What we're about

Silicon Valley DevOps "svDevOps" is where Silicon Valley community members meet to discuss Dev and Ops and everything in between. We are a group of professionals (managers, engineers & hackers) and entrepreneurs that meet monthly to discuss topics related to DevOps and whatever it means.

Topics that seem to interest us are:

• improving the working relationship between dev & ops

• constraints within operations and dev within regulated environments

• helping developers get visibility into monitoring

• systems life-cycle automation (the line between systems & apps is gray and blurry)

• addressing incentive conflict between dev & ops

• tools and how they affect the kinds of systems you can deploy

• when/when not to deploy a 1-off system

• infrastructure standardization - how much is too much/too little

• feedback between dev & ops

Microservice Patterns by Chris Richardson
Needs a date and time

Intel SC9 Auditorium

Talk: "Microservice Patterns" by Chris Richardson of Eventuate.io (http://eventuate.io/)

Description: Microservices architecture creates its own complexity, so Chris has created a pattern language (http://www.sis.pitt.edu/spring/patterns/node2.html) to help address these challenges. This pattern language (http://microservices.io/patterns/microservices.html) can be used as a guide to decide if you want to move into microservices architecture, said Richardson. And once implemented, it can help solve the various problems that come with that decision. Join us for a talk about Microservice Patterns.

About Chris Richardson: Chris is widely recognized as a thought leader in service architectures, having been a Java champion for many years. He was the founder of the original CloudFoundry.com, an early Java platform-as-a-service for Amazon EC2 that was acquired by SpringSource. SpringSource, itself soon was purchased by VMware, which later went on to use the Cloud Foundry name for the open source enterprise platform service that everyone knows (http://tnstack.io/4nsxUw) today. Chris wrote the book “POJOs in Action (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1932394583/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_il_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=the0757-20&camp=1789&creative=9325&linkCode=as2&creativeASIN=1932394583&linkId=4f6c2b4c039d5b2d3d0a722942b68dae),” which describes how to build enterprise Java applications with frameworks. His next book, Microservice Patterns, (https://www.manning.com/books/microservice-patterns) is due out later this year.

Chris currently provides microservices consulting and training and runs Eventuate.io (http://eventuate.io/), which offers an application platform for “creating an open-source/SaaS platform that simplifies the development of transactional microservices.”
