Open Source Monitoring Conference (OSMC) 2020 cancelled

With mixed feelings we announce that we cancel the Open Source Monitoring Conference (OSMC) for this year due to Corona. The decision is made with a heavy heart, the crucial point though is that dangers and consequences are currently too hard to assess.

Holding the conference online was not really an option too. This might work for other conferences and formats, and many organizers did a great job with online events. But an online event would leave out what OSMC really is about: Meeting other monitoring experts in person, discussing and socializing in a relaxed atmosphere.

Stay tuned and in touch

Stay tuned for the announcement of OSMC 2021! At osmc.de you can register for our newsletter to stay posted. Follow our Twitter feed @netwaysevents to get to know any updates.

DevOpsDays Berlin cancelled

The DevOpsDays Berlin have been cancelled for this year due to Corona. “Though there were good arguments for running the conference, most of us felt uncomfortable to expose people to a potential danger that isn’t fully understood yet”, the organizers said. They decided to suspend the event in 2020 and to hold it again in 2021. Holding the conference online was not really an option for the Berlin crew. Other DevOpsDays who did an online version of their event had great success with the attendee numbers, but they felt that this would miss out with the most important part of the conference: Bringing people together in person and the community aspect of the event. The Berlin organizers are planning an event for 2021, which can be expected to fall into the same time as this or the last years: Beginning to middle of fall 2021.

Entries from this Call for Papers won’t be kept for next year (“because the only thing older than a ‘Tech Talk’ from a year ago is yesterday’s newspaper”). Who already proposed would need to create a new entry next year. The DevOpsDays Berlin organizers thank all speakers for their awesome talk and session proposals this year, and encourage and invite people to propose again in 2021.

Keep an eye on https://devopsdays.berlin/ or on the Twitter feed @blndevops to stay informed and get the new dates.

Terraform Training: Provisionierung von Infrastruktur in der Cloud

Mit dem Infrastructure-as-Code-Werkzeug (IaC) Terraform lässt sich Infrastruktur für Anwendungen in der Cloud automatisiert erstellen und verwalten. Das Tool abstrahiert die APIs unterschiedlicher Anbieter mit sogenannten Providern. So kann die Konfiguration Deiner Infrastruktur revisionssicher dokumentiert und von allen Teammitgliedern gemeinsam genutzt und bearbeitet werden.

Terraform nimmt Administrator*innen und Entwickler*innen viel Routinearbeit ab, erfordert aber eine gute Einarbeitung. Und hier kommen wir ins Spiel: In unserer Schulung lernst Du, wie Du mit Terraform Infrastrukturen sicher und nachvollziehbar erstellen, ändern und verbessern kannst.

Mit der aktuellen Version von Terraform und seiner Konfigurationssprache HCL (Hashicorp Configuration Language) in Version 0.12 hat sich das Vorgehen zur Automatisierung von Cloud-Infrastruktur weiterentwickelt.

Von HCL bis cloud-init

Unsere zweitägige Schulung beginnt mit einer Einführung in HCL. Anschließend zeigen wir Dir, wie Du Infrastruktur für AWS oder OpenStack wiederverwendbar und idempotent mit Terraform realisierst. Ebenfalls erfolgt eine Einführung in cloud-init, um weitere Software zu installieren und zu konfigurieren.

Folgende Linux-Kenntnisse sind Grundvoraussetzung zur Teilnahme: sicherer Umgang mit der Kommandozeile, ssh und vim bzw. einem alternativen Editor. Bringst Du mit? Na dann, willkommen zur Weiterbildung!

Aktuell haben wir folgende Termine im Angebot:

  • Terraform Training | Online | 08. – 09. September 2020
  • Terraform Training | Nürnberg | 08. – 09. Dezember 2020

Unsere Trainer sind nicht nur im Bereich Schulungen tätig, sondern arbeiten regelmäßig in Software- und Kundenprojekten. Wir wissen, worauf es ankommt und teilen unser Wissen gerne – für Deinen Erfolg!

stackconf online recap: from deep dive to offbeat and back

stackconf: in-person or online? In the beginning of the year, this was the most talked about question in the NETWAYS Events Team. In March it became quite clear. We have not really had a choice in this one: If we wanted stackconf 2020 to happen, we had to hold it online. Soon we realized though that what was born from necessity also carried a big chance. The chance to try something new, to leave the comfort zone.

Really overwhelming and convincing us that we were on the right path, was the support of the many of our speakers. Having handed in their talks when stackconf was still planned as taking place in Berlin, they sticked to their contribution for the online event too. Even though we extended stackconf with one more day.

Which path to take? Take them all!

Three days was the amount we needed to make sure to be able to show all presentations in just one track.

In this way we have freed our participants from extremely difficult decisions: Should I watch this or that talk? What interests me more: The Path to a Serverless-native era with Kubernetes? Or: The Path to OpenSource DBaaS with Kubernetes? No, you could just stay wherever you were and follow the first path first and the second path later. You could watch all talks in one row over the course of our three conference days. And during talks, which were pre-recorded and streamed, you could even get your questions directly answered by the speaker in the live chat.

What happened in between the presentations was surely worth to follow. The breaks were partly as enlightening as the talks, and for long stretches it was very exhilarating too.

From deep dive to offbeat and back

In charge of the break program: Our CEO Bernd Erk and Christian Stein, responsible for our NETWAYS webinars. The two made a wonderful team of moderators that brought us to and through discussions about challenges in our own industry, announced talks, welcomed speakers, and entertained us with wonderfully offbeat topics in best webcast manner. From favourite movies, to sustainability, to technical matters. The attendees had fun participating in the „Hallway Chat“ – being it hardest question or random stuff. Another fun part was the community evening playing Mario Kart.

This or that? That was the question in the small polls in our Twitter channel @NetwaysEvents. And the winners are awesome (88.9%), Kubernetes (90%), Remote Work (100%), YouTube (75%), Building (75%), Meeting in-person (62.5%), Cloud ( 71.4%), VxLAN & VLAN (50/50), Elastic (81.8%), Batman (55%) and DevOps (80%).

Thanks to all who joined our small survey. And of course and above all: Thanks to all of you who joined stackconf online! It was a blast! See you in 2021 for stackconf, this time hopefully in-person again in Berlin. Save the date: June 14 & 15, 2021.
