Unigroup's February 2020 meeting will be on Design Patterns,
a technique for utilizing known-to-work reusable designs, a
concept applicable to both software development and systems
administration. Our meeting will explore three industry hot
topics: Design Patterns (concept), and Design Patterns for
MicroServices and Kubernetes (implementations), and makes
for a great followup to last month's meeting on Kubernetes.
Unigroup has a couple handfuls of speakers lined up for our
upcoming meetings, and we are working on locking down
topics/speakers to meeting dates (see the updated Upcoming
Meetings section below).
Unigroup's Meeting Calendar:
20-FEB-2020: Design Patterns (RedHat).

This will allow us to automate the registration process.
(Registration will also add you to our mailing list.)
Please avoid Emailed RSVPs.

still be able to show up and attend our meeting, however,
we cannot guarantee what building security will do if
you are "not on the list" (note: things tend to work out OK).
Introduction & Description of Talk
Kubernetes provides a number of distributed primitives which
developers, architects, tech leads and DevOps engineers can
leverage for realizing more resilient and consistent design
practices. This presentation offers an introduction to a set
of patterns to solve cloud native challenges using Kubernetes.
Attendees will learn:
- Why use Kubernetes design patterns.
- How are Kubernetes design patterns categorized.
- Examples of Kubernetes design patterns from each category
- Examples of Microservices patterns such as
CDC (Change Data Capture) and CQRS.
- How a service mesh can make realizing Kubernetes patterns
