gRPC and OpenTracing. How do we build microservices at Enter by Federico Minzoni

Microservices have revolutionized how we build, deliver and support our applications, putting the scalability at the top. New technologies emerged to manage a new kind of complexity related to communication and visibility. In this talk, I will show you, through real examples, how gRPC and OpenTracing fit exactly into the microservices world to address those issues.

Kubernetes, the CoreOS way by Luca Bruno

This talk will guide the audience through a short tour of a typical Kubernetes setup on top of a CoreOS stack. In particular, it will cover current practices related to a container-based production system including infrastructure setup (terraform), host provisioning (matchbox, ignition, torcx), security and updates (Container Linux, omaha, locksmith), kubernetes bootstrapping (systemd, rkt, bootkube), monitoring (prometheus) and higher level topics (kubelet, CNI, dex, etcd, operators)

Evolutionary Optimization with Go

This talk describes how a complex distributed system with strict performance requirements was prototyped, optimized, and productionized, start-to-finish. We demonstrate how idiomatic use of the standard library, profiling, and ruthless iteration can yield high-quality software in no time at all.

CNI, Raft, CRI rocket.. A chat about craf orchestrator

I would like to speak about what I am actually doing at InfluxData. Sharing with you some ideas about how an orchestrator should work. We will start from a bit of history about distributed system, containers, runtime and so on. Hoping to have a good chat about the future of scheduling and orchestrator.

You, latency and profiling @ GolangUK 2017

When we talk about a 'fast' service we often don't mean one that can process 500MB/s per core, but one that can respond in less than 5ms. However, many causes of latency are invisible to network operations, disk reads, locks, channels, scheduling. Let's see how to use the new tracer to profile them.

So You Wanna Go Fast?

Go's simplicity and concurrency model make it an appealing choice for backend systems, but how does it fare for latency-sensitive applications? In this talk, we explore the other side of the coin by providing some tips on writing high-performance Go and lessons learned in the process. We do a deep dive on low-level performance optimizations in order to make Go a more compelling option in the world of systems programming, but we also consider the trade-offs involved.

#2 CNI and craft container orchestrators

CNI is a powerful library designed to manage container networking. It's a project started by CoreOS and it is used under the hood from a lot of popular OSS projects like kubernetes, the legacy swarm and so on. Lorenzo will show us how it works in practice and how it is under the Cloud Native Foundation. After this talk, Gianluca will start a conversation about container runtime, distributed system and orchestator. He is building the automation tools behind https://cloud.influxdata.com/ the as a service solution to use a hosted InfluxDB and the TICK stack.

#3 Kubernetes from the beginning to Rock! with CoreOS & Cognitio in Turin

During this event, we will have an overview of what an orchestrator is, why we need one and we will learn how and why Cognito, an Italian Startup uses it to support its business. After that, now that we know what it is we will listen about a use case from CoreOS one of the biggest company involved in the Kubernetes development and all the things related to containers.
