About this event

Hello everyone !

For this first meetup of the year we're glad to announce 3 talks. This meetup is sponsored by Zenly

"Zenly started in 2011 as a small team of passionate designers, engineers, and entrepreneurs gathered around the idea that frictionless location sharing is the next mobile commodity. Our R&D has brought us to release the best location sharing app in the world ;)

And now, Zenly is the mobile application that lets you instantaneously see where your friends are. We believe that making maps more social and personalised is our opportunity to improve the way people live, communicate and share moments together. Our product empowers people to find themselves, enjoy improvised moments and have fun together."


* Loki: Prometheus-style log aggregation for Kubernetes


Tom Wilkie is VP Product at Grafana Labs, but really he is a software engineer. Previously Tom founded Kausal, a company working on Prometheus, and worked at companies such as Weaveworks, Google, Acunu and XenSource. In his spare time, Tom likes to make craft beer and build 3D printers

Loki is a horizontally-scalable, highly-available, multi-tenant log aggregation system inspired by Prometheus. It is designed to be very cost effective and easy to operate, as it does not index the contents of the logs, but rather a set of labels for each log stream.

In this talk we will discuss the motivation behind Loki, its design and architecture, and what the future holds. Its early days - the project was only launched at KubeCon Seattle in Dec 2018 - so this is a great opportunity to influence the direction the project goes!

* Deploy kubernetes on OpenStack through Terraform

Alexandre joined Enix as CEO in 2018. Over the past 15 years he spent time dealing with technical and management while staying an open-source enthusiast.
He previously launched a VR (Virtual Reality) business based on a Docker applicative stack, which noticeably orchestrate massive encoding of VR videos.
His personal interests are climbing and tinkering home automation.

A not so long feedback on how to use Terrafrom 0.11 in order to install kubernetes over a set of OpenStack virtual machines
With a particular focus on :

* kubeadm for high availability installations
* Terraform OpenStack provider and provisionners
* the new kubernetes / cloud provider integration with cloud-controller-manager
* and some security hints


* K8s | First 6 months in production
Technical Crew Debriefing


Loïc Le Dru:
Team leader at Carrefour since 2017, he begins working on private clouds 4 years ago.
Working on public cloud more recently, he gather aside him a great team of devops and coachs
with the same goal: design build run and support secure, shared, robusts kubernetes cluster to host several containerized production workloads.

Vincent Gramer
DevOps Consultant at Zenika, ex java dev, he started with craftsmanship and naturally migrated to DevOps

Alex Palesandro, PhD
Cloud Engineer at D2SI, he joined the K8s team at Carrefour in 2018. Passionated by DevOps, his main interests are distributed and multi-cloud infrastructures.

6 month, 500 running containers, 3 environments. In this talk, we present a technical feedback about the K8s adoption on Azure at Carrefour. We cover all the steps which lead us to build and operate our OneCaas platform, which is attracting more and more new projects. Obviously, we focus on pains, because running fine is boring.
To complete the talk, we will REX on our DevOps Experience, an enabler for the success of the platform.
Free gift: Yes, we are all “on call” and we love it!

See you there !
