Conference Kick-off and Keynote @ James Beswick

Event Kick-off and Keynote from James Beswick

10:00 - 10:50 AM Development

DevOps in a Serverless World @ Linda Nichols

Join Linda for a deep dive analysis and demo on how processes change when we’re developing cloud-native or “serverless” applications. Challenge your perspective on questions that come with migrating into a fully-hosted application and using the Function as a Service (FaaS) offerings and moving to a fully-hosted ecosystem; how do we maintain our best practices? Is it possible to keep our typical DevOps processes when most of our environment is abstracted away from us?

11:00 - 11:50 AM Security +

Building a PCI Environment using Serverless @ Micah Hodge

Join Micah for a step-by-step walkthrough of a multi-region AWS serverless application designed for PCI storage. This includes a review of the architecture and lessons learned as well as security and failover strategies.

12:00 - 1:00 PM

Lunch @ Event Location

Lunch and Networking.

1:00 - 1:50 PM Development

How to fail with Serverless @ Jeremy Daly

Join Jeremy to get an indepth understanding of dealing with failures in serverless applications while building resilient, highly-available systems. Jeremy will be dealing with topics such as lambda DLQs, retries, and throttling; event source mapping with Kinesis, SQS and DynamoDB streams; Step Functions, fallback methods etc. with the ability to apply these strategies to other cloud providers as well.

2:00 - 2:50 PM Development

Message Patterns that will make or break your app at scale @ Jeff Hollan

Jeff will share some lessons learned and best practices honed by customers running mission-critical serverless apps. Everything from ordered delivery, retries, pub/sub events like CloudEvents, and more. Review the top 4 messaging principles that every cloud-aware dev should know about, and understand how to pick one for a task. While the lessons learned are from major Microsoft customers, the concepts apply to every cloud provider, and discussion will include mapping patterns to service offerings.

3:00 - 3:50 PM Development

Thinking Asynchronously @ Eric Johnson

Join Eric for an extensive talk on thinking asynchronously and dealing with decision points such as evaluating what tasks require the client to wait versus what can be done after the fact. Eric will do a walkthrough of taking an existing translation application that is synchronous and modifying it to use asynchronous patterns using technologies like Amazon DynamoDB Streams and Amazon EventBridge.

10:00 - 10:20 AM Security +

Don't be SecureLess: @ Ben Ellerby

Come hear Ben share some best practices for keeping your Lambdas secure in areas such as temporary storage, the granularity of Lamba's, IAM policies, observability, API Gateway, and the OWASP Top Ten.

11:00 - 11:20 AM Development

Develop and Deploy Deep Learning Microservices @ Brendan and Karthik

In this session you will learn about the art of deploying deep learning services in production. Dive into the IBM Model Asset eXchange (MAX) and get an overview of how deep learning models (primarily implemented in TensorFlow and PyTorch) are best published as Docker Images on DockerHub, and are best prepared for deployment in local or cloud environments using Kubernetes or Docker.

11:30 - 11:50 AM Development

Managing Your Serverless Servers @ Amy Arambulo Negrette

Come hear Amy share some indepth practices and challenges when handling logic in serverless apps, managing timeout and memory limitations with services like AWS lambda or Google Cloud and leveraging runtime archives for standardizing deployments.

12:00 - 1:00 PM

Lunch @ Event Location

Lunch and Networking.

01:30 - 01:50 PM Development

The Serverless Mindset @ Danielle Heberling

Come hear Danielle about how we can attract and retain folks from non-traditional backgrounds in tech. And the mindset changes necessary from a developer workflow standpoint that applies to folks new to software engineering and seasoned software engineers just getting into serverless.

03:00 - 03:20 PM Development

Safe Lambda Deployments @ Sean Sullivan

This talk will focus on embracing the DevOps aspect of leveraging AWS Lambda and AWS CodeDeploy to enable developers to safely deploy new application code to production. We’ll also examine traffic shifting, traffic hooks, and YAML configurations

03:30 - 03:50 PM Security +

Continuous Verification In A Serverless World @ Leon Stigter

Join Leon as he shares the adoption of the serverless mindset when dealing with CI/CD and the importance of having integration and delivery pipelines. Leon will look at extending an existing CI/CD pipeline with checks for security, performance, and cost to make a decision on whether we want to deploy our app or not.

2:00 - 6:00 PM Workshop
