It's the final All Hands on DevOps of 2016 and we're planning on closing out our inaugural year with a great speaker lineup, fantastic venue and some festive cheer to thank you all for joining us.
The venue has been confirmed with a big thank you to Smarkets for opening their incredible space at St. Katherines Dock for the evening and providing Canapés straight from their private team of chefs!
While Christmas jumpers are optional, they will be well received!
We'll be sticking to the tried and tested formula with two speakers and a heavy focus on Q&A from the audience with the following rough agenda:
18:30 - Welcome drinks and Canapés!
19:15 - Talk one - Matthew Smith - CTO @ Astillion
Matthew is an experienced Hands on DevOps manager focused on automation and tooling to provide continuous benefit and improvements back to the business on key strategic and tactical projects.
His will be talking about deploying Openshift (RH's Docker and Kubenetes implementation) with Terraform and Ansible to AWS.
19:45 - Pizza , refreshments, maybe even a mince pie etc.
20:15 - Talk two - Stijn Polfliet - Director & Co-Founder @ CoScale
Performance management for microservices.
Microservice applications require a different approach to monitoring than monolithic applications.
Stijn Polfliet is the CEO of CoScale, a provider of web performance analytics software. He obtained his Ph.D. in Computer Science at the Ghent University in Belgium, after which he co-founded CoScale. His interests focus on web application technologies and performance aspects.
In this presentation, he will discuss some of the challenges and solutions around performance management and how performance management can accelerate your microservice deployments with the right performance guarantees. This talk will end with a live demo to show how a Red Hat OpenShift environment can be monitored.
20:45 - More refreshments etc.
21:00 - Head to the Dickens Inn for some more festive drinks and networking.
