The 2018 Seattle GNU/Linux Conference is scheduled for November 9th and 10th at Seattle Central College. 9am-5:30pm both days.

SeaGL is a grassroots technical conference dedicated to spreading awareness and knowledge about the GNU/Linux community and free/libre/open-source software/hardware. Our goal for SeaGL is to produce an event which is as enjoyable and informative for those who spend their days maintaining hundreds of servers as it is for a student who has only just started exploring technology options. SeaGL's first year was 2013.

The cost of attendance is free.

Attendee Registration will not require the use of non-free software.

You may attend SeaGL without identifying yourself, and you are encouraged to do so to protect your privacy.

New Relic

Clark Boylan from the OpenStack Foundation will talk about a jenkins automation tool written in python called jenkins-job-builder or jjb. http://ci.openstack.org/jenkins-job-builder/

Bio: Currently an Infrastructure Engineer at the OpenStack Foundation, Clark is a core member of OpenStack's infrastructure team where he helps build and run OpenStack's developer tools. When not tending to the robot test army, Clark can often be found brewing beer and smoking brisket in his brother's back yard.

Abstract: Continuous integration is great, it provides up to the minute news onyour silly mistakes. Thankfully it is relatively easy to start runningtests continuously. Install a Jenkins server, configure some jobs, then watch the little red balls turn green. Unfortunately the "configure some jobs" step can get complicated when it becomes "configure a useful number jobs".

To fix this problem we have developed a tool called Jenkins Job Builder (JJB) which uses a simple, easy to read language built on yaml to configure jobs. It supports templating, macros, and best of all you can edit your jobs in a text editor. Since jobs are stored in human readable text files you can also track all of your jobs in your favorite version control system. I will run us through installation, configuration, and job building with JJB and have us all free of the Jenkins web UI for job configuration.

Casey Bisson from Joyent will present on what SmartOS can do with containers:

Title: Scaling Docker deployments from laptop to cloud

Abstract: Docker on a laptop is easy, but Docker in the cloud is hard. What makes that transition so hard, and what can we do about it? How does this challenge affect the hosting infrastructure and application design? Casey will share lessons learned so far and further questions uncovered in Joyent’s work to build support for Docker in public and private cloud environments (including the open source http://github.com/joyent/sdc and https://github.com/joyent/sdc-docker).

Bio: Casey Bisson has done time as a systems engineer, software engineer, writer, librarian, open source founder, information architect, and director of engineering for Gigaom prior to joining Joyent as the product manager leading development of SmartDataCenter for container-optimized on-premises and hybrid clouds. He may be color blind, but he compensates with a wardrobe of clashing patterns.

We have a speaker and a half for this meeting with a focus on windows.

Aaron Jensen: Aaron discovered programming over 14 years ago, and has never looked back. He specializes in making developer-focused tools and automating everything he can. He's spent most of his career working with Microsoft technologies, but did run his own OS X server for several years, so knows Perl, PHP, and Ruby on Rails exist. For almost 7 years he has worked for WebMD Health Services. He is currently obsessed with PowerShell and weeps whenever he sees a batch script or someone using cmd.exe. His open-source project Carbon, a PowerShell module for automating the configuration of Windows servers and workstations, has been downloaded over 2,000 times, probably by the same person. He loves chocolate, movies, video games, table-top games, TV, books, and using movie quotes in situations only he understands. He hates yard work, taking out the garbage, owning a house, and his therapist, but probably not in that order. He lives in Beaverton with his wife, two kids and the money he is saving for his children's future therapy bills. You can watch him remain silent on Twitter @splatteredbits.

Topic: Piloting DSC at WebMD Health Services

In Q2 2014, we piloted Desired State Configuration at WebMD Health Services. Come learn about our DSC authoring platform and patterns, security, how we use DSC to configure applications on developer computers, configuration deployment, and lessons learned."

Nick Chappel (who everyone should know at this point) may also be giving a brief talk on building windows flavored vagrant machines.

New Relic is continuing to host us and Volt is continuing to provide pizza. Gluten Free options will be available. Contact Spencer if you have any specific requests.

Docker PDX Meetup #11
Puppet

Please make sure to RSVP on the meetup page! Thanks.

This month we have two great talks by Carl Caum from Puppet Labs and Mike Coleman from Docker!

Agenda: 6:30 - Welcome, networking, food and drinks thanks to Intel and Sumo Logic 7:00 - Carl Caum: Adopting Docker in today's IT As IT teams plan to deploy Docker, they are often looking for the shortest path to get from where they are today to where they want to be with Docker. One challenge is getting the Docker runtime deployed on operating systems already approved by IT and part of existing deployment processes. Once the runtime is deployed, teams need to quickly start managing their container apps across the available cluster nodes. Finally, teams need a clear path to integrate Docker management technologies like Docker Universal Control Plane into existing change management and delivery processes.

