GDG Cloud Düsseldorf Meetup #12


Let’s get together for the first edition of the GDG Cloud Meetup DUS Meetup in 2020!

We‘ll have three talks, covering two topics: IoT on the GCP and Continuous Integration.

Talk #1

Harald Fischer, CTO at Livello, will talk about connecting real things to your GCP service landscape.

Everyone’s all about the Internet of Things and the impact it has on society and economics. But how can you integrate a Thing in your professional infrastructure? The Google Cloud Platform (GCP) provides various tools to connect and communicate with Things in your professional, service based google application landscape.

Livello brings smart refrigerators to live by connecting them to cloud services, while providing intelligent unattended retail platforms. The applications and services are implemented, integrated and hosted in the GCP. The IoT Core is used to provision and manage secured communications with our Things that are refrigerators.

During this talk, we will go over the Google IoT Core, and the cases that Livello uses. Dynamic Provisioning, secured communication and configuration updates to name some of them. With Haralds talk you should be able to set up your IoT Core, connect your device to it and communicate with it, securely.

Talk #2

Randy Gupta will be talking about cloud native continuous delivery with Jenkins X.

Unlike what it’s name might imply, Jenkins X is an entirely separate product build on and for kubernetes implementing GitOps for running serverless CI/CD pipelines using tekton. Jenkins X provides you out of the box with preview and staging environments.

Randy will give an introduction on the concepts and will also speak about the work at SCARATEC with Jenkins X.

Randy is CEO of SCARATEC, Google Developer Expert for Cloud and member of the GDG Cloud Düsseldorf organizer team.

Talk #3

Robert Tingirică, engineering team lead at epilot, will present a talk on the caveats of CI/CD. After the hype cooled down and the tool for achieving “Continuous anything” you are faced with running the system, offering insights into how it operates through the observability tools available to you. You will have to make data driven decisions about where your time should be invested in the future and keeping a product focused mindset is imperious.

Do you want to find out what it means to manage external dependencies like secrets sharing? Are you interested in how information offload needs to take place for developers to have a seemless experience when using CI/CD? How does your branching model affect your release cycle? Join this talk in which Robert will dive into the subject while demostrating using gitlab CI.
