Training and Learning Events from Kaleidocode
Mentoring and growing stronger teams using Agile techniques
Event recorded at Instruct, November, 20th 2019, Durban, at Kaleidocode's Training Facilities.
Why not try a new approach to mentoring and growing staff?
We manage the outcome of our software projects using Agile principles and techniques like time boxed cycles, shorter feedback cycles and small defined outcomes… so why don’t we apply these techniques to staff growth?
Staff grow at different rates, they have unique needs and differing circumstances, so why do we impose a one-size-fits-all approach to staff development? Furthermore, why do we subject our teams to a sterile and delayed feedback KPO / KPI approach in the tech industry, an industry that is growing and experiencing rapid change?
Chris advocates for taking a different road, read more to find out how.
Mining your log files with the ELK Stack
Event recorded at Instruct, 01 August 2018.
Log files hold a vault of useful information for operations as well as business.
Processing your log files could reveal a host of useful information:
Processing application and server log files used to be such a chore. Getting a unified view of all logs required wizard-like skills! But over the past few years simple and easy solutions have emerged. Best of all, they’re free. That’s right, they’re all open source!
Join Chris for a hands-on presentation, where we’ll pull some useful open source Docker containers and set to work making them weave some magic on our log files.
Chris covers some Docker Compose basics to get you started with a simple ELK stack (Elastic Search, Log Stash and Kibana), configure some endpoints and setup log shipping (for Linux and Windows) so that we can process log files.
He will have you processing logs, and then looking at ways to transform and embellish your log data to add IT operational, as well as business value. Using your transformed data, he also covers visualising the data using Kibana.
To close out he will have you considering alternative technologies such as Prometheus and Grafana, and discuss the pros and cons of the different technologies. Mining log files has never been so simple. Watch this session to see how easy it is to get started.
