On day 1 of WinOps, this year, we are running a series of workshops hosted by our sponsors. These will be hands-on technical sessions and give attendees a real learning opportunity.
8:30 - 9:00am | Registration & Breakfast
12:30pm - 1:30pm | Lunch
Docker is a platform for running applications in lightweight units of compute called containers. You can run new and old apps in containers, and get increased portability, security and efficiency for your software. The platform supports the full development and deployment lifecycle - with Docker you can build, ship and run any app anywhere.
Docker has production support for containers on Windows Server 2016, and Windows containers don't need separate licencing. Migrating your apps to Docker is a great way to increase utilization in your datacenter, or to prepare for a move to the cloud. When your app is running in Docker, it's easy to break features out and run them in separate containers, so you can deploy updates to your app without a full regression test.
In this half-day workshop you'll use Docker EE on Windows Server 2016* and learn:
* - you don't need your own Windows Server machine, you'll be provided with a VM in the cloud. You just need a Remote Desktop client so you can connect.
New Relic delivers trusted and integrated data for every stage of your DevOps journey. From your infrastructure health to application changes and their impact on performance, using New Relic as part of your DevOps toolset enables increased organisational agility and speed that is measurable.
And that’s the key. DevOps practices don’t help if you aren’t measuring the impact to your systems and to your digital business. New Relic helps you make sure you’re doing DevOps the right way with detailed metrics and shared visibility for everyone.
Join our workshop and learn how New Relic enables today’s leading digital businesses access real-time and historical data across the entire stack—from infrastructure and application performance to customer experience and business metrics.
Come prepared for an interactive session, led by our team of expert instructors, who’ll highlight:
Our “DevOps From The Trenches” workshop is exactly that – first hand experiences from DevOps Practitioners on the frontline.
Our workshop is based on our experience of working with dozens of leading organisations around the globe in a variety of market sectors. We have devised this course to help people gain a better understanding of what DevOps is, what it looks like in action, the pitfalls and of course, how to kick-start your own DevOps revolution.
DevOps From The Trenches uses interactive workshops to teach delegates about real-life DevOps, from basics through to advanced topics. Devised and delivered by DevOps professionals, this course explores how to unlock the potential of DevOps and apply it successfully in your own organisation.
In this workshop you'll learn:
Learn how you can test for common user security issues and programmatically determine when you are failing to meet your regulatory requirements.
Participants will first learn how to run basic InSpec compliance tests against a windows server. InSpec tests will include:
InSpec DSL will be covered. Attendees will:
Get hands-on with Puppet and learn about the Puppet language, the Unicode handling and cross-platform capabilities, the superiority of PowerShell, SQL Server Release and IIS Release, and finally about the importance of having the full visibility of resource dependencies with Package Inspector.
In this half-day workshop you'll be shown, by Puppet engineers, how to:
For a better learning experience we recommend to run the following self-paced training courses. They're focused on a specific part of learning and have zero setup time (that gives you a VM in your web browser).
Self-paced training courses recommended:
Attendees need to bring their own laptop and comply with the requirements below:
When it comes to DevOps, you can't spell it properly without good software management (aka package management). Behind every great infrastructure management solution out there is a great package manager. Windows has long been left out of the conversation for DevOps due to a lacking solution for package management. Worse, with Windows, over 80% of the management and configuration deals with software installation management.
However over the past 6 years, Chocolatey has become the de facto software management solution for Windows. Hundreds of organizations have turned to Chocolatey due to its extreme flexibility, common sense, universal approach to software management, and use of non-proprietary, well-known technologies like PowerShell. Even certain groups at Microsoft use Chocolatey!
When shifting from traditional methods of software deployment to packaging, there is a bit of a learning curve. Learn the best approaches to package management. In this workshop you will get hands on experience with:
