• Melbourne Kuberbetes User Group May 2019

    Google Melbourne

    Welcome to the Melbourne Kubernetes User Group. Location: Google Office Melbourne, 161 Collins St, Melbourne VIC 3000 We have two talks lined up for this event where folks from ANZ and Momenton will be talking about their Kubernetes journey and capabilities on top of it. Talk 1: Canary Deployments leveraging KONG Presenters: Pawan Chaudhary (ANZ) and Phani Kumar (Momenton) We will show case how to achieve blue / green deployments for the Kong API gateway using Kubernetes. For the current version on Kong enterprise edition, Kong needs a datastore which stores key configurations like services, routes, plugins etc... A number of enterprises are adopting Kong as their API gateway and want capability to seamlessly upgrade to newer versions, whilst also being able to rollback to older versions of Kong in case of issues. This can be easily achieved using Kong and Kubernetes together. Talk 2: Kubernetes with Spinnaker and Istio at ANZ Presenters: Brendan Wreford (ANZ) & Tejas Cherukara (ANZ) A look at how cloud-native technologies such as Kubernetes, Spinnaker, and Istio can be used to deliver enterprise software and feature releases. Cloud-native practices enable us to scale depending on our needs, and uphold security standards with the use of Istio and control feature releases with canary testing and Spinnaker. A brief look at how these technologies help accelerate the speed to market without compromising on reliability or security. 5:30 Doors Open 6pm Start the event 7:30pm’ish Food / drink and networking 8pm’ish Close the event ** NOTE: ** We have limited seating capacity of 70 so RSVP soon.

  • Melbourne Kuberbetes User Group April 2019

    Welcome to the Melbourne Kubernetes User Group. Location: DigIO, Level 2, 452 Flinders Street, Melbourne, VIC, 3000 This will be a dual track event, where one track would be dedicated to beginners who want to learn about kubes and the other track would be for folks who are already using kubernetes and want to learn about advanced topics / use cases. Beginners Track: The Beginners Track is for people who are new to Kubernetes or would love to learn more about kubernetes. This track would take place in a separate breakout area. Topic : Kubernetes 101 ( Recommend reading on containers and container orchestration tools before the session ) The Advanced Track: In the advanced track, Michiel Kalkman from DigIO, will be delivering a talk. Topic: Open Policy Agent Description: We are going to take a look at policy management in the Kubernetes ecosystem. Policy is woven through all elements of a production stack. It is hard to manage, hard to test and is implemented differently everywhere. This adds complexity, overhead and drag to any project. We are going to examine the root cause of this is and fix it by externalizing all policy decisions using Open Policy Agent (OPA). OPA is a CNCF project that is a general-purpose policy engine with uses ranging from authorization and admission control to data filtering. OPA provides greater flexibility and expressiveness than hard-coded service logic or ad-hoc domain-specific languages. 6pm Doors open 6:15pm Start the event 7:30pm’ish Food / drink and networking 8pm’ish Close the event

  • Melbourne Kuberbetes User Group March 2019

    NAB branch

    Welcome to the Melbourne Kubernetes User Group meetup. Location: National Australia Bank, 500 Bourke Street, Melbourne. We have one talk scheduled for this meetup delivered by Scott Coulton, Cloud developer advocate at Microsoft and a Docker captain with 10 years of experience as a software engineer in the managed services and hosting space. Topic: Virtual what? In this talk, we are going to take a look at the two big virtuals in the Kubernetes ecosystem. Virtual Kubelet and Virtual node. Firstly we will look at the difference between the two, then look at why you would use either of them with live demos deep diving into the tech. Lastly we will look at how this is not only really good tech but if your business decides to use either/or of them they can save money on hosting cost by taking advantage of their efficiencies. 6pm Doors open 6:15pm Start the event 7:30pm’ish Food / drink and networking 8pm’ish Close the event

  • Istio in the real world

    ME Bank

    Welcome to the Melbourne Kubernetes Meetup. This meetup has a focus on Istio with two great talks. Brett Henderson from DigIO Over the past six months Istio has gone from a technology that hardly anybody has heard of to becoming a fundamental building block in the Kubernetes ecosystem. It has gained broad industry backing and underpins a wide variety of solutions and offerings. There are many announcements and news articles relating to Istio, but there are few documented examples of it being applied in the real-world. ME Bank are currently building a new integration platform underpinning their IT systems with approximately 250 business operations spread across 150 different service deployments. Come along to hear how Istio is being applied to address a range of requirements including secure communications, advanced routing, canary deployments, distributed tracing and observability.
