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:
- Case studies of shift from batch processing to stream processing
- Real-life examples of service discovery
- Case studies on move from monolith to service-oriented architecture
- Network security
- Monitoring, logging and alerting – running small-scale and large-scale systems
- Cloud architecture – implementations and lessons learned
- Optimizing infrastructure
- Immutable infrastructure
- Aligning people and teams with infrastructure at scale
- Security for infrastructure

The Pains and Gains of Containerization
While it may seem that moving to a containerized architecture be most logical thing to do, doing it right takes a lot of effort, investment on resources and patience before we can actually reap the benefits. About 2 and a half years ago we undertook an ambitious project in our Datacenter to pool all our resources together to optimise resource consumption, increase fault tolerance and scale faster. In this talk we are going to retrace our journey of setting up a container orchestration framework using Mesos and Marathon and migrating services from production infrastructure hosting almost a million customers to the new system with emphasis on challenges faced and learnings from the migration and the way forward.
- The problems of operating from a datacenter
- The light at the end of the tunnel (The objectives)
- Our Choice of Platform: Why Mesos and Marathon?
- The Grand Plan (Architecture of the new system)
- The much needed metrics
- The challenges and obstacles and the solutions to them
- The benefits we have reaped
- The learnings and the way forward
