational, a post-mortem, and everything in between.


Being a 'No show' or holding spots until the last minute then not attending is not only rude, but impacts the ability for other members (that can commit to attending) from coming if there is a limit. If this happens repeatedly it could lead to removal from the group.

Good RSVP/attendance etiquette
· It is courteous to accept or decline an invitation within a few days of receiving it. This helps with event planning and provides valuable feedback to the organizers.
· You should update your RSVP as soon as your plans change. If that's within 24 hours of the event, you should also contact the organizer personally via email (contact link under organizers photo) or phone.
· If you RSVPed 'Yes', you show up to the event. If you can't show up, change your RSVP accordingly and explain to the Organizer why you couldn't attend.
· If you RSVPed 'No', you should not attend the event, unless you change your RSVP to 'Yes' if space allows.
· If you RSVPed 'Maybe', you are required to change your RSVP to 'Yes' or 'No' at least 4 days before the event. You should change your 'Maybe' to a 'No' as soon as possible in the event you are not able to attend so that others may plan to go.

Note: Maybe's may be changed by the organizer to a 'No' to make room for others to attend.

Three Pillars of Reliability in DevOps

Accela, Inc.

DevOps is all about automation and process improvement, yet most of us still find ourselves putting out fires on a daily basis. It's not that we're bad at our jobs, it's that we need to take the next step for reliability. The 3 Pillars of Reliability focus on this mindset change, and introduce a new category of automation. Matthew Barlocker Bio: I'm a startup fanatic. Creating businesses, teams, products, and process are where I thrive. My background is in software engineering, so I prefer deep tech companies, like Blue Matador, my software monitoring startup. In my spare time, you'll find me flying airplanes, playing luckless board games, riding my side-by-side, playing the piano, or learning new skills and languages (sailing & Italian on the shortlist). Agenda: 6:00-6:30: Food and Announcements 6:30-7:30: Presentation by Matthew Barlocker from Blue Matador 7:30-8:00: Q&A and Networking

Kubernetes and the Three Pillars of Observability

Accela, Inc.

Update: We had a scheduling conflict and needed to move the Kubernetes and the Three Pillars of Observability to our July 10 meetup. Kubernetes is becoming increasingly popular. While Kubernetes can dramatically simplify the task of application deployment in containers, it also adds new set of complexity for the day-to-day tasks of managing application performance and gaining visibility into services. In the dynamic world of microservices, containers and Kubernetes, traditional monitoring solutions are no longer sufficient to provide needed visibilities to maintain healthy and happy environments and applications. Instead, we need insights from all three pillars of observability: logging, metrics and tracing. During this talk Matteo Rebeschini, Solutions Architect at Elastic, will discuss the three pillars of observability and demonstrate how the Elastic Stack can be effectively used to gain true full-stack visibility on Kubernetes workloads. Matteo Rebeschini is a Solutions Architect at Elastic, where he works with customers on architecting real-time analytic solutions using the Elastic Stack. Matteo has over 18 years of experience in the software industry covering different roles, spanning from software engineering to technical product management and more recently consulting and solutions architecture. Matteo has a passion for open source technologies and outdoor activities Agenda: 6:00-6:30: Food and Announcements 6:30-7:30: Presentation by Matteo Rebeschini 7:30-8:00: Q&A and Networking

Isle of Cats : Kubernetes Networking Revealed

Accela, Inc.

Kubernetes networking plug-ins and frameworks are necessary and integral to running K8s. But how do they work and what exactly do they do?This talk will explain how the most common framework Calico works underneath the hood including the Calico CNI plugin. Once we understand these basics we can then show some best practices and solutions to common gotchas with the goal of increasing the speed and reliability of your Kubernetes networking plane. 6:00-6:30: Food and Announcements 6:30-7:30: Presentation Drew Oetzel from Tigera 7:30-8:00: Q&A and Networking
