Spring has sprung and we are back for another great meetup. Join us!
About this event
We have two great talks lined up this month: the first will allow you to quickly identify slowness and unavailability problems in your microservices using observability. The second will discuss CNCF buildpacks to help developers with container orchestration.

Intro and CNCF Updates
From Zero to Hero with Observability in Microservices
By Ricardo Ferreira, Elastic
Do you remember that microservice that you wrote and successfully deployed in production a few weeks ago? I am afraid to tell you that it is underperforming and occasionally generating faults that compromise the rest of the system. Could you please join our war room in an hour to help us fix this as quickly as possible?
For most developers, this reads like the plot of a horror movie. There is nothing scarier for developers than fixing problems that they have no idea about where to start — because their microservice is just a piece of a larger puzzle composed of different other microservices, databases, and distributed systems. Though observability is the right answer for scenarios like this, the reality is that it might not be in place yet to make the difference effectively.
The internet is not running in short supply of resources that explain in detail what this new buzzword called observability is about and why you need it so hard. However, very few explain how to implement it as quickly as possible to troubleshoot scenarios like those mentioned above. This talk will show in 40 minutes how to implement observability from scratch and how to leverage traces from the transactions to identify problems in microservices.
Applications containerized and deployed, 2021 edition
By Anthony Dahane, Adaptive Financial Consulting
When containerization came out (7 years ago!), the only option to containerize an app was to write a Dockerfile and ADD the jar/binary/py/rb/etc. files to the image; container orchestration was not a thing yet.
Since then, many image building tools appeared (bazel, buildah) - even a Java based one! (Jib).
In this talk, we'll focus on CNCF buildpacks that promise to free the developers from building concerns.
