Systemic Deployments for Distributed Systems with Adron Hall


For this meet Adron Hall will be speaking about practices around "Systemic Deployments".

Talk: Systemic Deployments

Abstract: Covering practices around deploying and maintaining distributed systems like Zookeeper, Apache Cassandra, DataStax Enterprise, Kubernetes, Kafka, and other systems. The talk will start with an introduction for the scope of distributed systems covered, then why, with a look at why we're working toward maintainable systems with an immutable infrastructure as code approach. The talk will include a short demo, plus plenty of time for questions.

Talk/Slides Link: TBD

After the talk we'll reconvene at Shawn O'Donnell's for conversations and refreshments.

Bus - Almost every King County Metro Seattle Bus, plus Community Transit, and many Sound Transit Buses travel nearby this location, most on 3rd Street. The location is located between Madison and Marion.

LINK - A great way if you board anywhere along the line, just get off at either the Pioneer Square or University Station stops (NOT University District stop). The meetup space is ~2 blocks away.

Monorail - You can take the Monorail from Seattle Center/Lower Queen Anne if you want a fun touristy ride. It drops you off at Westlake which is only ~6 blocks away.

Helicopter - If you've got it, you know where you're going. Not the most convenient though, since most of the helipads are blocks away and I think Seattle illegalized a few of the building pads. So you'd probably end up by the Seattle Space Needle, which in that case, take the Monorail!

Ferry - The ferry terminal is ~3, maybe ~4 blocks away depending on the zig zag one walks from the terminal, but rest assured it's super close.

Uber/Lyft - Sure, if you gotta, they'll dump you out close to the front door.

Taxis - What dis, new era?

Car Parking - So there's parking all over the city, but it goes the way it goes. However if you park in the building you can get a voucher from the SURF Incubator crew for $5 bucks (if it's after 5pm, if you arrive earlier than that it's probably $6,001 dollars or something).
