Lightning Talk: Cloud Native Design Patterns - Bilgin Ibryam, Red Hat
The way we design, develop and run applications on Cloud Native platforms differ significantly from other platforms. When working with Kubernetes, there are less concerns for developers to think about, but also there are new patterns and practices for solving every day challenges. In this talk, I’ll look at (very quickly) on a number of patterns and practices which are de facto way of developing Cloud Native applications. More specifically we will look at patterns such as:
  • Creational Design Patterns
  • Automatable Unit
  • Predictable Resource Profile
  • Declarative Deployment
  • Declarative Scheduling
  • Observable Interior
  • Life Cycle Conformance
  • Behavioral Design Patterns
  • Managed SD and LB
  • Managed Batch Jobs

Lessons Learned From Maintaining Continuous Delivery While Migrating From a Static Infrastructure to Kubernetes [B] - Audun Fauchald Strand & Øyvind Ingebrigtsen Øvergaard, FINN.no / Schibsted
Finn.no is Norway's largest website. Whilst running on static infrastructure, we support 300 microservices, 1400 deploys a week, and 6 minutes from git push to production. But our platform didn't meet the demands of our developers. So we started to migrate our platform from static servers to a dynamic approach, both on premise and in the cloud. We are not yet done with that process, but we have learned a lot. We want to share these learnings with you

The talk will maintain the following parts:
  • Introduction to FINN, and its legacy infrastructure
  • How we set up kubernetes, and how this has changed in the last 6 months
  • On-premise vs GKE
  • Tools we made for easier deployment and migration
  • FIAAS (Tool for deploying apps with a minimal config for each app)
  • HA proxy ingress controller for migrating app traffic
  • How to integrate Prometheus and Kubernetes for painfree metrics Experiences
  • Migrating apps are difficult
  • Kubernetes is complex
  • Developers like to make apps quickly
  • Monitoring is everything

The Open Service Broker API and the Kubernetes Service Catalog [B] - Paul Morie, Red Hat & Chip Childers, Cloud Foundry Foundation
The next frontier for Kubernetes is allowing seamless integration with the vast array of service brokers available in the microservice-based software ecosystem via a service catalog. The Open Service Broker API is an industry standard that allows service operators to integrate with multiple platforms using a single API specification.

In this session, you’ll learn exactly what the Open Service Broker API specification is, its history, how the cross-ecosystem collaboration on the API specification is happening and especially how the Kubernetes ecosystem is building integrations with this specification via the service catalog project. We’ll briefly talk about how to get involved in the Kubernetes Special Interest Group (SIG), and if the audience behaves, we’ll even do a demo!

Reworking Your Team for Kubernetes [B] - Hans Kieserman, Yahoo
Launching a product on Kubernetes involves a lot more than just “containerization”. It’s an interesting challenge to train team members for expertise in networking, monitoring, debugging, and reworking legacy apps to perform better under orchestration. Beyond the common issues of optimizing Docker containers, you’ll need a whole new understanding in order to create the right team, schedule, and ambitious but realistic adoption path.
We can help your efforts towards adoption by explaining common problems with getting up to speed. With several Kubernetes projects in the works across multiple teams, Yahoo has recent experience that can benefit any company.

OpenTracing Isn't Just Tracing: Measure Twice, Instrument Once [B] - Ted Young, LightStep
Those building microservices at scale understand the role and importance of distributed tracing: it’s the most direct way to understand how and why a system is misbehaving. However, often this information has been hard to procure, given the challenges of explicit instrumentation, and once obtained, it is siloed from other relevant data such as logging and other monitoring.

The OpenTracing project provides a standard, portable API for distributed tracing instrumentation and changes that. In this talk, Priyanka and Ted will begin by describing OpenTracing and explaining why anyone who monitors microservices should care about it. Having laid that groundwork, the talk will step back to examine the historical role of operational logging and metrics in distributed system monitoring, then illustrate how the OpenTracing API maps to these tried-and-true abstractions. There will also be a demo involving donuts, distributed traces, and prometheus monitoring (all via OpenTracing).

Cloud Native Strategy - From Ancient Greece to Container Orchestration (and Other Stuff They Don't Teach You at Business School) [B] - Jamie Dobson, Container Solutions
Many companies see the benefits of highly available, scalable and resilient systems. They want to go ‘cloud native’ but as they reach for containerised microservices they may actually be grabbing the golden egg rather than the goose that laid it.

