Meetup: Maarten Dirkse & Tariq Ettaji – CI/CD @ bol.com & Xebia

On 16-01-2019
Category: Cloud, Events

On Wednesday the 30th of January we will focus on modern CI/CD practices. Maarten Dirkse, cloud advocate at bol.com, will update us on the migration of bol.com from their in-house data center to the cloud. After a short break, we will continue with the next part of the evening, in which Tariq Ettaji will show us how to run a CI/CD stack using CloudFormation completely free of charge!

From old to new – bol.com CI/CD in the cloud by Maarten Dirkse.

When bol.com started their move to the cloud they needed a new CI/CD stack to support cloud-native workflows. Maarten Dirkse will discuss why the old stack was not good enough and what tooling and processes did they adopted in the cloud. And since the bol.com cloud migration has been going on for a while now, he’ll share some of the lessons they’ve learned about CI/CD in the cloud along the way.

Quickly set up a (free!) containerized CI/CD stack with CloudFormation by Tariq Ettaji.

We all like infrastructure as code and we all like free stuff, so let’s combine the two. Using CloudFormation, you’re able to quickly set up a CI/CD stack on AWS with an ECS cluster, registry and Gitlab runner, fitting in the AWS Free tier. And of course, this can also be scaled up to larger deployments. I’ll be showing you how, and will also display how to set up a pipeline to deploy containerized applications on top of this stack.
