About this event

Hi folks!

**TLDR; You can't enter without ID, write the number of yours down when you RSVP.**

I would like to start thanking you for your patience with this meetup since last year we were able to organise just two events 😱In part this was caused because I (Álex) was living abroad and that makes it a little bit more difficult. To change that we will need to start strong this 2019, so, happy new year! and:

*Kubernetes journey at Tuenti (Fernando Crespo, SRE @ Tuenti)*
_antes to esto era campo_
We have been using Kubernetes since 1.0, that presented a lot of challenges that we manage to figure out from automated provisioning to advanced scheduling settings in a large and complex hybrid infrastructure

*Azure Cosmos DB: how a planetary scale database was designed and implemented (Diego Parrilla, Dev Tech Advocacy Lead @ Microsoft)*
With the arrival of large cloud computing providers (hyperscalers) the first wave of managed database services arrived. These services mimicked what we had seen before in our data centers, our servers, and even our development devices running managed SQLServer, MySQL, Posgresql, MariaDB, Redis... But now a new generation of database services has arrived and they only make sense in these mega-suppliers. Horizontal autoscaling, replication in dozens of availability zones, minimal latencies, CAP theorem challenging... and on top of that multi-schema databases. This talk explains how Cosmos DB was born due to Microsoft's massive scaling needs with XBOX, the design decisions made and their impact, how it compares and how other competitors do it. Finally, an example of how my globally deployed side-project Apility.io (with no link to Microsoft) could benefit of Cosmos DB.

Both talks are going to be explaining real use cases for both technologies without any kind of BS sales pitch (one of the speaker's dixit) so I am pretty sure we will enjoy them.

Also, both talks are going to be in English and we will have networking afterwards, so join us even if you are not from here 🇪🇸

I would like to end up the meetup description thanking Tuenti for the space and Microsoft for the drinks and pizza! We don't have video this time since Autentia was already busy for this date, so if you know any other option or you want to record it yourself, please let me know.

See you soon!