This talk will cover:

Using configuration management tools to deploy the docker runtime, sync Docker images, and ensure containers are running where desired with the desired runtime configuration. Using configuration management practices of identification, control, status accounting, and verification/audit to manage Docker infrastructure over time Build Docker infrastructure change management processes leveraging infrastructure as code to enable continuous peer review, audit, and replication.

Carl Caum is a technical marketing manager at Puppet Labs with a background in systems administration, software development, and product management. He specializes in IT cultures with a focus on how tools can be leveraged to enforce cultural change in otherwise stagnant IT organizations to increase collaboration and job satisfaction. He tweets at @ccaum.

7:45 - Mike Coleman: Docker Announcement Docker has an announcement and Mike is going to review the newest features of the Docker platform. This will be updated with more information after the public release.

Mike Coleman is a Senior Technical Marketing Engineer at Docker. He tweets at @mikegcoleman.

Docker PDX Meetup #12
New Relic

This month we will have talks by Jérôme Petazzoni from Docker and Tom Trahan from Shippable!

Agenda:

6:30 - Welcome, networking, food and drinks

7:00 - Tom Trahan: Creating application delivery pipelines with Docker

Continuous Integration (CI) helps developers and ops teams ship more code faster. And with Docker, the pains of friction between these two groups is radically reduced by having predictable reusable environments. Tom will talk about how teams can think about this new world of application pipelines, show how CI works in Docker with Shippable, and shares some of our experiences in implementing Docker to accelerate application delivery.

Tom Trahan is the VP, Business Development of Shippable, a venture-backed startup providing hosted continuous delivery platform built on containers. Previously, Tom was Co-Founder and CEO of EnterPAS, a software startup providing records management and change control for FDA-regulated companies, a director at Microsoft focused on IT enterprise application development and operations, and a consultant at SAP. Tom spends his free time with his wife and two boys, coaching youth sports, traveling and playing guitar. You can find him on Twitter as @Tom_Trahan.

7:45 - Jérôme Petazzoni: Open source recipes to build, ship and run production apps with Docker

Getting started with Docker is relatively straightforward:install the Docker Engine, write Dockerfiles for your application components, and put those components together with a Compose file. At this point, your application can be quickly and reliably deployed on any Docker installation, anywhere, in minutes. Great!

How do we take this to production? How do we scale from the single-node setup to a multi-node, highly-available cluster?

Through a whirlwind of live demos, Jérôme will show how to provision a Swarm cluster with Docker Machine, setup overlay networks, host a local registry, deploy ELK to manage logs, implement load balancing, and finally use the resulting platform to build, ship, and run a demo application built around a microservices architecture.

Jérôme works at Docker, where he helps others to containerize all the things. He was part of the team that built, scaled, and operated the dotCloud PAAS, before it became Docker. When annoyed he threatens to replace things with a very small shell script. You can find him on twitter as @jpetazzo.

Beers with Engineers
10 Barrel

A monthly gathering for Portland area tech junkies. More specifically, those focused on data, emerging technology, and general IT topics. Industry vets, IT pros, nerds, geeks, tech philosoraptors, whatever.... Whether 5 or 50 this is an awesome opportunity to get together and talk shop, learn from peers, or just have some beers and a good time.

No management, No selling, No recruiting, No problems. Talking to people about your product(s) or career networking is fine but people "leeching" on the attendance isn't cool so don't do it. Industry folks with expense cards typically cover festivities but this isn't a "sponsored" event and we don't intend to turn BwE into "powerpoint parties". Venue will be dynamic alternating between locations and if group size demands we'll book a location to support.

If you're new to the group or haven't been out in a while we're a pretty dynamic crowd and always have a lot of fun.

CNPDX August: Clear Containers
Cloudability

Topic: Clear Containers

Speakers: Manohar Castelino and Samuel Ortiz, Intel

IMPORTANT: Due to limited venue capacity, you MUST RSVP via Meetup for this event (see below if you don't use Meetup).

Containers allow us to deploy, ship and run the same application everywhere in a fast and distributed fashion. They are a foundational technology for the cloud where they define a brave new virtualized world for users, developers and administrators. With containers usage rising, the cloud ecosystem is more and more fragmented. Cloud builders need to choose between legacy, secure, long term running virtual machines and new, fast and easy to deploy containers.

Clear Containers close that gap by providing hardware virtualized containers. With containers actually running within virtual machines, Clear Containers combine container flexibility with hardware isolation. Here we will present how we managed to drastically reduce virtual machine boot times and memory footprint in order to reach container customers expectations for server density and application sub 50 ms startup time. We will also show how this technology flawlessly integrates with the main container runtimes for Linux: Docker and Rkt.

