For our March meetup we are generously hosted by Pivotal at their offices next to Silicon Roundabout. Here is the draft schedule (subject to change):
6:30pm - Arrival, Drinks and Food
6:45pm - Introductions
7:00pm - 6 Best Practices for Continuous Delivery Pipelines - Diego Lemos & Derik Evangelista (Pivotal)
Years of observations from engineers in the field, trying to solve issues that frequently arise during the software releasing process, have resulted in 6 best practices for CD pipelines becoming apparent. Diego and Derik will talk through how these were found and how to implement them.
7:50pm - From Java Monolith to Kubernetes Microservices: An Open Source Journey with Jenkins-X - Ryan Dawson & Mauricio Salatino (Activiti)
Activiti recently transitioned from building a monolithic application in Bamboo to doing continuous delivery on Kubernetes with Jenkins-X. Activiti Cloud is an open source project, and they are building Java libraries as well as a range of microservices that need to be deployed into k8s. Ryan and Mauricio will showcase how they use Jenkins-X to build a range of artefacts, including maven, docker and helm and how they configure their pipelines to move projects from source to a running microservices inside k8s.
Mauricio Salatino (https://www.salaboy.com) is currently the Activiti Cloud OSS (https://www.activiti.org) Tech Leader working at Alfresco. Ryan Dawson is a core member of the Activiti team at Alfresco
