How to compose the configuration and secrets of microservices taking into account various variables without dying in the attempt.
How to compose the configuration and secrets of microservices taking into account various variables without dying in the attempt. In a micro service based architecture it's common to have to manage configurations and secrets based on different variables, such as the microservice, flavors of the microservice, the execution environment and data center, etc. Since it is an arduous task both in the time needed to add a new variable and to refactor existing ones I have created MHConfig. MHConfig is a microservice in charge of composing configurations and secrets according to different labels and notifying the clients who use it when a change has occurred, providing various features to facilitate this work as references to recurrent or global values, traceability of the clients using a configuration, access control lists to prevent obtain to other microservice configurations/secrets, etc. In this session I'm going to talk about how the tool works and how it can help solve common problems when managing configurations and secrets in a complex environment.

While we all probably think we're doing all the DevOps stuff the right way (and we do, don't we?), drift happens. Even as an experienced Terraform user, as your infrastructure team and codebase grows, it often becomes harder to track drift. I'll share here war stories from different teams, and show common pitfalls of popular commands we use when we want to know what's changed in our infrastructures.

“We are all YAML engineers now” as Bob Walker said in 2018 in Ghent. So we now need something to manage these millions of lines of YAML. There’s the “Kubernetes application management tools” list by Bryan Grant with over 120 tool aiming at config management for Kubernetes. This area is evolving fast, and as k8s users we need some guidance to make informed decisions on what to use. In this talk I’ll describe the problem I need to solve and take a look into what we can learn from the ...

Small businesses and non-profits may opt for Platform-as-a-Service solutions such as Heroku to avoid the operational burden of managing their own infrastructure. However, PaaS solutions quickly become cost-prohibitive for compute- or memory-intensive applications. In this talk, I’ll demo an open source infrastructure automation toolchain based on Ansible, Github Actions, Vagrant, Packer, Terraform, and Sentry. Once instrumented, this toolchain incurs a $0 recurring cost and can be safely and ...

You need to migrate some workloads from a private datacenter to public cloud. The result? The unavoidable hybrid environment. How do you observe traffic and mitigate risky changes to each system? In this talk, I’ll discuss how you can supercharge your cloud migrations with a combination of network automation for your datacenter and a service mesh across environments.

The "pet vs cattle" thing is getting pretty long in the tooth, but the one thing one keeps hearing is that the management layer somehow always remains a pet. While there is certainly some truth to that - you don't want to rebuild your management plane every day - wouldn't it be cool if you could?
