X Topic Abstract

DevOps is one of the biggest topics floating around the IT world today. Unfortunately, many companies believe that they can implement DevOps in their company by just buying software and tools. This talk will cover why that isn't the case and why you need to look at DevOps in your company as a cultural change, not just a tooling change.

Speaker Profile

Eujon is a true "jack of all trades" given the vast experience he's developed during his professional career across various applications, programming languages and cloud service technologies. While Eujon has architected multi-cloud solutions for the enterprise, he is just as comfortable writing code for high performance applications. He has a long history with Linux and is a frequent open source contributor. Eujon is a big proponent of DevOps, carrying real world experience with many of the tools supporting that philosophy.

X Topic Abstract

The "deploy moment" is an occasion that still gives many developers the shivers. But it shouldn’t be this way (at least not every time). Luckily enough, we have tools and processes today that enable us to turn the deploy moment into an usual activity. Gone where the days when we had to automate everything by hand. Today we have Kubernetes and OpenShift to automate out-of-box many different scenarios.

Come and join this live demo session with lots of different deployment scenarios: from basic to advanced. We'll cover the basic deployment concepts and then we'll dig into demoing how can we use open source tools like Kubernetes and OpenShift to master the deployment art.

X Topic Abstract

Many of us feel like we never have enough time to fully test in a given sprint, cycle or other timeframe. Add to it the concept of DevOps and it could be overwhelming. We plan for the best case scenario, but, undoubtedly, something happens with our best-laid plans that cause us to feel like we “just didn’t test enough.” In this session, we will talk about the five areas that may be causing inefficiencies in your overall approach.

Session Takeaways:
- Melissa will discuss these five areas and you’ll have a chance to share yours.
- The outcome to be practical solutions that can be implemented quickly.
- Once we have the plan to reduce or eliminate the inefficiencies, we'll talk about areas you may be able to spend more time in or add to your overall testing strategy – effectively adding more time to do what you do best!
