Russell Miles

Chaos Engineering for Cloud Native

CEO of and author

Cloud Native systems are made up of many moving parts that can fail, that are then built on top of and integrated with systems that can also fail. Throw into this mix the need for these parts to be under the stress of constant change and improvement under the increasing pressures of the business to deliver more and faster, and building systems that are reliable enough to have confidence in is a real challenge.

Enter the discipline of Chaos Engineering. Chaos Engineering is specifically concerned with helping you build confidence in your complex and rapidly evolving Cloud Native applications, so you can embrace and thrive on the inherent challenges of the approach.

In this workshop, Russ Miles will show you how to discover weaknesses in your Cloud Native systems and learn how to overcome them using Chaos Engineering. Employing a host of real-world examples and using the free and open source Chaos Toolkit, Russ will demonstrate how you can use Chaos Engineering today to tame your systems and enable them to thrive in the Cloud Native environment.

Sami Alajrami

Taking the Helm - Deploying K8S Applications from Code

PhD and DevOps Consultant, Praqma

Kubernetes can orchestrate application containers by creating K8S resources (pods, deployments, etc.). Helm is the Kubernetes package manager which allows users to package, reuse and distribute K8S resources. In this workshop, you will learn how Helm works and how to package and distribute your K8S applications. You will also learn how to use a declarative syntax to continuously deploy helm charts from code using Helmsman.

Cloud Native Monitoring and Alerting with Prometheus & Grafana

SRE Manager, Poppulo

When it comes to monitoring tools in the Cloud Native space, Prometheus is definitely hard to miss. It has quickly risen to be top of the class, with overwhelming adoption from other pieces of the Cloud Native puzzle.
In this workshop, you will get to learn as much as possible to get you started with Prometheus for monitoring a service-oriented architecture. We will cover: - The core concepts of Prometheus - Instrumenting your code to expose metrics - Querying Prometheus to gain insights on how your applications behave - Defining rules to trigger alerts based on metrics and thresholds - Building Grafana dashboards combining multiple metrics

Ian Crosby


Senior Engineer at Container Solutions

Service meshes are quickly becoming an integral part of any Cloud Native platform and Istio is the most promising of these technologies. It enables intelligent routing and load balancing, as well as providing resilience against failing applications and unreliable networks.
In this workshop, attendees will get hands-on experience with Istio, learn how to integrate it with microservices, to perform advanced traffic routing and isolate application and network failures.
