SRE for Everyone: Making Tomorrow Better Than Today
Wouldn't everyone doing operations work love more time to focus on exciting projects? Build out new platforms, improve performance, contribute to open source projects, pay down tech debt, level-up their automation — all things that add value to your company and advance your career.

But instead, we find ourselves buried in interruptions and repetitive work. Imagine the things you could do, if you just had the time to get to it.

This talk is about applying ideas from the SRE movement that can be applied to any organization. Ideas that can help us all make tomorrow better than today.

Denial of trust: the new attacks
As our software goes, so goes our society. From the biases we inject into algorithms, to flawed security trust models in our architecture, to 'dark patterns' in design, to social platforms abused for propaganda, we are vulnerable to trust-based attacks. In order to fight these micro- and macro-level vulnerabilities, we need to rethink our steps all along the way.

Enacting Standards
My mission: Deconstruct and simplify a complex, multi-layered infrastructure pipeline with no standards, define those standards, create individual tools that conform to them, and address edge cases. Lessons learned from my experience enacting and implementing standards in a large organization.

It is easy to sacrifice standards on the altar of temporary convenience. The solution: Improve the standard where necessary, even when it is hard. However, what do you do when you have _already_ offered sacrifices on the altar of convenience, over and over? Now there is a system laden with technical debt, and in order to move forward, that debt must be paid down.

Come learn about our year-long journey to _write and enact standards_ for our tools (and, by extension, all APIs published by Google), _refactor our tools_ to conform to those standards, _deal with the edge cases_ that we could not or would not standardize, and ultimately **reduce the cost** of our infrastructure pipeline. Additionally, come learn about how I intend to automate myself out of a job in 2020.

How to find (and retain) your hardest to hire positions REDUX
About 6 years ago I had the pleasure of coming to Austin to speak at a conference for the first time. This talk was about how to retain your hardest to hire folks. It turns out 6 years is a lifetime in technology, let's revisit this talk, see what still works, and what can be improved.

Back in the spring of 2013, I had this idea floating around in my head. I had watched so many companies spend countless time and energy in order to recruit the best staff possible. But after you were in the door, it seems like none of them really cared about how you might retain all those people you spent years investing in. I had to pleasure of giving my first conference talk ever at DevOpsDays Austin about this topic of "how to retain your hardest to hire positions". Why do companies spend FAR more resources to hire new people, when losing any one of their existing employees would in many cases be a massive hit to the productivity of the company.

Now - 6 years has gone by. A lifetime in the technology space. To give you perspective - I gave this original talk BEFORE Docker was announced by Solomon Hykes at Pycon 2013. It can be hard to imagine a world before tools like Docker, Kubernetes, or even concepts like Serverless took over the day to day conversation. So much of HOW we get work done has changed in the last 6 years, has anything changed with how we recruit and retain our valuable employees?

Let's revisit this talk and see what still works, what needs improvement, and new learnings from the last few years.

UX is driving you crazy, a black throwing off timelines and killing ideas. UX doesn't seem Lean or Agile. Can't anybody make wireframes? Can't we circumvent or exclude these people?

DevOps is truly about so much more than how developers connect with IT, how infrastructure is managed, and how frameworks can be improved. It's about recognizing how many teams are truly involved in the software development process and finding better ways to make sure everybody is at the table.

Container-Based Pipelines
Abstract: Most people think "adopting containers" means deploying Docker images to production. In practice, adopting containers in the continuous integration process provides visible benefits even if the production environment are VMs. In this talk, we will explore this pattern by packaging all build tools inside Docker containers.


Container-based pipelines allow us to create and reuse building blocks to make pipeline creation and management MUCH easier. It's like building with Legos instead of clay. This not only makes pipeline creation and maintenance much easier, it also solves a myriad of classic CI/CD problems such as:
  • Putting an end to version conflicts in build machines
  • Eliminating build machine management in general
  • Step portability and maintenance
In a very real sense, Docker-based pipelines reflect lessons learned from microservices in CI/CD pipelines. We will share tips and tricks for running these kinds of pipelines while using Codefresh as a CI/CD solution as it fully supports pipelines where each build step is running on its own Docker image.

Adapting Agile for Small SOC Teams with Azure DevOps: How-to and Lessons Learned
Can Agile work for security teams? Let's discuss practical ways in which security teams can adopt agile processes and use DevOps tools to automate and track SOC tasks, as well as some of the challenges that can be encountered when attempting this endeavor. It's time for security to become Agile!

