GDG Cloud Austin is a monthly meetup for all things Google Cloud Platform. Our meetups range from having speakers to codejams and happy hours. We'll discuss building and managing scalable cloud infrastructure, containerization, Kubernetes, data processing, machine learning, software engineering, and more. Sometimes we'll even bring in speakers from other platforms or non-GCP specific technologies for some cross-pollination.
If you're ever interested in speaking or participating, please don't hesitate to reach out!
We have a special extra September Meetup for you. We're collaborating with GDG Austin to bring you a talk about Google Cloud Firestore.
Scott Leland Crossen from the Google Firestore team will start by covering Cloud Firestore at an introductory level, and then discuss the data model and rules language with a focus on how to develop, test, and use them in your app.
Cloud Firestore is a realtime NoSQL database offered by Google that can be accessed directly from any client. It has a unique data model and a rules-governing permission system.
As an undergraduate at Brigham Young University, Scott studied condensed matter physics with an emphasis in quantum computation. After receiving his second major in CS and launching a SaaS startup, Scott now works for Google’s Firebase Backend Infrastructure team. He enjoys backpacking, cycling and shining lasers at stuff. Interestingly, Scott also has an identical twin brother that works for Facebook.
p.s. talks from Google engineers are always good :)
This month we have a special treat. Brandon B. Jozsa, Senior Solutions Architect at Tigera, will be presenting a talk on Kubernetes deployment tool Helm 3.
Brandon has worked for large companies that include AT&T, Charter, and Red Hat. While at AT&T, Brandon championed the notion that AIC should migrate all of its core services to Kubernetes using Helm. This led to the introduction of the OpenStack-Helm project, and thus the Airship and Akraino projects were later conceived. At Charter, Brandon was the Principal Architect and core development lead for the SE Cloud Infrastructure team. Brandon loves hacking on all things Linux, Security, and cloud, but in his spare time he enjoys spending time with his wife Rachel and their two dogs Juno and Ajax.
Title: Smoother Sailing and Scaling with Helm Version 3
Abstract: What’s all this buzz about Helm v3 you ask? Helm users have been asking for changes, and the development team has answered by rearchitecting Helm in version 3. This technical session will cover a wide range of improvements to Helm that address operability, scalability, and security concerns that users had with prior versions of Helm. During the session we’ll help users create a library that will improve scalability, security, and overall workflow complete with example code.
Food and drinks will be sponsored by Tigera.
Looking forward to see you there.
