  • Title: Staying Informed with Kubernetes Informers
  • Speaker: Robert Ross (Bobby Tables) from FireHydrant
  • Date: Wed, June 19, 2019
  • Location: Compass, 90 Fifth Ave, New York, NY 10011

Kubernetes state is changing all the time. Pods are being created. Deployments are adding more replicas. Load balancers are being created from services. All of these things can happen without anyone noticing. But sometimes we need to notice, however, for when we need to react to such events. What if we need to push the change to an audit log? When if we want to inform a Slack room about a new deployment? In Kubernetes, this is possible with the informers that are baked into the API and Go client. In this talk we'll learn how informers work, and how to receive updates when resources change using a simple Go application.

SPEAKER BIO:

Bobby is the founder of FireHydrant.io, and also previously worked as a staff software engineer at Namely, and also built things at DigitalOcean. He likes bleeding edge tech and making software that helps teams build better better systems. From deploying Spinnaker, Istio, and Kubernetes, he has cursed at a lack of docs and code spelunked through the code and loves telling the war stories about them.

NOTE: The meetings are now on THURSDAY.

  • Title: How to build a tamper-evident CI/CD system
  • Speaker: Trishank Karthik Kuppusamy, Datadog, Inc

TALK DESCRIPTION: CI/CD is critical to any DevOps operation today, but when attackers compromise it, they get to distribute malicious software to millions of unsuspecting users. We present how Datadog used TUF and in-toto to develop, to the best of our knowledge, the industry's first end-to-end verified pipeline that automatically builds integrations for the Datadog agent. That is, even if this pipeline is compromised, users should not be able to install malware. We will show a demonstration of our pipeline in production being used to protect users of the Datadog agent, and describe how you can use TUF + in-toto secure your own pipeline.

SPEAKER BIO: Trishank Karthik Kuppusamy is a security engineer at Datadog, Inc. Previously, he led the research and development of The Update Framework (TUF) and Uptane at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering. He is also a member of the IEEE-ISTO Uptane standardization alliance, and an Editor of in-toto Enhancements.

Space is limited. Please RSVP soon!

Here are my notes from last night's NYCDevOps meeting.

Title: Using innersourcing to break down organizational barriers
Speaker: Aroon Gursahaney, Verizon

This was one of the best talks I've seen in a while because it was entirely new material for me. I haven't heard of a company doing anything like this.

Last night I learned:

  • You can replace legacy systems by crowdsourcing parts of the project to people around the company in exchange for giving them the opportunity to learn new technologies, tools, and devops practices
  • You can gamify culture change in an organization
  • You cam make crowdsourcing the norm, not the exception.
  • Money motivates but a bigger motivation is interesting projects and the opportunity to learn, and to do something new.
  • 21 teams. 12 outside his VP's organization, 106 people participated.
  • In 2 days of the game, 2 months of progress was made on the project.
  • People took tasks not in their expertise areas, but where they could learn the most.
  • Seeing your code in production in other people's projects is a big source of pride, which is a big source of motivation.

Next month's speaker will be announced soon on the NYCDevOps meetup page.
