Innovate Summit 2017 Highlight Reel

Innovate Summit is a one-day event and a great opportunity for software developers to meet and learn from SolarWinds engineers and others in the monitoring, management and development community.

The 2017 Summit was held on December 14, 2017 in Brno, Czech Republic. Many joined us for an evening of talks from experts and fellow devs on topics within the cloud native ecosystem, ranging from containers to serverless. The talks were followed by a happy hour to network and have fun.

Check out the highlight reel as well as videos and photos from the talks and event below.

Karlo Zatylny
Analytics Driven Development
Software is written with functionality and debugging in mind. Most often, programmers use logging as the primary method for debugging their application. Performance counters are another way to track application behavior and performance but can also be used to track problems and identify when and where to look in log files for issues. This talk will focus on the use of analytics in every day programming and the power it unleashes in helping programmers optimize their time in searching for resolutions.

Anton Naumovich
CoreHard: Running An External Engineering Community
Anton will speak about his experience in launching and running an engineering community — naming, branding, promoting, getting the audience, organizing meetups and conferences. The experience is based on CoreHard — Belarusian C++ community — and accompanying CoreHard conferences that Anton oversees.

Lee Calcote
Prometheus - Alert Manager & Storage Adapters
Join for a case study on how Prometheus, Alert Manager and remote storage works. We’ll talk about why we’re harnessing the power of Prometheus and integrating it as as an open-source monitoring solution with SolarWinds AppOptics as a monitoring service offering.

5:45 PM
Girish Ranganathan
Logging Docker with Papertrail
Learn how the Papertrail log driver for Docker enhances your logging experience with advanced functionality, such as tailing, contextual log analysis, colorized logs, advanced search, etc. Push and pull Docker logs from Papertrail. Buffer your logs so they aren't lost in the event of network disruption.

Trevor Rosen
Go-based IoT with Gobot
You probably know of the Go programming language from things like Docker and Kubernetes. But did you know it’s also great for IoT development? The Gobot framework (gobot.io) provides interfaces for dozens of platforms and protocols, implementing both high-level abstractions and low-level drivers. In this lightning talk, Gobot contributor Trevor Rosen will show you how easy it is to control electronics with this sophisticated and highly portable language.

+
6:45 PM
Alex Ouzounis
Logging Kubernetes with Fluentd & Papertrail
Fluentd is an open source data collector for unified logging layer. Fluentd allows you to unify data collection and consumption for a better use and understanding of data. Alex will demo show how to bring the power of Papertrail's agggregated logging to Kubernetes

+
6:55 PM
Karlo Zatylny
Visibility into Docker Swarm & Kubernetes Networks
Running Docker containers across multiple hosts? How's your network doing? Which driver are you using? Which should you be? Karlo will demo a free container monitoring tool that not only provides visibility into your multi-host workloads, it'll help you decide which network driver you to use.

+
7:05 PM
Fredrik Skogman
Managing Infrastructure As Code - Why You Should Too
Modern cloud architectures often involves multiple data-centers in different regions. Managing the infrastructure in a reliable way needs appropriate tooling that automates the process to avoid repetitive and error prone tasks. This talk goes through tooling used and best practices at SolarWinds Cloud's engineering organisations.

+
7:30 PM
Lee Calcote & Girish Ranganathan
The Serverless Landscape & the CNCF
The Serverless working group within the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) is one of many. In this talk, we’ll answer why the working group exists and how our efforts help the ecosystem. We'll also take a look at some of the current Serverless and FaaS projects and cover some of the common Serverless myths. Finally, we'll look ahead toward what we foresee as some of Serverless's biggest challenges and best-suited use cases.