Security Operation Center (SOC) teams are responsible for protecting company assets by auditing, detecting, and remediating security threats in their networks and applications. As teams of developers evolve to put people over processes, and as DevOps makes its way into the core processes of many organizations, it becomes necessary for SOC teams to grow in that same direction to enable effective collaboration between security and development teams. In this talk, we will discuss our experiences using Agile and DevOps for building a SOC team. We will also consider how SOC teams can implement agile processes and use Azure DevOps to automate and track of SOC tasks, use Git for keeping track of security configurations, and document processes that enable more effective collaboration with DevOps teams in a practical way. Lastly, we will discuss some challenges that we have encountered when implementing Agile for SOC small teams in organizations that still rely on waterfall methodologies for most of their processes.

Jenkins and Kubernetes - Secret Agents in the Cloud
Learn about CI/CD as a practice and see how easy it is to scale a Jenkins environment with ephemeral build agents in a Kubernetes cluster.

Running containerized, ephemeral build agents in Jenkins allows you to isolate application dependencies and dynamically scale in response to fluctuations in CI/CD workloads, but you need a container orchestration solution or you trade in the management of individual Jenkins agents for management of individual container engines. In this session, you'll learn how to dynamically provision Jenkins agents to run on a Kubernetes cluster and build, test, and deploy applications to Kubernetes using Jenkins' scripted pipeline.

Conversation: Growing Pains - What happens when your product gets BIG?
Over the past 7 years, our product has grown from about 10 developers to over 100. How has our automation, infrastructure, process and culture evolved to handle that growth and still deliver a quality product?

Our product started in 2012 with a handful of developers, running a few short product builds per day, each executing about 10,000 test cases. Today, we have over 100 developers working on the product, with a build and test infrastructure running over 250 builds and 20 million test cases per day. At the same time, we have moved to a continuous delivery model that reduced our release cycle from once per year to once per month. Our tools, infrastructure, development process and culture have continually evolved to handle the growth, but the evolution hasn't always been pretty. This talk will share some of the major changes we have made related to source code management, build management, infrastructure scaling, team organization, development culture, test prioritization, documentation and automation to handle the product's growth. Which changes have worked for us, which have failed miserably, and what are we still struggling to figure out?

Conversation: Everything I know about incident response I learned on an ambulance
Using my experience as an EMT and time working in ERs and ambulances, places where incident response can be a high-stress environment, I present a high-level framework for beginner and intermediate incident responders that will help them calmly and systematically tackle incidents.

Effective incident response is more than just "get alerted, fix a problem." Having a systematic approach that discourages "tunnel vision," helps responders develop their own intuition, style, and procedures are critical in not only solving problems but also in preventing responder burnout.

Knowing what to monitor, how, and what questions to ask of your internal customers and of your monitoring platform itself can be difficult. Using my experience as an EMT and time working in ERs and ambulances, places where incident response can be a high-stress environment, I present a high-level framework for beginner and intermediate incident responders that will help them calmly and systematically tackle incidents.

I'll cover things like:

Your patient's vital signs
Treating with time
The difference between emergency response and surgery
What triage really means
Treating your patient and not the monitor
Sleeping or dead?
An acronym to help you always ask the right questions

Conversation: EKS - the good, the bad and the ugly
While I love the idea of managed Kubernetes and AWS in general, EKS does not solve all of the problems and has significant limitations. Our talk is about exposing some of the good and bad of running EKS as your managed Kubernetes service.

Think EKS is the answer to all of your Kubernetes problems? Think again. While the managed Kubernetes service provided by AWS does reduce some of the overhead of supporting your Kubernetes cluster, it does not eliminate all of your Kubernetes workload. We will discuss the good, bad and a little of the ugly that EKS offers as a service.

Conversation: Continuous Improvement: DevOps and Mental Illness
Dealing with any neuro-diversity is difficult and stigmatized, but lessons learned from DevOps and Complex Systems management have helped me improve how I handle situations. These lessons can be applied broadly and shift our thinking to how DevOps extends beyond tech alone.

Mental illness is stigmatized and hard to talk about publicly. Doubly so in the tech industry where we assign much of our personal value to our brains. I want to share my struggles with mental health and the lessons I've learned from Systems operation and DevOps that have helped me get by and frame my struggle in a manageable way.

