About this event


Hi Everyone!

We want to welcome the community BACK TO IN PERSON Meetups! We will try and do this monthly as long as we can find venues to host.

For our first get-together on the Peninsula (in 2 years! Wow!) we are teaming up with our friends in the awesome DoK (Data on Kubernetes) Community again to host via our 2 user groups.

On August 18, Intuit has kindly offered to host our user group in their Mountain View campus. Join us at 6:00 pm for beer and pizza in the courtyard, and at 6:30 pm for our featured presentations! Oh, and I'll have a handful of goodies, including some t-shirts to hand out during the networking reception! :) :) :)


Talk #1

Druid powering AI at Intuit

Shrivardhan Rao - Software Engineer - Intuit

At Intuit we collect Operational data (open telemetry traces, metrics, events) at scale to perform real-time analytics and streaming anomaly detection. To provide a rich user experience on the data we collect and the insights we publish in real-time, we run Apache Druid on K8s. This talk will discuss about how we deploy and scale Druid on K8s. We will also touch on strategies employed for HA, upgrades, performance testing, and showcase real use cases.

Key takeaways:

Mechanics of running a time series database on K8s

Strategies for AuthN, AuthZ and HA

Talk #2

Life in the Herd: Cloud Native ClickHouse

Robert Hodges - CEO, Altinity

Of all services, databases are perhaps the most resistant to the cloud native cattle-not-pets model. So what does it really mean to run a large database on Kubernetes? Using ClickHouse as an example, we'll discuss the changes from software packaging to operational management and learn how mission-critical databases find true happiness in a cloud native world.

COVID-19 safety measures

*COVID-19 vaccination required*

There will be food and beverages served outside in the courtyard during the networking times, so if you wish to wear a mask, you will have options to eat outdoors.

If you have RSVP'd YES you will get instructions on Wednesday on how to submit your vaccination status to speed up the admission on the day of the event. You can also do it on-site, but it will be faster to preregister. Your information will absolutely not be stored or used for anything other than Thursday's registration.

The event host is instituting the above safety measures for this event. Meetup is not responsible for ensuring, and will not independently verify, that these precautions are followed.
