Justin Reynolds: Intuition Engineering at Netflix with Vizceral
 
25:38
Read the full blog post here - http://www.heavybit.com/library/blog/sf-metrics-meetup-vizceral-traffic-intuition-rust-metrics-library/ Justin is a Senior Software Engineer for Traffic & Chaos at Netflix. Netflix runs on hundreds of interconnected microservices that, as a whole system, is too complex for any one person to completely understand. To help understand this complicated system they are developing Vizceral, a tool that helps distill the most useful bits of information and present it to the user in a way that they can ‘feel’ the state of the system without needing to understand all the moving parts. There is still a lot of work to be done to get more and more intuition about the system, but it has already proven vital internally and has been open sourced.

Cindy Sridharan: Testing Microservices: A Sane Approach Pre-Production & In Production
 
27:21
Read the full blog post here - https://www.heavybit.com/library/blog/launchdarkly-how-to-test-in-production/ In December 2017, Cindy wrote an article about testing microservices. She wrote it in response to an article that showcased a team’s incredibly complex testing infrastructure. The piece described how a team built something that helped their developers run a lot of tests very quickly. And while it helped tremendously, Cindy wondered why it had to be so complex. “The whole point of microservices is to enable teams to develop, deploy and scale independently. Yet when it comes to testing, we insist on testing *everything* together by spinning up *identical* environments, contradicting the mainspring of why we do microservices.” Check out her talk to see how she recommends testing microservices—how to think about testing, what to consider when setting up tests, and other best practices.

11:38
Read the full blog post here - https://www.heavybit.com/library/blog/launchdarkly-how-to-test-in-production/ Josh started our Meetup with a short talk on deploying machine learning models into production. He's worked as the Director of Data Science at Cloudera, he wrote the java version of Google's AB testing framework, and he recently held the position of Director of Data Engineering at Slack. In his opinion the most important question is: "How often do you want to deploy this?" You should never deploy a machine learning model once. If the problem is not important enough to keep working on it and deploy new models, then its not important enough to pay the cost of putting it into production in the first place.

My name is Bear and my job at CircleCI is the operations side of the Site Reliability Engineering team. I’ve been using Python to develop applications and ops tools for many decades. When I joined CircleCI, I naturally started to use CircleCI in my Python projects. One of my goals is to make CircleCI a best-in-class tool for Python Continuous Integration. To do that I decided to create a simple web application and then apply the current best practices for testing and deploys to that project. This is the result of that research.

Ben Sigelman: OpenTracing and its Applications
 
30:39
Read the full blog post here - https://www.heavybit.com/library/blog/sf-metrics-meetup-opentracing-and-druid/ This talk describes why distributed tracing is important, why its instrumentation presents uncommon standardization problems, and the way that OpenTracing addresses these problems. It’s been 12 years since Google started using Dapper internally. Zipkin was open-sourced over 4 years ago. This stuff is not new! Yet if you operate a complex services architecture, deploying a distributed tracing system today requires person-years of engineer effort, monkey-patched communication packages, and countless inconsistencies across platforms. If distributed tracing is so valuable, why doesn’t everyone do it already? Because tracing instrumentation has been broken until now, which brings us to the OpenTracing project. OpenTracing is a new, open distributed tracing standard for applications and OSS packages. Ben describes how OpenTracing integrates with application code and OSS libraries, how it interoperates with Zipkin, Appdash, LightStep, and other tracing backends, and where the project is headed. We will end with a deep dive of some OpenTracing libraries and show a few demos. For more developer focused content, visit https://www.heavybit.com/library

Nathan Bronson: Improving RocksDB Write Scalability
 
20:05
Read the full blog post here - https://www.heavybit.com/library/blog/improving-rocksdbs-write-scalability-counting-things-at-smyte/ Nathan Bronson has been an engineer at Facebook for 5 years, most notably on the TAO cache. He received a PhD from Stanford for work on better programming models for single-machine concurrency. He's not a database expert, but the code he helped write ran a billion database queries while you were reading this bio. Currently he's working in Facebook's Boston office on a new interface to the social graph with stronger consistency primitives. RocksDB's architecture is highly concurrent for reads, but not for writes. When there are concurrent writers, their work is grouped together and applied by a single thread. This makes it easy to batch log writes, keeps the write path simple and reliable, and is sufficient for many workloads. Unfortunately, it also severely limits write scalability. In this talk Nathan will dig into a series of changes he made to rocksdb to tackle the scalability problem with minimal impact on the core write logic. These changes allow writing threads to join a write group without waiting for the main DB mutex, reduce the cost of waiting for write group leader, and allow many threads to simultaneously update the memtable's lock-free skip list. The end result is useful (not perfect) write scalability, getting a 3X improvement in peak insert rate with sync on commit disabled and 2X improvement with it enabled.

How to Turbocharge Your Career: From SDR to AE

Read the full blog post here - https://www.heavybit.com/library/blog/from-sdr-to-ae-how-to-turbocharge-your-career/ As an SDR you understand your value to the business but, for most SDRs, this is a step on the path to a closing role. Look for a company that sees SDRs as more than lead generators and invests in you as a person and in your career. Some companies, if they have been around long enough, will have a clear process for promotion in place. Pay attention to the timeline for promotion and see if that works for you. Other companies may be at an earlier stage with a less defined process. If this is the case, see if they have a history of promoting internally and if they do, ask questions around how you can prepare yourself to be moving in that direction.

Brian Leroux: Slack Bot Building with Cloud Functions
 
26:56
Read the full blog post here - https://www.heavybit.com/library/blog/navigating-the-serverless-ecosystem-and-slack-bot-building-with-cloud-functions/ Functions as a service is a recent conclusion of cloud computing. The iron age of compute racked physical servers. Early cloud compute evolved past physical servers with virtual machines. And most recently, in what appears to be an ever tightening cycle, containers have given rise to cloud functions. Each age taught new lessons for building software architectures and this most recent iteration changes the shape of the challenges we face. In this talk Brian LeRoux shares how his team creates and deploys their bot using AWS Lambda, API Gateway, SNS and DynamoDB. For more developer focused content, visit https://www.heavybit.com/library

Ben Sigelman: Turnkey Distributed Tracing: OpenTracing & Go
 
24:06
Read the full blog post here - https://www.heavybit.com/library/blog/gosf-problematic-dependencies-slack-bots-opentracing-go/ The final talk was on the distributed tracing standard, OpenTracing. Ben Sigelman created Dapper at Google and is now a proponent of OpenTracing, a set of vendor-neutral APIs for context propagation. The talk discussed the reason why distributed tracing is not ubiquitous despite being the only solution for visibility into highly concurrent, microservices based architectures. It’s because there is no standardization for instrumentation. He discussed further how Go was such a great language for OpenTracing because concurrency was the rule, not the exception. That means you need to care about visibility into complex request journeys very quickly. With Go, it is essential to have a good story on tracing to get a decent signal to noise ratio at the process level. Culturally as well, people tend to develop Go applications in the context of decoupled architectures. The OpenTracing-Go demo displayed real-time traces using Appdash, Sourcegraph’s open source tracer. For more developer focused content, visit https://www.heavybit.com/library