I want to start a conversation to:

- Help reduce the stigma of Mental Illness by talking about it
- Provide some illustration of things that have helped me, so hopefully they can help you
- Show how the concepts of DevOps have application reaching beyond High Technology
- Spark further conversation about Mental health in tech
- Hopefully provide a new group and community for those for whom mental health is a concern

How DRUD uses GitOps, Codefresh, and Kustomize to manage their Kubernetes deployments
Abstract: Git flow has worked well to introduce a change management process to your codebase. GitOps is an approach to managing your configuration as code using that same SCM strategy. CI/CD has been another game changer in enabling developers to deliver functionality at the speed of business but has grown increasingly complex. At DRUD, we treat our pipelines and release process as reviewable code. In this session, we will share our strategy for how we manage our CD pipelines to deploy our custom operators to Kubernetes with Codefresh’s declarative API.

Utilizing metrics, histograms, and traces to tackle challenges of observability in modern applications
With metrics, histograms, and traces, we finally have a complete picture of the microservices application that will empower us to not only get a pulse of the overall health of their application, but also drill down into the specific misbehaving areas more accurately and faster than ever.

The modern application landscape is changing fast! A microservices architecture modularizes your application where each service can be built and scaled independently of the other. But with great power comes great responsibility. It is also ever more challenging for developers and operations to not only monitor, but to be able to quickly triage and identify the pain points along with the speed of continuous integration and deployment. In this talk, we are going to explore how utilizing metrics, histograms, and traces can help tackle challenges of modern applications observability riddles.

Shifting Left: Bake Security into Your CI/CD Pipeline
Abstract: Enterprises are doing what they can to foster a “security first” mentality within their IT organizations, but don’t always have the necessary skills in-house and may not take the steps needed to build security into an application by design.

As DevOps accelerate application development and deployment, implementing security as an afterthought is no longer an option, since that approach cannot handle the velocity and scale of agile application deployments. Automation is key to embedding security into the DevOps pipeline and ensuring that code is secure before it’s deployed - not after.

During this session, Aqua Security’s Raj Seshadri will show you how you can bake security into the development process, seamlessly, to ensure that your applications are fully secured throughout the development lifecycle.”

Your Build Server Is On Fire
Scaling is hard, especially when the thing you need to scale is your CI system. At a certain point, conventional approaches break down and the blog posts telling you the five easy steps to solve your problems start disappearing. It's time to assess the problems and find solutions.

When setting up a company for success, one of the least-invested systems is CI infrastructure, and yet with rampant growth and large Engineering departments it inevitably comes to the fore when it cannot scale. Increased build durations, increased queue times, and flakey test systems are symptomatic as this problem compounds. Once this tipping point is reached, it is a scramble to find the bottlenecks and patching and hoping it never happens again. In this talk, we'll go over ways to identify and mitigate in the moment, as well as approaches used to make our CI systems as scalable as our application code.

Container-based Pipelines
Abstract: Most people think "adopting containers" means deploying Docker images to production. In practice, adopting containers in the continuous integration process provides visible benefits even if the production environment are VMs. In this talk, we will explore this pattern by packaging all build tools inside Docker containers.


Container-based pipelines allow us to create and reuse building blocks to make pipeline creation and management MUCH easier. It's like building with Legos instead of clay. This not only makes pipeline creation and maintenance much easier, it also solves a myriad of classic CI/CD problems such as:
  • Putting an end to version conflicts in build machines
  • Eliminating build machine management in general
  • Step portability and maintenance
In a very real sense, Docker-based pipelines reflect lessons learned from microservices in CI/CD pipelines. We will share tips and tricks for running these kinds of pipelines while using Codefresh as a CI/CD solution as it fully supports pipelines where each build step is running on its own Docker image.

Maintaining And Deploying an Event Streams MicroService Application
Developing locally and then deploying to the cloud can be tedious. This talk is about our experiences deploying a new Java EE microservice in our stock trader application, and how we integrated Apache Kafka, Kubernetes Secrets, Helm Charts, Docker workarounds, and Service brokers to make it easier.

A typical microservice flow involves at least two services interacting with each other via rest endpoints, and persisting that data in a database. Apache Kafka provides an alternative approach allowing for a Cluster to intact with Streams. Producers ‘publish', and Consumers ‘subscribe' to these streams. Apache Kafka is typically used in building real-time applications to reliably get and transform data from streams. Using a Stock Trading application , resembling most stock trading apps online, we will show how we integrated Apache Kafka, and how we were able to produce events from a Portfolio microservice, consume them in a Trade-History microservice, and persist that data in Mongo DB. This application is containerized with Docker, and deployed to a cloud environment using Kubernetes and Helm. We will focus on some of the techniques we used regarding Kubernetes Secrets, Shared Environment Variables, docker tricks, and methods and technologies we found that helped us develop and test locally and deploy just as easily with minimal changes.

