We will be at the reBuy offices on the 4th floor.

7:00 - 7:30p - Alex Diaz - How to Monitor Microservices with Kubernetes 

First, containers radically changed how you could get visibility into your applications. As developers have started to leverage orchestration systems on top of containers, the game is changing yet again. What was a simple application on a host before is now a sophisticated, dynamically orchestrated, multi-container architecture. It’s amazing for development - but introduces a whole new set of challenges for monitoring.

In this talk we’ll lay out a few key principles for monitoring microservices and the containers they are based on. These principles are based on my experience, but also leverage the wisdom of hundreds of organizations that are currently monitoring microservices with Kubernetes.

7:30 - 8:00p - Frederic Branczyk - End-to-End Monitoring with the Prometheus Operator

Kubernetes is a powerful system to build and operate a modern cloud-native infrastructure. Monitoring with Prometheus ensures that Kubernetes stays healthy. Prometheus is a stateful application so operating it can be a challenging task. The Prometheus Operator makes running highly available Prometheus clusters and even an entire end to end monitoring pipeline easily manageable. Frederic will explain the functionality of the Prometheus Operator as well as describe a desirable end to end monitoring stack including alerts and dashboards.

8:00 - 8:15p - (Lightning Talk) Björn Häuser - Kubernetes at reBuy
