We're excited to host talks by Thomas Wodarek and Dinesh Pillai on cloud-computing tools and techniques. Many thanks to Blue Medora and its Chief Technology Officer, Mike Kelly, for providing the venue for this meeting.
At 6 PM, Thomas Wodarek will present on "Google Cloud Platform" using open-source examples and a Ruby app that will run the full gambit from bare code to fully functioning and serving traffic with a database and storage back-end. He will demonstrate monitoring, alerting, and possibly data pipelines if time permits. Mr. Wodarek is an independent consultant working in the DevOps space around Grand Rapids. He works with containers and orchestrators in the cloud, keeping websites up and queries flowing. When he’s not building software or giving talks, he can be found running a soundboard for a random event or singing as a Tenor.
Refreshments will be served at 7 PM courtesy of Blue Medora and Mike Kelly.
At 7:15 PM, Dinesh Pillai will present on "DevOps in Azure using VSTS." Microsoft VSTS is an Azure tool that is used to plan, code, test, build, deploy and maintain pipelines. Mr. Pillai will demonstrate the process of building and deploying in multiple environments, commenting on issues and best practices.
The last 5 minutes of the meeting are reserved to solicit your suggestions for topics, presenters, and venues for future meetings.
We look forward to seeing you there.
