- Docker Meetup - 21 May (Tues)
Talks for the month of May TALK 1 Speaker: Tali Friedman - Solutions Architect, Elastic Topic: Observability with Elastic stack Summary: The goal of observability is to give you the ability to identify issues or potential issues in a production system. The ELK stack offers you all the pieces that you need to reach this. This talk gives an overview about the observability story on top of the ELK stack. The ELK stack is widely used to store logs from operational systems. But we can do way more than that! Over time users started putting metrics into Elasticsearch and Elastic introduced Metricbeat for automated collection of metrics. Similarly, uptime data has been a highly valued type of data alongside logs and metrics. And then Elastic APM was introduced to add tracing directly to an application. We will go through all these pieces in the talk and we will also see some demos how those work in practice and how you can “observe” your production system with the ELK stack. Speaker Bio: Tali is an IT professional with 15 years of experience. She has hands on experience with software development lifecycle, DevOps, consulting and cyber security. She has worked with numerous customers in the region on optimising and securing their software development lifecycle and protecting sensitive data. In her current role she is helping customers to democratise data and gain business insights with the elastic stack. Tali holds a bachelor degree in Computer Science and Masters in Business Administration. Tali lives in Sydney with her family and pets. TALK 2 Speaker: Kelly Griffin - Field Engineer, Rancher Topic: Kubernetes on the edge with k3s Session: As Kubernetes continues to become the standard for deploying and managing applications, users are pushing to run Kubernetes in more places. Edge computing has seen a recent increase in Kubernetes demand and as such Rancher Labs built k3s for this use case. In this session we will cover Kubernetes on the edge with k3s but also explore more non-traditional uses of Kubernetes Kelly Griffin, Field Engineer from Rancher will give a presentation on k3s, With a 40MB binary footprint and an easy installation process K3s is the perfect Kubernetes distribution for working out on the edge. During this presentation we will discuss k3s architecture, compare it to upstream Kubernetes, and demo the setup of a k3s platform. Speaker Bio: Kelly heads up Field Engineering for Rancher in the APAC region spending time with Customers evangelizing Rancher, Kubernetes and the CNCF ecosystem. He spends time actively helping drive the adoption of Containerisation to help Organisations deliver applications, services by providing Kubernetes Management within Organisations in the region. Before becoming immersed in Containers, he has spent the last 20 years consulting for Organisations of many sizes around Technology adoption, Cloud Native services and product management. In his spare time, he enjoys getting fresh air and is always on the hunt for “old school” skateboards to add to his collection. Date: 21 May (Tues) Venue: Microsoft Reactor - Level 10, 11 York St Time: 6 pm (AEST)
- Introduction to CNAB by Scott Coulton, and 3 Docker fails by Tim Robinson
*Sydney Docker Talks for the month of April* Speaker 1: Scott Coulton, Cloud developer advocate at Microsoft Title: Introduction to CNAB's In this talk, we will demystify what a CNAB (cloud-native application bundle) is by firstly looking at the what problems the project is trying to solve. We will then dive into the spec and look at what it contains to understand how higher level tooling like Docker Compose or Helm will consume it. Lastly, we will do a live demo with duffle to build our own CNAB. Speaker 2: Tim Robinson, Director / Founder at Panubo Title: Three Docker Fails In this talk, Tim will share what NOT to do if you're intending to use Docker in production. Don't miss this one! Venue: Microsoft Reactor - Level 10, 11 York St. Sydney
