Plan for the night is...
6.30pm - Arrive - Drinks, Pizza and socialising (THANK YOU MINTEL!!)
7pm - Talk 1 - Ali Aktar @ applyingAgile - Cloud formation provisioning to create AWS vpc and computes instances
Applying Agile is a digital disruptive company specialising in Agile, java, scala, DevOps and all things Cloud. Partnerships with Ping Identity offering identity and access management services across AWS, AZURE and GCP.
Ali Aktar @ applyingAgile will demo using cloud formation provisioning to create AWS vpc and computes instances, clustering, configuration management with Chef and show how different tools and capabilities when combined together in an effective and well thought out way can offer a very powerful proposition to any organisation looking to use public cloud.
He will pose questions during and after the demo to critically analyse what's been demo'd.
-Is there a right way to do DevOps and Automation?
-What hashicorp capabilities could have been used to deliver the same?
-Is there an anti-pattern to DevOps and Cloud operation?
-If everything works as per clients requirements, is there a better way to do things using the hashicorp matrix of tools?
Be ready to be questioned by the presenter with some difficult soul searching introspection.
7.45pm - Talk 2 - Tom Wilkie - VP Product @ Grafana Labs - Monitoring the Hashistack with Prometheus
Prometheus has become the defacto monitoring system for cloud native applications, but for a while was eschewed by the Hashistack in favour of more traditional technologies. Thats all changing: Hashicorp's project are beginning to export metrics in the native Prometheus format, and many exporters exist to bridge the gap.
In this talk Tom will give a brief introduction to Prometheus, show you how to piece it all together, and give some recommendation on what to monitor and alert on.
8.30pm - Remaining beer, pizza and off to the PUB!
