Getting Started with Plugin Development: A Github plugin for workflow dispatches [PREMIUM]
This workshop looks to lower the barrier of entry to Spinnaker plugin development. It aims to show how extensible Spinnaker is and how mature the plugin framework is getting. There will be a coding session here, but it will be as beginner-level as possible. We will create a Spinnaker Orca plugin to interact with the Github API to trigger workflow dispatches. The applications of a plugin to trigger workflow dispatches are quite open-ended and it is meant to demonstrate how a custom Spinnaker integration would typically be approached. Tools to be used here include: (i) gradle, (i) kotlin, (iii) IntelliJ, (iv) Yarn, (v) Deck pluginsdk, (vi) Orca-api packages At the end of this workshop, we will have a working orca plugin and will attempt to make a dispatch to a workflow with this plugin.

Keynote: Scaling Spinnaker for multi-region multi-cloud SaaS deployments in production
Spinnaker's key differentiator is its ability to deliver applications and services in highly distributed multi-cloud environments. The Spinnaker open-source community defines multi-cloud as both IaaS and PaaS providers such as AWS, GCP, Kubernetes, Azure, App Engine and many more [1]. Spinnaker has the power to not just orchestrate deployments to different providers but also maintain deployed application state for visibility and diagnostics and provides an unified experience for the DevOps teams. As Spinnaker is tasked to manage increasingly large infrastructure at Salesforce, performance and scalability limitations started affecting usability and operations. This session presents some of these limitations and the collaboration efforts between Salesforce and OpsMx to overcome some of these scalability limitations. We will discuss Spinnaker sharding efforts and the positive results obtained in our multi-region deployments.

Managed Delivery for Kubernetes: a collaboration story
Managed Delivery has come a long way since last year's Spinnaker Summit. We've added many features, along with stability, usability and extensibility improvements that make it easier to add support for new kinds of infrastructure resources. Through the Spinnaker-as-Code SIG, AWS and Netflix started a partnership to extend Managed Delivery support via plugins to enable management of Kubernetes resources and the deployment of Docker images into those resources as part of high-level delivery workflows, where a user defines the logical environments and promotion constraints, and Spinnaker takes care of the details. In this talk, we discuss our collaboration, the progress made so far, and exciting opportunities for the future of Kubernetes support in Managed Delivery.

How Customer Success matters in Product Led growth
Today we will walk you through the journey of why sharing your pain points, not solutions, with customer success is the best way for you to get the solution you need. Talking to customer success early and often provides the CS team with the signals needed to share themes and customer trends with the Product team. Doing so allows both groups to dive into problem areas, from user experience gaps, feature gaps, or best practice recommendations. The CS team is your advocate, they are the life line for how to influence the product. - We will talk to how our partnership works between CS and PM - How your ideas become features - When we partner we create best practice for better guardrails. - How culture vs technology weigh into our decisions.

Using Spinnaker like a pro when Kubernetes multi-tenancy is a nightmare
In Adobe we've been successfully using Spinnaker for over three years now and leveraged it to perform EC2 and Kubernetes based deployments. More recently, we've created a custom built process of onboarding namespaces as individual accounts for our multi-tenant Kubernetes platform. We wanted to achieve in a single pipeline execution namespace creation, account onboarding, application deployment and namespace deletion. This feature was needed for our preview environments that had to be short lived. In the past our clients had to manually generate the files needed for a new account and each onboard required a new Spinnaker sync. This was a tedious work and not a good client experience so we decided to go with a different approach. The presentation will share the process of developing this feature and the challenges we had to overcome from authorization, fast onboarding, config files generation and validation, dynamic account discovery and many others.

