For many organizations, delivering software into production has become increasingly more complex with long testing cycles and a division between development and operations teams. DevOps is a cultural movement that is breaking down those barriers. Focusing on automation, collaboration, tools, and knowledge sharing, DevOps is showing that developers and system engineers have much to learn from each other. Through a series of hands-on exercises, Melissa Benua will use a sample web application to demonstrate how to automate its build and deployment pipeline, using infrastructure and pipeline...

Getting Started with Microservices and Serverless

Add to calendar
Monday, November 9, 2020 - 10:00am 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...

Finding Performance Issues Early with JMeter

Add to calendar
Monday, November 9, 2020 - 10:00am to 5:30pm

Performance issues can be difficult to resolve when found late in the software development lifecycle. Using an open-source tool like JMeter to develop, manage, and execute load and performance tests while the code is being developed, is an inexpensive way to help find performance issues. Executing these performance tests as part of your CI/CD pipeline enables users to find and resolve performance issues as soon as they are introduced. This hands-on workshop will help attendees develop a foundational understanding of JMeter, while engaging them in creating and running performance tests...

Broken Scrum practices limit your organization's ability to take full advantage of the agility Scrum should bring: The development team isn't cross-functional or self-organizing, the product owner doesn't get value for their investment, and stakeholders and customers are left wondering when something—anything—will get delivered. Learn how experienced Scrum masters balance the demands of these three levels of servant leadership while removing organizational impediments and helping Scrum teams deliver real-world value. Discover how to visualize your work, resolve impediments, and empower...

Test-Driven Development for the Uninitiated

Add to calendar
Tuesday, November 10, 2020 - 10:00am to 5:30pm

You might have heard of test-driven development (TDD), a practice where tests are the drivers of the code, and you want to know more. You might have even tried it, but come away feeling dejected and confused. Now is your chance to have an expert show you the ropes! TDD is the best practice for high-quality, low-defect-count software. That said, why is it still unfamiliar to many developers? Byron Katz will do his part to help rectify that issue, through this intensive workshop led by an experienced practitioner. But what is TDD? Practically and simply, in TDD you write a test first, then...
