Utilising OSS to Operate a Centralised, Globally Distributed Cloud Platform - Josh Mickey, Condé Nast International

Condé Nast International is home to some of the largest online publications in the world - including Vogue, GQ, Wired, and Vanity Fair. In an effort to provide a cohesive vision for these brands across more than 30 markets, a truly global platform was required. Utilising AWS and Kubernetes at its core, the platform officially launched in September 2018 and serves over 200 million unique visitors/month.

Of course, operating Cloud Native Infrastructure is more than just spinning up a container orchestrator! Auxiliary services are required in order to operate it effectively and provide developers with a true platform experience. Open Source Software (OSS) forms the backbone for much of what we do. As such, this talk will be focusing on how Condé Nast International utilises OSS to effectively operate multiple Kubernetes clusters across the world, paying special attention to observability, testing, application delivery, and developer experience.


Cloud Native Telegraf - David McKay, InfluxData

Telegraf is an agent for collecting, processing, aggregating, and writing metrics.

With over 200 plugins, Telegraf can fetch metrics from a variety of sources, allowing you to build aggregations and write those metrics to InfluxDB, Prometheus, Kafka, and more.

In this talk, we will take a look at some of the lesser known, but awesome, plugins that are often overlooked; that allow Telegraf to monitor your cloud native applications.

David is a Developer Advocate 🥑 for InfluxData, the company behind InfluxDB.

As a serial user group organiser, Cloud Native advocate, and lover of esoteric programming languages, David is always on the hunt to learn and share knowledge with others in fun and exciting ways.


Automating Deployment Pipelines with Machine Learning - Andrew Page, Harness

Imagine if you could apply machine learning to real developer use cases? This talk will detail 7 unsupervised machine learning algorithms and how they can be applied to a deployment pipeline so that developers can automate the QA, testing, and deployment verification of code.
