Balancing Complexity: With Kubernetes And Vault
Time: 13:30 - 14:00
Speaker: Richard Marshall
Job title: Head Of Platform
Company: Wealth Wizards

All software systems are inherently complex. By balancing the complexity of the software across a whole system we’re able to deliver software faster, safely and more securely across our regulated advice platform.

Micro Infrastructure At ITV
Time: 14:00 - 14:20
Speaker:Tom Haynes
Job Title: Platform Engineer
Company: ITV

The concept of infrastructure as code continues to evolve to match modern development practices. What lessons for the design of IT infrastructure can be learnt from Microservice Architecture design patterns? In this talk we will develop the analogue between Microservices and “Micro Infrastructures”, and discuss how such a design was implemented with Terraform and Puppet codebases at ITV. We will see how this has improved our agility, security and reliability.

How Much Friction Is Acceptable?

The challenges in in transitioning from consolidated tools in a heterogeneous enviorment; how do you find an acceptable degree of standardisation/ consistency and enable autonomy without getting in the way. Gitlab, CI.CD Pipeline, EFK, Prometheus, Hybrid Cloud (AWS and on-perm and all the challenges with that); How Ticketmaster is using them and some of the challenges moving towards distributed tooling? 

Observability In A Microservices World

SpeakerFederico Fregosi
Job Title: Lead Site Reliability Engineer
Company: Curve

In this talk, we're gonna introduce the GitOps model or "Operations by Pull Requests" for CI/CD. Describing how we can have a unique source of truth for the code deployed and the infrastructure. We're gonna talk about how we can use this model with Jenkins and Circle.Ci to efficiently deploy a fully automated continuous pipeline for microservices and Kubernetes. We're gonna go through the features explaining advantages and trade-offs: how to implement "promotion" across multiple environments for both the deployable artifacts and the configuration and how to have complete logging and auditability in a simple template logic.

Driving Disruption From Statup To Innovating The Developer Experience 

Time: 15:10 - 15:30
Speaker: Chris Jackson

Cost Control and Governance Best Practices in AWS Cloud
Time: 15:10 - 15:30
Speaker: Fernando Honig

Moving your infrastructure and workloads to the cloud implies a lot of R&D. You start small, you create a few AWS Accounts, and then you end up having in between 10 to 15 accounts, you forget to delete instances, to rotate keys, your security is compromised and your start seeing unexpected bills. I will give you some tips to save money, keep your environments secured and follow best practices adopted by the cloud ecosystem.

Serving Up Environments: Accessing Containers With Codetainer
Time: 15:30 - 16:00
