About this event

Hootsuite is coming to Victoria to share their Cloud Native stories with us! 

We have 3 guest speakers from Hootsuite who will be talking about different aspects of Hootsuite's Cloud Native adventures. So be sure to share this meetup on all your social channels and be ready to tweet!

Kubernetes and its Cloud Native Friends

In this talk we will create an application that uses Kubernetes and some other cloud native tools like Prometheus etc to define what being cloud native is and how it benefits us as developers, operators and organizations as a whole.

From Idea to Production in Five Minutes: Why Your Team Needs a Service Pipeline by Luke Kysow - Hootsuite

At your company, how long does it take you to get a new microservice running on production? At Hootsuite, it takes less than 5 minutes.
In this talk I'll demo the tools that make this all possible. We’ll create a new service from scratch, push it to GitHub, and watch it deploy to production Kubernetes--all in under 5 minutes.
I'll talk about what we've built to get this working and how it's affected our productivity. I'll also talk about how service discovery, routing, and monitoring are built in.

Service Mesh by Mark Eijsermans - Hootsuite
Networking is arguably one of the hardest problems of micro-services. Service discovery, retries, timeout budgets, circuit breaking, telemetry, and observability are all important to run a fault-tolerant system. One option is to make “fat clients” and put this logic in each service. Another option is the “fat middleware” approach, a service mesh which puts this logic into the network. We will discuss what the advantages are, various implementation techniques, and our experiences.
