Getting Started with Microservices and Serverless

Monday, November 15, 2021 - 8:30am to 5:30pm

Do you wonder how computers can be “serverless”? Does “microservices” seem like just another buzzword? These two technologies are actually changing software design and operations. They work together to help solve complex problems by breaking them down into smaller pieces through loose coupling and modularization. Where some traditional software design techniques required assembling a monolithic piece of software on a platform, a microservices architecture and a serverless programming paradigm focus more on how to keep the pieces independent, orthogonal in function, and interconnected...

Threat Modeling

Tuesday, November 16, 2021 - 1:00pm to 4:30pm

If it seems as though attacks are always getting better, it’s because they are. Computers, apps, networks, and connected devices are all subject to different types of threats. Systems are facing new threats from things such as voice cloning and computational propaganda. Not to mention the growing importance of threats “at the human layer.” All of this can make it hard to keep up, let alone get ahead of potential threats. So isn’t it time that the threat modeling used by security pros, developers and systems managers evolve? Join Jeffery Payne as he shares his knowledge and experience on...

Measuring DevOps Success with Pipeline Analytics

Thursday, November 18, 2021 - 4:15pm

Do you understand the value of “good” in DevOps? The software delivery chain is the app of apps. If your delivery chain is not up, running, and performant, nothing gets deployed. But how do you measure success? Do you actually know how well your DevOps automation is contributing to your company's bottom line? Chris Riley, DevOps Advocate from will explore the practice of pipeline analytics and demonstrate how tools like Dora and Flow metrics are tools for measuring the performance of your SDLC and the impact of DevOps on your business success.

Improving Agility by Using Customers’ Definitions of “Quality” and “Done”

Thursday, November 18, 2021 - 4:15pm to 5:15pm

“Quality”… velocity, productivity, and efficiency? Improved performance? Few or no bugs? Meets stakeholder requirements? “Done”… we did what we planned? Fits business objectives? Coded, tested, documented, and deployable? Remember our customers? The people paying our salaries? Their satisfaction is supposed to be our *highest* priority. But we fall in love with assumptions about users. We burn weeks coding, testing, merging, and releasing product guesses. We move to the next project, interrupted later when we learn that customers aren’t finding much value or quality in that last release....

Zero-downtime Deployment on Kubernetes

Thursday, November 18, 2021 - 4:15pm to 5:15pm

Kubernetes allows a lot. After discovering its features, it’s easy to think it can magically transform your application deployment process into a painless no-event. For Hello World applications, that is the case. Unfortunately, not many of us do deploy such applications day-to-day because we need to handle state. Though it would be much easier to have stateless apps, and despite our best efforts in this direction, state is found in (at least) two places: sessions and databases. You need to think keeping the state while stopping and starting application nodes. In this talk, I’ll demo how to...
