New Relic

Join us for the April meeting of PdxDevOps.


Colin Hom from CoreOS

Colin will showcase how CoreOS deploys production Kubernetes clusters on AWS and the open-source tooling around this process. Kube-aws built around the idea of "cluster artifacts" and is designed to be secure, auditable and reproducible. A simple templating system is leveraged to generate cluster configuration as a set of declarative configuration templates that can be version controlled, audited and re-deployed. Since the entirety of the provisioning is by AWS CloudFormation and cloud-init, there’s no need for external configuration management tools on your end. Batteries included!

pdxdevops is a Portland, Oregon user group that explores the glorious intersection of software development and systems operations, and shares practical advice on working effectively in an era of agile infrastructure, server automation and cloud computing. The group welcomes participants interested in any related products, technologies and methodologies. The group has been meeting regularly since August 2010 for presentations, demos and discussions applicable to all skill levels, from newbies and experts. Every month 15-35 people come together to share their knowledge, projects and enthusiasm for devops – join us!

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 (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

Please RSVP to this event via 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!

Two speakers will share their experiences in Kubernetes and OpenStack. Pizza, beverages, and raffle will round out the evening.

AGENDA 5:30 – 6:00 p.m. Check-in, Pizza, & Networking

6:00 – 6:30 p.m. Accelerating the Adoption of Hardware Accelerators in Kubernetes – Swati Sehgal of Intel

With containers becoming the desired deployment model for a wide range of workloads such as Big Data, IoT, storage, AI, ML, SDN and NFV solutions, container orchestration tools like Kubernetes, need to evolve to meet stringent networking and resource management requirements for optimum utilization of compute, network and storage. Such application generate large volume of data that needs to be securely transferred in and out of storage and over the network and inherently require compression and encryption which makes them computationally expensive. Offloading such operations to the hardware accelerators results in better CPU utilization and improved application performance.

6:30 – 7:00 p.m. Container Compliance Tooling -- Nisha Kumar of VMWare

Nisha introduces Tern, a utility for software package introspection in containers. This tool allows administrators to have the same level of confidence on what's in their containers as they currently do with VM inages, including compliance audits, bill of materials, and exploit detection. Nisha is the primary author of Tern.

7:00 – 7:15 p.m. Raffle and closing remarks

CNPDX June: Machine Learning and Example Kube Apps

Autodesk is hosting us for the first time for an application-centric meetup! Learn how to build Kubernetes projects. First we'll show you an end-to-end example Kubernetes application using Helm, and then we'll show you a Machine Learning/NLP project.

PLEASE RSVP on if you have an account for food ordering reasons.


Devstats: An example end-to-end Kubernetes application.

Presenter: Josh Berkus, Red Hat

You may know DevStats as a repository of contributor statistics for Kubernetes (, but you're about to find out that it is also a great demonstration case of migrating a complete application to orchestrated microservices. Our community has lacked solid, production-quality, end-to-end, all-open-source application examples, so we decided to make DevStats into one.


NLP for fun and profit. Story of end to end machine learning project on Kubernetes.

Presenters: Michał Jastrzębski, Hamel Husain, Github

Abstract: Machine learning makes waves again, we are being constantly amazed by new feats neural networks can achieve. Models, while important, are a small part of the whole machine learning system. The infrastructure it runs on, the dataset itself and data cleaning/preprocessing pipeline are often omitted in news articles, but they are critical components of any machine learning project. Infrastructure, in particular, is a hard problem and there are few good examples of running cloud-native machine learning. In GitHub, we are building a full platform for machine learning based on Kubernetes. In this talk we will walk through such end to end project, one anyone can replicate at home (code is open source and data is available), we will tackle hard natural language problem - automatically labeling GitHub issues as bug or feature. We will deep dive into our Kubernetes use case and walk through different components we have used for every step of ML project lifecycle - from data preprocessing to serving model for the application.

CNPDX October(2): SLOs and Kubernetes, OpenShift
Cambia Health Solutions

For a second meetup in October, we will have two guest speakers from Red Hat: Elana Hashman and Ryan Jarvinen

1: Elana Hashman will present "Operating within Normal Parameters: Monitoring Kubernetes"

After Kubernetes takes over your data centers, how can you be sure that it's operating within normal parameters? What does "normal" even mean? By formalizing your expected quality of service, you can measure and compare against known targets with open source tools like Prometheus. In this talk, we'll use Kubernetes as a case study for introducing service level objectives (SLOs) to guide monitoring efforts. Come learn the how and why of metric selection for monitoring Kubernetes quality of service, what gaps exist in the open source Kubernetes monitoring ecosystem, how to use Prometheus and its exporters to establish predictability and "normal" baselines, and how to use this telemetry to debug service degradations in a Kubernetes cluster.

2: Ryan Jarvinen will present "What is Openshift?"

Ryan will explain what the Openshift distribution adds to Kubernetes. He'll go over what went into designing Openshift 4.X, and then he'll demo some of the features recently added to 4.2.

Generously hosted by Cambia Health. Sponsored by Red Hat.

CNPDX June: Scaling Prometheus

For this month's virtual CNPDX session, Jürgen Etzlstorfer of the Keptn Project (and Dynatrace) will explain how to scale your Prometheus installation:

Prometheus is considered a foundational building block when running applications on Kubernetes and has become the de-facto open-source standard for visibility and monitoring in Kubernetes environments. Your first starting points when operating Prometheus are most probably configuring scraping to pull your metrics from your services, building dashboards on top of your data with Grafana, or defining alerts for important metrics breaching thresholds in your production environment. in your production environment.

As soon as you are comfortable with Prometheus as your weapon of choice, your next challenges will be scaling and managing Prometheus for your whole fleet of applications and environments. As the journey “From Zero to Prometheus Hero” is not trivial you will find obstacles on the way. In this session we are highlighting the most common challenges we have seen and provide guidance on how to overcome them. Finally, we are discussing a solution to get you there more quickly to build automated, future-proof observability with Prometheus showing Keptn as one possible implementation.
