  • how to setup a node.js service with express and typescript;

Open Banking & Event-driven Microservices using Apache Kafka – Auckland – 13 March 2019

What

Details
Event driven architecture in microservices and Open Banking driving APIs and microservices.

Agenda

Meet and greet

Talk 1: What Open Banking is driving with APIs and Microservices
Damian Harvey – Partner at Deloitte NZ https://www.linkedin.com/in/damianharvey

Damian presents on why Open Banking is fuelling the move towards APIs and Microservices in Banking, and what the future may look like in an Open Banking world.

Refreshments!
(Caviar and pickled fish canapés or pizza and beer … still deciding)

Talk 2: Event-driven Microservices using Apache Kafka
Andrew Schofield – Chief Architect, Event Streams at IBM
https://www.linkedin.com/in/andrewjschofield/

Microservices usually communicate synchronously, often using REST APIs. There is an alternative way using events. By adopting an event-based approach for intercommunication between microservices, the microservices applications are naturally responsive (event-driven). This approach enhances the loose coupling nature of microservices because it decouples producers and consumers.

Knative: Building serverless experiences on top of Kubernetes – Auckland – 28 March 2019

What

Presented by
Craig Box — Cloud Native Advocacy Lead at Google Cloud.

5:30 – Networking, drink and nibbles
6:00 – Presentations

You’re following DevOps or SRE best practices, perhaps even with containers and Kubernetes. You might even have implemented Istio! But are you exposing this system to your programmers? Wouldn’t they rather just write code, and have the system figure it out for them?

Knative is a platform for allowing just that. In this talk, Craig will tell you about the Knative platform and its three primary components — build, serving and events — and how you can offer serverless experiences to your users, but on top of all those servers you still love.

Auckland Kubernetes Meetup

A group for people interested in talking about and hacking on Kubernetes, Google’s solution for scheduling and orchestrating containers at scale.

We’re excited about microservices, containers, the distributions that run them and the solutions that deploy, manage, and extend them. Any skill level is welcome; we’re all new to Kubernetes and we want to create an open, welcoming environment for other Kubernauts.

Davin Ryan “The future of IT labour and should I go contracting?” – Wellington – 5 March 2019

What

Wellington.js is a meet up for those interested in all things JavaScript. Client side, server side, we love it all!

Over the last few years, I’ve been learning and asking questions about being employed in IT and how to get the most fulfillment from it. This has led me to seek out alternatives such as contracting, and associate or partner status in contrast to permanent employment. This presentation is a brief story about what I’ve learned, tips/tricks and my own journey from permanent to contracting to something else. I’m also going to talk about a movement underway which I don’t think we can ignore about the way we are engaged for our services of which Cloud and automation have been significant enablers. It’s about the transition of software as a commodity to software as a service and what it means to be a Software Efficiencer and whether this should be our next career move.
