Test Software On Emulated Hardware In Containers... In The Cloud

Modernizing the traveler information systems of an international railway and transportation company, including the modernization and renewal of traveler facing devices at the train stations. For a variety of devices ranging from 20-year-old x86 PC104 based embedded systems up to modern 64bit multi-core systems, a Buildroot based Linux system, and a custom application stack is being developed.

In this talk, we will show how we use a fully automated CI pipeline to build our custom application components resulting in deployable Linux disk images. These images are then containerized and deployed on our Kubernetes cluster. Using Qemu in our containers allows us to simulate external hardware normally connected through serial interfaces and is the basis for automated tests.

Most organisations start their journey towards Continuous Delivery with their development teams, or often their web or mobile teams. I’ve seen many of these journeys fail because “ops” was not included in the picture. The organisation assumed DevOps didn’t need ops. So the team didn’t adapt, didn’t provide the right stacks, couldn’t support the tools. I’ve started a number of successful journeys with the ops teams doing Continuous Delivery of their infrastructure as code. They ...

How can we listen to when new upstream software has been tested to the extent that we feel comfortable integrating it into our software? How can we communicate about new artifacts available for others to integrate? How can we see what has been integrated where? How can we achieve traceability across pipelines run on different tooling infrastructure? How can we visualize our pipelines to follow changes from source code to customer deployment? We will describe these challenges and show how we ...

The Continuous Delivery Foundation was launched in 2019 as the new home to FOSS projects Jenkins, Jenkins, Spinnaker and Tekton. The foundation is also a community to advance adoption of CI/CD best practices and tools. This talk outlines the initiatives and ways to get involved so we can all work together to accelerate CI/CD adoption. Please note that this talk replaces one entitled "Infrastructure CICD with KubeVirt and Tekton" that was due to have been given by Tyler Auerbeck, who ...

Deployment strategies affect everyone, no matter whether we are focused only on a single aspect of the application lifecycle or we are in full control. The way we deploy affects the architecture, testing, monitoring, and many other aspects. And not only that, but we can say that architecture, testing, and monitoring affect the way we deploy. All those things are closely related and affect each other. We'll discuss different deployment strategies and answer a couple of questions. Is your ...

Progressive Delivery makes it easier to adopt Continuous Delivery, by deploying new versions to a subset of users and evaluating their correctness and performance before rolling them to the totality of the users, and rolled back if not matching some key metrics. Canary deployments is one of the techniques in Progressive Delivery, used in companies like Facebook to roll out new versions gradually. But good news! you don't need to be Facebook to take advantage of it. We will demo how to create a ...

Managing production machine learning systems at scale has uncovered new challenges that have required fundamentally different approaches to that of traditional software engineering and data science. In this talk, we'll provide key insights on MLOps, which often encompasses the concepts around monitoring, deployment, orchestration and continuous delivery for machine learning. We will be covering a hands on an example where we will be training, deploying and monitoring ML at scale. We'll be using ...
