2021 Webinars



March 18th


3:00PM - 4:00PM (EST)

Journey into Kubernetes

Presenter:  Salim Lakhani

    Running Kubernetes on your laptop is one thing, but running it in production requires a lot of considerations for planning and execution of the project. 

    Voice of America runs multiple news sites around the world and in multiple languages.  These are very large, highly performant sites that are designed to handle millions of hits a day. 

    Topics we will cover include:

    • Getting started with Kubernetes
    • Tooling up for production - things to watch out for.
    • Learning Curve - skills required for management, support, etc.
    • Dev, Test, Live Environments - what’s involved
    • Deployments - application and Kubernetes deployments
    • Technical considerations - for scaling, logging, monitoring, etc.
    • Cost Management - track and limit costs per site and per project
    • Security, Support, and SLA - what’s expected and how to address it
    • Contingency Planning - for loss of data center / access / Fail-over / Fallback

    At the end of the session, attendees will be able to:

    1. Avoid the traps and pitfalls during the migration process

    2. Plan for post migration issues they are likely to face.

    February 18th 


    2:30PM - 4:00PM (EST)

    Configuration Management & Config Split

    Presenter:  John Picozzi

    This webinar will provide an overview to Drupal's Configurations Management System and the Config Split Module.

    Session will begin with Configuration Management basics and common configurations. We will then move into live demo's that will show attendees how to setup Configuration Management and the Config Split Module.

    Attendees are encouraged to have a laptop configured to work locally (a couple of options for this are Lando or DDEV). However, just following along is perfectly acceptable as well.

    Securing Coding Patterns in Drupal

    Presenter:  Sam Mortenson

    While many view security as a moving target, with Drupal there are some concrete coding patterns you should be aware of when writing modules and themes. I'll be sharing lessons learned from researching Drupal security, including some obscure bugs that are more common than you'd think.
