Tuesday, 4th September in London

This meetup was organised by Cloud Native LDN in September 2018

Overview

Runtime Security for Cloud Native Platform

We will show how Falco taps Linux system calls to provide low level insight into application behavior, and how to write Falco rules to detect abnormal behavior. We’ll show how to collect and aggregate activity in a Cloud Native environment using and EFK stack (Elasticsearch, Fluentd, Kibana). Finally we'll show how Falco can trigger notifications to stop abnormal behavior, notify humans, and isolate the compromised application for forensics.

Where's the Value in Cloud Native?

Whether you're a developer or a manager we will give you a framework to decide which cloud native practices you should adopt today. We explain the practicalities of implementing three high value cloud native practices, both from an implementation perspective, and the perspective of someone having to sell them to the wider organisation.



Billie Thompson

Billie Thompson has been working with Cloud Native practices for the past 5 years across public and private sector organisations, bringing experience of using these techniques at multiple organisations.


Zenon Hannick

Zenon Hannick delivered the first Cloud Native project for Comic Relief and later as CTO drove the technology transformation across the wider organisation; he brings insight on how to sell this approach to senior management and ensure it's successful adoption throughout your organisation.


Switching Horses Midstream: The Challenges of Migrating 150+ Microservices to Kubernetes

At the end of 2016, we decided we wanted to benefit from the work other people were doing and switch over to Kubernetes. But it's not easy to do that kind of move when you have 150+ microservices and you need to keep the existing platform running in parallel while you do the migration.

I'm going to talk about this migration and the challenges we faced.



Sarah Wells

I've been a developer for 15 years, leading delivery teams across consultancy, financial services and media. Over the last few years I have developed a deep interest in operability, observability and devops, and at the beginning of 2018, this led to me taking over responsibility for Operations and Reliability at the Financial Times.
