Title: "Exploiting the winds of change with Cloud Native @MHI Vestas"
Speakers: Anders Keis, Cloud Infrastructure Architect MHI Vestas and Thor Lange, Infrastructure Solution Architect MHI Vestas

The Windmill industry companies face the challenge of differentiating themselves. Going forward, their customers and price is only one differentiator . Focusing on delivering an increased portfolio of services and specific and targeted knowledge to customers makes a difference and that requires collections of data from the wide variety of systems in a windmill/turbine. These systems produce millions of datapoints each day and these are handled by Cloud Native products and Azure. The Cloud Infrastructure Architect Anders Keis and Cloud and Infrastructure Solution Architect Thor Lange – both from MHI Vestas Offshore Wind – will share their solution and experiences.


Title: "GitOps - Operations by Pull Request"
Speaker: Kasper Nissen, Site Reliability Engineer at LUNAR

The term "GitOps" term was originally coined by Weaveworks as a way to do operations by pull requests, and apply many of the same ideas behind reconciliation in kubernetes clusters to applications and clusters. This way of operating clusters enforces declarative infrastructure and serves as a source of truth for your systems. Always having the source of truth in Git provides many advantages, two of them are to always have the latest state to recover from in case of a cluster disaster, and secondly, complete audibility of what is going on in the cluster. But, how do I get started? In this presentation Kasper will cover GitOps as a term, and share his experiences implementing GitOps at Lunar as well as GitOps for Cloud Native Nordics.

About Kasper Nissen:
Kasper is a Cloud Native Computing Foundation Ambassador and organizes meetups in Denmark. He works as a Site Reliability Engineer at Lunar, previously worked as a DevOps & Infrastructure Consultant at LEGO. Kasper wrote his master thesis, "KubeCloud - A Small Scale Cloud Computing Environment", on how Universities could leverage small-scale cloud environments built out of Raspberry Pis running Kubernetes.
