Dr. Nicole Forsgren, Research and Strategy, Google Cloud

Dr. Nicole Forsgren brings you the latest in what it takes to be an elite performer with highlights from DORA’s 2019 Accelerate State of DevOps Report. This year’s study helps you answer these questions: What does it take to be a high performer? (And by the way – the latest data shows super interesting shifts in the industry, confirming analyst reports that DevOps has “crossed the chasm.”) This year, we also dig into not just performance but also productivity, and show that smart investments in tools, information search, and reducing technical debt can help support productivity — which can lead to improved work/life balance and reductions in burnout. Come tune in for this and so much more!

The Challenges of Scaling DevSecOps
Shiri Ivtsan, Senior Product Manager, WhiteSource

Organizations enjoy the speed DevOps brings to development and delivery. However, most security and compliance monitoring tools have not been able to keep up, becoming the most significant barrier to continuous delivery. Now some good news: You can easily integrate security into your existing processes to solve this challenge. In this session, Shiri Ivtsan, senior product manager at WhiteSource, will discuss:

  • Leveraging the DevSecOps approach to help speed up security
  • Scaling security into your agile processes
  • Five easy ways to start driving DevSecOps in your organization
11:30 - 12:00pm - DevOps Wars: Winning Strategies From the BattlefieldJulio Villarreal Pelegrino, Chief Architect, Cloud & Infrastructure, Red Hat

DevOps Wars: Winning Strategies From the Battlefield
Julio Villarreal Pelegrino, Chief Architect, Cloud & Infrastructure, Red Hat

Over the years, the IT landscape has evolved considerably impacting the way businesses run and deliver services. Today, the evolution continues, and new practices such as DevOps are a crucial component of the digital transformation process.

In this session, we will discuss real-life use cases from the trenches that showcase what to do and what to avoid when adopting DevOps process. We will provide examples from our customers that demonstrate how using the right methodologies, culture shifts and tools could positively impact your business while fostering collaboration and innovation.

11:30 - 12:00pm - How to Defend an Application with AccuracyErik Costlow, Developer Relations, Contrast Security

How to Defend an Application with Accuracy
Erik Costlow, Developer Relations, Contrast Security

The most effective way to defend an application is to focus on what it actually does. For example if an application doesn’t use SQL, it won’t be vulnerable to SQL Injection. Tools such as the free Contrast Community Edition enable teams to watch running code and observe what this code actually does, focusing time and effort on the things that matter. In addition to accuracy, this improves performance because the defenders have contextual information that can be used for defense. In essence this moves defense up from Layer 7, watching data over the network, into a more modern Layer 8 of how the application actually uses the data.

12:00 - 12:30pm - Keynote: Turn Human Capital into High Performance Organizational Capital- John Willis, CEO & Founder, Botchagalupe Technologies

Keynote: Turn Human Capital into High Performance Organizational Capital
John Willis, CEO & Founder, Botchagalupe Technologies

In this insightful presentation from the one and only Botchagalupe, John Willis, we look at how today’s CXOs facing digital transformation, DevOps, Agile, Lean and more feel like they are in a box, but blind and unable to know which way to go. How do they navigate the minefield to transform their organization into a high performance organization?

John revisits a topic he has explored a few years back but with a new perspective, having spoken with numerous large financial, healthcare and manufacturing organizations. It is a recipe for success, understanding who your real competitors are, what you need to do to win and how to attract and retain top level talent. It is vintage Batchagalupe at his best. You can’t miss it.

Infrastructure as Code – Yes, It Applies to z/OS As Well!
Rosalind Radcliffe, Distinguished Engineer, Chief Architect for DevOps for Enterprise Systems, IBM

Your organization is successfully transforming to DevOps but part of the environment seems to be slowing everything down. The back end mainframe systems continue to take longer to change, and have limited ability to innovate and experiment. What if you could use the same practices and even many of the same open source tools to apply the same dynamic environment practices to the mainframe?

This session will show how it is possible to use the same open source tools to build a pipeline for z/OS including dynamic provisioning of resources, isolated testing environments and production deployment.

Infrastructure as Code is a method to provision and manage IT infrastructure through the use of code, rather than through standard operating procedures and manual processes. Done correctly, it can help avoid cloud deployment inconsistencies, increase developer productivity and lower costs. Join us to see infrastructure as code practices applied to the mainframe environment and learn how the transformation is automated for speed and consistency.

1:00 - 1:30pm - Shifting Left, Integration & Automation: Achieving DevOps Velocity Without Sacrificing SecurityChris Miller, Principal Security Program Manager, Veracode

Shifting Left, Integration & Automation: Achieving DevOps Velocity Without Sacrificing Security
Chris Miller, Principal Security Program Manager, Veracode

Is security at odds with your DevOps methodology? Does ‘skipping’ security in your development cycle introduce unacceptable risk for the business? Fear not. Join Chris Miller, principal security program manager at Veracode, to discuss tactics you can employ to seamlessly integrate application security into your DevOps practice to transform it into an effective and efficient DevSecOps practice.

