With Juju, services can be deployed, connected, upgraded and re-used by defining them as charms. Encapsulating service intelligence like this helps to separate deep, service-specific knowledge from broader operations management skills.
Juju Charm School is a webinar presented by Cloud Developer Liaison Jorge Castro and devops expert Clint Byrum. Covering how to create charms and use them, it’s for developers and operations teams who want to make service deployment easier - especially in the cloud.
Attendees are encouraged to:
- Submit scripts and discuss how to turn them into charms
- Request peer review on any charms in development
- Ask questions about Juju, charms and service orchestration in general
This is a follow up to a prior Juju seminar, found here. [link to http://www.brighttalk.com/webcast/6793/39309] We strongly recommend that attendees watch the earlier video before this one.

For a complete cloud native application lifecycle Kubernetes needs some tools to "close the loop". The promise of the new way of doing things, is that you'll speed up your software delivery with microservices and devops teams. But how should you really do that?
Join this webinar to discover:
* Why you should try the Canonical Distribution of Kubernetes container solution and how to install it.
* How to deploy, troubleshoot and manage your application using Weave Cloud
* What is Prometheus monitoring, how it works, how to instrument your application using it and how you can get the most out of it.
* How to speed up your software development lifecycle - ship features faster, fix problems faster.
Developing a new device is hard. So is taking that device to production. However, we see numerous examples of companies devoting all of their time to development, and none to answering the important questions that are raised as one approaches production, such as:
* What is my factory process?
* How is the base OS updated so as to remain secure?
* How is my own software updated?
* How is the device recovered if an update goes wrong?
In this webinar we'll discuss:
* The challenges of commercialising robots
* Using ROS in your production code
* Build security in from the get go with snaps and Ubuntu Core
* Continuously deliver new features and updates without the cold sweat
has become commonplace to see some OpenStack users choose to remain on old unsupported versions of OpenStack, forgoing new features and security updates rather than face the disruption, stress and complexity of upgrading. At Canonical we call this a StuckStack, a cloud that cannot or will not be upgraded.
In this webinar we will show you how to get unstuck and onto an OpenStack path where upgrades between releases are guaranteed. Access to compelling new features in OpenStack becomes easy as systems can be upgraded with little or no downtime.
The Canonical Distribution of Kubernetes is a pure-upstream distribution that delivers you the latest version of Kubernetes with built-in community operational knowledge.
In this on-demand webinar we cover:
*How to set up your own Kubernetes cluster on Amazon Web Services
*Initial configuration, installation, and validation
*How to horizontally scale your cluster for future growth
*Other lifecycle tasks, such as upgrades, backups, logging, and monitoring
Kubernetes and containers are an exciting and evolving technology which can be daunting for teams and organisations to plan for.

Watch this webinar to learn how to get started on your Kubernetes strategy.
4 things you’ll learn
*What’s the state of the container landscape today?
*When should you consider containers as a delivery mechanism?
*Why and when should you leverage Kubernetes or another container coordinator?
*How can you quickly pilot and evaluate Kubernetes / containers?
Thibaut Rouffineau, Head of Marketing Devices & IoT, Canonical
The majority of IoT deployments across smart city, industrial or smart home are still relatively small scale and their benefits kept within the confines of the respective organisations. Slow deployments and costs are often to blame which prevent IT managers to go from proof of concepts to production. But for all to fully reap the benefits of IoT, large deployments scaling across cities and multiple sites will be required. In this session, Mike Bell will share some of the insights of deploying Ubuntu in production across IoT verticals: digital signage, smart city, industrial, retail, telecoms...

Kubernetes releases new major versions every three months, and multiple point releases of those major versions. With each new release comes new features, some of which might still be in preview mode, as well as bugfixes, improvements, and other changes that you’ll likely want.
For the uninitiated, an upgrade plan is one of the most challenging aspects of running a cluster, however our team has been focusing specifically on how to make this process as smooth, predictable, and transparent as possible.
While Deep Learning and AI are considered the fuel of IT growth for 2017, little has been done out of the cloud to help enterprises to adopt it. In this on-demand webinar, we discuss how such commoditization can be achieved using Kubernetes, nVidia GPUs, and the operation toolbox provided by Canonical.
Validation is an important step in the lifecycle of a Kubernetes cluster, it ensures that every major operation you complete on your cluster has completed successfully and left the cluster in a healthy state.
In this on-demand webinar we’ll cover:
*A recap on how to get a Kubernetes cluster up and running on a private / public cloud, or even bare metal
*Running an end-to-end test suite to ensure your cluster is up and healthy
*How to evaluate and measure test suite results
*Keeping your end-to-end test suite up to date as new tests are added

Most embedded devices today never see a software update once shipped from the factory. Even if a software update is available, it's still very cumbersome to apply. More often than not, the update process is riddled with artifacts relying entirely on the end consumer. Given the complexities of keeping/maintaining the device, it's no surprise that adding to it capabilities with new software is challenging.
In this session, we are going to introduce novel ways to manage a device life cycle. This new paradigm of software design enables transactional updates, application isolation and security as fundamental building blocks.
