Solving the Kubernetes Puzzle for Microservices

The agility of microservices appeals to many, but where to start can be a journey in itself. Meanwhile, microservices are often conflated with Kubernetes, the container orchestration platform. This can lead folks down the wrong path by putting the proverbial technology cart before the architectural horse.

When it comes down to it, not everything should be a microservice and not everything should run in Kubernetes. How do you decide when, where, and how to take advantage of this powerful application pattern and technology paradigm combination? Join Joe Nedumgottil, Principal at Solstice, Jay Lyman, Principal Analyst at 451 Research, and Nathaniel Schutta, Developer Advocate at VMware to learn:

- How to determine if an application should be a microservice
- What challenges can you expect with adopting microservices
- What are the advantages of microservices
- From monitoring to logging to service meshes, what do you need to consider for Day Two operations when adopting Kubernetes for microservices
- Why you should look beyond code quality to measure success, including business metrics, with microservices on Kubernetes

  • Reactive Spring Dec 8 2020 1:00 am UTC 90 mins
    Josh Long, Spring Developer Advocate, VMware
    Microservices and big data increasingly confront us with the limitations of traditional input/output. In traditional IO, work that is IO-bound dominates threads. This wouldn't be such a big deal if we could add more threads cheaply, but threads are expensive on the JVM, and most other platforms. Even if threads were cheap and infinitely scalable, we'd still be confronted with the faulty nature of networks. Things break, and they often do so in subtle but non-exceptional ways. Traditional approaches to integration bury the faulty nature of networks behind overly simplifying abstractions. We need something better.

    Spring Framework 5 is here! It introduces the Spring developer to a growing world of support for reactive programming across the Spring portfolio, starting with a new Netty-based web runtime, component model and module called Spring WebFlux, and then continuing to Spring Data Kay, Spring Security 5.0, Spring Boot 2.0 and Spring Cloud Finchley. Sure, it sounds like a lot, but don't worry! Join me, your guide, Spring developer advocate Josh Long, and we'll explore the wacky, wonderful world of Reactive Spring together.
  • Spring Boot Omakase - A Fast-Paced “Chef’s Choice” Dive into Fun & Useful Topics Nov 12 2020 1:00 am UTC 90 mins
    Mark Heckler, Spring Developer & Advocate, VMware
    Spring Boot has revolutionised the Java space and continues to do so, evolving constantly to increase developers’ superpowers and advance the state of production-grade software development. Presenting a dynamic technology before vastly different audiences often limits what can be proposed and presented. Let’s fix that!

    This session is an omakase, a “chef’s choice” of key points and latest/coolest capabilities for developers in the Spring Boot ecosystem. Known by French chefs as m’étonner (“Astonish me!”), the goal is to combine useful patterns and new possibilities in one fast-paced live-coding adventure from which everyone leaves with something tasty to chew on. Come for the apps, stay for dessert, leave satisfied and excited for the next “course” of production software!
  • Improve Prometheus reliability: Integrating PromQL w/ enterprise observability Oct 8 2020 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Hao Song, SW Engineer, Scott Rogers, Technical Marketing Manager, Gordana Neskovic, Sr. Product Marketing Manager, VMware
    Once your services outgrow simple configuration set up, developers, SREs, and Kubernetes operators need more time to build, maintain, and debug applications with Prometheus. At the same time, they take care of Prometheus scaling, upgrades, and storage across all phases of delivery cycles. You can get the best of both, Prometheus open source monitoring and high reliability, high resolution, and long-term retention of Tanzu Observability by Wavefront. In this webinar with live demos, join us to learn how to:

    - Flexibly expand your Prometheus monitoring and easily migrate to Tanzu Observability
    - Effortlessly create alerts and dashboards by integrating PromQL with Tanzu Observability
    - Get automated Kubernetes and applications observability at a massive scale
  • From First Principles to the One-Factor App Recorded: Sep 15 2020 57 mins
    Rachel Stephens, RedMonk, James Watters, VMware, Padmaja Vrudhula, VMware, & JT Perry, Premera Blue Cross
    Being an IT leader today can be overwhelming. You’re probably being bombarded with the latest technology fashions and paradigms, from microservices and containers to AI and low-code to reactive and serverless. With this backdrop, it can be easy to lose focus of what you need to do: deliver business value.

    When faced with a crowded technology landscape, many business leaders use “first principles” to make decisions that drive their business. A first principle is a basic assumption that cannot be distilled any further. We can apply this notion to technical paradigms, including the 12-factor app, a methodology for building modern, cloud native software.

    In this webinar, Rachel Stephens, industry analyst at RedMonk, will discuss how to apply first principles to software delivery and application modernization, and what we mean when we say the one-factor app. Join the conversation along with James Watters, VP of Strategy at VMware, Padmaja Vrudhula, Senior Director of Product at VMware, and JT Perry, Vice President Business Transformation at Premera Blue Cross as they discuss:

    - What first principles thinking is
    - Applying first principles to an automated software delivery model
    - Change in management philosophies
    - What we mean by the one-factor app
    - The minimum viable approach to containers
    - Moving from software inventory to software manifests
    - The convergence of heterogeneous systems administration approaches

  • Writing User Stories Worthy of a Saga Recorded: Aug 13 2020 47 mins
    Taj Moore, Product Manager, VMware Pivotal Labs
    Does your backlog feel like a box truck filled with marbles, and you just don’t know what to do with that mess? Do you feel like your user stories are pretty good but could do more for you? Do you wonder how to tell if your user stories are even worth building, let alone what it will take to do so?

    In this webinar, VMware Pivotal Labs Product Manager Taj Moore will cover how to write user stories with a simple, narrative approach that succinctly describes the ultimate “why” of each story. Backlogs are easier to work with when everyone understands the intended outcome, how to define “done,” and what risks are involved. This webinar is intended for anyone who writes or reads user stories to build software.
