"Infrastructure as Code Cookbook - AWS Cloud Formation in Action", Maciej Józefczyk

Abstract: With a DevOps culture becoming a standard, we face automation everywhere. It simplifies and shortens our daily duties, which de facto leads to cost optimization. Additionally, our infrastructure gets more and more complicated as we evolve towards cloud-native and microservice architectures. That is why Infrastructure as code (IaC) came up. It’s an answer to the growing complexity of our systems. In the webinar, Maciek focuses on what Infrastructure as Code actually means, its main concepts, and gently fills you in on AWS Cloud Formation. We’ll also get some hands-on experience building and spinning up Enterprise Level Infrastructure as Code.

“Flatcar Container Linux - Contribute As You Are”, Mathieu Tortuyaux

Abstract: Flatcar Container Linux is an open-source Linux distribution; with the recent announcements, the community around it is set to grow faster than ever. In this talk, we will see how to get involved in this community at various levels.

Technical contributions to the OS are more than welcome, let's break apart the package addition process with a simple example to get a first idea of what is Flatcar Container Linux development!
