30min talk


Wiktor Jan Jurasz (AGH University of Science and Technology (PL))


In this talk I will present tools and flow that we use to make the deployment & monitoring of the system manageable.

  • Git & Gitlab as VCS
  • Gradle for artifacts building
  • Ansible for deployment and automatic generation of environment specific documentation
  • Jenkins with its DSL pipelines to govern the process of automatic softwaredelivery to various environments.

Apart from main deployment flow, following tools will be discussed:

  • Monitoring the system using Prometheus, Alertmanager and Grafana.
  • Log unification and browsing facilities with the ElasticSearch stack provided by IT.
