Before joining the group or attending any of our sessions please make sure to review our Code of Conduct (https://bit.ly/2uzRRvz).
The Azure Sydney User Group is here to help Sydney developers, engineers, architects and everyone in between better understand and benefit from the Microsoft Azure public cloud. We encourage all our members to present and aim to spread our sessions across the breadth of Azure, talking on both Developer and IT Pro topics.
A Kubernetes cluster requires compute resources to run applications and these resources may need to increase or decrease depending on the application requirements. Kubernetes provides a built-in auto-scaling capability, but it's limited to metrics internal to the cluster, and it's complex to extend. KEDA comes in to fill this gap, it allows scaling workloads based on metrics that are outside of the cluster, like the length of a message queue.
Join us to learn more on how to build a complete and intuitive model lifecycle management experience alongside integrating with Azure DevOps.
We'll be hosting again on Teams, so if you'd like to join us, here's how you can - https://bit.ly/AzureSydneyUG-JoinUs - Please join our Teams tenant at least 24 hours prior to the event to avoid last minute challenges!
Our schedule for the evening currently looks like this:
5:30 - 5:35pm - Event Kick Off with BYOD (Bring Your Own Drink)!
5:35 - 5:55pm - What's new in Azure - Sam Alavi (Telstra Purple)
6:00 - 7:00pm - KEDA, the Kubernetes Event Driven Autoscaler - Emad Alashi (Telstra Purple)
Main Session: KEDA, the Kubernetes Event Driven Autoscaler
Event-driven applications are a key pattern for cloud-native applications, and KEDA allows any Kubernetes workload to benefit from the event-driven architecture model by elastic provisioning of capacity without the need to manage the infrastructure, and intelligently scale an event-driven application hosted in Kubernetes.
In this session learn what KEDA is, how it works, how to use it to scale a Kubernetes workloads, and experience through a demo how it fits nicely with Azure AKS and virtual kubelets.
Emad Alashi is a software developer whose main interest is in web development, Software Architecture, Software Management, and the human interaction caught in between.
He has been working with Azure since its early days. His focus has been specifically on modern architecture driven by the power of the cloud, utilising the right solution with the right services for the right problem, from Serverless and FaaS, to containers and Kubernetes.
He presents in many events and conferences, including Microsoft Ignite Australia, NDC Sydney, and in local user groups and code camps like Vic.Net, Azure Meetup, Alt.Net.
Emad is 4-times ASP.NET MVP, and currently works as a Lead Consultant at Telstra Purple, he can be found on twitter @emadashi, or on his Twitch stream emadashi
