What we're about

DevOps Sydney meetup is about learning and sharing information on the DevOps movement - culture, practices and tools.

This is a group for professionals, hackers, managers, and engineers - from development and operations backgrounds.

## What is DevOps?

DevOps is a movement of passionate software developers and operations engineers who want to break down the walls and improve the relationship between between development, operations, and the rest of the business.

DevOps can be summarised into 4 key points (http://www.opscode.com/blog/2010/07/16/what-devops-means-to-me/), known as CAMS:

• Culture: People over technology. If you don’t have culture, all automation attempts will be fruitless.

• Automation: This is one of the places you start once you understand your culture, by stitching together an automation fabric that reflects your shared culture and understanding.

• Measurement: If you can’t measure, you can’t improve. Teams doing devops successfully will measure everything as often as they can… performance metrics, process metrics, and even people metrics.

• Sharing: sharing is the feedback loop in the CAMS cycle. Creating a culture where people share ideas and problems is critical. The other people in your team aren't the enemy - the problem you're trying to solve is.

June DevOps Meetup

Microsoft Reactor

🎬Doors open at 18.00 for a 18.15 start. 💃Main talk 3D Observability & Modern App Monitoring – Sushant Dewan & Matthew Zeier First there were logs. Then alerts and then metrics. In today’s world, how do DevOps teams manage monitoring and observability? How do teams manage observability and we pivot into a mostly container or serverless world? In 20-30 minutes we’ll share how we use “3D observability” - a combination of metrics, histograms and distributed tracing to instrument a real-time time t-shirt ordering shirt. Our audience can – in real time – order t-shirts and we will show real-time metrics, histograms and traces and how we use those to monitor a modern application. ⚡️Lightning talks (short 5-10 minute talks) 🎤Jay Liu – Migrating traditional applications to serverless 🎤Doug Allan – Kafka on Kubernetes Please let Michael and Lindsay know via Meetup if you would like to give a talk!

July DevOps Meetup

Needs a location

🎬Doors open at 18.00 for a 18.15 start. 💃 Where to now with Helm v3 – Kelly Griffin You probably heard about Helm and some of you use it heavily - despite the recent criticism around this tool. No longer a sub-project under Kubernetes, Helm is a package manager that provides an easy way to find, share, and use software built for Kubernetes. Helm removes complexity from configuration and deployment, and enables greater developer productivity. However there is a new and far more flexible Helm version coming – version 3. The Helm team have been working on addressing several key issues in Helm, such as the security model and big, unmaintainable YAML templates. These improvements, as well as some new functionality are all part of the alpha release of Helm v3. We will talk all about what to expect in the current alpha Helm 3 as well how you can get started. ⚡️Lightning talks 🎤Stefan Caliaro – How to Host Highly Scalable Websites for Free* via GCP/AWS & CloudFlare Please let Michael and Lindsay know via Meetup if you would like to give a talk!
