Agenda:

7:00pm - Gary Bowers, Principal Cloud Architect @ Zencore
"Training LLM's on Google Kubernetes Engine"

Deploy LLM's to Google Cloud to create and train your own self hosted large language model using GKE and all the DevOps tools you know and love.

Bio: A Principal Cloud Architect with Zencore, 10 year Google Cloud user, ex-Googler, Application Modernisation specialist, Kubernetes and Service Mesh aficionado.

7:20pm - Dylan Ratcliffe, Founder & CEO @ Overmind
"Loom’s nightmare AWS outage and how it could have been prevented"

The year Loom had a nightmare outage that keeps me up at night because of how easily it could have happened to anyone. In this talk I'll cover what went wrong, and what all of us can put in place to prevent similar issues from happening to us.

Bio: Dylan is the Founder & CEO of Overmind, a company that automates pre-mortem checks to ensure your cloud changes don’t cause outages like Loom’s did. He has a background in DevOps and was a Professional Services engineer at Puppet before starting Overmind.

7:40pm - Short break

7:50pm - Ryan Germon-Eccleshall, DevOps Engineer Apprentice at KPMG
"Load Testing and Integrating it within Azure"

This talk will demonstrate the importance of Load Testing client facing applications to expose and diagnose performance issues. I will also dive into integrating the azure native load testing engines to measure metrics against your Azure hosted infrastructure.


We look forward to seeing many of you in the New Year!

Thanks,
DevOps Exchange Manchester
