IT night 2014 recap & slides

IT Night 2014

 First of all – this is a coolest event badge ever. Seriously – it’s awesomeness is about zoundsss! Thanks guys again for that!

So this night is over, I think we all had already enough sleep and now we’re able to do some recap. First of all – hard to say for me but this was my first IT night; somehow it happened that I couldn’t make it earlier (7 years to narrow it as this was 8th edition – lol). What was this night about? Everything that was somehow connected to IT topics; there were gaming consoles, Linux Millionaire – like trivia, throwing HDDs challenge, assembling PC challenge etc – all the things we did and we love or hate :) And of course – there were many talks given by awesome people (lol – including me) ;) But honestly – every one person who attended this night was really awesome – We could talk a lot with almost everyone and did not get bored :)

So – if you weren’t there – regret this all 365 following days and register to the next edition – it’s really a must – be event :) And for organizers – guys – you did a tremendous and great job – thank you for that!

My talk was about living and working in terminal. You can find this on Slideshare (embedded below). I also created GitHub project where I will develop those topics through the time. Wanna help? No prob – just ping me somehow ;)

Atmosphere Conference 2014 recap

Let's DevOPS the world!

Atmosphere conference was a blast! Those 2 days were full of talking, arguing and thinking. Venue was really great – whole event took place in the Praha Cinema in Warsaw and we had that feeling of #RedCarpet party ;)

The Atmosphere Conference just like Velocity is all about scalability and performance so DevOPS techniques and culture are all around the place – you can literally feel those in the air. Also the event is about people you meet there – and as the afterparty kept the Conference standards (great organization, full of interesting people) I can only say, that this is “must be” for all our polish DevOPS and others that are taking care of scaling and polishing their platforms performance.

Someone asked me to compare Velocity and Atmosphere. Well – the latter one is generally polish Conference where 95% of participants are from Poland; yet this year lectures were mainly in english. And about technological part – this year there were guys from Akamai, Facebook, E-Bay, Chef, Percona, Prezi, Microsoft, some polish local businesses and me – from Fedora Project. Looks like this conference is going global, yup? :)

Oh and that running part – I stayed in a hotel just near to Lazienki Park – one of the most beautiful city – parks in the Poland. So 6 am I was already up & running through that alleys – I really recommend this place to every of you that wants to keep in motion ;)

I’m really happy to had been part of the Atmosphere 2014. My lecture was about scaling and securing node.js apps. Check those out:

Invitation to AtmosphereConf

atmosphere-2014

I’ll give a talk at AtmosphereConf – this event is all about performance and scalability, the biggest one in Poland of this kind. It remembers me about VelocityConf that I attended couple of years ago.

I’ll be there as a part of Fedora Project. And here is the abstract of my talk:

Scaling and securing node.js apps

After few years of node.js in operation we know it’s very fast. We all heard stories about backend services running with the help of node.js and V8 core. But what we have learned about the security of such applications? What are the major threats here? I’ll explain how to create node.js apps in a secure and reliable way. Also – I’ll show how those could be scaled easily with (or without) help of Linux containers (Docker based) or jail – systems like Selinux Sandbox or libvirt sandbox.

There’s still possibility to register – and this event is really full of great people and talks – just can’t wait till I’m there :)
