#DOXLON February 2018

Posted by : David Gildeh | DOXLON, DevOps Exchange (DOXLON), DevOps

We kicked off our second DevOps Exchange meetup of 2018 on February, with some excellent talks from ITV, Wealth Wizards and Improbable. Join our Slack Channel to connect the community in between our meetups. You can sign up here:


Also don't forget to help us complete our State of DevOps Monitoring Survey 2018 - we really need your help to make it successful and will be presenting the results back to the whole community later on!


We want to thank everyone who attended this month and look forward to seeing you at the next DOXLON! 

Tom Clark, Head of Common Platform @ ITV

For many, being part of a “high performing team" can help, but sadly there is no magic formula a team can apply to become “high performing”… Or is there? In this talk, Tom shares his theory that high performance is an emergent property of three factors: environment, people and leadership. Blend those correctly and high performance follows as a side-effect… Almost like magic.

How we have found life, working with Kubrnetes and Microservices over the past 18 months. Most of us (at Wealth-Wizards) here have spent the last 10 years working in a LAMP-ish environment with monolithic apps, configuration management, etc. How have we found the transition to micro services and orchestration and what has that meant for the usual problem like patch management, deployments, monitoring, etc.

Yifan Zhao, Tech Lead @ Improbable

This talk will take you through how we brought OpenTracing to all services that run in Improbable's infrastructure, tracing everything from grpc & http request to backend DB calls. We will also walk through how we used OpenTracing to gain a better understanding of our own system and to identify bottlenecks within it.
