About Rootconf:

Rootconf is HasGeek’s annual conference – and now a growing community – around DevOps, systems engineering, DevSecOps, security and cloud. The annual Rootconf conference takes place in May each year, with the exception of 2019 when the conference will be held in June.

Besides the annual conference, we also run meetups, one-off public lectures, debates and open houses on DevOps, systems engineering, distributed systems, legacy infrastructure, and topics related to Rootconf.

This is the place to submit proposals for your work, and get them peer reviewed by practitioners from the community.

Topics for submission:

We seek proposals – for short and long talks, as well as workshops and tutorials – on the following topics:

  1. Case studies of shift from batch processing to stream processing
  2. Real-life examples of service discovery
  3. Case studies on move from monolith to service-oriented architecture
  4. Micro-services
  5. Network security
  6. Monitoring, logging and alerting – running small-scale and large-scale systems
  7. Cloud architecture – implementations and lessons learned
  8. Optimizing infrastructure
  9. SRE
  10. Immutable infrastructure
  11. Aligning people and teams with infrastructure at scale
  12. Security for infrastructure

Mocking Production like Environment using Terraform, Packer and Jenkins

Submitted Apr 3, 2019

HashiCorp Terraform is a one of the most powerful infrastructure management tools available. We can perform the CRUD operations on infrastructure—all
with a single command.

Note:- But with great power comes great responsibility.

In this talk we will understand how we use below 3 tools

  • Terraform
  • Packer
  • Jenkins

to mock our production like infrastrucutre in no time and run all our beta, alpha versioned applications on infrastrucutre bootstrapped by Terraform
using Jenkins to test them out before the Production deployment.


  • Terraform
  • Nouns and Verbs
  • Safety and State management
  • Assume Role

  • Packer

  • Asset Account concept
  • Continous AMI building

  • Jenkins

  • Blue Ocean plugin to create pipeline for Packer AMI’s
  • Blue Ocean plugin to create pipeline for Terraform create
  • Blue Ocean plugin to create pipeline for Terraform destroy

When to stay with modular monoliths over microservices

Microservices architecture style has been a prominent talking points over the last few years. Microservices is by no means a silver bullet though, and the design thinking required to create a good microservices architecture is the same as that needed to create a well-structured monolith. This talk briefly covers characteristics of microservices, monoliths and modular monoliths. We will discuss th… more
