    GDG Hackathon : For Developers By Developers

    A hackathon for developers by developers! No business presentations! No patronising briefs! No pitch decks! Code and get up and running on the cloud in one day! Most hackathons run over several days. But then again, the GDG Hackathon is not most hackathons. We cut out all the nonsense. We get back to the basics. We use the Google Cloud Platform which allows us to be a whole lot more efficient. Developers can just develop once again. We ca...

    Cluster management at Google with Borg
    Cluster management is the set of tools and processes that Google uses to control the computing infrastructure in our data centers. It includes allocating resources to different applications on our fleet of computers, looking after software installations and hardware, monitoring, and many other things. I'll provide an overview of what we can do, and explain how the lessons we've learned have driven the design of Kubernetes, our new open-source cluster management system. We certainly don't have all the answers, but we do have some pretty impressive systems.

    Speaker: John Wilkes
    Principal Software Engineer, Technical Infrastructure, Google. John Wilkes has been at Google since 2008, where he is working on cluster management for Google's compute infrastructure; he was one of the architects of Omega. He is interested in far too many aspects of distributed systems, but a recurring theme has been technologies that allow systems to manage themselves. 

    Please register on Skillmatters website - https://goo.gl/1Mdi1s
    RSVP here will not guarantee a place and please arrive by 18:45 as the actual talk will start at 18:45.

    Interested in Infrastructure as a Code? Then make sure to come to our event next week!
    +Radek Simko will be talking about Terraform, which you can use for managing existing and popular service providers as well as custom in-house solutions.
    https://www.terraform.io/

    Building infrastructure with Terraform

    Building your infrastructure as one-off thing by clicking in the UI of your chosen cloud provider may be easy, but that isn't scalable nor fun in long-term nor in team. We are going to dive into better & maintainable ways of building the infrastructure using Terraform's DSL. Terraform is a tool for building, changing, and versioning infrastructure safely and efficiently. Terraform can manage existing and popular service providers as well as custo...

    We’ve all written an application from scratch before. You start with some code on your laptop and tell a server to run it. You make tweaks, update manually, and realize that you’ve committed yourself to a very imperative process. It’s manual. Inefficient. What’s worse, it’s completely unreproducible.
    So then you might turn to Docker, which solves the process-level reproducibility by packaging up a full execution environment. But once we get beyond a single machine, we need to coordinate the work across a cluster of machines -- trying to do it imperatively can quickly turn into a tangled mess! You want to declare to your cluster what you expect it to do, and have the cluster assign the resources to get it done, recover from failures, and scale easily. 

    Kubernetes is a recently open sourced cluster manager and scheduler that simplifies the complex tasks of deploying and managing your application. You simply declare the desired state, and Kubernetes does the work to keep it that way. In this talk, we’ll do a hands-on demonstration of how you can move from a single Docker container to many containers running across a cluster of machines by using Kubernetes.

    We had 3 talks from 4 speakers:

    * Building Realtime Apps With Firebase by Sara Robinson & Mike McDonald

    * Building responsive Web apps with Go, Polymer and Google Cloud Platform by +Mandy Waite

    One way to model a complex event driven system is as a series of functions or state machines with the data inputs and a data output. Recording and replaying data for such state machines can help testing these systems for reliable behaviour in terms of data output and timings. It can also make restarting and upgrading a running system easier.
     
    This talk was looking at how this approach is applied in high frequency trading systems. 

    Speaking was +Peter Lawrey , currently CEO of Higher Frequency Trading Ltd, previously working for Barclays, RBS, Sun and a few other companies.
