storing secrets in Google Cloud Platform using Berglas

GCP has donated Berglas as a utility to store and manage secrets in Google Cloud Platform. It uses GCS, KMS and IAM to provide an alternative to the AWS Parameter Store. In this workshop, we play with Berglas, get under the hood and understand how it works and decide how useful this is for us.

Building Instruqt tracks

Last XKE Adé from Instruqt explained how to create Instruqt tracks.
This session is meant for people to work on their own tracks.
By doing so collectively we can share knowledge. You can visit either slot or both slots.

Amazon Webservices: Services and Success Stories

Guy Kfir, Snr. Business Development Manager - Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence at Amazon Web Services (AWS) will provide an overview of the machine learning services on the AWS platform and will discuss a number of success stories.

The first hour will be a presentation by Guy Kfir, the following hour is optional and can be used to ask questions / continue the discussion.

Amazon has a long history in AI, from personalization and recommendation engines to robotics in fulfillment centers to Echo powered by Alexa, our drone initiative Prime Air, and our new retail experience Amazon. AWS customers use machine learning to improve the quality of healthcare, fight human trafficking, provide better customer service, and protect you from fraud.

Join us for a session where we cover the following:

Agenda - Why AI/ML on AWS, AWS AI/ML vision - Technology positioning - Target verticals, customer roles, discovery sessions - Customer references and use cases (Bulk of the session)

Play the private beta AWS Instruqt Tracks

We’re adding more and more AWS tracks in Instruqt. This is your opportunity to try out these brand new tracks in this private beta. Tracks are available on all levels: beginner, basic, advanced and expert. Most of them will not be published for free. We’ll use them at training and events, so stay tuned!

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

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.

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.
