OpenShift by Red Hat @mhausenblas |

Michael is a Developer Advocate for Go, Kubernetes, and OpenShift at
Red Hat where he helps appops to build and operate distributed
services. His background is in large-scale data processing and
container orchestration and he's experienced in advocacy and
standardization at W3C and IETF. Before Red Hat, Michael worked at
Mesosphere, MapR and in two research institutions in Ireland and
Austria. He contributes to open source software (mainly using Go),
speaks at conferences and user groups, blogs, and hangs out on Twitter
too much.

## Talk

Title: "Troubleshooting and profiling microservices"


You’ve successfully build a microservices-based application and maybe
already have it deployed, running it in production? How about
observability? Performance and latencies? Do you know which of your
services is a bottleneck or drops request? In this talk we will talk
about troubleshooting and profiling containerized microservices using
the Prometheus/Grafana combo as well as OpenTracing-based tools such
as Jaeger (a distributed tracing tool). We review common problems and
patterns and demo how you can go about day 2 operations in a
Kubernetes environment, from a developer-perspective.

Speaker : Denis Rosa

Speaker and Developer Advocate at Couchbase, Denis is a NoSQL evangelist and has been developing software professionally for +14 years. He is a Java Specialist, AWS Certified Solutions Architect, a huge enthusiast of online platforms and an early adopter by nature.

Autonomous Microservices

Everybody loves Microservices, but it is difficult to make it right. Distributed systems are much more complex to develop and maintain, and over time, we even miss the simplicity of old monoliths. In this talk, I propose a combination of Infrastructure, architecture, and design principles to make your microservices bulletproof and easy to maintain with a combination of high scalability, elasticity, fault tolerance, and resilience.

This session will also include a discussion about some microservices blueprints like asynchronous communications, how to avoid cascading failures in synchronous calls, and how distributed NoSQL databases become valuable in terms of scalability and performance when combined with your microservices in a Kubernetes deployment.
