The third Google Cloud Meetup took place on 3 March 2020 in our cafeteria. With 38 participants we were able to celebrate a record despite the corona virus. Many thanks to all participants and the presenters.
After pizza and beer sponsored by Google Cloud, we were allowed to follow two half-hour presentations on nines big screen.
In addition to the networking, our emphasis is on the talks: we want to share new, inspiring perspectives with our guests and convey knowledge in a compact form. Everyone should leave the meeting with the feeling that they have learned something new!
Approaches to Cloud Native Architectures
In the first talk, Nic Gibson and Daniel Leahy introduced us to the architecture of Google Cloud and used an example to show us the journey of a Swiss company into the Google Cloud.
Chaos engineering on Kubernetes
For the second talk by Dan Acristinii, we technically went a few levels deeper into the command line. Dan has developed a small mobile phone application with which he can shoot down VMs on his demo Kubernetes Cluster via API. During a live demo he made life difficult for his cluster under artificial load by randomly killing VMs. Using a watch-script, the audience could see how the cluster repaired itself. Chaos Engineering with a demo and symbolically supported by a picture of a sinking container ship!
On this occasion, we would like to once again thank our speakers for presenting!
