From a Backend Developer to DevOps - THE FORCE AWAKENS

“Once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny.” —Yoda, The Empire Strikes Back.
Yoda is right.

Becoming a DevOps Engineer, after more than 5 years as a Backend Developer, has changed my professional life forever.

In this talk, I will explain how I was able to completely transform the way I solve engineering problems - From a narrow application perspective to a wide holistic system architecture approach. By the end of this talk you will know how you can do it too- whether you want to keep at it with your developer role, or switch to a DevOps role.

How a Unicorn Migrated From an In-House Solution to Helm

Creating your first Helm Chart is one thing, but migrating 400+ services - all relying on an existing solution - is a whole different story.
This is the point where "Helm 101" tutorials become irrelevant.

In this talk we will go through our unique Helm charts architecture, integrating Helm with existing systems and, finally, deployment to production.

By the end of this talk you will learn practical techniques to leverage Helm while taking into consideration existing systems and boosting dev velocity in the process.
