• CI/CD with Kubernetes and Helm umbrella chart

    Tikal's office

    Helm has recently become de facto standard for managing micro services versions and dependencies. At this sessiony Valdimir Stukarov & Yuval Dror, Anodot, we will present our journey from managing homemade kubernetes scripts to a complete CD based on helm. We will show how git feature branch workflow is implemented utilizing helm umbrella chart for managing versions across different environments, separating infrastructure from code and to give us a good visibility on product release lifecycle. We will discuss limitations and the issues that we have encountered along the way. ** To ensure your participation, please fill out this form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeZqsm9le0RHyiQ34lKi6X3jB3bfOFYQQ4cAD4iowUykBL8kA/viewform?usp=pp_url&entry.801673747=CI/CD+with+Kubernetes+and+Helm Hope to see you all, Tikal Team #devops

  • Who Moved My Data?

    Tikal's office

    Building Production Grade Data Science with Data Version Control. AI is eating the world...is old news. AI is no longer a proof of concept, and must be held to engineering standards. Companies that aren’t able to scale up their machine learning operations will lose to those who can. The tools of the future will handle the dirty work so you can focus on your product, while retaining the ability to scale your organization easily. Software engineering has accumulated wisdom and tools to handle these issues, and we need to utilize equivalent tools that are designed for the data science workflow. In this talk, we will give an overview of the data science workflow, and focus on the challenge of reproducibility and versioning. We will present DVC, an open source tool built to handle these issues in data science projects. We will explain the simple operating principles of the tool, and the benefits gained from using it. The second part of the event will be a 90 minute workshop. You will create a simple machine learning project, based on the tutorial we created in DAGsHub.com. This tutorial showcases the main features of DVC to create a versioned and reproducible data science project. ** To ensure your participation, please fill out this form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeZqsm9le0RHyiQ34lKi6X3jB3bfOFYQQ4cAD4iowUykBL8kA/viewform?usp=pp_url&entry.801673747=Who+Moved+My+Data? This session will be held by Dean Pleban & Guy Smoilovsky. Dean has led technological system integrations for large organizations and has studied machine learning and quantum information in the Hebrew University. Guy has over 10 years of experience as a developer, focusing on backend, big data, machine learning and DevOps. Together, they co-founded DAGsHub, the home for data science collaboration. They have interviewed many machine learning focused companies and want to share their inferences with the world. Hope to see you all, Tikal Team #devops

  • Serverless In Action with GraphQL and more

    Google for Startups Campus

    We're happy to invite you to our event @ google for startups campus. 17:00-17:30 - Reception, Networking, Coffee&Cake. 17:30-18:30 -Serverless In Action with GraphQL by Assaf Gannon, Javascript Architect from Tikal. Serverless technologies and capabilities are here and are accessible now more than ever. The power of infinite scale and system capabilities has never been more accessible. This also affects traditional front end development as serverless technologies allow for easy construction of backend support for any frontend with ease and simplicity. In this talk, we will demonstrate how to build a fully functional Graphql endpoint for FE applications using Apollo Server and Client libraries, utilizing different cloud providers. We will also demonstrate the usage of Servless.com framework to set up the required infrastructure as code to simplify and support this setup. ** To ensure your participation, please fill out this form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeZqsm9le0RHyiQ34lKi6X3jB3bfOFYQQ4cAD4iowUykBL8kA/viewform?usp=pp_url&entry.801673747=Serverless+In+Action+with+GraphQL 18:30-18:45 - Break : Coffee&cakes with Networking. 18:45-19:45 - Streaming Data Pipeline Using Google Managed and Serverless services by Haim Cohen, Backend Group Leader & Big Data Tech Lead from Tikal. Creating near real-time data pipeline for billions of events and terabytes of data can be a challenging task. How can we serve the requests, with low latency and persist them all in less than a second latency end-to-end? What are the do's and don'ts when rolling such a system to production and how to monitor the hundreds of components involved? Come to hear a real-life case of such a system. We will discuss the architecture, technologies, code, and DevOps concern of the streaming data pipeline we created for one of the top mobile apps companies.

  • The parts of JWT security nobody talks about

    Tikal's office

    17:00-17:30 - Reception, Networking, Coffee&Cake. 17:30-18:30 - The parts of JWT security nobody talks about by Philippe De Ryck, Founder of Pragmatic Web Security, Google Developer Expert. JSON Web Tokens (JWT) have become the de facto standard to transfer application claims between the client and the server. By design, they incorporate the use of signatures to ensure the integrity of the data. However, merely signing the data alone is not enough to guarantee security. In this talk, we zoom into the security properties of JWTs. After introducing the different signature schemes, we dive into the hard parts nobody talks about. How do you manage and identify the keys used for the signature? How do you handle key rotation? And what about encrypting JWTs? This talk answers all these questions. You will walk away with a set of best practices for adequately securing JWTs. Philippe De Ryck is the founder of Pragmatic Web Security, where he travels the world to train developers on web security and security engineering. He holds a Ph.D. in web security from KU Leuven. Google recognizes Philippe as a Google Developer Expert for his knowledge of web security and security in Angular applications. ** To ensure your participation, please fill out this form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeZqsm9le0RHyiQ34lKi6X3jB3bfOFYQQ4cAD4iowUykBL8kA/viewform?usp=pp_url&entry.801673747=+Security+ 18:30-18:45 - Break : Coffee&cakes with Networking. 18:45-19:45 - Infrastructure fuzzing by Salo Shp, SRE Expert from Tikal. In this session We will cover the reason and methods hackers use to DDOS our production, and learn how to mitigate that threat by doing it ourselves as part of an overall Chaos Engineering methodology.