1:30 - 2:00pm - How to leverage Config as Code and GitOps with Feature FlagsErez Rusovsky, Director of Product Management, CloudBees

How to leverage Config as Code and GitOps with Feature Flags
Erez Rusovsky, Director of Product Management, CloudBees

Are feature flags an integrated part of your change management practice? Or are they rogue changes in the production environment that have you crossing your fingers and your operations and security counterparts wincing? In this session you’ll learn how to de-risk your production deployments with the use of feature flags by adding the power of configuration-as-code and GitOps.

  • Understand the value of an enterprise feature flag management solution\
  • Maintain the same accountability, governance and traceability as the rest of the code in the change management process
  • Integrate with the SCM and automatically update your Github repo when your feature flags change
  • Use GitOps to roll back feature changes, clone feature configuration between environments and coordinate with existing change management approval processes
1:30 - 2:00pm - Operationalizing DevSecOps: Best Practices for Cloud Native ApplicationsKeith Mokris, Product Marketing Manager, Palo Alto Networks

Operationalizing DevSecOps: Best Practices for Cloud Native Applications
Keith Mokris, Product Marketing Manager, Palo Alto Networks

Organizations are leveraging the tools and practices to build and deploy cloud native apps faster than ever before. As developers and DevOps teams embrace new technologies such as containers to deliver software quickly, security can be challenged to keep up with the frenetic pace of modern CI/CD workflows.
Modern enterprises, which build and deploy weekly or daily, can easily have 10s of thousands of container images spread across multiple registries and production environments—creating security challenges at tremendous scale. Enter DevSecOps!
This talk will highlight:

  • Key steps to enable DevSecOps at the build, when you deploy, and at runtime
  • The need to implement proper tooling around image trust and compliance
  • Success stories from organizations doing DevSecOps right
2:00 - 2:30pm - Keynote: Engineering the Digital TransformationGary Gruver, President, Gruver Consulting

Keynote: Engineering the Digital Transformation
Gary Gruver, President, Gruver Consulting

“Engineering the Digital Transformation” provides systematic approaches for improving how software is developed for a broad range of applications. It is an introduction to Gary Gruver’s latest book. Unlike most books in the industry, which concentrate on providing a variety of different practices that work for software, this book will focus on high-level principles for engineering improvements. These principles are based on what has been proven to work well in manufacturing but will be modified to address software’s unique characteristics and capabilities.

2:30 - 3:00pm - Mixing compliance & risk management with DevOpsJeff Keyes, Director of Product Marketing, Plutora

Mixing compliance & risk management with DevOps
Jeff Keyes, Director of Product Marketing, Plutora

Agile, DevOps and the rise of product-oriented teams have dramatically changed the landscape of how software is developed. Controlling cultures, risk management and compliance create the largest friction slowing down the adoption of these practices. Tools and practices exist now that enable the cultural and technical shift in DevOps to not only adopt compliance and risk management but improve on their legacy implementations.

2:30 - 3:00pm - Lessons Learned in Nine Years: Building a Cloud-Native AppStefan Zier, Chief Architect, Sumo Logic

3:00 - 3:30pm - Accelerate Your Digital TransformationJohn Jeremiah, IT & Software Marketing Leader, Evangelist and TEDx speaker, GitLab

Accelerate Your Digital Transformation
John Jeremiah, IT & Software Marketing Leader, Evangelist and TEDx speaker, GitLab

Business velocity in the digital economy determines the winners. The faster your software teams can work, the faster you can compete. But, the hardest parts of delivering software is keeping the teams aligned and focused. Teams waste time waiting for inputs, fixing mistakes, shifting from one tool to another, waiting for infrastructure, and maintaining toolchains; all creating friction and slowing business innovation. It doesn’t have to be slow, learn how to accelerate your software delivery and win in the digital economy.

  • Enable effective collaboration to reduce friction
  • Reduce the barriers between teams to increase velocity without sacrifice
  • Evolve toward containers and Kubernetes enable faster cycle time.
  • Adopt a “minimum viable change” mindset to accelerate delivery
3:00 - 3:30pm - How to ‘Shift-left’ Security and Automate Container Security Into Your CI/CD PipelineFei Huang, CEO and Co-Founder, NeuVector

How to ‘Shift-left’ Security and Automate Container Security Into Your CI/CD Pipeline
Fei Huang, CEO and Co-Founder, NeuVector

DevOps teams are being asked to integrate security into the pipeline, to ‘shift-left’ security. This is critical because as more container-based applications move down the CI/CD pipeline into production, the risk of damaging attacks and data breaches increases. Join NeuVector in this session to explore the attack surface in a pipeline and to learn how to integrate and automate container security, from Vulnerability Management to Run-Time Protection.