Visibility from Code to Cloud - How pipeline analytics is changing how we think about the SDLC
Application development teams are no stranger too monitoring. But today monitoring is largely focused on managing applications in production. Enterprises are missing a huge opportunity to learn more about their development practices, measure success, align development to the business, and have more resilient delivery chains. Pipeline analytics is an amazing tool for enterprises to lead with their development practices. When organizations leverage telemetry from their tool chain they break down visibility silos and can better manage the SDLC base on real data. In this session we will talk about the power of pipeline analytics, and how organizations can leverage it to create visibility from code to cloud. - The tremendous gap in visibility for the SDLC - What is pipeline analytics - Business and technical benefits - Ways to approach pipeline visibility

The challenges of using Spinnaker as a multi-tenant Continuous Delivery service and how we have overcome them
As a the amount and complexity of CI/CD tools used by development teams increased in our organization, we were tasked by our leadership team to create a sustainable CI/CD service that will be operated by Site ReliabIlity Engineering teams and reused on any development project. We embarked on that journey, selecting Spinnaker as our central Continuous Delivery service and working on a multi-tenant deployment that would allow us to onboard users, provide managed delivery services and improve speed and agility for cloud delivery projects. In this talk we will go over the business motivations for building a multi-tenant Continuous Delivery Service based on Spinnaker, the benefits it brings to development projects and the challenges that we faced when implementing the solution.

Enabling Diverse Application Use Cases using Spinnaker - Cisco Success Story
Cisco adopted Spinnaker a couple of years ago and has onboarded more than 1000+ applications. Initially, Cisco started off deploying traditional cloud-native container-based applications to on-prem cloud platforms (OpenShift) and then to public cloud (AWS, GCP). Now Cisco is extending to other technology platforms using custom deployments models available in Spinnaker. Cisco is successfully deploying to Snowflake (SaaS data warehouse), Teradata, and Informatica (Data Analytics platforms) and planning to extend to other use cases in the future. In this session, you will learn about considerations for using Spinnaker for non-cloud platform workloads and best practices and learning from these migrations.

Hardening Spinnaker Pipelines
Since Spinnaker is our central solution for continuous deployments, it is trusted with a lot of permissions. If Spinnaker is not sufficiently hardened, these permissions can be abused. Generalized WFH and phishing on the rise add to our concerns. This talk is about preventing such abuse. Jacques will present the motivation for this work at Snap, followed by a presentation of security building blocks for isolating pipelines, and concluding with a motivation for enforcing runtime access controls on pipelines (e.g. what’s in that trigger message?). Jacob will present the work done at Armory to extend the Policy Engine plugin to support the enforcement of runtime access controls on pipelines. By re-using the existing Open Policy Agent support in Policy Engine, this can be supported without introducing a new set of policy language and semantics. The future of this work will include standard policy templates. Tim will present the work done at Styra to support Armory. He will also provide a more general introduction to Open Policy Agent, used widely for externalizing authorization. This will cover unit testing and a demo showing examples of hardening Spinnaker.

To Go or Not To Go: 4 Error Metrics You Need for Confident Release Validation
Canary deployments are a great way to reduce risk while maintaining speed. But the fact is, even the most cutting-edge organizations leveraging this approach still experience frequent production issues. So what’s missing? Historically, engineering teams have assessed canary release quality through the lens of performance and other high level gauges, for example, “Is my service up or down?” or “ Is it slow?” But those metrics don’t tell the full story. To truly have confidence in your release, you need to drill down to the code level to understand what’s new, what’s changed and what’s critical. That’s why we’ve identified 4 key error metrics that you can leverage in your Spinnaker canary analysis to make better pass/fail judgments and ensure the reliability of your applications. In this session, we’ll delve into why traditional judgment metrics have fallen short, then define and walk through each of the 4 error metrics, including real-world stories, key data sources and best practices for configuring thresholds.

I don’t always test my code, but when I do it’s in production
Using automated canary analysis can help increase development productivity, reduce risk and keep developers happy. Emitting and storing metrics are critically important for any application, but those metrics aren’t valuable on their own, they need to be actionable. Many deployment practices use manual canaries to reduce risk, but require human intervention to orchestrate the deployment but also make a risk assessment by looking at 100s of metrics dashboard. This is time-consuming and extremely error-prone. In this talk, I’ll discuss how to apply statistical analysis to critical application metrics to make automated decisions and remove the error-prone humans from the process altogether.

