Overview of the event

Join us at Microservices, Containers & Serverless Day in Melbourne happening on 20th February, 2020.

A microservice is a software development technique—a variant of the service-oriented architecture architectural style that structures an application as a collection of loosely coupled services.

The Microservices, Containers & Serverless day is a forum for the discussion of all aspects of Microservices, Containers & Serverless : their design, programming, and operations. Speakers from industry report success stories, best practices, current challenges, and will participate to discussion panels on the adoption and evolution of Microservices, Containers & Serverless.

Microservices, Containers & Serverless Day successfully brings together many practitioners and researchers interested in the software paradigm of Microservices, Containers & Serverless.

Microservices, Containers & Serverless Day, Melbourne
X Topic Abstract

The most compelling reason for having a Severless architecture is cost. In most cases this means that you only pay for the time your app is running which sounds great. Why would you want to pay for something while it's not even running?
However, sounds like things are not that simple nowadays. With Serveless comes a lot of side costs like storage, execution time, and sometimes even bandwith consumed. In this talk we will break these down and show you how cost effective Serverless really is based on different numbers. It's going to be mind blowing, at least my mind was blown when I found out. So are you ready to be spoilt ?

Speaker Profile

Although it doesn’t look like it, Yaser is an almond croissant addict cleverly disguised as a successful web developer. Since it was relatively clear early on that it would be slightly more than difficult to make a living out of thin air and sitting in a café eating a croissant and drinking a cappuccino, he’s focused his energy on the web, which happily has proven itself to be a wonderful decision.

X Topic Abstract

"Serverless" is the new Buzzword in the town. Having worked on Azure stack with in serverless space , i would like to share my experiences with in Azure Serverless computing -serverless approach which offers developers, teams and organisations a level of abstraction that enables them to minimise the time and resources invested in infrastructure management.

Speaker Profile

I am a Senior Consultant at Dialog Information Technology. My experience includes working on both Legacy Microsoft Technologies to Latest cloud based technologies. I have varied experience across multiple enterprise projects across Banking , Insurance , government sectors , Health Care, CRM to name a few I keenly follow the latest technology available and put them in to practice for solving business problems. I frequently attend Hackathons ,conferences and other knowledge sharing events both to gain knowledge and share my experience among people.

X Topic Abstract

In the uncontrolled proliferation of application development using microservices architecture, it is critical to understand the operational aspects of running these microservices. This talk contains valuable insights into running microservices in containers using kubernetes as the runtime platform with all the enterprise grade controls that include security, observability, zero error deployments and other aspects like compliance reporting.
The audience of this session is expected to know basics of microservices, docker containers and kubernetes.

X Topic Abstract

The most organisation caught up in the hype and felt compelled to adopt the paradigm just because it's new, and everyone is talking about it. In my experience, no other architecture gained so much popularity and attention than Microservices architecture. Microservices is not something revolutionary architecture; instead, it is a natural evolution of software architecture. To be more precise, it's a refined service-oriented architecture with more emphasis on agility and scalability. More and more consultants are recommending towards the implementation of Microservice architecture, some knowingly few other unknowingly. But not every organisation do not require the type of web-scale agility and scalability requirements that push teams to adopt microservices. Before considering the Microservice architecture decision, it is very critical to understand the kind of problems addressed by Microservice architecture and also the new challenges introduced by Microservice architecture by solving those problems.

X Topic Abstract

The real-life story of how we deliver our first serverless solution that was done on time, but happens to be a complete failure and how we took control over the situation and turn it into success by introducing real-time monitoring, improved logging, and other tweaks.,

X Topic Abstract

Containers and container orchestrators have fundamentally changed the way we look at distributed systems. When in the past developers had to build these systems nearly from scratch, resulting in each architecture be sort of unique and not repeatable, we now have infrastructure and interface elements for designing and deploying services and application on distributed systems using reusable patterns for micro-service architectures and containerized components.
This session describes implementation design patterns for deployment of containerized applications on Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) that meet requirements for availability, reliability and scalability. Among the patterns presented, along with practical code samples for AKS, there is Replicated Load-Balanced Services, Sharded Services and the Scatter Gather pattern.

X Topic Abstract

Microservices aren’t new but the last few years have certainly seen a lot of successful implementations of the pattern. The promise of high scalability has attracted engineering teams to it like moths to a flame. There are plethora of benefits but they are accompanied by an ever growing set of technical and nontechnical pitfalls. As the shininess of microservices gradually decline, there are important lessons to learn from our scars. We will look at why microservices implementation fail, How to avoid the pitfalls and most importantly whether you need to ditch your trusty monolith after all.

X Topic Abstract

How to communicate between different micro-services? Does all micro-service needs code to communicate with each other using specific protocols? Who helps in Service Discovery? Do we implement the circuit breaking in all micro-services? How to blacklist one micro-service from calling the other? How to do basic monitoring and get metrics of different micro-services? Meet Service Mesh - a real saviour in the micro-services environment. Simple but powerful!

X Topic Abstract

DESCRIPTION - New analysts and engineers often have misconception that Testing has no broader scope and it is just confined to manual stuff. Most people think that testing is an easiest stream which can be achieved with minimum domain knowledge and almost no technical knowledge. However, both Manual and Automation testing involves a lots of effort combining your domain and technical knowledge. We will walk through examples that illustrates how to be creative with functional and regression testing, make your approach efficient to achieve high quality test results by automating your potential test scripts.

ABSTRACT - The three main attributes of Automation testing are reliability, efficiency and reusability. Most companies follow 2 weeks sprint which is a mature agile model. Manual testing gets really laborious in such fast paced environment. Agile has always been about achieving better outcomes faster; hence automation testing plays an important role for business to maximise the effectiveness of agile delivery. We’ll dive into some best practices I’ve extracted from working on multiple real- time test automation projects, finding best automation tools, defining the scope of automation vs manual efforts and most important the measure of success. With my experience, I have seen clients and projects achieving significant difference in manual efforts and reduced cost by implementing test automation. In recent years, test automation becomes a frequent topic of discussion, it’s really important for the testing community and companies to invest time and money to get this feature implemented to their current test practices.
