However, as we tried to employ the same pattern for the AWS Aurora RDS, we come to find this particular technology is not like the others. We like to share our goals with deployment of a database using the CICD process, what's been accomplished, and the technical and process hurdles we encountered as part of our journey.

How do we figure out which metrics are important enough to be tracked? What and when should we alert on? How should we build dashboards and what are their actual goals? Tip, you should not be looking at them all the time. At the end we should have a better perspective on how to make use of these constructs to build and manage our systems in a much more effective way. 8:10 - After-Meetup Drinks Sponsored by TBD

"ELK" is the acronym for three open source projects: Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana. Elasticsearch is a search and analytics engine. Logstash is a server side data processing pipeline that ingests data from multiple sources simultaneously, transforms it, and then sends it to a "stash" like Elasticsearch. Kibana lets users visualize data with charts and graphs in Elasticsearch. A. ELK-Stack Overview 1. ElasticSearch 2. Logstash 3. Kibana 4. Filebeats 5. Lucene Inverted Index B. ELK Case Studies C. Sample Project 1. Configuring Elk-Stack 2. Analyzing & Graphing Data 3. Running Simple Queries Bio: Shiju Daniel ( https://www.linkedin.com/in/shijud/ ) is a Java Developer who considers web design & programming equivalent to solving a puzzle where he has to create all the pieces and determine how to assemble the Java, Angular and javascript libraries to create the final product. 7:15: Main Talk: ci/cd, CR: Introducing Continuous Reliability into Your Pipelines Abstract: Automated workflows are the gold standard for delivering top quality products in an agile environment, but with constant change, comes constant risk. New code is deployed at faster rates, but Continuous Delivery often also means having to deal with continuous errors. How do we deploy better quality code with fewer errors as we implement CI/CD? During this talk we will introduce the concept of Continuous Reliability. How to integrate, implement and yes, automate quality measures in CI/CD pipelines. Code quality gates and contextual feedback loops are the building blocks that define the emerging practice of Continuous Reliability. Bio: Eric Mizell is a VP of Solution Engineering at OverOps, helping developers and executives create modern and reliable software. When not delivering technical workshops, Eric enjoys spending time with his family, wakeboarding and riding his Peloton. 8:10 - After-Meetup Drinks Sponsored by Randstad Technologies

Bio: Dan Speers is a Senior Solutions Architect at CloudBees and is a software development industry veteran with experience building systems from small tools to large enterprise-grade platforms 7:20 - Movie Time - Due to being unable to confirm a main talk, We will be watching the talk - "Don’t Build a Distributed Monolith" by Ben Christensen (Facebook, Hystrix; formerly at Netflix) In pursuit of ease and obedience to the DRY ("don't repeat yourself") axiom, it is common to build a distributed monolith instead of the intended decoupled microservice architecture. This talk will explore the common pitfalls, the pain they cause, and approaches to connecting microservice permitting the promised separation of concerns that allows varied architectures, platforms, languages, timelines, and incremental rewrites of a microservice system. 8 - Mingle, transition to after-meetup 8:10 - After-Meetup Drinks Sponsored by TBD