In this talk, we’ll look at a model for emerging strategy, classic mistakes and how to avoid them. We’ll also look at how we can iterate through the ‘cloud native’ problem space. Along the way, and before we get to recent history, we’ll visit ancient Greece, post-war Scandinavia, and the Jet Propulsion Lab. We’ll learn about heuristics, including the doughnut principle, and then of course we’ll confront the key paradox that strategy tries to resolve: what is good for a business is not necessary good for those who work in it.

Kubernetes: Developing on Windows, Deploying on Linux [B] - Rodrigue Cloutier, Ubisoft
The Kubernetes community and tooling is currently oriented towards POSIX systems.
For various reasons, many developers still need to run a development environment on Windows, while deploying actual services in a Linux environment.
This talk is based on what we've learned while developing the next online platform for Ubisoft's flagship games.
It will cover the current state of tooling when working in a mixed environment, and some of the practices we've developed to work effectively with the current generation of tools such as minikube and Helm.
We will also explore what can be learned about how these and future tools can be better adapted to support developers working in these mixed environments.

Topics covered include:
- Current state of the Kubernetes tooling in mixed environments
- Using POSIX tooling within "native" Windows shells
- Current virtualization technologies caveats and proper usage
- Best practices for developing mixed-environment aware tools

From Heroku to Cloud Native in 7 Weeks [B] - Ivan Pedrazas, Soho House
At Soho House we went from Heroku to be fully cloud native in only 7 weeks by choosing the right technologies: Kubernetes, Prometheus and Fluentd, and the right tools: Helm, drone.io, Kubernetes Third Party Resources and Nats.

During this talk we will see how a small team of developers managed to migrate their Heroku infrastructure to a multi cloud environment.

We will cover how the CI/CD based on Helm was built and the problems around building and deploying cloud native applications. We will explain how using Third Party resources and nats.io enabled a group of ruby developers to be fully productive with a kubernetes cluster by abstracting the hard bits.

We will cover how to build a production ready cluster using Prometheus and Fluentd allowed us to focus on what was important for Soho House: building a platform to deliver solutions quickly and without breaking the bank.

In summary, this is the story of a journey from zero to production using cloud native technologies.

A Staging Environment Per Pull Request: Building Our Own Controller! [B] - Kamal Marhubi, Heap
Services like TravisCI and CircleCI make it easy to run your test suite on every pull request. But sometimes you just want to kick the tires of a complete system with your changes applied. Kubernetes let's us do far better than an ad hoc staging environment: launch an entire environment in the cluster for each pull request! In this talk, we'll walk through the design of a system for declaratively specifying staging environments. Along the way we'll take a look behind the curtain and learn about the beautifully simple control loop architecture that underlies all Kubernetes components.

Audit in Kubernetes Now, and in the Future [B] - Maciej Szulik, Red Hat
Quoting Wikipedia “an audit is a systematic and independent examination of (...)
records”. Now think for a second, how much information is floating through your
Kubernetes cluster. Deployments, Jobs and many other controllers creating and
destroying Pods. Administrators creating Users, granting Roles. Users creating
and modifying ConfigMaps, Secrets and many, many others. You can limit actions
performed by a single User creating Roles, controllers can be assigned ServiceAccounts,
etc, of course. But even with all that in place, are you sure you can easily
trace when a change was introduced, and most importantly who performed it?
This is when auditing comes into play.

During this presentation, I will introduce what auditing is, and what you can
expect from one of the best hidden features of Kubernetes, and why should you
care. I don't like just talking about ideas, so we’ll also walk through a live
demo showcasing the audit feature.
With all the current state laid out, I will discuss the future evolution of this
feature. Most importantly, I will cover the scope of the information that should
be gathered during processing each request. What policies should be implemented
to provide reasonable balance between performance and accountability. Lastly,
I will cover the most sensitive topic, how to store all that information.

After this session you will understand how auditing in Kubernetes works, and how
to leverage it to stay informed about what goes on in your cluster. Furthermore,
I am hoping this presentation will foster a discussion about advanced audit feature
and its shape in Kubernetes.

Cloud Native Transformation: How Ticketmaster is Changing Culture and Speeding Up Delivery [B] - Bindi Belanger, Ticketmaster
Ticketmaster redefined an entire market by being the first to put computers in box offices and we now have four decades worth of products and tools that connect fans with the live events they love. With over 21 ticketing systems across the world and massive global technology team that continues to create and deliver new products and services, we must continually increase our speed to delivery to keep pace with our competitors. Historically, production scale infrastructure required significant lead time and often resulted in product launch delays or painful scaling lessons. As we continue to transition to a completely Cloud Native product offering, we’re now able to deploy infrastructure within a matter of minutes instead of months, thereby allowing our development teams to quickly build and release new products and services. In this talk, we’ll discuss the challenges that we’ve faced along the way and how we’ve made organizational and process changes to help us arrive where we are today.

