April 2019 Meeting Information


April 2, 2019
Instan(t)a-neous Monitoring

We are happy to announce that Christoph Engelbert, senior developer advocate at Instana will be our special guest for this month's meeting.

Continuous Integration, Continuous Delivery, Continuous Monitoring!

These days, Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Delivery (CD) are commonly used mechanics to achieve fast turn-around times for high-demand applications. Microservices architectures and highly dynamic environments (based on Kubernetes, Docker, etc.), however, come with a whole different set of problems.

Systems, that not only appear and disappear dynamically (e.g. autoscaling), but most commonly tend to be written using multiple different programming languages, are hard to monitor from the point of view that matters: User Requests and User Experience. But the answer is simple; Continuous Monitoring (CM).

In this session, we'll build a polyglot microservices infrastructure. A way to monitor and trace multi-service requests will be demonstrated using Instana's automatic discovery system.

Meetings are held every second Tuesday of the month at the Dorothy Young Center for the Arts, Room 106, at Drew University starting promptly at 6:30pm. Meetings are open to the public, and visitors are encouraged to join ACGNJ.
