We will have three talks on our agenda:
First talk: How to stop Firefighting in DevOps Teams and improve Developer Experience? - Giulio Roggero
In far more IT departments than you would expect it frequently happens that, in the case that an issue is reported, Dev and DevOps teams start solving the problem by adopting a fire-fighting mode. To avoid this dynamic, many organizations find it reasonable to transition to feature teams. But as feature team members, DevOps may not have a full understanding of each assignment or focus on non-core developments. The answer is simpler than you may think: let's start thinking about Developers as end users, abandoning the infrastructure-centric vision, and putting the Developer Experience (DevX) at the center of the deployment process. The most effective tool to radically improve DevX is the Internal Developer Portal (IDP), a single portal that collects in one place all available services and tools available within the company. By providing enhanced visibility, traceability, audibility, and observability across the whole DevOps cycle, the Internal Developer Portal helps DevOps teams to guarantee business continuity, security, and DevOps evolution, while improving the collaboration with Dev Teams thanks to a better Developer Experience. During this talk, Giulio Roggero, CTO at Mia-Platform, will disclose valuable tips for enabling this perspective shift, and for successfully implementing an Internal Developer Portal in your organization to improve the Developer Experience.
Second talk: Unleash the potential of your AWS-based Kubernetes clusters - Fernanda Machado
Kubernetes has revolutionized the way organizations deploy and manage applications through container orchestration. However, optimizing compute and operational expenses across various teams and projects presents challenges. In this session, you will explore the complexities of balancing workloads, managing resource fluctuations, and cost allocation in a multi-tenant environment. You will learn key techniques and best practices to maximize the efficiency of your Kubernetes cluster using Karpenter and Kubecost on AWS.
Fernanda is a Specialist Solutions Architect at AWS, helping developers to modernize and build cloud-native applications on AWS
Third talk: Quickstart with Internal Developer Platforms with ArgoCD and Github Actions
In this talk, Sergio Méndez is going to talk about Internal Developer Platforms (IDP), and all the concepts around IDPs and platform engineering, and how companies can start building IDPs using ArgoCD and Github Actions.
During this talk, Sergio is going to show a small self-service implementation with ArgoCD to create Kubernetes applications using Github Actions forms to execute pipelines that create ArgoCD applications definitions that ArgoCD can use to provision applications in a Kubernetes cluster.
Sergio Méndez is a systems engineer and professor of operating systems at USAC Guatemala university. He is also a CNCF and Linkerd Ambassador, and also author of the Packt book Edge Computing Systems with Kubernetes.
