Roll Your Own Operator with Ansible
Deploying and managing an application on Kubernetes can be as simple as writing some Ansible! An Operator is a controller service that actively manages the full lifecycle of an application on Kubernetes. A mature Operator can deploy, upgrade, backup, repair, scale, and reconfigure an application that it manages. The Operator SDK makes it easier than ever to make your own operator, simply by writing or re-using Ansible roles.

In this session you will learn:
How to define and deploy your application on Kubernetes using Ansible.
How to create a Kubernetes Operator for your application using Ansible.
How to use the Operator SDK to make an operator that defines some behaviors in Ansible and others in native Go code.

Automating On-Call Duties with Ansible Tower
I will talk about how we automated the on-call procedure for the operations team in IT at Red Hat.

In this session the attendee will learn how we implemented Ansible, Ansible Tower, Nagios, Puppet, and Jive to automate the on-call procedure for Red Hat IT and help the oncall team be able to focus on other work items outside of pages. I will go into detail on our infrastructure setup and disaster recovery setup we have for Ansible Tower in IT. Also, I will talk about how this got multiple teams in IT interested in using Ansible Tower/Ansible for automating daily tasks after seeing this implementation in action. Implementation with Nagios and Ansible Tower did not exist before this. We have open sourced the script we created so others may use the script and contribute to it.

Incubating Continuous Delivery
Getting teams towards Continuous Delivery is a complex transformation. Not only the process and tooling needs to change, but the teams' mindset needs to be completely rebuilt from scratch.
In this talk, let me share with you the journey towards achieving CD within my current company. I have never thought that it is going to be an easy task to tackle, but some of the things I have stumbled upon were totally unexpected, others much harder to chew than originally anticipated.
Even though we are still far away from our final destination, I believe there are already some lessons learned and aha moments worth sharing. Attending this session should help you to make your journey towards CD a bit more pleasant by being aware of the obvious as well as the not-so-obvious bullets to dodge.

Introduction to Operators for App Developers
Kubernetes scales and manages stateless applications quite easily. Stateful applications can require more work. Databases, caching systems, and file stores are harder to dynamically manage with data intact, and sometimes come with their own notion of clustering. Operators are Kubernetes agents that know how to deploy, scale, manage, backup, and even upgrade complex, stateful applications.

This tutorial will provide an update on the Operator pattern from Red hat, adopted by many community projects like Rook, Prometheus, and others, and supported by this spring’s release of the Operator Framework and SDK. A follow-along demonstration will show the installation and use of an Operator on a OpenShift Kubernetes cluster.

Challenges of product owner in a new agile team
Product Owners are key in any agile teams that are being formed. They are communication hubs between their teams and all of their teams' stakeholders. They are also important advisors of the team. It is these people that often take the first hit when something does not work ideally ... which happens a lot in new projects. In this session we will take a look into the life of product owners as their projects take off, what hits they take and how do they deal with them.

At the end of the session, the product owners in the audience will have some tips how to make their own lives easier. They will also know that they are not alone. The rest of the audience will have a better understanding of challenges the product owners face which will help them understand how to communicate more effectively.

How to Transform Dev and Test Silos into a Team
One of the foundations of lean/agile development is the elimination of waste, delay, and low customer satisfaction associated with siloed dev and test organizations. This talk describes how one software organization transformed siloed dev and test functions into unified teams focused on delivering value to customers. Attendees will learn:
-- why siloed teams are sub-optimal
-- how to plan for the transformation
-- the challenges to expect and how to overcome them
-- how the teams can evolve and grow
By presenting this information I hope to provide encouragement and a roadmap to teams facing the challenge of siloed dev and test teams, and call on them to start a transformation journey.
No limit on attendees.

Put Ansible and Kubernetes to Work
Have you longed for a way to make Kubernetes workload management easier? Ansible, the familiar IT automation tool, makes it easier than ever! Even if you are new to Ansible, it provides simple templating of resources that is easy to get started with, plus a broad base of powerful features for advanced management.

Once you’ve created Ansible content in the form of Roles, the new Operator SDK makes it simple to package them as a Kubernetes Operator that deploys and actively manages your application.

In this hands-on lab, you will:
Use Ansible to create, update, and remove resources in Kubernetes
Use Jinja templates to customize resources
Build an Ansible Role that deploys an application
Use the Operator-SDK to deploy your Role as an Operator

Declarative Monitoring pipelines with Prometheus
In the age of cloud computing, Monitoring is a Software Problem!

Traditionally, Infrastructure and Application Monitoring has been an 'Ops' task. In the modern world, this does not scale, as offerings grow to hundreds of microservices, each with their own dependencies.

This talk aims to walk through an approach that can be used for monitoring your application stack in a self-service declarative manner, with the monitoring configuration stored and delivered as code.

Presentation Flow:
- Challenges in monitoring applications the traditional way
- Core principles of modern application monitoring
- Dynamic Discovery and Monitoring as code
- Self-service monitoring and alerting
- How we are modernizing our stack with Prometheus

* All tools used will be open source :)

How many dashboards does your Grafana have?
Cloud or traditional infrastructure, microservices or monolith. What is a common need? The need for monitoring. With Prometheus, Grafana and bunch of exporters, we can extract absolutely stunning amount of metrics without even modifying our application. Grafana then makes it easy to display all the metrics in beautiful dashboards.

But is displaying everything the right approach? Do we really need dozens of dashboards, each covering specific service in detail? What about focusing on several metrics that are essential to our business and leaving the rest of the data to rot in the data basement?

Attendees should have intermediate knowledge of Prometheus, Grafana and monitoring in general, and will learn about pitfalls of monitoring production applications with these tools.
