  • Data at Work - Strategy, Part 2 Feb 18 2020 11:00 am UTC 22 mins
    Brendon Ellis, Caroline Carruthers and Kim Naess
    In part 2 of our podcast focusing on Data Strategy, our panel of experts discuss some key learnings from their experiences: If an organisation is to grow and evolve in line with the value in its data, then so too must its data strategy. It's vital to have the drive and belief to be brutal when necessary to recalibrate or even cancel projects when they aren't going to plan. Why it's important to keep strategy as high-level as possible to avoid overcomplication, and how in time, your data strategy can be used to build out a wider data story and enable the organisation to not just embrace change but leverage it. Please note - we recommend that you listen to part 1, before listening to this episode.
  • Data at Work - Strategy, Part 1 Feb 11 2020 10:00 am UTC 20 mins
    Brendon Ellis, Caroline Carruthers and Kim Naess
    In part 1 of our podcast focusing on Data Strategy, our panel of experts take on some of the major questions around data strategy: How to get started, the importance of aligning your data strategy with your corporate vision, and getting everyone on the same page. The dangers of focusing too much on the technology itself - our imaginations and how we use those tools are just as vital... And why "perfection is a disease". Once you have listened to this podcast, please listen to the extended discussion in part 2.

  • What are my microservices doing? Recorded: Nov 21 2019 19 mins
    Juraci Paixão Kröhling, Senior Software Engineer, Red Hat
    Microservices have become the standard for new architectures. However, the microservices architecture presents some new challenges. One of them is the so-called “Observability problem,” where it is hard to know which services exist, how they interrelate, and how important each one is.

    In this talk, we’ll have a live demo of an application that includes three Java microservices deployed both on bare metal and OpenShift. We’ll be able to compare how observable the application is in both scenarios based on tracing information extracted using OpenTracing and Jaeger, using three different scenarios: a "no instrumentation approach, "framework instrumentation" approach, and something in-between, where we use service mesh instrumentation via Istio.
  • Persistent data implications for apps and microservices Recorded: Nov 21 2019 22 mins
    Michael St-Jean, Principal Product Marketing Manager - Storage, Red Hat
    As organizations strive to transform their business, cloud-native application and microservices development has gained popularity and adoption.

    However, delivering on ever-shrinking timelines, and being more adaptive and innovative in developing these cloud-native apps requires a different approach and platform to design, develop, and deploy solutions.

    Containers have been gaining an overwhelming acceptance for such workloads due to the agility and flexibility they offer to dev/ops communities. Still, many operations teams have overlooked the important role of the underlying storage infrastructure prior to deploying the container-based environment. Stateful applications require persistent storage, and while there are several ways to provide persistent volumes to containers, delivering a cutting-edge dev/ops platform with an archaic, clumsy storage platform can seriously impede success.

    Today’s development teams need software-defined, container-based storage that is easy to use, highly available, flexible, and allows for faster development cycles for their stateful applications and services.
  • Implementing DevSecOps: Lessons learned Recorded: Nov 21 2019 28 mins
    William Henry & Lucy Kerner, Red Hat
    Security doesn't happen in one place in the infrastructure or application life cycle. Instead, security must be addressed continuously across the application pipeline, infrastructure pipeline, and the supply chain. And all of these areas need to be continuously monitored.

    In this session, we'll:
    • Discuss how developers, operators, and security teams can achieve DevSecOps through automation, standardization, everything-as-code, centralized management and visibility, and automated security compliance.

    • Examine how this process provides built-in security in the application and infrastructure pipelines and secures the supply chain, in addition to monitoring, logging, and proactive security and automated risk management.

    • Share DevSecOps lessons learned from various Red Hat Innovation Labs residencies, including best practices, techniques, and tools that can be used to improve security while reducing the workload of security professionals, developers, operators, and managers.