Dynamic Account Management Framework for Spinnaker
Spinnaker reads its configuration from static configuration files, optionally reloading them via Spring Cloud Config. This works well when configuration rarely changes and the number of accounts is small, but presents challenges in a world where accounts can be provisioned dynamically and frequently. In this talk we discuss the details of an upcoming dynamic account management framework for all Spinnaker services, that helps mitigate these performance and complexity problems. The framework implements the dynamic account registration RFC that is recently approved by the community. We will go over the implementation and demo a few use cases.

How We Decided the Time Was Now - Choosing Spinnaker as a part of your CI/CD Solution
The old adage “time is money” is more relevant now than it ever was. It’s as competitive within many of our market spaces. So, when that is the case, it’s important to move your products to market & release new features or fixes as fast as you can, while maintaining the integrity and quality of your product. CI/CD creates a way to do this; many of us had other deployment systems that worked just fine when we discovered Spinnaker. What do you do when your current solution isn’t flexible-, reliable-, or fast enough? How do you decide it's time for a major infrastructure change while remaining as un-disruptive to your engineers as possible? Join us as we facilitate a Fireside Chat to discuss just that: The inflection point where organizations made the call to overhaul their CI/CD pipeline and implement Spinnaker as a solution. You’ll hear various perspectives on: What were the pain-points of previous deployment strategies when looking for another solution? What were the concerns surrounding the implementation & rollout of Spinnaker as a solution? What is some key advice for other organizations who are just now starting to look at Spinnaker?

Scale CI/CD in Your Enterprise Through An Internal Spinnaker as-a-Service Model
As Spinnaker's adoption increases beyond a single group, the Enterprises developer productivity team is increasingly looking to offer Spinnaker CD to more internal groups. While some organizations have adopted a model of large Spinnaker instances to support all of their groups, they quickly realized that having a large Spinnaker instance is challenging. Spinnaker as-a-Service for individual internal business units or developer groups is an approach where the central team provides new Spinnaker instances to groups on-demand. However, the central team is interested in minimizing the operational cost of such a large number of Spinnaker instances. In this talk, we will talk about how to build an internal Spinnaker as-a-Service in your organization, covering topics such as easy installation, configuration, app onboarding, maintenance, and update of multiple Spinnaker instances.

Implementing Custom Job Stages into Spinnaker with K8s [PREMIUM]
This panel will focus on how to integrate custom job stages into Spinnaker that will run jobs onto Kubernetes clusters. This is a common ask and a popular pipeline stage as it allows for many custom/out-of-band solutions to diverse problems. Some examples include running custom scripts or jobs after a bake or deploy stage. We will first start with why custom job stages will prove useful, then deep dive into how to set this up locally, and then introduce tricks and tips on how to get the most of the pipeline. Audiences can walk away understanding more about the internals of Kubernetes as well as Spinnaker, and ideas on what they can accomplish with their all inclusive, automated, pipeline.

Hermez Pipelines — forging a path to a delightful deployment experience at Pinterest
The world of deployments is a complex pool of pods, pipelines and platforms. At Pinterest, we have the added complexity of scale - hundreds of services working together to provide inspiring content for 400 million monthly active users. Recently, we've averaged around 800 daily deployments by Spinnaker. Since adopting Spinnaker, we've found that our engineers and service owners want the benefits of Spinnaker without the added complexity and overhead. So in this talk, Tobi & Lise will introduce Hermez Pipelines - a beautiful abstraction built on top of Spinnaker that brings canonical deploy pipelines to Pinterest. Come to this talk to learn why we picked this option, how Hermez Pipelines helps us reach our goals, why we don’t expose Spinnaker UI to our engineers, why you should do the same, and why UX matters more than you might think.

