  • NYLUG Open Hacker Hours (Room 506)

    Silver Center for Arts and Science

    You're invited to hack along with the New York Linux Users Group! We are very kindly hosted by the New York Amatuer Computer Club (http://nyacc.org/) which meets at NYU. We are in the Silver Building. See How to Find Us for the room #. Message the organizers via meetup app or message @nylug if you can't find us. Please have a government issued form of ID with you. This is a peer-supported workshop where we get together to share current challenges and approaches to solving problems or to just work alongside like-minded individuals and learn through osmosis. This event is NOT a lecture-style meeting. The agenda is generally set when someone poses a question, so bring questions! Some topics up for discussion are: • Install and configuration assistance • Documentation, standards, and best practices • Current events/Conventions • Release testing and bug reporting • Getting started with languages like Python and LaTeX • -Other projects (Pi/Arduino/Analog devices) We will also have brief (approx. 5-10 minute) lightning talks, so please speak with a coordinator if you're interested in sharing some of your work. A laptop is not required but strongly recommended. Bring a project, topic, and questions and work with other enthusiasts on using Linux or get assistance with your own Linux/Open Source projects. Geeks are more sociable solving problems rather then just talking about themselves.

  • Sneaking in Nix: Building Production Containers with Nix

    Two Sigma Investments 23rd floor

    Graham Christensen -on- Sneaking in Nix: Building Production Containers with Nix Graham will be talking about how Nix and Docker differently model the relationships between software. Nix is a package manager and build tool. Its design automatically provides for reproducible builds and dev-prod parity. Nix's dependency model automatically and efficiently generates OCI-compatible containers with only the required run-time dependencies. Without alpine, or FROM scratch, while also reducing rebuild and test time. These containers seamlessly integrate with existing container-based deployment workflows, while bringing the reproducibility and traceability benefits of Nix. Links: -------- https://nixos.org/ https://grahamc.com Afterwards: --------------- Join us afterwards at the Cupping Room Cafe where we'll continue the discussion over drinks and/or food. The Cupping Room Cafe is located at 359 W Broadway, two blocks from the venue. Speaker Bio: ----------------- Graham Christensen is part of the NixOS Foundation's Infrastructure and Security teams, and works on the Nix ecosystem for Tweag.io. He believes in artifact-based, immutable infrastructure from the bottom up, and that to build an apple pie from scratch you must first rebuild your bootstrapping compiler.

  • The Future of the Ansible Ecosystem

    DigitalOcean

    Tim Appnel -on- The Future of the Ansible Ecosystem Ansible is a simple, powerful and agentless automation tool has accomplished a lot since February 2012 when the first commit was made. Here we will review the architectural and community factors that contributed to its accomplishments and the challenges that it must now address. Tim will cover how Ansible is being evolved over the coming years into a platform and then demo some of the new features that have begun to emerge in recent releases. A great chance to discuss and give feedback. Lightning Talk: Building Kubernetes Operators in an Ansible-native way A Kubernetes Operator is a method of packaging, deploying and automating the day-1 and day-2 management activities in a Kubernetes cluster. Learn how you can utilize existing Ansible skills and ecosystem to implement Operators and dynamically manage your K8s applications. ** DOORS OPEN AT 6 ** Links: -------- http://ansible.com/ http://ansible.com/operators Afterwards: --------------- Join us afterwards at the Cupping Room Cafe where we'll continue the discussion over drinks and/or food. The Cupping Room Cafe is located at 359 W Broadway, two blocks from the venue. Speaker Bio: ----------------- Timothy Appnel is a Senior Product Manager, product evangelist and "Jack of all trades" on the Ansible team at Red Hat. Tim is an old-timer in the Ansible community that has been contributing since version v0.5. The synchronize module in Ansible is all his fault.

  • Kubernetes: From Start to Finish Production

    DigitalOcean

    Paul Burt -on- Kubernetes: From Start to Finish Production If Kubernetes is the “Linux of the cloud”, then building your own k8s platform from scratch is like compiling your own Linux distro from scratch. In this talk we’ll explore the essential components of a fully functional, and immediately useful Kubernetes distro. We’ll talk about why building your own cluster is fun, and what value of a shrink-wrapped SKU’d platforms really is. We’ll take a tour through options for provisioning a cluster, using a container registry, the essential feature categories that every Kubernetes distro needs to address. Popular Kubernetes distros will be compared, and a synopsis of strengths/weaknesses and ideal uses will be suggested. The features of each distro might not be able to be covered in full, since CNCF landscape might be the most brutal vision test ever invented; So, our goal is to cover one or two options in each category, and note why they’ve become popular. We’ll wrap up with some resources for how you can learn and build your own cluster (on the cheap), and where to find learning resources for exploring more of Kubernetes and the cloud native landscape on your own. • DIY • Picking a Kubernetes Distro • Platforms • Containers • Cloud Native There will be time for questions! Links: -------- https://kubernetes.io/ Afterwards: --------------- Join us afterwards at the Cupping Room Cafe where we'll continue the discussion over drinks and/or food. The Cupping Room Cafe is located at 359 W Broadway, two blocks from the venue. Speaker Bio: ----------------- Paul Burt is a TPME working on Kubernetes at NetApp. He previously worked at CoreOS and Red Hat, and currently moderates /r/kubernetes. Paul has a knack for and demystifying infrastructure, and making gnarly, complex topics approachable. He enjoys home brewing beer, reading independent comics, and yelling at his computer when it doesn’t do what he wants.