Why is Kubernetes On-Prem so much harder?
Is your On-prem K8s blender on fire? Let's figure out how to combine Kubernetes and BYO Infrastructure in a safe way that minimized operator risk. DevOps first, Margaritas after!

Kubernetes is hyped as the end of infrastructure; however, it's still mainly a public cloud only platform. This talk lives that the intersection of the dream of Kubernetes as the perfect platform abstraction and the reality of snow flaked on-premises operations.

We'll explore the requirements inside and outside of Kubernetes core operational needs, like load balancing and certificates, that make on-premises deployments tricky and discuss ways that to provide those services in a constructive, automated way. The goal is to provide a manageable list of considerations for people looking to manage their own Kubernetes deployments in cloud, on-premises or edge.

We'll also include bonus topics that relate to Day-2 ops for Kubernetes including: community cluster automation efforts, Kubernetes on metal, and immutable live-image installs.

For far too long, dev and ops teams have had to combat the indiscriminate use of fear, uncertainty and doubt (FUD) from security and compliance teams.  While we all want rugged and resilient software and systems, we have to realize that there's a business behind most of these systems and a balance needs to be struck between getting things deployed and security concerns.  As a reformed security professional, I'd like to start the conversation by providing example of how to combat the worst of what security teams have to offer.  The goal is to help end the back and forth so everyone can move on with the read task at hand.

Conversation: Defending SLOs - Error Budget Burn Rate Alerting using Datadog
While Datadog is not an ideal medium for creating error budget burn rate alerts, it is possible to approximate the SRE Workbook Chapter 5 recommended "Multiwindow, Multi-Burn-Rate Alerts". If you're using Datadog, come by and see the setup.

This talk walks through my setup of Multiwindow, Multi-Burn-Rate Alerts on Datadog (See section 6 of [Chapter 5](https://landing.google.com/sre/workbook/chapters/alerting-on-slos/)). Datadog has a lot of gotcha's, so it is not very straightforward to do. I'll show example Datadog alert (screenshots/slideware most likely) and explain what the various bits do. Leading up to the slideware demo will be an explanation of Multiwindow, Multi-Burn-Rate Alerts, which is likely to be regurgitation of what's in the SRE Workbook. The main takeaway is the details of what to put in the Datadog monitor fields to get what we want out of it. I'm not affiliated with Datadog, but we use it at work and I assume a lot of the audience may too.

While learning how to do this, I didn't find burn-rate alerts intuitive at all and had to spend a few days understanding what the formulas mean. For example, what are the units of "burn rate"? Why do we monitor for burn rate being greater than 7 if we want to be notified about running out of error budget within 48 hours on a 2 week SLO measuring period? The plan is to share all those details in Open Space as various questions come up.

Hybrid CI/CD with Kubernetes and Codefresh. How to create CI/CD pipelines that access behind the firewall services
Abstract: Even though the public cloud has changed the way companies deploy and run applications, there are several cases (finance/healthcare) where all services of an organization are running in secure on-premise datacenters behind strict firewalls, in remote storefronts, or even in mobile locations with low connectivity. In this talk, we will see how you can include these secure and remote services in your CI/CD pipelines, without compromising security and without opening firewall ports. We will use Codefresh and the new Codefresh Runner that can run wherever your clusters live.

Conversation: Helm, Operators, Service Catalog, Oh My! Running Services on Kubernetes
There are a variety of tools available that make it easier to offer and manage third party services (open source and commercial) on Kubernetes. In this conversation we will provide an overview of common service patterns for certain use cases, and open up to a deeper conversation including demos!

Kubernetes runs more than custom applications. Each day there are more third party services being offered with Kubernetes-native deployment options. With tools like Helm, Operator Framework, and Service Catalog available; it can be overwhelming to to differentiate between these options and understand what is the right tool(s) for the job at hand.

In this conversation, we will take a practical approach to compare and contrast different tools and patterns for creating, managing, and consuming 3rd party services on Kubernetes. In the morning 20 minute session, we will identify common service deployment patterns including platform add-ons, shared-instance deployments, dedicated instance deployments, and on-demand services running outside the cluster.

Then in the afternoon we will continue the conversation and discuss the tools that benefit these patterns, considering the needs of both Platform Operators (visibility, security) and Developers (choice and flexibility, ease-of use). Demos included!
