Chris is fascinated by the tackling of tough questions in cloud-native development. He headed the high-performance computing group at Lloyds of London, played several integral roles in building a number of tech-setups at startups, and acted as a product manager at Google working on an internal developer platform used across the company. At Humanitec Chris is responsible for all things technical. He holds a degree in Information and Computer Engineering from the University of Cambridge and also studied at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Managing configs across multiple environments can be really challenging. This is especially true when certain configs should change according to different environment types like dev, staging and production, but others should not. In this workshop Chris will show you how to find and fix broken configs when things went wrong.
As much as we would like all environments to be the same: they're not. It's too expensive to spin up a new CloudSQL instance for every dev project, developers have kubectl on the dev cluster but not production and staging needs to be loaded with test data before every release. In this workshop, Humanitec’s CTO Chris Stephenson will show how you can run Postgres in-cluster in dev, pre-loaded with test data in staging and fully managed in production.
Cloud native is hard. 17% of teams have to operate multi-cloud, 60+% multi-account and 90+% multi-cluster. How do you effectively setup and manage application configurations across all clusters? In this workshop, Humanitec’s CTO Chris Stephenson will demo the approach of working against baseline YAML files to keep configs under control.
Developer self-service is a fundamental step every engineering team needs to take to reach true DevOps, true “you build it, you run it”. A key element to achieve self-service is to simplify as much as possible how application developers interact with the infrastructure team setup. In this workshop, Humanitec’s Chris Stephenson will show practical examples of how engineering orgs can optimize their deployment workflows on top of EKS, GKE and AKS.
The ability to spin up fully provisioned preview environments with every pull request can help your developers to rapidly test and iterate on new functionality. In this practical workshop we explore how to enable this for your developers on top of Kubernetes. The approach we are taking is reproducible on any existing CI/CD setup and any cloud.
In this webinar we will cover a big and often underestimated problem in software delivery: How to manage application configurations in a scalable way? We will talk about different approaches and show you how base-line templates can solve the problem.
A major bug urgently needs fixing in Production, but QA is impossible because Staging is ahead of Prod. In this webinar you will learn how to clone your Production environment to allow immediate testing before hot-fixing Production.
