About this event

Please join us for our next meet-up in September! We'll be covering two presentations – "Cache First Cloud-Native Microservices with Hazelcast" with Mesut Celik (Hazelcast) + "Managing Kubernetes Clusters with Kubernetes using Cluster AP" with Joonas Bergius (VMware). Please note: we'll be at the OTHER Google office, instead of our usual spot, this time around.

[07:00 - 07:30 PM] Cache First Cloud-Native Microservices with Hazelcast (Mesut Celik, Hazelcast)

As Monolith to Microservices migration almost became mainstream, developers have to think about how their caching strategies will evolve in cloud-native world. In this talk, Mesut will go through hazelcast caching options in cloud-native microservices. First part will be Hazelcast Caching Patterns in Kubernetes Environment. Next part will cover how to apply Hazelcast Caching Patterns into Microservices. As last part, Mesut will go through how to deploy Hazelcast into Kubernetes and handle Day 2 Operations.

BIO: Mesut is currently Cloud Team Lead @ Hazelcast and has 15+ experience in Enterprise Java World . He has lived in Turkey, Belgium and US so far and worked for several companies during that period. He is now on a mission to make Hazelcast best caching solution in cloud environments.

[07:30 - 08:00 PM] Managing Kubernetes Clusters with Kubernetes using Cluster API (Joonas Bergius, VMware)

The promise of Kubernetes is providing a substrate that enables you to run almost any application across any environment without having to care about the underlying infrastructure. Cloud providers have recognized this and made it easier than ever before to get a cluster running with just a few clicks of a button by providing hosted services for Kubernetes.

However, if your organization has cluster configuration needs that can not be met by one of these provider managed services, you are often left to your own devices to create the entire stack for your Kubernetes needs from scratch. Cluster API is a Kubernetes community project that seeks to provide a declarative set of Kubernetes-style APIs for creating clusters and managing their lifecycle across many different environments while giving the end-user flexibility over how things should be configured.

This talk will give you an overview of what makes up Cluster API, how we got to where we are today, a demo of Cluster API in action and what are some of the things still yet to come.

BIO: Joonas Bergius is an Engineering Manager at VMware working on the Kubernetes Cluster API & Lifecycle team. Previously, Joonas worked on the team at DigitalOcean that built the DigitalOcean Kubernetes Service and prior to that helped found the internal Platform-as-a-Service team that first brought Kubernetes to DigitalOcean.