Fission: a Serverless Function Framework on Kubernetes [B] - Soam Vasani, Platform9 Systems, Inc.
"Serverless" functions allow users to easily create services from source code without dealing with the packaging, deployment, scaling, etc.

Fission is a serverless function framework built on Kubernetes. Users write functions and map them to HTTP routes. They don't have to deal with container images, registries or even learn Kubernetes in much detail.

Functions can be associated with HTTP routes, events, or timers. Functions consume CPU and memory resources only when running; they are started on-demand and killed when idle. Fission makes on-demand function loading very fast, by keeping an idle pool of containers running, in effect creating a distributed "threadpool".

Fission is useful for:
* Creating web app backends or REST APIs
* Implementing webhooks
* Writing event handlers

We'll demo the creation of a simple web app using fission functions in Python. We'll also cover:

* Unit testing and integration testing of functions
* Function versioning
* Logging, metrics, tracing
* Extensibility -- how to add arbitrary dependencies

We'll also show how tying together Kubernetes Watches and Fission functions make it very easy to write custom behaviour triggered by changes to arbitrary resources on Kubernetes.

Simplifying Container Operations with Habitat [B] - Michael Ducy, Chef
Container Orchestration Systems make for a great operational experience for deploying and management of containers. But that’s only part of the story when running containers in production. How do you build containers that contain only what you need (like no build systems/tools)? How do you orchestrate configuration of your application after the containers have been launched? How do you make it easy to modify an application config while keeping the containers immutable? How can you give your developers a means to declare dependencies for their applications?

Habitat, our open-source project for application automation, simplifies container management by packaging applications in a compact, atomic, and easily auditable format that makes it easier to deploy your application on various container runtimes

Workshop: Instrumenting Own Applications for Prometheus [B] - Alexandru Somesan & Frederic Branczyk, CoreOS [registration required to attend]
This workshop is designed for newcomers to the Kubernetes ecosystem that are looking to learn how to monitor their applications in the cluster using Prometheus.

Throughout this session, participants will learn how to reliably deploy Prometheus on Kubernetes, instrument and monitor own applications using the same principles by which Prometheus monitors the Kubernetes cluster itself and finally make use of collected metrics to set-up alarms and dashboards that suit their use-case.

Workshop outline:
  • Every participant has a working K8S cluster (either BYO or ad-hoc local multinode). 
  • Deploy Prometheus on the cluster using the Operator
  • Deploy example application (ideally web server + backend) to K8S cluster 
  • Discuss data flow from client to application in the context of K8S (ingress / external service). 
  • Discuss what kind of application metrics would meaningfully describe its operational state (counting processed requests, recording latencies as request passes through processing components inside app, exposing latencies of dependencies).
  • Implement at least one of each metric types (counter, histogram, gauge)
  • Configure Prometheus (through operator) to collect these metrics 
  • Display composite system + application metrics in dashboards (ready-made).

Registration is mandatory to attend this workshop session. REGISTER HERE to reserve your seat.

Groovy, There's a Docker in My Application Pipeline [B] - Kris Buytaert, Inuits
In the era of Infrastructure as Code we strive to automate everything,
this talk will discuss our experiences in automating the deployment of
building of continuous delivery pipelines and solving testing and application packaging problems. We'll take a populare Open Source dashboard application and show how we build and test the platform using
containers, and we'll also discuss how we use the Jenkins DSL to
automate the generation of this pipeline so we can easily repeat this pattern for other applications.

Buzzword bingo : Docker, Jenkins, Ruby, Jenkins DSL, Puppet, Groovy,

Bringing Kubernetes into Salesforce [B] - Steve Sandke, Salesforce
I'll be talking about our journey to using Kubernetes at Salesforce, in the World's Largest Enterprise Cloud Infrastructure. Topics will include:

  • Our motivations for choosing Kubernetes, and how we built confidence in the technology, solution and approach.
  • Our choice to build a lightweight abstraction atop Kubernetes artifacts, and lessons we've learned based on that. This includes our use of a fully declarative vs, API-driven deployment mechanism, which comes with pros and cons.
  • Lessons learned from bringing up Kubernetes in bare metal environments.
  • Securing communications between Kubernetes- and non-Kubernetes hosted workloads.
  • General observations around how shifting to the Kubernetes world requires changes to host-centric tooling.
