Transforming Training Delivery at Accenture with DevOps
Think DevOps is only applicable for software engineering? Wrong! Turns out that you can use many DevOps tools and concepts for pretty much anything delivery related. Still don't believe me? Then come hear how we used AWS and Jenkins to automate and significantly reduce the time involved in creating and provisioning server environments for a major training program at Accenutre. We also used Windows To Go to create portable pre-configured developer workstations that are used during the training, ensuring a consistent learning experience for participants. In addition, we leveraged JIRA and Kanban to develop training materials in an iterative way, significantly reducing the time to launch a new training course. We also used JIRA to manage the logistics involved in setting up and running our training sessions.

OPEN Breakfast Talk: The Future of Hiring and the End of Whiteboard Interviews
**Breakfast will be provided on a first come, first served basis until they run out. To receive a breakfast, pre-registration is required. Breakfast can be picked up starting at 8:45 am. The talk will start promptly at 9:00 am.

https://www.eventbrite.com/e/hackerrank-breakfast-learn-tickets-34993028089


Writing code on a whiteboard is a skill in and of itself. How does this awkward experience tell you anything meaningful about how well engineers can truly think and work in their element? Traditionally, developers have to spend hours upon hours going through technical whiteboard interviews. But it’s how engineers have always done it. It’s the industry standard. Today there’s a better way to evaluate skills. Companies are realizing that shifting toward skills-based hiring is the optimal way to get a leg up on competition. CTOs, VP of engineering and directors across industries, from finance to retail and even the government, are implementing skills-based hiring to save hundreds of hours of valuable engineering time.

OPEN TALK: Building an AI Assistant - Tales from the Trenches

In this session, we'll cover 10 lessons we had to learn - the hard way - by building a AI-powered assistant: Ozlo.

We've been working on Ozlo for over 3 years now. And, as the AI and conversational search landscape has grown over the last few years, we've evolved our thinking from the days of a blank search box. But, what does it take to build a truly compelling conversational search experience?
In this session, we'll cover a breadth of technical strategies that we consider to be the pillars of AI-powered bots:
- How "big" is "big data"? What does it take to ingest, resolve and reason about the 100s of millions of entities in the world?
- What NLP tools and techniques make the most sense to deploy in an environment where users are talking, not typing?
- What does a dialog system that fulfills the need for a fluid, back and forth, conversation with the user look like?
- How does such a system generate natural sounding, and grammatically correct responses back to the user?
- Finally, how do we measure all this to make sure the user is having a great experience with your product?

Server-Side JavaScript
Server-Side Javascript!

JS has become all the rage... with good reason! For years beforehand, incredibly passionate developers and the unstoppable spread of the Worldwide Web helped fuel myriad JavaScript projects, pushing the limits of the language and the environments in which it could be deployed. In 2009, Node.js ushered JavaScript beyond the confines of the browser and opened the floodgates for web developers to become full-stack application engineers. 

Now, if you know JavaScript, you know app development. Our talk will provide a tour of the features of the Node.js ecosystem and demo many associated technologies, showing you how to create working APIs quickly and efficiently.

DevOps and ChatOps in the Enterprise
Collaboration, shared visibility, and accelerating feedback loops are key tenants of DevOps.

ChatOps embodies all of these – and is quickly becoming the new strategy to help ensure your DevOps transformation is successful. With “conversation-driven” development and operations, ChatOps helps accelerate application releases, shift-left testing, monitoring and diagnosing, and can even be used for self-healing of Production failures.

In this session, we will share how you can easily integrate open source ChatOps integrations (Hubot) with a free DevOps Automation tool (ElectricFlow) and Docker, to orchestrate your entire delivery pipeline and enable on-demand automatic deployments, environment provisioning, on-going monitoring, troubleshooting, and more.

We will share our architecture, tips and best practices, as well as integrations with common data sources and point tools – including defect tools, SCM, CI, Test automation, environment monitoring and management, reporting and graphing tools, etc.

OPEN TALK: Engineering Civic Engagement - Full Stack Coding for a Cause
  • The story - how I got involved with my local community
  • How to wear every hat on a project
  • What I learned building a full-stack web application
              The barriers to enter a community service project are low; as a bootcamp graduate with nearly 1 year of full-time software development experience, I can confidently say that all developers, whether junior or quite senior, are qualified and able to make an impact on their local community.  The infrastructure and model for assistance for the private sector to help the public sector is well established in many cities.  For example, many cities have an initiative similar to San Francisco’s Civic Bridge Project; San Jose has the Silicon Valley Talent Partnership, Chicago has the Civic Consulting Alliance, and New York City has the Open Government Initiative, Tech Talent Pipeline, and .nyc.             
Partnering with the Civic Bridge Project allowed me to wear many hats and be more than just a developer – I was my own front-end, back-end, UX, QA, scrum master, team lead, and cheerleader.  I was responsible for translating the community’s pain points into actionable tech-driven deliverables, driving the project, and being wary of scope creep.  Advantages included being revered as a content expert, as opposed to someone junior, and I enjoyed receiving high praise for any work I did.  However, I faced challenges obtaining data from a slow-operating agency, working with outdated and siloed information, and navigating interpersonal politics with the client.             
My tech stack was JavaScript, jQuery, Python, Flask, Bootstrap, KML, and GoogleMaps JavaScript API.   The project was JavaScript-heavy, and constantly demonstrated the importance and use cases for binding, as well as when to take advantage of global variables and functional scope.

