Hosted a Cloud Native Meetup
Cloud Native Romandie Meetup (Virtual) 17.06.2021
We had another Cloud Native Meetup yesterday evening, once again virtual with a live stream on YouTube.
There were talks on Keptn and Cloud Native Patterns and Anti-Patterns.
I didn't have a talk this time, only focused on technical stuff such as recording 😁
Prepared a Workshop
Wrote about DevOps
Led a workshop
I've been preparing a DevOps Workshop for a client, to be given next week. It's hard to cover this subject in a neutral manner.
Since it's a workshop and not a training, I'm mainly keeping a list of subjects to work on, and we might switch between them during the sessions.
So far, I'm covering:
- History (JustInTime/Lean/Agile/DevOps Days)
- Problems (Silos, Interfaes, Collaboration, Three Ways of DevOps, Cultural Impact)
- Concepts (Iac, Idempotency/Declarative, Immutability, Divergence/Convergence/Congruence, Human vs Automation, Decoupling, Tech Debt, Continuous Improvement, Sysadmin vs Platform Engineer, End-to-end Responsibility)
- Tools (VCS, Cloud, IaC, CI/CD, Containers, Observability, etc.)
Wrote a Course
Used AWS EKS
Used Argo CD
Wrote a Containers/Kubernetes course
Over the last 5 years with a colleague, I have been co-creating and co-maintaining a Containers/Kubernetes course, which now spans 5 days.
This course uses the DevOps Stack (https://devops-stack.io) as a base to deploy the underlying Kubernetes platform on AWS EKS.
The Developer version of the course uses a sample app with 3 versions of the backend (in Java, Python, and Go), which students get to improve/instrument as they adapt it to deploy it as containers.
