  • How to accelerate, optimise and secure your serverless application development with Splunk Wed 25th Apr 12:20 - 12:50

    How to accelerate, optimise and secure your serverless application development with Splunk

    Visibility into your AWS environment is critical to optimising the development and improving adoption and user experience of your serverless applications. 

    In this session we’ll explain how Splunk and AWS have built a unique relationship to help our customers quickly collect, centralise, visualise and take actionable decisions with data streamed from AWS server less services including Lamda, API Gateway, Kinesis and Dynamo.

  • Scaling Sparta: Military Lessons For Growing A Dev Team Wed 25th Apr 13:00 - 13:30

    Scaling Sparta: Military Lessons For Growing A Dev Team

    Scaling systems is hard. Scaling people? That’s significantly harder. So how do you scale a team of two to twenty? The answer starts over 2,000 years ago in Sparta. This talk will focus on 3 distinct military organizations and apply the lessons learned to our development teams and organizations.

  • Focus on business value by going serverless Wed 25th Apr 13:40 - 14:10

    Focus on business value by going serverless

    The cloud promises that it enables us to develop software faster than ever before. However, most companies are still developing ‘the old way:’ creating and maintaining virtual machines to host their software. There is more automation nowadays, but there are still a lot of not value adding activities being performed.

    In this session Henry will explore the serverless paradigm and how you can cut down on investing in infrastructure and maintenance and focus on delivering business value and creating satisfied end-users.

    This session will not be over, before you have seen a live serverless demo!

  • How Kubernetes and Serverless are killing DevOps Wed 25th Apr 14:20 - 14:50

    How Kubernetes and Serverless are killing DevOps

    Owain Lewis and Thom Leggett from Oracle will take you on a guided climb up the modern application development stack. You will start at base-camp: the operating system, then proceed via containers and container orchestration to finally summit at serverless computing. With a panoramic view from the top of the stack you will learn how these emerging technologies can streamline your operations and engineering, saving you money and letting your developers focus on your business instead of managing infrastructure. Along the way you will encounter such specimens as Oracle Linux, Docker, Kubernetes and serverless Functions-as-a-Service platforms such as the Fn Project. Finally, before descending to base-camp for a nice cup of tea, you will discover how native species  such as the DevOps will have to adapt or die in this new habitat.

  • Build a Serverless Data Pipeline Wed 25th Apr 15:00 - 15:30

    Build a Serverless Data Pipeline

    Bringing data in from external sources, handling updates to databases and notifications to external systems: this talk is a case study of building a simple stackoverflow dashboard application in a fun and practical way.

    Come to this session for an overview of how we built a serverless pipeline to pull in data and serve as the backend behind the stackoverflow dashboard I built for my team of Developer Evangelists.  With data coming in from an external API plus updates to the data after it has arrived, there were some design decisions to make.  I'll share those decisions and talk about the ones we've iterated on and might alter in the future.  This talk is suitable for developers of all technical stacks.

  • Do change with Continuous Automation for your infrastructure, applications and compliance Thu 26th Apr 11:00 - 11:30

    Do change with Continuous Automation for your infrastructure, applications and compliance

    We believe that the most successful organizations are those that can outperform their peers on metrics of speed, efficiency, and risk.

    While there are benefits to be had by making improvements on any of these outcomes, individually those benefits can only go so far. The ability to deploy code more quickly without removing error-prone processes can uncover new bottlenecks. Efficient deploys without a way to assess the risks of any new updates can lead to costly rollbacks when issues are uncovered later. To ensure we don’t lose momentum as we increase our operational velocity, the question becomes: how can we improve all three of these outcomes? Implementing Continuous Automation can help achieve the velocity your stakeholders demand by improving the speed and efficiency of deployments all without losing sight of the risks involved.

    From batch to pipelines - why Mesos and DC/OS are a solution for emerging patterns in data processing

    Data processing paradigms are undergoing a paradigm shift as we move more and more towards real time processing. Emerging software models such as the SMACK stack are at the forefront of this change, focused on a pipeline processing model, but are also introducing new levels of operational complexity in running multiple complex distributed systems such as Spark, Kafka and Cassandra. In this talk, I'll introduce both Apache Mesos and DC/OS as a solution to this growing problem, and describe the benefits are of running these new kinds of systems for emerging cloud native workloads.

  • Containers, Kubernetes and Cloud Thu 26th Apr 15:00 - 15:30

    Containers, Kubernetes and Cloud

    Creating a single microservice is a well understood problem. Creating a cluster of load-balanced microservices that are resilient and self-healing is not so easy. Managing that cluster with rollouts and rollbacks, scaling individual services on demand, securely sharing secrets and configuration is even harder. Kubernetes, an open-source container management system, can help. In this talk, we will start with a simple microservice, containerize it using Docker, and scale it to a cluster of resilient microservices managed by Kubernetes. Along the way, we will learn what makes Kubernetes a great system for automating deployment, operations and scaling of containerized applications.