Yahoo Case Study: Automated Canary Analysis using Spinnaker Kayenta
Canary Analysis is an essential part of any production deployment pipeline. As part of Yahoo/Verizon Media, we have many properties like Yahoo Homepage, Yahoo Mail, Yahoo Finance, Yahoo News, Yahoo Sports, TechCrunch, HuffPost, etc. that serve a large number of users. It is crucial to introduce changes in a consistently safe manner to minimize user impact minutes. At Yahoo/Verizon Media, we are running Spinnaker Kayenta in a Kubernetes Deployment and have integrated it with Screwdriver (https://screwdriver.cd/), an open source build platform for continuous delivery. We have extended Kayenta to support Splunk and an OpenTSDB based internal metrics service. We also built tools to facilitate easy onboarding for applications and designed a configuration syntax based on the Hashicorp Configuration Language (HCL) for running canary analysis. A deployment of Nike’s Referee (https://github.com/Nike-Inc/referee) tool is also set up to allow on-demand canary analysis.

Develop Pipelines as Code
Creating pipelines can be done via Spinnaker UI or templates. Additionally, Armory’s Pipelines as Code feature provides a way to specify pipeline definitions in source code repos such as GitHub. This talk highlights why use pipelines as code by practical use cases covering reusability, security and change control. Many micro-services are deploying across multiple AWS environments, from dev, staging, RC to production. Use of shareable pipeline modules allows easier re-use for common stages such as bake, deploy manifest, docker registry triggers, find artifacts from pipelines and run cron jobs... With pipeline in github, we can keep track change history for audit purpose. This is very critical to meet security requirements. Enforce pipeline change policies and permissions based on LDAP groups.

Spinnaker Observability in Practice with Kubernetes.
In our session, we will talk about how we are enabling the three pillars of Observability: monitoring, logs, and tracing, to ensure high-availability of our Spinnaker environments. Spinnaker can be chatty when it comes to Observability signals, and at Armory we use an observability platform vendor and operate many Spinnaker environments. Observability platform vendors typically charge by the number of metric time series (MTS), data points per minute (DPM), or amount of data ingested (Log Data). We recently released open-sourced a plugin for Spinnaker, the Armory Observability Plugin, that will enable us, among other things, to intelligently control costs with our Observability Vendor. After we talk about how enabling observability of Spinnaker in Kubernetes we will discuss what this enables us to do in practice, dashboards, alerting, canary deployments of Spinnaker services, etc, from an SRE and DevOps perspective.

Secure Delivery in our Remote Reality: Modzy's Approach to DevSecOps
Even before COVID drove many to remote work, software development teams have been trending towards remote delivery, contractors, gig economy workers, and off-shore/near-shore contributors. Such a mixed landscape can make maintaining best practices with regards to DevSecOps, protecting your company's intellectual property, and delivering a quality product difficult. Modzy was born as a remote-native company with heritage and experience delivering cutting-edge technical solutions for some of the most security focused clients. Come hear how our adoption of industry best practices, such as the US Department of Defense's DevSecOps reference architecture and tools like Armory Spinnaker, allowed us to empower our developers to rapidly develop, test, and iterate on our product using Agile methodologies while simultaneously segmenting off those parts of our product that required more stringent security controls. We'll also cover how we isolate access to higher environments so that only our automated delivery pipelines have access to make changes, ensuring a consistent release process with a well-documented provenance.

Migrate Legacy Deployment Orchestration to Spinnaker
This presentation takes audience through a journey to migrate from legacy deployment orchestration to Spinnaker. The legacy CD is a combination of TeamCity, command line tools, DCOS, slack and meetings. This scenario has multiple issues across security, change control and release management. Given TeamCity serves as both CI and CD, it has access across trust domains and failed the least privilege principle. In this scenario, deployment change control is limited due to relatively open permissions. Deployment pipeline configurations vary greatly and is lack of standardization. As a result, enforcing release processes is becoming more difficult especially when more micro-services are deployed into production. To improve deployment orchestration's security, efficiency, and manageability, launched deployment orchestration by Spinnaker. After migration to Spinnaker, we are able to standardize deployment pipelines, define and enforce permission policies, streamline release processes, enforce change control and separate CI from CD and reduce manual actions. As a result, release cycle reliability and efficiency are greatly improved.

