1. Introduction to Vulture

Short description:

Vulture is the largest and fastest growing independent cloud platform, serving millions of customers globally. With a powerful Kubernetes engine, partnerships with leading cloud orchestration providers, and support for open source projects, Vulture offers flexibility and customizability. The platform also features an easy-to-use control panel, custom ISOs for launching servers, automatic backups, and a one-click app marketplace.

Hey, what's up everyone, welcome to Vulture's presentation. My name is Walt Ribeiro and I'm Vulture's Developer Advocate. I'm going to show you all about what Vulture does and let's just jump right into it.

So what is Vulture? Well, Vulture is the infrastructure cloud. We are the largest and the fastest growing independent cloud platform. Our cloud service has been deployed to millions of customers all across the globe to over 20 locations. We have an awesome price to performance ratio and we serve developers, IT ops, small and medium businesses and many brands. Here are some of them on the right hand side.

So we have 23 locations, we're independent, we have this very powerful Vulture Kubernetes engine. So if you're building an application on top of Kubernetes, rather than you dealing with the complexities of Kubernetes, let our engine deal with that and you just work on your product. We have great partnerships with Wasabi, Cloudways, Cycle.io for your cloud orchestration and more. We have major operating systems, Windows, VZLinux and so much more there too. We have object storage, bare metal, block storage and we have a very easy to use control panel.

We can't even just talk about this the entire time, let me show you. So let's go over here and when you sign up for Vulture, and don't do it yet because we're going to give you a little gift at the end to get started with Vulture, but when you sign up you're sent to my.vulture.com and this is what you see. This is your panel with your billing information, with our Vulture support docs. On top here you can control your snapshots, your backups, your Kubernetes, your load balancers and it's really easy to get started. So just to start, I'll go here and I'll go deploy new server and I'll click on cloud compute, I'll say my CPU is going to be AMD, I'll choose New York because I'm just outside of Manhattan and I'll stick with Debian, server size that's great, I'll enable automatic backup so I want to keep my data safe and deploy now. So in just a few clicks I've now deployed a server on Vulture's infrastructure. So going back here, why would you choose Vulture? Well we have load balancers, we have this API V2, which is fantastic, as I talked about we have our Vulture Kubernetes engine and Vulture supports open source projects. We have repos for our Terraform provider, we have repos for our Golang work, and so much more.

So as I mentioned, we have flexible operating systems but we also have one more thing, we have custom ISOs. So if you have an operating system that maybe you built from scratch or maybe one that we don't have in-house, you're able to launch a server with that custom ISO and I'll show you how that works too. I'll go back to Cloud Compute, back down here, and over here it says upload ISO, I'll click on that and there's the upload form. It's literally just that easy. And after I upload, I'll deploy now, no, I have to choose which ISO. But when you do, then it's just that easy to get started. We also have automatic backups which I showed you and we have this really, really, really great Vultr marketplace which is a one click app marketplace that you can add any app, product, service onto your website. And I'll show you an example of that. So I'll go back here and this here is vultr.com forward slash marketplace.

2. Vultr Marketplace and Contact Information

Short description:

Vultr Marketplace offers a wide range of applications, including cyber panel, lightspeed WordPress, and various servers, databases, and CMSs. With just a few clicks, you can easily deploy and provision cloud instances of your desired applications. By uploading your own apps or using existing ones, you can reach developers worldwide for one-click installations. Vultr also provides enterprise-grade networking options, such as bringing your own IP space and Direct Connect.

This is not on the backend panel, this is on the front-facing website. And here is our marketplace. We have everything from cyber panel, lightspeed WordPress. We have server one so much, we have databases, we have CMSs.

So in order to get started, I can do this on the back panel, but I can also start let's say I wanted to start a open lightspeed WordPress server in literally one click. I click on deploy, it kicks me out to the control panel that you're familiar with now. And over here it already has it highlighted for you. So in two clicks, 1, 2 you're ready to go and just like that I now have a cloud instance of WordPress and of our Debian server that we installed before. In just a few minutes, it will be done provisioning and then I'm ready to go.

So let's talk a little bit about Vultr Marketplace. You can submit your own apps or you can use one of ours. This can be a video game, a platform, a service, an app that you're trying to build or that you're trying to deploy to developers all around the world. The advantage of uploading it to Vultr is that you have access to all those developers as a one-click installation of your product or service. And some examples are WordPress that people use to build a website or Azure Cast which people use to start a podcast radio station. So we also have a lot in terms of enterprise-grade networking. You can bring your own IP space, Direct Connect, and so much more. So as I mentioned, we have 23 locations and there are a lot more coming, and to get started on Vultr, you can use GetNation150.

Fine-tuning DevOps for People over Perfection
Top Content
Demand for DevOps has increased in recent years as more organizations adopt cloud native technologies. Complexity has also increased and a "zero to hero" mentality leaves many people chasing perfection and FOMO. This session focusses instead on why maybe we shouldn't adopt a technology practice and how sometimes teams can achieve the same results prioritizing people over ops automation & controls. Let's look at amounts of and fine-tuning everything as code, pull requests, DevSecOps, Monitoring and more to prioritize developer well-being over optimization perfection. It can be a valid decision to deploy less and sleep better. And finally we'll examine how manual practice and discipline can be the key to superb products and experiences.

In the past years Yarn took a spot as one of the most common tools used to develop JavaScript projects, in no small part thanks to an opinionated set of guiding principles. But what are they? How do they apply to Yarn in practice? And just as important: how do they benefit you and your projects?
In this talk we won't dive into benchmarks or feature sets: instead, you'll learn how we approach Yarn’s development, how we explore new paths, how we keep our codebase healthy, and generally why we think Yarn will remain firmly set in our ecosystem for the years to come.

Deploying React Native apps manually on a local machine can be complex. The differences between Android and iOS require developers to use specific tools and processes for each platform, including hardware requirements for iOS. Manual deployments also make it difficult to manage signing credentials, environment configurations, track releases, and to collaborate as a team.
Appflow is the cloud mobile DevOps platform built by Ionic. Using a service like Appflow to build React Native apps not only provides access to powerful computing resources, it can simplify the deployment process by providing a centralized environment for managing and distributing your app to multiple platforms. This can save time and resources, enable collaboration, as well as improve the overall reliability and scalability of an app.
In this workshop, you’ll deploy a React Native application for delivery to Android and iOS test devices using Appflow. You’ll also learn the steps for publishing to Google Play and Apple App Stores. No previous experience with deploying native applications is required, and you’ll come away with a deeper understanding of the mobile deployment process and best practices for how to use a cloud mobile DevOps platform to ship quickly at scale.