    • Discuss how participating in a Red Hat Innovation Labs residency can be like implementing “DevSecOps-in-a-box." In other words, we’ll learn how Red Hat Innovation Labs residencies can help build a starting point for DevSecOps and help customers successfully adopt DevSecOps best practices.

    • Detail how Red Hat Innovation Labs residencies helped customers accelerate their adoption of automating security, development, and operations, all simplified by using Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform and Red Hat Ansible Automation.

  • Scaling DevOps for hybrid cloud Recorded: Nov 21 2019 27 mins
    Steve Speicher, Senior Principal Product Manager, Red Hat
    When development (dev) and operations (ops) get together, good things happen for the business.

    Often associated with containers, microservices, and public clouds, DevOps is first and foremost a cultural transformation focused on collaboration facilitated by automation. DevOps methodologies help developers and IT operations teams break down silos by aligning on standard configurations, security profiles, SLAs, and self-service provisioning policies. Automation eliminates operational friction and frees developers to rapidly develop, test, and release applications. Similarly, because apps are built on standard platforms, IT operations are able to provision and scale resources on-demand, as needed—regardless of whether apps run on virtualized servers, private clouds, container platforms, or public clouds.

    In this session, geared toward developers and IT operations leaders, you'll learn how to simplify and automate DevOps security and operations at scale using Red Hat Ansible Automation with Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.
  • Quarkus—Container native Java Recorded: Nov 20 2019 30 mins
    Emmanuel Bernard, Consulting Software Engineer, Red Hat
    The traditional Java VM (HotSpot), with all its strength, comes at a disadvantage in a Kubernetes world as it requires fast startup time and low memory usage (for higher cluster density).

    Historically, Java has been optimized for throughput and high dynamism at the expense of boot time and memory usage (JIT warm-up and fixed high memory cost, java frameworks using lots of reflection and metadata gathering at startup time, etc). Enter Quarkus and GraalVM, an Ahead of Time close-world approach to immutable deployments that is rocking the Java ecosystem to its core.

    Come discover how they can enable Java applications to rival the startup time and density of Golang apps, while still allowing you to leverage the benefits of the entire Java ecosystem.
  • How to future-proof monolithic applications with modular design Recorded: Nov 20 2019 20 mins
    Eric Murphy, Architect, Application Practice, Red Hat & Aleš Nosek, Container Application Architect, Red Hat
    When building an MVP software application, you may immediately jump to a microservice architecture because it’s the new norm for building cloud-native applications. You may also be skeptical about starting off with a monolith MVP because of the stigmas of monoliths being a relic of the past.

    We will buck the microservice trend by showing how to evolve a monolith MVP in a highly controlled way using modular design principles. We will end with demonstrating a future-proof Quarkus + Vert.x application that is both a monolith and microservices while using the same code and modular design.
  • Cloud-native development at local speed Recorded: Nov 20 2019 24 mins
    Jan Kleinert, Developer Advocate, Red Hat & Jorge Morales, Principal Product Marketing Manager, Red Hat
    The popularity of cloud-native applications, along with the pressure to build faster, has led to sweeping changes in the software engineering field—and to the rise of DevOps practices.

    However, deploying applications to the cloud has brought a host of concerns that slow down developers. This problem is highlighted during the write-deploy-test phase of the dev cycle, also known as the inner loop, when applications are deployed in an environment similar to production to test them in real-world conditions. Converting applications to a set of linked services, packaging them into containers, or instructing the target cluster to deploy the application (and its dependencies) are important considerations. Moreover, Kubernetes, the de facto orchestrator on which cloud applications run, brings its own concepts that need to be understood, while not being essential to the core functionality of applications.

    This need increases the development effort just to get an app up and running, not to mention the slowness of the process itself, as containers are built and then deployed.

    What can be done to improve the day-to-day experience of developers targeting Kubernetes clusters?
    What can make this inner loop faster, and bring the focus back on code?

    In this session, we'll look at the friction points that slow development early in a project, and then we'll see where things can be improved.
