Event description

Description

At Hotels.com DevOps is a core part of our culture running through everything we do. Our Hotels.com tech teams are always keen to share what they do so others can learn from them and have others come in and speak so we can learn from them too.

Our next meetup will focus on ‘DevOps with Kubernetes’ and is going to be held on Wednesday 25th of April at the Hotels.com offices in Angel, London. On the evening we have a wide range of talks, including Charlotte Godley, Cheryl Hung and some of the Hotels.com team. There will also be food, drink and lots of opportunity to chat to fellow engineers keen to learn and share.


Cheryl Hung - Product manager, StorageOS

Topic: "Persistent Storage with Kubernetes in Production – Which Solution and Why?"

Cheryl is an ex-Google software engineer with a passion for developer tools, experience and community. She founded the Cloud Native London meetup and codes, writes and speaks about containers, storage and cloud computing.

Persistent storage often seems like a confusing plethora of options, from local volumes, NFS, distributed storage like Ceph, cloud storage such as AWS’s EBS and S3, to volume plugins with Docker and Kubernetes integration. This talk compares and contrasts the most popular solutions, and lays out the eight principles for cloud native storage.

Dan Gorst and Kevin Taylor - Hotels.com Platform Team

Topic: Empowering developers with Kubernetes @ Hotels.com

A warts’n’all history of how Hotels.com has gone from a monolithic app released every few weeks, through to hundreds of containerized micro services, Continuous Delivery, ChatOps, DevOps and most recently Kubernetes in AWS. We’ll take a deeper look into our ChatOps/Kubernetes integration, introduce Flyte, and look at how we manage multiple Kube clusters in AWS.

We are looking forward to seeing you on the night!

Charlotte Godley- Platform Engineer, Ocado Technology

Topic: Don't hate the player, hate the pipeline: Building CD processes that don't suck

Infrastructure as code has created an automatable way of getting code into production. However, there are still a million ways to make a continuous delivery process, and most of those probably suck for someone. This talk will discuss some common patterns across bad CI/CD processes, how we addressed these issues in the Ocado Technology Kubernetes-based developer platform and what we intend to do next. From this talk you will learn how to spot bad processes, and how you can avoid those mistakes to improve developer and operations experiences in the future.

Charlotte Godley is a Platform Engineer working on the Kubernetes warehouse developer platform at Ocado Technology. She relishes the opportunity to destroy roadblocks for future developers whilst writing services for ops teams to monitor the platform's response. To achieve this she works on CI/CD scripting, monitoring and alerting, and extensions to the Kubernetes API to add functionality and standardise developer workflows. As a developer in her own time, she writes a blog on side projects and quirks of different technologies. She writes to elucidate her thought process in an approachable manner, so that others may easily learn from her solution. Her aim is to make it easier for the next person with the same problem, and as a result her blog posts have been helpful to beginners and experienced programmers alike.

Paul Maddox- Developer Technologies, Amazon Web Services

Title: Kubernetes on AWS with Amazon EKS

Paul has spent the last 16 years in a mixture of development, SRE and architect roles. He now works for AWS, helping people build on the cloud using serverless, containers, and modern development best practices.


Abstract: Curious about Amazon’s upcoming managed Kubernetes service? Join us to found out what we're building, and how it can help you run Kubernetes on AWS. We’ll talk through some of the deeper points of what it takes to run a production-ready K8s cluster, and how Amazon EKS will do this heavy lifting for you.


Look forword to seeing you on the night!
