Abstract:

Developers don't get paid to write code. We deliver working software in production. How does your team turn source code into running software? And how do you make sure it stays working? If it's like my experiences, the process is too intricate for words. Instead, let's code it. How quickly can we get from an idea to deployment? I can spin up a project, change a bit of code, then track that through tests, code review, and into production: give me ten minutes and a few button clicks. You'll say, but my deployment process is unique. That's OK: we're developers, and we can code this. Build complete? How about a nice button for deployment. Oh wait it needs review? Enforce policies in code, not through training. Build failed? Here's a DM in Slack that includes the error from the log. Forgot to format your code? Oh look I did that. It's like adding a team member who looooves to update issue status and check on the status of that PR for you. Let's scale up ourselves: with our software development machine, a team can take care of more software and still build new things. Have a new organizational best practice? Put that in code and roll it out to every existing repository in minutes. Atomist expands the range of development automation past what we have considered. Come to this session, and be the developer who makes a 10x team.

Tuesday, June 19, 2018 at 5:30:00 PM Alight Analytics 1100 Main St., Suite 1700, Kansas City, mo

In the course of #opslife, we run into production incidents. How do we best manage them to avoid 3am misery? Matt Stratton of PagerDuty joins us to talk about just that.

"Is there any strong objection?" - How to have a (relatively) stress free time during an outage.

Major outages, incident calls, war rooms, whatever you want to label them, can be stressful and frustrating experiences. However, we aren't the only industry to have run into these problems. What can we learn from others on how to have a relatively stress free experience? How can we shorten the time that it takes to get back to a working state when things are broken?

This talk will provide some comparisons to responses in other industries, and then go through several patterns and processes any team or company can use to have a quick, visible, and easy time responding to problems.

About the speaker:

Matt Stratton is a DevOps Evangelist at PagerDuty, where he helps dev and ops teams advance the practice of their craft and become more operationally mature. He collaborates with PagerDuty customers and industry thought leaders in the broader devops community, and his license plate actually says "DevOps".

Matt has over 20 years experience in IT operations, ranging from large financial institutions such as JPMorganChase and internet firms, including Apartments.com. He has given presentations at ITSM focused events, ChefConf, DevOpsDays, Interop, PINK, and various local groups within the Chicagoland area. He is the founder and co-host of the popular Arrested DevOps (https://www.arresteddevops.com) podcast. He lives in the Chicagoland area with his wife Andrea, their cat Fancy, and his three kids, Henry, Joey, and Sophia. He also has an unhealthy obsession with Doctor Who, Firefly, and Game of Thrones. And whiskey.

Monday, June 18, 2018 at 6:00:00 PM Plexpod Crossroads 1712 Main St, Kansas City, mo

Once a month, on 3rd Mondays, our Hack Nights now also feature a "Learn Night" educational component. We regularly encounter community members who have info that is relevant to the Brigade--ongoing projects, vexing problems, or tutorials for new skill development.

This Learn Night:
The Center for Neighborhoods is a UMKC resource center that works to build the capacity of Kansas City neighborhoods.

Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/cfn.umkc/
Twitter: https://twitter.com/cfnatumkc

Our Learn Nights will be on the mezzanine level of Plexpod Crossroads, so project teams can hack away uninterrupted, but we hope you'll find some topics of interest. These talks are not specifically directed at a technical audience, so they're a great way for non-coders to get involved with Code for KC.

Presentations and Q&A will run from 6:30 to 7:30 pm. Hack Night starts at 6, so you'll have some time to mingle with the Brigade and grab some snacks.

Already an expert?
Participate in Hack Night. On the lower level, we're still running our weekly Hack Night, where people interested in helping can joining us to work on our various civic hacking projects to create a better Kansas City. Bring projects, ideas, designs, laptops, data, or friends.

Location: Plexpod Crossroads (formerly Think Big CoWorking).
Entrance in the alley on the West side of the building.

Topological data analysis (TDA) is a branch of mathematics that has emerged as a tool for data scientists to use in the past few years that aims to find the "shape of data". This talk will introduce a tool from TDA called persistent homology. We will go through how homology is defined, how to bring homology into the world of data, and review some applications of homology to time series analysis.

Eric Bunch is a Data Scientist at C2FO. He earned a Ph.D. Mathematics from KState and, well, loves TDA!

In the course of #opslife, we run into production incidents. How do we best manage them to avoid 3am misery? Matt Stratton of PagerDuty joins us to talk about just that.

"Is there any strong objection?" - How to have a (relatively) stress free time during an outage.

Major outages, incident calls, war rooms, whatever you want to label them, can be stressful and frustrating experiences. However, we aren't the only industry to have run into these problems. What can we learn from others on how to have a relatively stress free experience? How can we shorten the time that it takes to get back to a working state when things are broken?

This talk will provide some comparisons to responses in other industries, and then go through several patterns and processes any team or company can use to have a quick, visible, and easy time responding to problems.

About the speaker:

Matt Stratton is a DevOps Evangelist at PagerDuty, where he helps dev and ops teams advance the practice of their craft and become more operationally mature. He collaborates with PagerDuty customers and industry thought leaders in the broader devops community, and his license plate actually says "DevOps".

Matt has over 20 years experience in IT operations, ranging from large financial institutions such as JPMorganChase and internet firms, including Apartments.com. He has given presentations at ITSM focused events, ChefConf, DevOpsDays, Interop, PINK, and various local groups within the Chicagoland area. He is the founder and co-host of the popular Arrested DevOps (https://www.arresteddevops.com) podcast. He lives in the Chicagoland area with his wife Andrea, their cat Fancy, and his three kids, Henry, Joey, and Sophia. He also has an unhealthy obsession with Doctor Who, Firefly, and Game of Thrones. And whiskey.
