Speaker: Matt Ray

For too long audits and security reviews have been seen as resistant or even blocking the frequent release of software. Auditors require access to static systems and environments, which would seem to make continuous delivery impossible. Too frequently audits are a fire drill reaction to the current state and temporary fixes are put in place to appease the compliance audit without being integrated into future releases.

What if auditing, compliance and security could be fully integrated into continuous integration and continuous delivery pipelines? What if we automated our compliance policies so they could be “shifted left” as part of the application and infrastructure lifecycle? This session will discuss real-world examples of how to translate security and compliance requirements into software and make them a proactive part of the software-delivery process. We can decrease risk by defining compliance rules as code and making them a part of the standard continuous delivery workflow.

Why would this talk be a good fit for the DevOpsDays audience?
Incorporating compliance and audit checking into continuous integration pipelines allows teams to move faster and safer at the same time.

Speaker: Marcin Wielgus

4am on-call alerts that wake you only to restart an unresponsive web server. Developers, who can’t decide if five machines is enough to run their new application. Sudden traffic spikes that force you to spin extra service instances on Friday evening. Misplaced deployments. Frequent requests for yet another 50gb of network storage.

Does it sound too familiar? Are you wondering whether some cluster management system could take care of all of this boring stuff and let you focus on really cool problems? Then this talk is for you!

During this presentation I will describe Kubernetes features that help to reduce the maintenance cost of running containerised applications. After a really short refresher of basic Kubernetes concepts I will explain scheduling hints, probes, auto-scaling and automatic storage provisioning, and show how to use these mechanisms to make your deployments more robust and quickly adjust them to changing traffic or operational needs.

Why would this talk be a good fit for the DevOpsDays audience?
The keynote talk for this conference is about automation and this talk will show how to bring automation to production in the (probably) most popular container orchestration system.

About the Speaker:

Marcin Wielgus is a Senior Software Engineer at Google. Marcin joined the internet search giant in 2010 and since then he has been working on various projects, ranging from Android applications to recommendation engines. Currently he is a Tech Lead of the Kubernetes Autoscaling team.

Speaker: Amit Kumar

Banks are being disrupted by fast changing expectation from customers. Most of the banks are struggling due to: 1. Unprecedented demand on their IT (which is tuned towards reliability than speed) 2. Sophisticated technology landscape 3. Thought partnership between business & IT

In our journey towards introducing DevOps in the bank, we experimented and built various tools to bridge the gap between software development and system administration. During this journey we learnt and followed “lean principles” and the paradigm to treat “Infrastructure as Code”. This helped in building highly effective continuous delivery process.

The talk will take the audience through the journey we took: * from separate SysAdmin to integrated Dev & Ops * from everything manual to treat Infrastructure as Code * from VM to full containerized microservices * from manual monitoring to full customer journey mapping * from just being a sysadmin to become Platform as a Service Provider

Why would this talk be a good fit for the DevOpsDays audience?
This talk details the journey we took @BTPN. It will be a learning experience for the audience to understand: * challenges we faced in this DevOps transformation journey * balance between going wild introducing new tools and techs * mindset change

About the Speaker:

Amit Kumar has more than 15 years of experience in software industry with focus on developing scalable software solutions.

He is passionate about engineering team building, Agile and DevOps process methodologies with focus on feature-based web software design.

He is an acclaimed speaker, speaking at Developer and Open Source Conferences worldwide. He is in constant pursuit of simple innovative solutions to complex problems.

Speaker: Andrew Clay Shafer

For the better part of a decade, devops captured our imagination about delivering better solutions with better organizations.

A lot has changed in the last few years and change does not appear to be slowing down soon. When we understand principles, we can derived relevant practices and tools, but that doesn’t mean we all need to start that work from the beginning.

How can our mindsets, skillsets and toolsets accommodate change without being overwhelmed or falling behind?

This talk will explore the most successful patterns that have emerged with an attempt to make these strategies for change more direct and actionable.

About the Speaker:

Andrew Clay Shafer was devopsing before devops was a word.

He is often referenced as a foundational voice in the devops movement with a lot of experience and perspective contributing to open source, operating services and building communities.

As a co-founder of Puppet Labs, he had the privilege to watch the internal workings of many organizations who built the big web. Working on OpenStack and Cloud Foundry, he gained a greater appreciation for the challenges of enterprise IT.

He’s a life long learner who hopes he can help others learn too.
