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.

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

Orchestration with Kubernetes

Submitted Apr 23, 2019

I’ll talk about how we built and now run using docker containers. It covers the entire engineering effort undertaken and how and why we got here based on past learning and experiences.

It is my journey from a docker-compose PoC to kubernetes in production with the primary goal of improving developer/ops productivity.

I’ll go in-depth about how we created our deployment pipeline using jenkins and how we use helm for packaging kubernetes components. I’ll also touch on the important aspects of testing, deployment tooling and capacity planning that are needed to run kubernetes in production.
