In-person event

About this event

We are excited to host the June/2024 edition of the Cloud Native Linz meetup!
We'd like to thank Cloudflight for hosting the Meetup!

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

Martin Strigl

After buying his first CD Pack of SUSE Linux 4.3 back in 1996 and compiling almost every interesting bit of Software (including X) from scratch Martin switched Distribution and quickly fell in love with RedHat Linux by using it regularly beginning with Zoot. Ever since then he tried to contribute back all the little piece of code he wrote while driving a Serverfarm in a way that nowadays people tend to call DevOps Style. During the last 20 years Martin had the pleasure to gain a lot of fundamental knowledge along the whole stack from L1 - L7. The last 5 years brought a strong focus on container technologies with all its surroundings (like orchestration frameworks), IAAS and software defined storage.


João Grassi

These days João focus on working on all things observability at Dynatrace. He is a contributor to the OpenTelemetry project and other tools.

In "the past" he worked as .NET back-end developer. Writing a bunch of services powered by ASP.NET Core/.NET Core. He also dips his toes in front-end development from time to time, mostly with Angular.

João is the co-author of NuGet Trends - A useful tool for package maintainers to see the download rate of their packages and also for people interested in packages popularity over time.

He occasionally blog about what he is up to here. (100% ad-free, no spying crap 👍).

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

Martin Strigl - Inspecting and Manipulating Running Containers

If you ever wanted to do stuff in a running container where the image doesn't include the necessary binaries, or you don't want to blow up your image with debugging stuff but still want to be able to debug some things lateron when the container is running this talk might give you the right hints.


João Grassi - Observability on the Edge: Envoy Distributed Tracing with OpenTelemetry

In the dynamic world of microservices, robust observability is paramount for diagnosing issues, ensuring performance, and maintaining reliability. Envoy, a high-performance edge and service proxy, plays a critical role in modern service architectures by facilitating seamless service-to-service communication.

This talk presents an overview of recent OpenTelemetry features contributed to the Envoy project that greatly enhance its native observability capabilities. We will also explore practical steps on how to get started with and use these enhancements.

Whether you build and maintain cloud-native applications or simply want to learn more about OpenTelemetry support in Envoy, this session will provide you with insights into leveraging observability features within your service meshes.
