Talk details:

Talk #1 by Hannah Foxwell from Pivotal

Abstract of the talk:
One of the tenets of HumanOps is that the health and wellbeing of human operators impacts the reliability of the systems they support. We all instinctively know this to be true but sadly there are still people in our community suffering from sleep deprivation, alert fatigue and burnout. In this talk we'll be looking at Site Reliability Engineering Practices through a human lens. What are the benefits for the engineer holding the pager? We'll hear stories from a number of organisations about what practices made the greatest impact to their team, and how they are healthier as a result.


Talk #2 - by Toni Stjepanovic from Swisscom

Abstract of the talk:
It is probably one of the most frequent questions in every Cloud Operators support ticketing system: "My App is slow, can you do anything about it?".
This talk will show how clients can collect relevant data from their Java systems and investigate it in case of degraded performance or other incidents. As Cloud Foundry does not provide application insights out of the box, this helps separating issues related to the application from actual cloud troubles.


Talk #3 - by Jeff Hobbs from SUSE

Abstract of the talk:
With the explosive growth of the application container market, it's easy to understand why some see Kubernetes and Cloud Foundry as competitive projects. Some Kubernetes users even consider Cloud Foundry to be unnecessary. However, while there is some functional overlap between the two, they ultimately serve complementary purposes that work toward the same common goal. By taking approaches that leverage both projects, organizations make it easier to manage their entire cloud environment. Jeff will present three reasons to consider using Kubernetes and Cloud Foundry together.


Talk #4 - by Jens Huesken

Abstract of the talk:
Many Open Source tools offer help in creating and updating Kubernetes clusters. However, with a growing number of clusters managing and keeping them up-to-date gets harder and harder. That is the focus of project Gardener. SAP uses Gardener to manage Kubernetes Clusters as a Service and lay the foundation for Kubernetes based products. Jens will provide more details on the project and show you how easy it is to create new clusters using Gardener.
