About this event

GDG Bristol is excited to bring you 2 new awesome talks from our community members!

Automating Toil by Lying to Your Boss’s Slack Bot
James Laverack, Jetstack

At Jetstack we practice asynchronous stand-ups, posting what we’re doing in a Slack channel every morning for a custom Slack bot to parse and report on. I was attending a conference for a week, so I knew what I’d be doing the whole week in advance. However, our slack bot doesn’t let you pre-post reports. So, in true over-engineering style, I built my own Slack bot to automate posting of my pre-written stand-ups every day. It runs entirely on Google Cloud, and costs pennies to run.

It's Always (Hybrid Cloud) DNS
Stu Watts, ForgeRock

In a large hybrid cloud organisation, DNS is just as important as your networking. With a cross-vendor demo, this talk will delve into some of the features of Cloud DNS that you can use to stay sane, and get things... resolved.