Docker Portland, OR - Habitat - Automation that travels with your applications
New Relic

One of the dreams of development is to build a software package once, then be able to deploy it anywhere. Come to this talk to learn how to create software packages that run (almost) anywhere. You will see how the same application can be run on bare metal, on a VM, or in a container - with everything needed to automate that application already built into the package itself. This even works with a mixed infrastructure - metal for your static compute heavy loads, vms for your persistent data stores, and ephemeral short lived containers for your applications managed by Kubernetes or other container scheduling services.

Agenda:

6:00 - Welcome, networking, and food

6:30 - Nell Shamrell-Harrington - "Habitat" 

Come to this talk to learn how to build and deploy Habitat packages with the intelligence to self organize into topologies, no central orchestrator needed. Learn how the dream of platform agnostic and self organizing packages is fulfilled today and where it will evolve in the future.

Ahoy database folk! Time for another meetup and more container chit chat. Yeah yeah, you, like me, have heard that you shouldn’t run databases in containers. Well without throwing all caution to the wind, I’m hoping to show you guys some container workflows with Postgres that I’ve been using lately. We’ll talk a bit about why you haven’t been running databases in containers, then walk through some development work flows with Postgres, and lastly look at options for deploying and running persistent databases in containers.

Puppet

This event is listed on Meetup, please RSVP there if you can: https://www.meetup.com/Cloud-Native-PDX/events/249368520/

First, Chris Foster will share his tips for Security Docker on the Cheap. Better Docker security doesn't have to use expensive tools to achieve. Following a few security practices and using DE built-in features, along with some free, open source tools, can significantly raise the standard. We'll take a look at some things that can bring higher security without breaking the budget.

Next, Eric Ernst will demo KataContainers, a way to combine hardware virtualization with Kubernetes containers for more isolated, secure services without sacrificing startup times. In this talk he'll provide some background on the Kata Containers project and describe how Kata Containers works with CRI-O and Kubernetes. Then, he'll walk you through creating a K8S configuration which uses a mix of runc and Kata containers to secure workloads with varying levels of trust.

CNPDX May: Service Mesh and Service Broker
WeWork Pioneer Place

RSVP Required see RSVP instructions below!

May is all about SERVICES! Particularly, Service Meshes and the Open Service Broker.

First Talk: An introduction to Conduit, the Rust-based service mesh for Kubernetes

The creators of the CNCF-hosted Linkerd service mesh, Buoyant, recently introduced Conduit--a new, ultralight service mesh made explicitly for Kubernetes. In this talk, Buoyant engineer Carl Lerche will introduce you to Conduit, its design philosophy, how it’s used to add reliability, security, and visibility to Kubernetes applications, our motivations for writing the Conduit data plane in Rust, and how to get involved.

Second Talk: Stateful is Hard: Hooking Apps up to Managed DBs

Kubernetes lets us write crazy-powerful apps these days, and all three clouds will host it for you in some shape or form now. The result is that our apps are mostly portable, but there's more work to do in this space. Aaron Schlesinger of the Microsoft Azure Containers group explains.

Databases are hard to maintain if you run them in Kubernetes. Same with pub/sub systems, or any combination of stateful and data really. Sometimes we just want to hook our apps up to the cloud equivalents of these things, so we don't have to manage them. How do we do that in a portable way? Enter the Open Service Broker (OSB) API and Kubernetes Service Catalog.

Learn how to connect your apps to all your favorite cloud services without ever opening the portal or using the CLI. It's the same OSB API for all the clouds, and the same Kubernetes Service Catalog resources for any cluster. We're getting to a place where you can get the services you need without caring what cloud your app runs on.

RSVP Required for this venue. Either RSVP via Meetup.com (preferred), or send email to josh(at)berkus(dot)org with your full name that matches your ID. All RSVPs must be received by 4pm May 16th.

CNPDX June: Oauth All The Things
Mozilla

Please RSVP to this event via Meetup.com if you have an account there!

For June's meetup, we're talking about a technology/API that everyone designing microservices will need to deal with sooner or later: OAuth. Or speaker is Aaron Parecki of Okta.

"The OAuth 2.0 authorization framework has become the industry standard in providing secure access to web APIs. OAuth allows users to grant external applications access to their data, such as profile data, photos, and email, without compromising security. However, OAuth can be intimidating when first starting out. In this talk, Aaron Parecki will break down the various OAuth workflows and provide a simplified overview of the framework, highlighting a few typical use cases."

We will also have a brief update on what's coming in Kubernetes 1.11, by Josh Berkus of Red Hat.

This meetup is hosted and sponsored by Mozilla!
