Fail Fast
The presentation analyzes how “failing fast” via the use of Agile Methodology leads to better outcomes. Using an iterative process that involves stakeholder input and shared project understanding by the team and customer helps avoid roadblocks. This is particularly salient in the presence of high levels of uncertainty. The presentation underscores that even when solutions are assumed, they should still undergo a “fail fast” process to confirm their viability.

Starting with Microservices - Introduction to Azure Functions

Starting with an overview of Microservices we’ll review best practices and an overview of players in the field. Using Azure Functions with Node, we’ll walk through a couple of demos around setting up Functions and getting them working. We’ll briefly cover debugging, CI/CD, and integrations into other Azure services

What is a cooperative?

What is a cooperative? One description of a cooperative is "a jointly owned enterprise engaging in the production or distribution of goods or the supplying of services, operated by its members for their mutual benefit..”1 The economist Richard Wolff notes that “ cooperative ownership, cooperative purchasing, cooperative selling, and cooperative labor have all been labelled co-ops”2. Cooperatives are not necessarily worker owned, worker managed, or worker directed.

Rails-Elixir Pusher Clone Training

The integration of microservices, the Internet of Things, and context aware (e.g. location and environment) systems are forcing our development efforts to become distributed, fault-tolerant, scalable, soft real-time (predictable response and latency), and highly available. When approaching this difficult task, problem areas in legacy systems can often be integrated with high availability components instead of undergoing a complete rewrite.

An example of this is a legacy Rails application that needs to integrate a chat component. Rails is great for productivity, especially in small and mid-size applications. When adding a (soft) real-time messaging social component, the best practice is to use a third-party service such as Pusher to get started. This is because it is better to leverage a different architectural model, Publish/Subscribe, instead of the regular client/server polling model for performance. For more privacy, control, or custom additions, we can use Elixir/Erlang for this performance and availability without using a third party. In this training we will talk about the distributed, fault-tolerant, scalable, soft real-time, and highly available properties of Elixir/Erlang while creating a clone of the Pusher service.

In the first part of this training, we will set up a simple Rails frontend and backend, and then add a connection to the Pusher service. We should then have a completely functioning soft real time chat service.

In the second part of this training we will remove the Pusher service and replace it with a service that we will write in Elixir.

Introducing dwatch, the ultimate DTrace tool

With over 3.5 years of development time and over 16 rounds of refactoring and enhancement, my tool dwatch for DTrace has reached maturity and is quickly becoming the new hip tool for all your monitoring tasks. I would like to show you how to do everything from watching the system process scheduler in realtime to filtering out filesystem events. Here’s a short list of some of the things dwatch can do with a single easy-to-remember command syntax:

  • Watch processes entering system CPU scheduler
  • Print arguments being passed to functions
  • Easily watch multiple probes (e.g., functions) simultaneously
  • Globally watch all function traversal from every process/thread
  • Filter output by user or group, including the ability to use regex
  • Watch jails (FreeBSD native containers)
  • Use patterns or regular expressions to match on executable name(s)
  • Easily list/find probes of interest
  • Run statistics on probe availability for measuring observability options
  • Look for a particular path being created, removed, accessed, etc.
  • Watch interprocess communication signaling
  • Log network data events
  • Schedule timed samplings for events of interest
  • Filter on process id, including ability to use regex
  • Dump process trees for processes triggering a probe
  • Watch child processes
  • Show commands being executed in realtime
  • Write modules to centralize logic into easy-to-access profiles
  • Share modules with each other and help your community
  • More …

With dwatch, using DTrace has never been so fun and certainly easier than ever before.

Meet Jenkins, Your Automation Butler

For developers and system administrators, Jenkins provides a rich framework that can be used to automate a variety of tasks. In this talk, we’ll take a high-level look at the elements of Jenkins that make it a versatile, extensible application. In particular, we’ll discuss:

  • Installing Jenkins on a workstation or server
  • Creating and managing jobs
  • Using plugins to add functionality
  • Connecting Jenkins to servers running in AWS
  • Using Jenkins for Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery (CI/CD)

After participating in this workshop, attendees will have an idea of how Jenkins can be used to automate just about any repeatable task in their day-to-day work.