From Zero to EKS with Terraform and Kleat
Traditionally, bootstrapping Amazon EKS and Spinnaker has a reputation for being complex and challenging. In a world where "cloud native" means that processes should be declarative and easily repeatable, that sort of reputation tends to go against the grain. However, today's modern open-source tooling has matured dramatically over the last few years, and alongside that tooling we ask a simple question: "Who says it has to be difficult?" In this talk, we'll explore what it takes to build a fully-automated declarative pipeline for bootstrapping Amazon EKS and Spinnaker that uses only open-source tools. From Spinnaker's new Kubernetes-native deployment tool, Kleat, to Terraform and Weaveworks Flux, we'll break down each individual tool, where it best fits, and how they interoperate. We'll also explore "the power of opinionation," and showcase how customizing these pipelines to your organization can maximize the efficiency you get from AWS while minimizing your operational burden. The end result will be a single-command pipeline that takes a (mostly) empty AWS account and turns it into a production-ready playground with Kubernetes and Spinnaker at the ready!

How we deploy Spinnaker microservice pods via Spinnaker at Pinterest
Pinterest is a cloud first visual discovery engine that serves over 320MM users. Pinterest built its continuous delivery platform on Spinnaker. And today it’s used to deploy our services to VM hosts, K8S pods and real time data processing framework. In July 2020, Spinnaker averaged 800 deployments daily. In this talk, I will share how we designed our CD system to deploy itself. And the topics include: 1. Impact on Spinnaker’s availability & reliability Spinnaker is the foundation of our CD system, and its SLA has critical production impact. In the past, we deployed Spinnaker microservice pods via a command line tool and then manually tested the new deployment,which was prone to human error. I will present our new approach that automates the deployment and rollback of prod Spinnaker with a staging Spinnaker pipeline, which decreased deployment time, increased deployment frequency, and significantly reduced the oncall person’s time spent on deployment, as well as production incidents. 2. Challenge to deploy microservices with complex k8s configmap I will share how we built a Spinnaker custom stage to work with other components of Pinterest’s CD system (Hermez) to deploy to K8S.

Delivering Golden AMIs with Spinnaker
This panel will ultimately show you how to use Spinnaker to build a GoldenAMI pipeline. The accompanying use case is: often times, teams need approved AMIs that meet the security assessment standards. The typical process is to have all the AMIs baked and then deployed into instances with Spinnaker, then out of band, to run some sort of security assessment tool against those instances. The issue with this, is that the instances are already deployed, meaning that the time spent on spin-up is wasted. The assessment, depending on the 3rd party solution, is also going to take much longer as the runtime scales with the number of instances/agents it must evaluate. And finally, this process it decoupled from Spinnaker itself. The solution I want to show you is that we can use web-hook stages within Spinnaker, invoke AWS Lambda Function/API Gateway/AWS Inspector to run these assessments on a GoldenAMI candidate. Once the assessment is complete and approved manually, the AMI can continue down the pipeline and into a GoldenAMI approved environment, for instances to utilize. This will all be ran through one single pipeline execution within Spinnaker.

Configuration injection from Git
Teams today want to version everything including configuration items. They also like to parameterize configuration for different environments and depending on the environment it is being deployed, use the configuration for that environment. How do I manage such dynamic configuration in a Spinnaker pipeline? This session shows an approach that was used to dynamically inject configuration into a Spinnaker pipeline from Git. The concept can always be extended to other sources like bitbucket, S3, Vault or other such sources.

Benchmarking and Optimizing Software Delivery Performance
The proliferation of the modern DevOps toolchain has enabled teams the freedom to pick and choose the tools and pipeline architectures that best suit their needs and processes in an effort to efficiently and reliably deliver high quality software. While effective in enablement for individual teams, a common issue that is emerging across the organizational level is pipeline sprawl and tooling fragmentation. This presents significant challenges for teams that have a desire to benchmark and optimize their software development and delivery performance across the entire DevOps lifecycle. In this talk, Sumo Logic's Director of Business Development and Technology Alliances discusses how their Software Development Observability solution allows organizations to benchmark and optimize their CI/CD pipeline with the use of automatically generated, real-time metrics and insights backed by raw logs and events from modern tools like Spinnaker.