3:30 - 4:00pm - DevOps Quality Metrics That Matter: Forrester Research FindingsWayne Ariola, CMO, Tricentis

DevOps Quality Metrics That Matter: Forrester Research Findings
Wayne Ariola, CMO, Tricentis

With DevOps, almost every aspect of application delivery has been put under the microscope and re-evaluated. Quality metrics have largely escaped that scrutiny…until now. Tricentis recently commissioned Forrester to research how 75 quality metrics are used and valued among 603 DevOps leaders and laggards. The goal: provide the software testing community an objective perspective on which quality metrics matter most for DevOps success.

In this session, we’ll take a deep dive into the findings, answering questions such as:

  • In the context of DevOps, do the “popular” quality metrics like number of automated tests, test case coverage, and pass/fail rate really matter?
  • Which metrics are best suited for ensuring that continuous updates won’t undermine the very user experiences you’re working so hard to enhance?
  • How do your team’s quality metrics rank? Are you taking advantage of the ‘hidden gems’ or getting caught up in vanity metrics?
3:30 - 4:00pm - Defining the DevOps LandscapeTracy Ragan, CEO, DeployHub

Defining the DevOps Landscape
Tracy Ragan, CEO, DeployHub

DevOps was born from continuous integration (CI).  From CI we evolved to continuous delivery (CD) which has been a driving force in the DevOps market. CD has created a landscape of tools that automate all pieces of the DevOps process from builds to deploy and everything in between. This session will help define the different players in the CD landscape and where they fit in the overall DevOps market.

4:00 - 4:30pm - Couples Therapy for DevOps and ITILJayne Groll, Co-founder & CEO, DevOps Institute

Couples Therapy for DevOps and ITIL
Jayne Groll, Co-founder & CEO, DevOps Institute

As Agile and DevOps speed ahead with automated releases, smaller changes and less self-organizing teams, the traditional approach of ITSM may appear to be outdated. This can lead to conflicts between the various camps of followers. This session explores the genesis of the disconnect between DevOps and ITSM and offers suggestions for aligning service management practices to DevOps.

4:00 - 4:30pm - DevOps GOLD: A Model for Enterprise DevOps AdoptionJP Morgenthal

DevOps GOLD: A Model for Enterprise DevOps Adoption
JP Morgenthal

Businesses are having difficulty adopting and scaling DevOps because it’s a multi-layered, human-centric, technology-enabled endeavor that is instead approached through a singular-layer, technology-centric lens. Moreover, the layers are not clearly defined in a way that enables businesses to design an effective strategy given their current skill makeup and organization configuration.

DevOps GOLD provides a systematic framework for thinking through the various drivers of successful DevOps implementations. It recognizes DevOps adoption is comprised of multiple layers containing tasks/outcomes that can happen in serial or parallel. GOLD also recognizes DevOps adoption must be considered through multiple lenses within the organization, each with its own incentives for success.

Keep Ops and Dev on The Same Page with AIOpsKeep Ops and Dev on The Same Page with AIOps
Peter Luff, Sr. Director, Partner Marketing, ScienceLogic
John Willsey, Principal Solutions Architect, ScienceLogic

DevOps teams can sometimes get separated as development effort runs ahead of the ability of operations to keep pace. The new AIOps movement offers great promise for keeping both on the same page by giving developers and operations teams the tools to quickly identify where applications can be tripped by infrastructure issues. We will identify and demonstrate a set of use cases to illustrate how both can work together to improve application availability and reduce outage risks.

5:00 - 5:30pm - DevOps Experience: DevOps As A Transformation Strategy – Mitch Ashley, Director, Research Analysis on DevOps, Cybersecurity, Networking, IT, IoT, Cloud

DevOps Experience: DevOps As A Transformation Strategy
Mitch Ashley, Director, Research Analysis on DevOps, Cybersecurity, Networking, IT, IoT, Cloud

As digital transformation drives the creation of new business strategies and models, so goes DevOps’ impact on how organizations create, deploy, and manage software. The value and benefits of DevOps can reach far beyond development teams and IT organizations. That requires alignment, measurement, and results, which bring actionable benefits to the business. In this talk, Mitch discusses strategies IT and development teams can use to realize tangible business benefits, meaningful to c-level leaders.

5:00 - 5:30pm - DevOps Patterns and Antipatterns for Continuous Software Updates - Baruch Sadogursky, Head of Developer Advocacy, Stephen Chin, Senior Director of Developer Relations, JFrog

Baruch Sadogursky
Head of Developer Advocacy, JFrog
Stephen Chin
Senior Director of Developer Relations, JFrog

So, you want to update the software for your user, be it the nodes in your K8s cluster, a browser on user’s desktop, an app in user’s smartphone or even a user’s car. What can possibly go wrong?

In this talk, we’ll analyze real-world software update fails and how multiple DevOps patterns, that fit a variety of scenarios, could have saved the developers. Manually making sure that everything works before sending an update and expecting the user to do acceptance tests before they update is most definitely not on the list of such patterns.

Join us for some awesome and scary continuous update horror stories and some obvious (and some not so obvious) proven ideas for improvement and best practices you can start following tomorrow.
