Dutch DevOps & GitHub Community

10th DDOG on May 17th


Our Tenth edition of The Dutch DevOps & GitHub Community will take place on May 17th


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.

Tuesday May 17th

We are proud to announce our great speakers!

Learning to ❤️ HATEOAS

Sander ten Brinke

Have you noticed that apps often contain code that already exists on the server? For example: Checking if an item can be deleted. But the server also checks this during deletion! If you change this logic on the server, you need to update all your apps, too! And that is just one of the downsides..

Isn’t there a better way? During this presentation, you will learn how HATEOAS can help!

Sander ten Brinke - Lead Software Engineer @ Arcady
Sander ten Brinke is a Lead Software Engineer at Arcady, a Dutch IT consultancy firm based in Zwolle. He loves working with .NET, Azure, CI/CD and a whole lot more. He always stays up to date with all new technology and loves sharing his knowledge with everyone!

Infrastructure as Code: Better safe than sorry

Barbara Forbes

With infrastructure as code, you can deploy resources to Azure with just a few lines of code. It’s easy to start, just click “export template”, copy PowerShell code from the documentation or use the VSCode extensions for ARM templates or Bicep. What could possible go wrong?

With great power comes great responsibility. How do we make sure the code, the Azure resources and the team running it are all safe? In this talk, we will look at different ways to test Bicep and ARM templates before they are deployed to the real world. After that, let’s not forget about the team processes to protect the environment and ourselves. In the end you will have some practical guidance to ensure your code is secure, risks are mitigated and you can work together to manage your Azure environment.
