Cisco has been kind enough to sponsor and host the next Microservices Meetup at their office in Wallisellen, Zurich.
We are finalizing the agenda and will be sharing it shortly. Get ready for a great evening of talks and networking!
6.00pm: Doors Open
6.30pm: Wuming Zhang, Swisscom: Voice - the beginning and the end of artificial intelligence
7.00pm: Carlos León, Portable Pipelines
7.30pm: Cisco, Kubernetes as a Service
8.00pm: Networking and Apéro
Wuming Zhang: Public Cloud Evangelist, Swisscom works with the computer for the last two decades, about ten years with cloud computing. Geek & love good beers!
Carlos León: As an engineer, Carlos is an automation addict.
As a strategist, he favors pragmatic solutions that focus on the human side of things rather than on processes.
Carlos brings his own original style to public speaking, bringing the nerd and the business together to fill the gap that is forever present in the industry to improve engineer happiness and business performance.
1. Voice - the beginning and the end of artificial intelligence. There are[masked] Alexa voice skills today. Do we need to build one more?! An introduction about voice future, voice user interface, and Alexa Skills Builder, where and how to get started.
2. Portable Pipelines - Either at the beginning or during the course of a project you will come to evaluate several CICD tools for your code. Most of these tools are very straight forward to use. However, chances are that if the tool doesn’t meet your expectations in the long term you will want to evaluate other tools and perhaps migrate. This imposes a big challenge for teams since there is no standard for CICD pipelines, so the migration process can either be very painful or not worth the effort, locking you in the tool that you chose initially.
Another big issue with the normal approach to pipelines is that their test-ability is rather hard to do or very slow because the feedback loop is so long.
In this talk, we are going to go through the best practices to make your pipeline portable from one tool to the other and make it testable from your local environment. We will explore real-life migration scenarios and you will learn how to make your existing and new pipelines work from vendor to vendor transparently.
This talk is directed mainly to developers and operators; however, managers can also benefit from learning from the high-level concepts and bring the whole idea/strategy back home to have their teams implement it, especially if they are starting or in the middle of a CI tool migration process
