Kubernetes: Enterprise Logging Workshop - SOLD OUT

Workshop Details

Kubernetes provide a powerful abstraction for you to run microservices anywhere and scale to any size. Monitoring a Kubernetes cluster can be challenging specifically when dealing with Logging.

The Kubernetes Enterprise Logging workshop is a full hands-on session where you will learn the basics of Logging, how to implement an unified logging layer in your cluster focusing on an end-to-end solution ready for production. 

Workshop Outline: 

  • Introduction to Logging
  • Logging and Microservices
  • Fluentd and Fluentd Enterprise
  • Kubernetes: collecting and enrich logs with metadata
  • Enterprise Logging:
    • Performance and optimizations
    • Buffering mechanisms
    • Logs routing
    • Elasticsearch
    • Apache Kafka
    • Splunk

Date: Tuesday, December 5

Kubernetes on AWS Hands-On Workshop, taught by AWS - SOLD OUT

Workshop Details

Kubernetes is a popular cloud-native open-source orchestration platform for container management, scaling and automated deployment. It includes a rich set of features such as service discovery, multi-tenancy, stateful containers, resource usage monitoring, and rolling updates. Some of the questions we will go over are: 

  • How do we deploy using infrastructure technologies like CloudFormation and Terraform?
  • How can CLI clients such as kops, kubeadm and minikube be used to interact with Kubernetes?
  • What does a clean CI/CD pipeline look like using AWS?
  • How do we integrate with tools such as Maven?

In this code-driven workshop, you will learn how to package, deploy, scale and monitor your Java application using Kubernetes and the AWS cloud.

Date: Tuesday, December 5
Time: 9:00am - 4:00pm
Location: Meeting Room 9B, Level 3 at ACC
Registration Cost: $50 - fee goes toward KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Diversity Scholarships

Using Istio to Build a Cloud Native Service Mesh - SOLD OUT

Workshop Details

Using Istio to Build a Cloud Native Service Mesh: AM event (9:00am - 12:00pm)

In the adoption of cloud native technologies developers have found one of the greatest challenges is the integration of services in distributed systems. The challenges include service discovery, load balancing, fault tolerance, end-to-end monitoring, dynamic routing for canary deployments and most importantly securing the communication channels.

Istio solves these problems by providing a layer of infrastructure between the services and the network that allows the service communication to be controlled outside the application code. This fundamentally changes how services are connected, managed and secured.

During thisworkshop you will gain hands-on experience to understand how Istio is changing the landscape of cloud native applications. We will walk through deploying each piece of Istio alongside a microservice application running in Kubernetes and in the process create a service mesh to control the communication. We will show features of Istio such as:

  • Traffic Management, Resilient Communication and Load Balancing between Services
  • Policy Enforcement and Rate Limiting
  • Telemetry, Monitoring and Reporting
  • Securing Communication between
  • Microservices Canary Deployments

Istio Mini Summit: PM event (1:00pm - 5:00pm)

Join experts from Google, IBM, Tigera, and more to hear the latest developments on the Istio project. Connect with the community to hear about use cases, capabilities, and more.

Date: Tuesday, December 5

Time: 9:00am - 5:00pm
Location: Meeting Room 10A, Level 3 at ACC
Registration Cost: $0 - We have room for 100 attendees, so please sign up early.
