AWS CloudFormation - High-Intensity Training Advanced

Preview of our workshop at DevOpsDays Amsterdam 2019. At binx.io we do not believe in classic, classroom training for IT professional. We know that most IT professionals learn ‘on the job’ and it’s hard for them to spend 5 days in a classroom.

AWS CloudFormation provides a common language for you to describe and provision all the infrastructure resources in your cloud environment. CloudFormation allows you to use a simple text file to model and provision, in an automated and secure manner, all the resources needed for your applications across all regions and accounts. This file serves as a single source of truth for your cloud environment.

The training consists of a short but complete introduction into AWS CloudFormation technologies and practices, followed by a series of hands-on training exercises. The exercises simulate real-life scenarios and will teach best practices while doing it.

This workshop takes 2.5 hours in total and is intended for people already experienced with CloudFormation, and want to take it one step further.

If you want to attend this workshop, we’ll send you a prep guide. Send an email to martijn@binx.io, and two weeks prior to the DevOpsDays you’ll receive the instructions.

Examples of scenarios you will find in this workshop: - 5 min recap exercise of the 101 workshop - using secrets in your templates - test and validate your templates using cfn-lint - creating custom providers - creating custom macros - programmatically updating a template - using Sceptre to orchestrate multiple stacks - deploying Cloud Custodian

AWS CloudFormation - High-Intensity Training 101

Preview of our workshop at DevOpsDays Amsterdam 2019.

At binx.io we do not believe in classic, classroom training for IT professional. We know that most IT professionals learn ‘on the job’ and it’s hard for them to spend 5 days in a classroom.

AWS CloudFormation provides a common language for you to describe and provision all the infrastructure resources in your cloud environment. CloudFormation allows you to use a simple text file to model and provision, in an automated and secure manner, all the resources needed for your applications across all regions and accounts.

This workshop takes 2.5 hours in total and is intended if you have no or little experience with CloudFormation.

Examples of scenarios you will find in this workshop: - run your first EC2 Instances using CloudFormation - building more powerful templates using built-in helpers - run multiple resources and stacks including relations - optimize your template for re-use - optimize deployment for safety - troubleshoot common deployment problems - use the AWS Serverless Application Model (SAM)

After this session, you can take it one step further in the workshop: AWS CloudFormation - High-Intensity Training Advanced

Getting started with Alibaba Cloud

Host a website from an OSS bucket. Provision your first ECS instance. Load-balance multiple instances. Set up a database. Learn stuff.

You can create a trial account here: https://www.alibabacloud.com/campaign/free-trial. This should give you a month of free access to the core services but requires a credit card. Alternatively, you can have me set up a sub-account with administrator access. Ping me during the session to help you with that.

GCP - Learning for Google Associate Cloud Engineer / Google Professional Cloud Architect

For whose interested, an 8 hour self-study for Google Cloud Associate Engineer or Google Cloud Professional Architect

Google Cloud Platform Security - core components (rerun)

A comprehensive overview of the Google Cloud Platform Security features.

Things AWS doesn't want you to automate (and how to automate them)

Almost any AWS service can be fully controlled using the AWS API, for this we strongly recommend the use of boto3 (Python SDK). The problem is, that there exist some administrative tasks for which there is no public API, and there exist some AWS tasks that still require the AWS Account Root User. For example when creating a new account in an AWS Organization, there are some things that you are unable to do using the documented APIs. In this talk I’ll show how you can use Coto for these tasks, and a little background because programming with AWS SDKs is interesting.

Monitoring Golden Signals with Istio on GKE

When you run a system in production, you need to be aware of what is happening. Metrics, logs and traces can help with that. There is a very popular book about Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) that proposes to focus on the four golden signals: Latency, Traffic, Errors, Saturation. In this lab we will explore how we can monitor these signals out of the box with Istio on Google Kubernetes Engine.

AWS re:Invent Recap

During the week of AWS re:Invent there were over 100 announcements made. In this power hour, I’m on a mission to highlight as many as possible.

rerun Simple Architectures for Complex Systems, or how to create the most simple architecture for any system

What is the most important system quality? Is it Performance? Availability? Security? Correctness? No. The most important system quality is complexity. Complexity is king, as it governs all other system qualities. But how do we control system complexity? In this talk, I will present the golden rule which will help you to create the simplest design for any system. Active exercises included.

knative - a cloud agnostic framework for serverless applications

Google does it again! After k8s, it now delivered knative which allows you to build and deploy serverless applications without the heavy vendor lock-in of Lambda. In this workshop we want to explore how good it is.
