DevOps HackDay at VMware featuring CloudFoundry
Thursday, September 8, 2011 from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM (PDT)
Spend a day hacking in the clouds with CloudFoundry. The focus of this hack is to get a few working applications up in the cloud the #devops way: a fully programmable infrastructure that extends from the OS through the application lifecycle.
We will be building a pipeline line that starts out in source control, flows through a build process, get packaged as Infrastructure as Code and ends up as a working application deployed to the CloudFoundry Open Source PaaS. The project will also include underlying instrumentation to collect data along the pipeline and also include an infrastructure for data storage and analysis.
The initial plan is implement this pipeline for a sample Java application. We'll be using Chef to automate the installation and configuration of the OS and middleware stack, then use CloudFoundry to automate application provisioning. Have a CloudFoundry ready app that you want to try out? Bring it along. Hopefully at the end of the day we will have a few Java, Ruby on Rails, and NodeJS applications up and running.
Some of the tools we'll be using:
- Source Control - GIT
- Build - Jenkins
- Artifacts - Nexus
- DNS - DynDNS
- Release - Rundeck
- Configuration - Chef
- Deployment - IaaS Cloud
- Data Collection: Zenoss
Whether you are coming to learn from the experts, have ideas you want to share, or just like the camaraderie of a good Hack Day -- Bring your laptop and come ready to participate.
DTO Solutions will lead this full day (9am-6pm) hands-on hackathon. We will have coffee/pastry in the morning, lunch, and a beer bash from 4-6pm with CloudFoundry/Layer 2 folks to discuss take-aways from the day.
