NWS goes stackconf

About stackconf 2022

This year’s stackconf takes place in the beautiful Meliá Berlin. After a long draught, the conference can finally take place in person! We can finally meet other developers, users and people interested in the same topics again.
The conference features talks about a wide variety of topics related to cloud native technologies, infrastructure automation and lessions learned.

 

Who is going?

Being a silver sponsor most of the NWS team is present at the conference. We would love to get in touch with you and talk tech! in addition our CEO, Bernd Erk, is going to give the opening speech and Sebastian Saemann will show us how to use Vitess on Kubernetes with an intriguing demo.

 

What am I personally looking forward to?

I personally can’t wait to get insights into the big Spotify outage in March, which I was effected by as well. It’s always great to hear from other companies how they handle failures of any kind. Another talk I can’t wait to see is the Metal³ talk about provisioning infrastructure directly with Kubernetes. Since many workloads seem to shift to Kubernetes it’s a natural progression to manage everything with it. Unfortunately that means that I will miss the equally interesting talk about Nomad, an alternative to Kubernetes, and Waypoint. But since every talk will be recorded and uploaded onto the NETWAYS YouTube Channel, I’ll definitely catch up on it!

 

What to expect?

There will be people from all over the world joining the conference. It will be an opportunity to meet like-minded, interesting people and to exchange opinions, discuss experiences or just enjoy a chat with them.
The schedule already reveals that there will be many top engineers, CTOs and developers from all sorts of companies giving insights into their business, as well as experiences, best practices and invaluable knowledge learned by doing the wrong thing. A lot of interesting topics will be covered – there is surely something for everyone!

 

Are you going?

I’m already excited to go there and can’t wait to learn many new things regarding Kubernetes, CI/CD and much more.
Me and my colleagues are also thrilled that we can join the conference in person! Having the chance to meet other people face to face is just something different and also watching keynotes and demos (fail) live on site is always exciting. Will you be there, too? We sure hope so – otherwise, you can still get your ticket(s) for the on-site event in Berlin!

So hat er beschlossen den Schritt zu wagen und andere Teile Deutschlands zu erkunden, um NETWAYS im Team Web Services tatkräftig zu unterstützen.

stackconf online 2021 | Platform as a Product

This entry is part 27 of 27 in the series stackconf online 2021

This year’s stackconf is over and was a big success. The three-day conference last summer was all about open source infrastructures where trendsetting concepts, state-of-the-art technical expertise, top-level discussions and new perspectives have shaped the event.

Besides our 30 amazing experts sessions we were also excited about the large amount of participants from all over the world. Our audience included renowned infrastructure spezialists, industry leaders, experienced administrators and IT architects as well as a wild bunch of open source community enthusiasts.

For all of you who couldn’t join the Open Source Infrastructure Conference I’ve something awesome today.

Michael Cotè has covered in his talk how ops groups are transforming from a service delivery mindset a platform-as-a-product approach. With examples from Discover Financial Services, Rabobank, the US Air Force, & others the talk covers the concept, technologies & tools commonly used, & ops tactics needed to kick-off a platform-as-a-product strategy. Be curious and enjoy his lecture!

Our Highlight Speakers

You are curious already? Here are three out of our magnificent speakers line-up presenting their talks to you:

Kat Liu | Spotify’s outage of 8.3.2022, explained

Spotify had one of its most disruptive outages in recent history on 8.3.2022 CET, which resulted in over an hour of downtime and users getting logged out. As luck would have it, I was on-call for the very first time for the User platform tribe. I helped where I could, but mostly watched in awe as a flurry of teams came online after-hours to work together to debug and mitigate the issue. Here, I’ll talk about the this incident, including symptoms, root causes, aftereffects, and takeaways.

 

 

Matt Jarvis | Choose your open source package like you choose a hotel

Securing our software supply chains has become one of the biggest stories of recent years. From code injection to typo squatting, bad actors are realising that getting code into the upstream supply chain may be an easier route than targeting vulnerabilities in downstream applications. So how do we manage this in open source communities? Here, I will introduce the problem space of software supply chain issues in open source package libraries and how tools like Advisor can help you make informed choices.

 

Hannah Foxwell | DevOps or DevX – Lessons We Learned Shifting Left the Wrong Way

In 2010 the DevOps movement set about solving the blockage on the path to production. The Wall of Confusion! Developers would throw new software releases, features, and products over the wall to operations who were tasked with supporting these apps in production. We have been tearing down the wall of confusion for a decade and we have learnt a thing or two along the way. In this talk I will reflect on how we often “shift left” the wrong way, and how we might approach this familiar problem in new ways that set our teams up for success.

 

Save your seat!

Have we convinced you with this year’s stackconf program and our highlight speakers? Then save your ticket for July 19 – 20, 2022 in Berlin to be on bord of an extraordinary and absolutely exciting open source event this summer!

Stay tuned!
