Breaking news! The day has come! The next DevOps Talk will take place on the 30th of August, and this time, what was expected for a long time is finally happening! After a long Covid break, it is time again to meet in person!

The cloud is all about elasticity and right-sizing. Microservice architectures are keen to be implemented in containers, and Kubernetes is arguably the most common orchestrator to run them. These containers, being (usually) stateless, are good candidates to use the cloud elasticity, so scaling them should be a well-known task.

EIS Group managed to invite Viktor Vedmich, from Amazon Web Services, will give us a presentation on “Karpenter: Efficient scaling of Kubernetes clusters”. He will be talking about different scaling approaches and focus on Karpenter – the new groupless cluster autoscaler, that can dramatically improve the efficiency and cost of running workloads on your cluster.

Then Rashmi Ankesh Joshi, who is a DevOps engineer from Accenture Baltics, will take the mic. She will be giving us the talk “Why Indians blame mothers?”. A short time ago, she says, “My friend gave birth to her second girl child and faced a lot of humiliation. This incident hit a chord in me. I had seen happy European families with even three daughters.”
Rashmi will share her experiences in Latvia compared to India. She will be telling about the low female sex ratio in India, its root causes, and how we all can contribute to helping change this situation a bit.

Our third speaker will be Gundega Dekena from Accenture Baltics. She will be presenting “The search for missing milliseconds: Kubernetes story”.
This is a perfect opportunity to gain some insights into Kubernetes. The story is about one team chasing the likely and unlikely suspects that steal performance in Kubernetes clusters. Where are they hiding? How can you find them? How to get rid of them?

When the presentation part is over, another fun part begins; the actual DevOps Talk! Do you have some doubts about implementing some specific technology and do you want to hear experiences from others? Or maybe is there a brain twister you have been searching for an answer to? We have an open discussion that you can come up with your topics, whether tech-related or not. Cannot think of any issues? Don’t worry! You can still join the discussion or stay just as a listener.
