Meet our already confirmed speakers that are coming to Iasi on April 2018.
You get the chance to meet open minded professionals covering different roles in building a software project. From Business Analysts, Product Managers, Technical Leads, DevOps and QA Engineers, everyone can find valuable information and advice, learn new skills and practices.
It is a well-known fact that Iasi has got its talent in IT & C. Our city is one of the top 3 major names when it comes to outsourcing & IT development in the country. Almost 10% of the local employees are working in this industry, famous brands in technology already have new offices here, and startups are consistently being developed. Yet, a recent study tells us that local professionals are the most eager to leave the country for a job opportunity. Our ambition is to change that, by building a stronger community.
DevExperience is the first international conference where software developers from all over the world bring their real & valuable findings to our Iasi software community. It is structured as a training event where experienced people share the latest in practices, tools and technology with a local community eager to learn and improve.
DevExperience was attentively created by IT’S WISE team of specialists and their collaborators. We were completely involved, attended or spoke at many notable conferences in the industry. In DevExperience we combined good ideas from all of them. Hence, an event which has a professional agenda and top industry speakers.
We got a bunch of surprises for you and we know for sure that you will simply love this edition - 400 cool people, 2 Keynotes, over 20 international speakers and 5 very attractive tracks. So make sure that you get your ticket now!
This ticket allows you access to the conference day, 23 April (lunch not included).
For Sunday 22 April and Tuesday 24 April we have prepared these full day workshops:
Viktor Farcic is a senior consultant at CloudBees, member of the Docker Captains, and author.
Passionate about DevOps, microservices, continuous integration, delivery and deployment, and test-driven development, Viktor often speaks at community gatherings and conferences. He published The DevOps 2.0 Toolkit: Automating the Continuous Deployment Pipeline with Containerized Microservices; The DevOps 2.1 Toolkit: Docker Swarm, and the Test-Driven Java Development. His random thoughts and tutorials can be found in his blog.
What do we expect from a modern cluster? If a replica fails, it should be brought back up (rescheduled). If a node goes down all the services that were running inside it should be distributed among healthy nodes. Those tasks are easy to accomplish. Schedulers (Swarm, Kubernetes, Mesos/Marathon, and so on) are already doing those things for us. Many solutions provide self-healing by making sure that the system is (almost) always in the desired state.
The problem with self-healing is that it does not take into the account constant changes. The number of requests is continuously changing, errors are created, network bandwidth is fluctuating, and so on. A cluster, and services inside it, is like a living body that needs to adapt to changes continuously. Services need to be scaled and de-scaled, nodes need to be created and added to the cluster only to be removed soon after. We call that process adaptation. Even that is not the problem in itself, as long as we have an army of operators that will monitor the system and do reactive and preventive actions.
How about converting adaptation into self-adaptation? Can we remove humans from the process and make a system that is self-sufficient?
The goal of this workshop is to provide hands-on exercises that outline the steps required for a design of a self-adapting and self-healing system that will continue operating efficiently even when we are on vacations. We'll define goals and processes and explore quite a few tools (Docker, Prometheus, Alertmanager, Jenkins, AWS, and so on). The end-result of the workshop will be a base for a self-sufficient system that you'll be able to implement in your organization.
Ádám moved from application development to a consultancy career in cloud native computing.
He currently works at Amsterdam-based consultancy Container Solutions. He is helping companies succeed in improving their delivery of business critical software by combining his application development experience with knowledge of container-based infrastructure.
During the past two years Kubernetes has become the most widely used platform to run cloud native applications. In this hands-on workshop we will cover the fundamental concepts and features of Kubernetes, and learn best practices for deploying your applications.
Topics we will cover include:
Scheduling containers on your cluster
Hardening applications against failures
Making application highly available using load balancing
Handling traffic spikes with autoscaling
Managing access rights to the Kubernetes API using RBAC
Controlling network traffic using Network Policies
