Building a private CI/CD pipeline with Java and Docker in the Cloud

A private Java (Maven or Gradle) repository as a service can be setup in the cloud. A private Docker registry as a service can be easily setup in the cloud. But what if you want to build a holistic CI/CD pipeline, and on the cloud of YOUR choice?

In this talk Baruch will take you through steps of setting up a universal artifact repository, which can serve for both Java and Docker. You’ll learn how to build a CI/CD pipeline with traceable metadata from the Java source files all the way to Docker images. Amazon, Azure, and Google Cloud (do you have setup that works on these?) will be used as an example although the recipes shown would be applicable to other cloud as well.

DevOps @Scale (Greek Tragedy in 3 Acts)

As in a good Greek Tragedy, scaling devops to big teams has 3 stages and usually end badly. In this play (it’s more than a talk!) we’ll present you with Pentagon Inc, and their way to scaling devops from a team of 3 engineers to a team of 100 (spoiler – it’s painful!)

In this talk we will look at the resources, techniques and tools needed for managing DevOps at Scale and we will discuss the challenges that companies encounter when they hit it.

Java Puzzlers NG S02: Down the Rabbit Hole

Moar puzzlers! The more we work with Java 8, the more we go into the rabbit hole. Did they add all those streams, lambdas, monads, Optionals and CompletableFutures only to confuse us? It surely looks so! And Java 9 that heads our way brings even more of what we like the most, more puzzlers, of course! In this season we as usual have a great batch of the best Java WTF, great jokes to present them and great prizes for the winners!
