Agile software development to the cloud can be nowadays seen more as a rule than exception and that's also what this year's first Nebula Tech Thursday's topics were about. The event was held 2.3.2017 at Woolshed Bar & Kitchen alongside good food and beer.
The event consisted of talks about "Building a Full Devops Pipeline with Open Source Tools" by Oleg Mironov from Eficode and "Cloud Analytics - Providing Insight on Application Health and Performance" by Markus Vuorinen & Jarkko Stråhle from Nebula. The presentations were a bit high level and directed more to the business level people than developers but there was some new information how different tools were used in practice.
Overall it was nice event to hear how things can be done and to talk with people. Here's my short notes from the event.
Cloud Analytics - Providing Insight on Application Health and Performance
Markus Vuorinen & Jarkko Stråhle from Nebula talked about how to gather data to Elasticsearch, make it accessible and visualize it with Kibana and make actions based on that. The ELK-stack (Elasticsearch - Logstash - Kibana) is commonly used and the presentation showed nicely how to utilize it with cloud.
Building a Full Devops Pipeline with Open Source Tools
Oleg Mironov from Eficode showed the building blocks of how to build a Devops pipeline with Open Source Tools and demoed it. Nothing really special if you don't count Rancher and Cattle. Just put your code to Git, use Ansible, run Jenkins jobs, build docker images, use RobotFramework for testing, push artifacts to Artifactory and deploy with Rancher.
