"Monitoring your Kubernetes endpoints with blackbox exporter", by
Jim Sheldon

As Kubernetes usage has grown at Meltwater, so has our need for effective monitoring. By combining Prometheus, Kubernetes service discovery, and the blackbox exporter, we are able to provide a robust "probing" service for our engineering teams. We will share some tools we have written such as Terraform modules and Grafana dashboards, which give our teams visibility and control over their pod, service and ingress probes.


"A Guide to Event-driven SRE-inspired DevOps: The end of your monolithic release process", by Andreas Grabner

While software architects have broken their monoliths into event-driven service architectures, many DevOps architects are still building monolithic inspired release pipelines. This results in complex pipeline code, tight integration of process and tools, lengthy diagnostics sessions to fix broken pipelines and puts strains on the underlying resources that build, deploy, test and validate.

In this session we introduce a new approach: Event-driven Continuous Delivery and Operation Automation for modern DevOps! This approach decouples the declaration of processes for delivery and remediation from tooling. It uses an “everything as code” approach which includes deployment, testing, quality gate, observability, promotion and remediation definitions.

One open source tool which implements this new approach is Keptn which was heavily inspired by Google’s SRE practice around SLIs & SLOs. Join us, see Keptn in action and get inspired on what the future of DevOps tooling can look like.


About Jim:

Jim has been automating build/release workflows and managing infrastructure for the past 15 years. These days Jim is part of Meltwater's "Foundation Mission", building software and services for Meltwater's development teams.

About Andreas:

Andreas Grabner (@grabnerandi) has 20+ years of experience as a software developer, tester and architect and is an advocate for high-performing cloud scale applications.
