    Quandoo

    The next Berlin DevOps meetup will be kindly hosted by Quandoo! Talks start at 6:50pm local time. The talks: Renato Losio: Is serverless really the future of relational databases? (30min) From AWS to Google Cloud, the major cloud providers offer different options to run a MySQL or a MySQL compatible database on the cloud. The new trend is serverless (relational) databases that offer both traditional interfaces and HTTP API access. Can serverless databases be the future? Is Amazon Aurora Serverless really serverless? Jeff Knurek: Building Ephemeral Environments for Developers (5-10minutes) Providing developers a way to run their own multi-service environment in kubernetes is challenging. Jeff will discuss Armador, an open source solution that makes installing multiple Helm charts a breeze. Christina Albrecht: Fishbowl Discussion Challenges and success factors of DevOps implementation in IT service companies Russel Snyder: What Micro-Frontends mean for Devops (20min) Designed to allow multiple teams to develop the same app simultaneously, micro-frontends rely on core CI/CD principles and modern devops technology to be successful. In this talk, we will explore how this trend is already taking over frontend development and what it will mean for modern devops. Damnjan Jovanovic: Software CSI, a job of the future (30min) CSI SE, short from Crime Scene Investigation Software Engineer is a person able to identify, explore and examine the crime scene in the software. One who understands, and already experience all bad practices, anti-patterns, bad engineer behaviors, and repeatable mistakes. CSI Engineer acts like a Software forensic, he sees the crime scene of dead code, spaghetti code, fragile and dirty code and he tries to understand the reasons first, and then propose solutions.

    Native Instruments

    The next Berlin DevOps meetup will be kindly hosted by Native Instruments! We'll have 4 talks: two on Continous Integration, a talk on Terraform and collaboration and a lightning talk about SRE. The Talks: Using Concourse CI in a highly regulated environment - Jens Herrmann How we're using Concourse CI in our tech company with a banking license to support our DevOps culture and make auditors happy. CI as code, Lessons learned - Aaron Walker Using CI to create code pipelines is well understood. However, when it comes to creating the pipelines, reuse, version control and dependencies can cause problems. This can be overcome by turning all your CI into code, not just the pipeline. Learn real-world scenarios of how to incorporate these techniques into your current CI/CD capabilities Lightning Talk: System reliability that plant trees - Jason Gwartz Ecosia.org is the search engine that uses its ad revenue to plant trees. Search engine users have come to expect perfect reliability, which is challenging for a small engineering team. This talk will highlight how SRE practices have helped Ecosia define, measure, and achieve the primary metric - trees planted per second. Terraform, Collaboration and DevOps - Luke Kysow In this talk, I'll introduce Terraform by HashiCorp and live demo creating infrastructure with it. I'll discuss the pros and cons of using Terraform to manage your infrastructure. Then I'll cover how to enable collaboration through Terraform. If you're not yet using Terraform, this talk will show you why you should and how to get started. If you are, this talk will teach you how to further enable collaboration in your organization.

    Babbel HQ

    December DevOps Meetup kindly hosted by Babbel! • The Talks * Automating Jenkins Rollouts (Christoph Burmeister) Currently at idealo we develop a tool for bootstrapping our Jenkins instances based on a selfmade Groovy-script framework called "JRC - Jenkins Remote Configuration". That seems promising to us as now we're able to rollout Jenkins instances based on git revisions including configurations, plugins, tools, slaves, credentials and so on. This will make it quite easy to provide teams with their own build engines and helps with integrating work between Ops and Devs. * Docker Compose for Developing Micro Services (Can Kutlu Kınay) Lightning Talk * Serverless Babbel. Why and how are we using with AWS Lambda (Christian Requena) Lightning Talk * Root for All - Measuring DevOps Adoption (Schlomo Schapiro) This talk explores the connection between root access and automation on one hand and DevOps mindsets, cross functional teams and shared responsibility on the other hand. Based on practical experiences at Zalando and at ImmobilienScout24 the talk provides concrete suggestions for achieving true DevOps happiness. As a result you will know why in the end there is no harm at all in granting root access to everybody. • The Agenda 6:30pm Door open 7:00pm Welcome and Host introduction 7:05pm Talk: Automating Jenkins Rollouts 7:50pm Lightning Talk: Serverless Babbel 8:00pm Break w/ food & drinks 8:30pm Lightning Talk: Docker Compose 8:45pm Talk: Root for All - Measuring DevOps Adoption 9:20pm Drinks and discussions 10:00pm Door closed • Important to know We will not limit RSVPs for this meetup.

    Bonial

    The second Berlin DevOps meetup this year will be kindly hosted by Bonial at Warschauer Str. 70A! We will have 2 talks and 2 lightning talks. The talks: Building an automated Staging environment - Daniel from autobutler.dk The talk will demonstrate the challenges, difficulties, discoveries and joys of building an CI/CD for staging environments using Docker, Kubernetes, Github, Slack and SaltStack. From the opening of a pull request to a running environment, how our process at Autobutler is provisioning and running staging environments using containers. Introducing ArchOps - Hagen from LiquidM DevOps has failed us, it never caught on, it was always pushed upon by management. Almost by accident, we abandoned DevOps for something new. Research for prior art came back empty, so we decided to give it a name and talk about: rather than the developer, it’s the architect to also do operations. We are in our fourth year now and quite happy with the outcome. Today is the first time, we talk about it publicly. The agenda: 6:30pm Door open 7:00pm Talk: Building an automated Staging environment - Lessons learned, by Daniel Oliveira Filho from autobutler.dk 7:40pm Lightning Talk: Unit-Testing and DevOps, by Hani Zaidi 7:50pm Lightning Talk: How we use GitLabCi at unu, by David Rubin 8:00pm Break w/ food & drinks 8:45pm Talk: Introducing ArchOps, by Hagen Rother from LiquidM 9:20pm Drinks and discussions 10:00pm Door closed A note: We will not limit RSVPs for this meetup.
