What is DDOG

We want to create a community for content related to DevOps and GitHub. We believe GitHub has a lot to offer and deserves a user group in the Netherlands. But we also love the different elements that enable DevOps. So we decided to combine those two into the community you are looking at.
Our goal is to have a platform where we can teach, learn and meet each other.


October 1st

We are proud to announce our these great speakers!

DevOps: Return of Security

Mustafa Toroman

In DevOps processes, security is often forgotten or neglected and increasingly more companies are recognizing this problem. But this doesn’t have to be a problem as long as you start implementing security in DevOps on time. Lot of features that DevOps processes use, like Infrastructure as a Code or Configuration as a Code, can be used to secure your security. Using and rotating secrets can help and if you really want to increase security you can add JEA and JIT for secure deployments. Join us in this feature-packed session where you will discover DevOps security nuggets, see real world examples and learn to become DevOps security expert!

Help, the machines are coming! How to make DevOps happen when you’re using AI

Willem Meints

You’re getting an email in the morning from a new colleague. It reads: “Hey, can you deploy this model for me?” You freak out, what is that? A model, where did it come from? And why do I get it in the mail. I thought we were doing CI/CD?!

Join us in this epic tale of the data scientist and the CI/CD pipeline. Learn how you can tame the AI beasts and bring them to production safe and fast.

In this session we’ll cover the following topics:

  • Fantastic AI beasts and where to find them: What a typical machine learning development process looks like
  • How to train your AI beast: using Azure Machine Learning Service with Azure DevOps
  • The data scientist and the philosopher’s stone: How to prevent Foldermort models from entering your production environment.
  • Voyage of the AI model: How to deploy machine learning models in the cloud from Azure DevOps.

Willem Meints is an AI/machine learning expert for Info Support and Microsoft AI MVP. He has worked for years on several machine learning algorithms and recently wrote a book about deep learning using CNTK.


Introducing the GitHub CLI, the interactive command line tool for people who love GUIs

Chrissy LeMaire

GitHub recently debuted GitHub CLI 1.0, a beautiful tool that’s reminiscent of command-line games of the 80’s. Join me as I highlight how it differs from git and GitHub Desktop. I’ll demonstrate how I use it to manage my own repos and just how easy it is to interact with pull requests, issues, branches, releases and more.

How-to: Auto reply to GitHub issues

Barbara Forbes

If your repository is growing, more issues might be coming up. Some automation can really help to keep the pressure down, manage expectations or simply let people know you are enjoying a holiday. In this talk, I will show you how you can make use of Azure Functions and the GitHub API to set up your own reply bot.

Infrastructure as Code: Scaling deployments across customers

Wesley Haakman

Infrastructure as Code is often used for (re)deploying environments. Having the code in place to deploy your solution and/or infrastructure is one part of the puzzle. But what if you are software company or a service provider and you are looking to scale this deployment across customers? Each customer will have its variables. There are many solutions out there that will help you package and deploy your solution, but they all have their quirks and limitations. That is not to say you shouldn’t use them but going the “Do it yourself” route provides you with much more flexibility and a better understanding of what’s really happening. And with that understanding you can still choose to invest in a third-party solution for your provisioning needs. During this session we will dive into a use case and leverage technologies such as (Azure) PowerShell, ARM Templates, Azure KeyVault and Azure Table Storage to achieve effortless deployments across customers.

Wesley Haakman - Lead Azure Architect at Intercept
Wesley is a Microsoft Azure MVP and is working as a Lead Azure Architect at Intercept. His day to day activities include designing, implementing and optimizing Azure solutions. When he’s not working on a project, he’s giving a workshop, training or test-driving new Azure features. As a big advocate of Infrastructure as Code, DevOps, Governance and Security you will probably hear him talking about any of these subjects at least a few times a day (or hour).