Mocking to Integrate - One More Step towards CD (Continuous Delivery)
Delivering value to the client as well as early and frequent feedback are at the heart of agile. Practices such as continuous integration and continuous delivery are key to reaching these objectives during software development.

The concept of continuous delivery can be understood as a set of automated steps that aim to take changes made during development to production as soon as possible, minimizing risks during implantation and guaranteeing the quality on each deployment. To deliver software in a continuous manner, development teams must be capable of, among other things, automating the execution of distinct sets of tests that verify the collaboration between various services.

In this talk, we will discuss existing patterns to test the interaction between services and how to enable the automation and repeatability of integration tests in different environments when our application depends on services that are developed and managed by external teams. Thus, bringing us a step closer to continuous delivery.

Accelerating DevOps with Assembly Lines
Software delivery has evolved in the past decade as organizations adopt a “DevOps mindset.” However, most organizations use a diverse and disconnected toolchain that has created “islands of automation” that are optimized for each silo, but do not provide visibility, auditability and traceability across the entire workflow.

Beyond the Code - The New Development Manager
Today, development managers find themselves at a unique nexus – with one hand in the code and one hand out of it. Their job is no longer simply about managing a group of dedicated coders. Instead, they’ve become evangelists, marketers, support systems, product managers, scrum leads, internal intermediaries, and much more.

As a wearer of many hats, the modern development manager is the liaison between the development team and the many other departments within their organization, from the top levels of management to the sales and marketing teams. As a result, managers are now tasked with helping to break down organizational silos to consistently produce the best results possible.
Acquia’s Preston So manages the Acquia Labs team, a tight-knit innovation team of coding polyglots. In addition, he is scrum lead and product owner for the API-first Drupal team within the Office of the CTO (OCTO).  So can speak to the way the role of the development manager is becoming more and more diversified and the three critical traits managers will need going forward.
  1. Development managers need to be knowledgeable about architecture. They need to have visibility into everything from big-picture architectural considerations at 30,000 feet to nuanced coding conventions limited to a single line of code or even a single character.
  2. Development managers need to be knowledgeable about their team, but not simply who they are, what they’re working on, and how they work. Increasingly, development managers need to know about their team’s disparate work habits and how they contribute to a successful project; how these personalities can synchronize and disperse to accelerate progress; and how distinct identities and convictions can beneficially lend themselves to a cohesive whole.
  3. Development managers need to be knowledgeable about the overarching process, because they remain the first line of defense for their teams. As outside methods infiltrate and merge with the development team’s process, the manager must maintain a strong understanding of the overall project and strategy.
How will development managers evolve to meet the needs of today’s stakeholders? Now, it’s time for development managers to move beyond the code to become the multifaceted managers our industry needs more than ever before.

OPEN TALK: Bridging the Gap Between Agile & DevOps with Tools & Processes
Software Services Lifecycle Management (SSLM) addresses the fragmented way Agile, DevOps and Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) initiatives are implemented in organizations. SSLM focuses on unifying the teams, processes, tools, challenges, and the siloed nature of how adoption services are delivered. SSLM promotes an integrated and comprehensive approach that supports the software goals of an organization. As Agile and DevOps reach further into the enterprise, SSLM establishes the need to look at how all tools and processes complement each other, and provides practical steps to create a unified services strategy.

cPrime will discuss the value of an SSLM strategy throughout the enterprise and share how companies are incorporating these approaches for their software needs.

Four Phases of an Open API Project Roadmap

The benefits of integrating API management into your business strategy are evident, but the process is easier said than done. An organization’s goals for the project are often vague. Perhaps they want to realize more revenue or reach new audiences. Such a large investment of time and resources warrants more definably articulated goals. Without that laser focus, you have nothing to measure or track progress against.

Another important factor for API success is user adoption. You can theorize as much as you want about the market opportunity for your API, but only actual usage data will help you better understand your user’s needs and help you craft an API strategy that is clearly aligned with those needs.

This session will discuss how using a simple and trusted approach can help you diligently determine the value of your API project as well as its addressable market. The audience will gain insight into four phases enterprises must go through in order to determine the value of their API project, including:

Phase 1: Pilot—Get to Know Your Users

Phase 2: Define your Open API Model

Phase 3: Configure the API Management Platform

Phase 4: Integrate

This session will answer questions regarding opening APIs to third party developers, such as:

  • Who will use it?
  • What are their needs and how can you refine your API accordingly?
  • How do you incorporate a revenue model?
  • What about managing the API?

