Philly DevOps is a user group in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania for individuals who believe in bridging the gap between development and operations.
Ian Henry, Habitat’s Technical Community Advocate will be speaking on how Habitat helps to solve the pain of deploying and managing microservices and distributed systems.
As microservices and distributed systems become more common, automation concerns become exponentially more complex. What we really need for these types of systems to be safe and operable is for our software to behave autonomously in self-coordinated ways: Less like orchestration, more like choreography. In this talk we’ll demonstrate how this approach can make push-based application release automation a thing of the past. Self-coordinated approaches are the only ones that can lead to true, zero-downtime continuous deployment at scale, even for complicated topologies of interdependent microservices. We’ll see and talk about live examples of how the Habitat open-source project and its built-in service discovery with peer coordination for realtime configuration management can take the drama out of release management.
