Continuous Delivery in Practice: A Hands-On DevOps Workshop

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

What is continuous deployment? How does it differ from continuous integration and continuous delivery? Every company thinks they want CI/CD, but few teams have experience in knowing what that means and how to build it out. Join Janna and Melissa as they walk through building your own build pipeline using GitHub Actions, Docker, and Azure to continuously deploy to production. They will walk you through some of the basics of Git, Docker, and YAML to create build pipelines that run test automation and deploy an application. These tools and techniques will help reduce debugging differences...

Getting Started with Microservices and Serverless

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

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...

Test-Driven Development for the Uninitiated

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...