CANCELED: Introverts Can Be Leaders Too
Are you tired of hearing “it’s not possible”? Maybe you’re more familiar with “it won’t work”. You may have gotten into the habit of saying it yourself as you review requirements and project plans. In a world where all we hope for is optimism, it surprises most people to learn that this sort of negative approach isn’t bad at all. It turns out that it’s the best thing for a project as long as framed the right way.

In this session, we’ll explain why and how to use this type of pushback from the tech experts and development teams to start your projects off right. We’ll work through the reasons why this type of thinking needs to be embraced in order to jumpstart projects the right way – by directly addressing the development hurdles that are wildly apparent to the tech team, but not to leadership.

The goal is to improve communication and understanding that a techie’s concerns are good for projects. Just as the strongest steel is forged by the hottest fires, the toughest questions can build the best project plans.

Continuous Deployment for Docker: Lessons Learned
Most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall.

As with most new architectures, this dream takes a lot of work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reduction in cost and increase in speed.

In this talk, Stefana Muller will share the journey her engineering team took to continuously deploy their containerized application over the past year. Highlighting the pitfalls and lessons learned so that you too can adopt these best practices to app deployment. If you are working to adopt containers or find yourself patching together script after script to automate your deployment pipeline, this talk is for you.

Project Management - from Stone Age to DevOps

The DevOps movement is gradually changing IT organisations. Project managers are often forgotten, but they also need to change. In order to do that, we need to understand the required changes on the delivery mindsets. I will cover in this talk the evolution on those mindsets from traditional plan-driven approach, passing through Agile and now with DevOps. This change in mindset will make the delivery to evolve, changing the role and functions of the classical project manager becoming a delivery enabler.

CANCELED: OPEN TALK: DevOps - Lessons Learned From Detroit To Deming
In 1982, the city of Detroit saw 15,000 vehicles roll of its production lines every day.  To achieve this goal, Detroit's line workers were being measured on velocity, often at the expense of quality.  At the same time, auto workers in Japan -- applying lessons from W. Edwards Deming -- were implementing new supply chain management practices which enabled them to manufacture higher quality vehicles, for less cost, at higher velocity.  As a result, from 1962 to 1982, the Detroit auto industry lost 20% of its domestic market to Japan.
The parallels between the auto industry of 35 years ago and software development practices in place today are remarkable.  DevOps teams around the world are consuming billions of open source components and containerized applications to improve productivity at a massive scale. The good news: they are accelerating time to market. The bad news: many of the components and containers they are using are fraught with defects including critical security vulnerabilities.
This session aims to enlighten DevOps teams, security and development professionals by sharing results from the 2017 State of the Software Supply Chain Report -- a blend of public and proprietary data with expert research and analysis. The presentation will also reveal findings from the 2017 DevSecOps Community survey where over 2,000 professionals shared their experiences blending DevOps and security practices together.  Throughout the discussion, I will share lessons that Deming employed decades ago to help us accelerate adoption of the right DevSecOps culture, practices, and measures today.
Attendees in this session will learn:
- What our analysis of 60,000 applications reveals about the quality and security of software built with open source components
- How organizations like PayPal, Intuit, Fannie Mae and the Department of Defense are utilizing the DevOps principles of software supply chain automation
- Why avoiding open source components and containers over 3 years old might be a really good idea
- How to balance the need for speed with quality and security -- early in the development lifecycle
Attend this session and leverage the insights to understand how your organization's application DevOpsSec practices compare to others. We'll share the industry benchmarks to take back and discuss with your DevOps, development and security teams.

DevOps practices and tooling have become a core part of the Software Services Lifecycle Management (SSLM) space. DevOps solutions are tying together complex solutions including source code management, artifact management, continuous integration, delivery and deployment, static code analysis, security analysis, monitoring, infrastructure automation, and test automation to name a few.  In parallel, iterative based development approaches have increased the cadence of teams and the delivery of features and capabilities. 
With this significant investment of time, resources and money, providing a dashboard to share the real-time delivery of features and capabilities is becoming more prevalent and important in the minds of executives, directors, managers and implementers. 
cPrime will discuss the current trends and provide examples of DevOps dashboarding using OSS and third party solutions.

Writing code for the past fifteen years we have seen a constant evolution in technology, and what we believed were best practices in code, culture, and methodology then, is not the same as it is today, and won’t be the same in 5 years from now. When you want to culturally shift your organization to prepare for rapid growth, how do you move away from a decade and a half of practices that have been codified? How do you build faster, with better quality, how do you allow for more teams to contribute to your product? How do you move away from a monolith? How do you do all that and reduce costs? How do you prepare for the future? It’s Rainbows & Unicorns, which for us started as a tongue-in-cheek idea, but has evolved into an embedded cultural shift in how we organize ourselves, our code, and our engineering practices. This talk will walk us through the impetus for this change, how we started, how it has evolved, where are we today, and where we are headed.
