About this event

We are excited to host the 14th edition of the Cloud Native Computing Linz meetup!

We'd like to thank hello again for hosting the Meetup!

--------- The Speakers ---------


Hubert Ströbitzer

Hubert was a Software Engineer focusing on backend topics in various programming languages around the JVM. Then, the DevOps movement raised serious doubts about his work. After isolating in the Austrian Alps, fighting against wolves and dragons, he put his focus on Ops matters.

Hubert is a Linux Foundation trainer for CKA and CKAD and contributed to the CKA exam questions.

Michael Schöndorfer

Michael is a co-founder and CTO at hello again, a startup that has specialized in developing customer loyalty solutions for small and medium-sized businesses.

After several side gigs during university he got his first real experience growing a startup called indoo.rs from 3 to over 30 employees.

Around 4 years ago he started a new challenge at hello again where he could put this experience to good use.


--------- The Talks ---------


Michael Schöndorfer - The art of scaling without scaling your DevOps-Team

hello again was founded in 2017 with 4 co-founders which included 2 developers. During our journey so far, the infrastructure was until recently still managed by those initial 2 developers (that both manage a team as their main task).

This was only possible due to the possibilities of using Cloud services. In the talk I will show how we achieved this, where we ran into issues (e.g. scaling) and which errors we made that you should try to avoid.

Hubert Ströbitzer - The 7 deadly sins in Kubernetes

Let us jump on that Kubernetes train. It is just another tool for running my apps. Right? ... Wrong!!!

As Kubernetes becomes mainstream established companies want to benefit from the advantages Kubernetes brings in, too. However, a lot of them underestimate the technical and organizational implications they will face.

What happens if you do not care about Resource Requests and Limits? Why do you lose data because of the Shell Form in your Dockerfiles? Why do you have to reconsider how to scale your apps? Why will Kubernetes change your organizational architecture? Why do lots of projects start with one cluster and end up with lots of them?

This talk will help you understand the pitfalls of not caring about best practices in Kubernetes. You will hear war stories about failed migration projects and learn how to be successful with yours.
