Invitation to IT Night 2014

Noc Informatyka 2014

Today we’ll have a fun during IT’s night 2014. It’ll take place here in Krk in a great place called “The Wonder Years”. Basically it’s nerd – event, where every one of us will be able to talk about things we can’t talk with our wives, bosses etc ;)

This event will be driven in Polish language; you’ll find agenda here: http://nocinformatyka.pl/program.html

I’ll give a talk there – I’ll show you guys how I live in the terminal most of my time; what kind of tools I use and why I don’t like to leave the term. I named this lecture “Ghost in the shell” – I suppose you know why ;)

So see you there today! Oh – my talk will take place at 1:50AM ;)

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 :)
