Keynote: Faster, Safer, Trusted - The Evolution of Autodesk’s Cloud Deployment Platform - Jesse Sanford & Cole Duclos, Senior Principal Engineers, Autodesk
Autodesk’s Developer Enablement organization has a goal to increase developer productivity 100X. To do so, Autodesk has invested heavily in building their next-generation cloud deployment platform powered by open-source tools like Spinnaker.

Autodesk began their Spinnaker journey 4 years ago. Over that time, they have built a user-friendly abstraction overlaying Spinnaker and AWS. From imperative pipeline patterns to declarative GitOps models, their offering has matured, allowing hundreds of developers to deliver software easily. By reducing the toil that comes with deploying and managing secure and compliant applications, Autodesk engineering teams can now focus on innovative features, providing immediate value to their customers.

In this talk Cole Duclos and Jesse Sanford will talk about Autodesk’s past, present, and future CD platform, how Spinnaker has been central to that vision and hopefully pass along a few learnings along the way.

Developer Enablement through a GitOps Driven IaC Control Plane at Autodesk - Jesse Sanford, Autodesk & Manabu McCloskey, AWS
At this point GitOps is a well understood concept amongst DevOps practitioners. Talks and posts promising magnifications of developer enablement through GitOps abound. However, they rarely focus on the intersection of dev enablement and security/compliance. In this talk Jesse Sanford and Manabu McCloskey will walk through a recent PoC done at Autodesk that flexes GitOps for the delivery of compliant infrastructure as code using Managed Delivery and Crossplane. The PoC focused on using Crossplane to split the responsibilities over the ownership of the IaC and separating the concerns to the appropriate stakeholders in the organization. Security team members can develop security controls alongside platform and product engineers who develop capabilities and functionality on top of them. Additionally, using Spinnaker Keel, all parties can work through a unified git driven workflow where PRs serve as our change requests and merges trigger the updates to secure infrastructure across the organization. Finally, novel approaches for wiring up Keel with Crossplane through the use of the K8s plugin, and sharing of secrets between Clouddriver and Flux through a custom sidecar will be discussed.

Continuous Software Delivery Using Spinnaker and Jenkins in Cloud - Irshad A Buchh & Paul Roberts, Amazon Web Services
Continuous deployment is the best practice that has kept companies like Netflix and Amazon years ahead of most other software development companies. Spinnaker levels the playing field for smaller companies struggling with manual glue code and error prone processes. In this session Irshad shall discuss how Spinnaker enables companies to deploy software in cloud as rapidly as a web-scale company at a fraction of the cost and effort when integrated with existing CI tools like Jenkins. Irshad shall explain how Spinnaker treats Kubernetes applications as first-class citizens and helps the IT team deploy the application into any version of Kubernetes including Amazon EKS rapidly. Irshad shall also discuss how Spinnaker’s pipelines and strategies make it possible to deploy, scale, and manage individual services that are part of a larger microservices-based application.

Spinnaker as a Platform: Driving Cloud Adoption in Healthcare - Joel Vasallo, TAG - The Aspen Group
Adopting the cloud is at the forefront of many companies goals in the coming years. To truly recognize the power of the cloud most companies need to undergo a digital transformation; avoiding forklifting monoliths and adopting DevOps practices. While exciting, this also poses many risks, challenges, and key decisions; such as tooling, rearchitecting, and ultimately modernization of applications. We all want to leverage containers and Kubernetes but there should be a paved road to get there. The goal of platform engineering teams should be to build paved roads to drive adoption and empower engineers to build, deploy, and own their applications.

In this talk, we will share some strategies from TAG (The Aspen Group) on how we did this using Spinnaker including:
  • Basic overview of the technical challenges we encountered when we started our cloud journey
  • Brief overview of Spinnaker and why we chose it at TAG
  • How Spinnaker was used to drive adoption of the cloud and ultimately transformation to Kubernetes as the core
  • Considerations and solutions to meet and address compliance requirements using Spinnaker
  • Next phase of where the platform is going using Spinnaker as an engine

Shore - A Framework For Spinnaker Pipelines - Eyal Mor & Simon Chammah, Autodesk
“Shore” (verb) is a tool used to develop deployment pipelines for different pipeline based products like Spinnaker. Developed in Autodesk, it is currently driving “most” of the Platform Pipelines Development in the company. As part of the summit we will introduce Shore Framework to the world, And unveil the project in the Open Source Space. Presentation will include (still preliminary may change) * Developing Pipelines is a hard task * What is Shore (and why?) * The use of Shore in Autodesk * Open Sourcing to the world on Stage * Roadmap & Future Why is Developing pipelines hard? Developing CI/CD pipelines is a hard task in a Platform. They need to be resilient, easy to use and extendable pieces of software that are run by another system (AKA Spinnaker, Jenkins, Tekton, ArgoCD, Waypoint, etc...) When developing, extending or testing pipelines on any 3rd party system there are a few key problems that come up. * Local development can be very hard * Stages/Pipelines are not inherently testable * Collaboration and code re-usability could be re-defined

Let's Work Together! : CI/CD Interoperability using CDEvents - Vibhav Bobade, Uffizzi
The CloudEvents format was introduced to standardise event formats in the cloud ecosystem. This has allowed different event brokers to consider a single format for communication. The need for better interoperability between CI/CD systems is gaining importance, as companies continue to have multiple CI/CD systems in their environment. To facilitate interoperability between them in an event-driven fashion, the CDEvents community was born which would use CloudEvents as the base format for the CDEvents format as a standard for communication between different CI/CD systems. In this talk, the speaker will go over the CDEvents support for Spinnaker, and how to interoperate with other CI/CD systems using CDEvents.

Events in Action With Spinnaker, Tekton and Keptn - Jalander Ramagiri & Adam Kenihan, Ericsson Software Technology
Many organizations use more than one CI/CD tools as part of their pipelines and most of the times the organizations implement their own glue code in order to make the tools work with each other. Due to these concerns, CDEvents project hosted by the CDF started working on a common specification for Continuous Delivery events based on CloudEvents hosted by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). CDEvents enables interoperability in the complete software production ecosystem, helping CI/CD tools and services to communicate with each other about occurrences in a CI/CD ecosystem. As part of its work, the community created a Go-SDK to introduce native CDEvents support to various cloud native CI/CD technologies such as Keptn and Tekton. A new Java-SDK has also been developed to bring other CI/CD technologies into the picture such as Spinnaker. In this session, we will talk about the interoperability challenges within the CI/CD ecosystem and how CDEvents aims to overcome those. We will also talk about Java SDK and our proposal to contribute CDEvents support to Spinnaker Community which enables Spinnaker to communicate with other CI/CD tools within the ecosystem.

One challenge is supporting multiple AWS partitions such as Gov Cloud and Commercial whilst maintaining sub-linear growth in Spinnaker operations and cost. In AWS, it's not possible to assume roles across partitions. Open-source spinnaker only supports one AWS managing account, which means managed accounts must all be in the same partition. Salesforce has added support for multiple managing accounts, making it possible to support managed accounts in multiple partitions in one spinnaker instance.
