"Josh Evans talks about the chaotic and vibrant world of microservices at Netflix. He starts with the basics- the anatomy of a microservice, the challenges around distributed systems, and the benefits. Then he builds on that foundation exploring the cultural, architectural, and operational methods that lead to microservice mastery."
"Impact Mapping is a lightweight method for strategic planning in product and project development. Although seemingly simple and intuitive, many teams fail to get the most out of it because they jump to conclusions too quickly and skip over important discussions. Gojko will talk about how to avoid common pitfalls and present two innovation games that can help you facilitate impact mapping easily, support innovative ideas and divergent thinking, and help your teams and clients make a big impact through software delivery."
"Gartner estimates that during the next few years, 50% of all of enterprise IT organisations will have hybrid half-cloud half-on-premise deployment, and that by 2019 30% of the software will be cloud-only. For software quality, of course, this creates a challenge. Companies no longer control all the hardware or the data. There are many more assumptions in play. The industry is moving away from expensive kits that rarely break, to virtualised improvised magicked-up systems running on commodity hardware and likely to blow up at any time. This completely changes the risk profile for software architectures and tests. Gojko Adzic will help you navigate this swamp and create a winning testing strategy for cloud deployments."
"Distributed databases and open source analytics technologies are becoming an important part of many big data strategies. Attend this session to learn how Azure Cosmos DB and Azure HDInsight enable massive-scale ingestion of events and real-time queries for IoT scenarios. Come learn about the business goals and technical challenges faced by real-world customers (like Toyota Service Connect), why they chose Azure Cosmos DB + HDInsight, and the patterns they used to deliver highly available, globally distributed experiences."
"The book Enterprise Integration Patterns, published some 14 years ago, has become the common language for most open source ESBs. Still, integration is much more than just messaging, so there are bound to be many more integration patterns. The second volume of EIP will contain conversation patterns that describe interactions between systems over time. This talk reflects on EIP and gives a behind-the-scenes look at how this new pattern language evolves."
"Technical Debt has become a catch-all phrase for any code that needs to be re-worked. Much like Refactoring has become a catch-all phrase for any activity that involves changing code.
These fundamental misunderstandings and comfortable yet mis-applied metaphors have resulted in a plethora of poor decisions. What is technical debt? What is not technical debt? Why should we care? What is the cost of misunderstanding? What do we do about it? Doc discusses the origins of the metaphor, what it means today, and how we properly identify and manage technical debt."
