CharterMason is proud to be a Platinum Sponsor for the upcoming DevOps Talks Conference (#DOTC), running 11-12 May 2017 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC), in Melbourne Australia.

Any company on its DevOps journey is faced with a lot of technical and cultural challenges; we are going to discuss these transformation challenges, amongst many other interesting topics at DevOps Talks.

With excitement, I would like to introduce two speakers that will inspire and open new horizons for DevOps teams.

Alex Balk is DevOps Team Leader at OutBrain and will share his secret recipe for operational management and CI-CD for over 100 deployments per day on over 8K physical nodes in several locations.

Alex has over 15 years of experience in large scale computing, ranging from Intel’s compute grid, through HPC clusters, to Outbrain’s web-scale server farms. In the past few years, Alex has assembled and led several teams at Outbrain, charged with managing thousands of servers in an agile, complex environment.

Would you like to know about a team and technologies that run high-scale multi-cloud operations, which serve over 12 billion events per day?

Ariel Moskovich from AppsFlyer will share his knowledge and lessons that he learned while running a Kafka cluster in production with more than 8 billion messages per day. His presentation will cover:

  • Kafka usage at AppsFlyer
  • Testing The Cloud Cluster
  • Collecting Metrics And Alerting
  • Problems With The New Cloud Cluster
  • Splitting The Cluster, More Changes, And The Current Configuration

He is currently DevOps Lead at AppsFlyer, the world’s leading mobile attribution & marketing analytics platform.

In my next article, I will be introducing the next series of world class speakers lined up to address the audience at DOTC. Topics from these speakers include how to start a transformation and evolution from operations and legacy environments to the most modern and effective DevOps function? How to train and upskill engineers in good DevOps practices?
