Bridging the Gap Between Dev and Ops with XebiaLabs

It's no secret that uniting Development and Operations to deliver software isn’t easy. Developers want freedom to innovate. Operations teams want to mitigate risk. Together, Development and Operations are tasked with building and releasing high-quality software quickly, predictably, securely, and efficiently. An Enterprise DevOps approach calls for a framework to organize and control your software delivery pipeline. In this demo, XebiaLabs will present a modern approach to making it easier for organizations to:

• Connect all of the tools in your software delivery pipeline
• Provide a DevOps template on any architecture
• Optimize Continuous Delivery

We'll then hear Paychex's perspective in utilizing the XebiaLabs DevOps Platform, and open the conversation for best practices among the Rochester community.

A light dinner will be provided

In partnership with RIG- Rochester Infrastructure Group, a light dinner will be served

RocDev Spotlights Forbes

Did you know that Forbes (as in the magazine) has a satellite office in Rochester? Stop by the new MAGIC building on the RIT campus for an evening of food (free pizza!) and fun as we shine the RocDev Spotlight on our little team. You'll get a brief intro about Forbes partnership with RIT, a sneak peek at the CMS we're building here, and a Q&A with Forbes engineers and interns.

Modern Monitoring with Grafana and Loki

In this talk, we’ll hear from Ed Welch, a software engineer at Grafana Labs. He’ll cover the latest open source offering for aggregating and storing logs: Loki. Loki was built to store logs more affordably than existing offerings through design tradeoffs on log content indexing. Come learn how Loki works and see it in action with Grafana, demonstrating how you can pivot from alerts to log content with just a few clicks. We will also cover using Loki to generate metrics from your log data allowing you to instrument “black box” applications.

[RocMech] Keyboard Show ‘n’ Tell

Bring your Lysol and Purell because we’re having a keyboard meetup! We have an Ergodox with Cherry browns, UHK with Kailh blues, Race 3 with Cherry pinks, and more, but we want you to bring yours too! We’ll line them up on tables and label them so people know what they are.

This event is for all those who want to share their keyboard’s features and designs as well as people interested in trying out a “fancy” keyboard. Well also set up a key cap exchange, because I have more than I need.

There won’t be a talk in like usual for us so don’t worry about leaving early or showing up late.
