DevOpsSec Lessons Learned From Toyota To Deming
This year, software development teams around the world are consuming BILLIONS of open source and third-party components. The good news: they are accelerating time to market. The bad news: 1 in 17 components they are using include known security vulnerabilities. Ugh. 

This session aims to enlighten DevOps teams, security and development professionals by sharing results from the 2016 State of the Software Supply Chain Report -- a blend of public and proprietary data with expert research and analysis. Attendees in this session will learn: 

- What our analysis of 25,000 applications reveals about the quality and security of software built with open source components 

- How organizations like Mayo Clinic, Exxon, Capital One, the U.S. FDA and Intuit are utilizing the DevOps principles of software supply chain automation 

- Why avoiding open source components 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 and development teams.

Urban Legends: What You Code Makes You Who You Are

If you were a carpenter, would your skills at building be more important than the tools you use to build? Skills, right? Tools are just a means to an end. So why do developers think the language they use defines the problems they solve?

This talk will take a look at misconceptions across the board, some experiences, both positive and negative, people have had crossing barriers to new languages, and show some of the benefits thinking of one’s self as a coder and not a “Ruby coder” or a “PHP dev” can have on being a better problem solver.

[IGNITE] Real Heroes Draw Pictures

On my journey into DevOps, I have fully embraced the power of pictures. Pictures help describe how we work, how our work flows, and what’s actually flowing where. You see, in DevOps empathy and collaboration are core requirements for success. When placing a picture at the center of the conversation, the discussion is not about people and who screwed up…it’s about a system that works great or needs improvement.

Last year, we jump-started thousands of DevOps journeys. And we validated many more. We did this by publishing 31 DevOps and Continuous Delivery reference architectures. These reference sheets have now been viewed more than 92,000 times. Some are simple, some complex. But all from the real world.

In our pictures, we offered practitioners a glimpse into patterns, flows, and decisions that others were making to help them improve their own work. The pictures revealed work on premises, in the cloud, and the use of open source applications. They revealed good decisions, bad decisions, and confirmations of work already done. But more importantly, they were helpful.

Join me to learn how pictures have become one of the most popular reference and empathy tools used across the DevOps community.

[IGNITE] Organize to Optimize

Implementing DevOps in a small organization or single department is one thing. Applying these ideas in a large organization takes a lot more effort! At Belk, we’ve been on a 2- to 3-year journey to improve the software development life cycle. Our “war stories” will provide the backdrop for key lessons learned along the way. By structuring teams differently, and optimizing how they work, the same number of people accomplish far more together. Optimizing repetitive tasks frees people so they can focus on the really interesting and creative stuff. I will also show how silos profoundly influence system architecture and how to address that. Lastly, the session will describe a pattern for introducing organizational change, taking these practices beyond a small grass roots effort.

[IGNITE] The Art of The Laptop Cluster

When Docker burst on the scene in 2013, one promise that excited both developers and operations people alike was the idea that a dev would create a container on her laptop that could then be shipped right up to production. Three years later, most people have realized that it may not be that simple.

In a world where we are building microservices and distributed systems, how can you ensure that the laptop you are typing at now is a step towards production-ready software and not a distraction from it? Let’s get deep down and dirty into the art of constructing useful clusters on our primary development/operations control machines and the challenges we face in the process.

[IGNITE] Continuous Delivery Made Simple - The LinkedIn experience
I was part of LinkedIn's engineering team from 2009-2013. In that period, I saw LinkedIn transform from a slow moving organization perpetually behind schedule to a team hyper focused on continuously delivering value to their customers. Many factors made this change possible, but one of the simplest and most elegant was the mandate that every new feature be wrapped in an if-else statement. In this talk I'll share my love for this basic idea and tell the story of how it changed an engineering culture.

AppSec in a DevOps World

Development teams were already struggling with adding security to their Agile development processes. But now, DevOps teams are pushing to release continuously, meaning integrating security will become even more of a challenge. With DevOps, teams will be expected to produce code faster and more often. Yet in order for DevOps to be successful, teams can’t just deliver functional code – they must deliver secure code. How can DevOps teams add security to DevOps without losing velocity? In this session, Peter Chestna, Director of Developer Engagement, describes the pressures on DevOps teams. He will then practical strategies to integrate security successfully into DevOps.

What you will learn: 1. Why application security (AppSec) is important 2. How DevOps is changing application development 3. How AppSec is traditionally done 4. What needs to change in order to stay relevant including things to measure as leading indicators of success

SRE: Lessons Learned from a Parallel Universe
Just within the last ten years (+-3), we have seen at least two separate communities evolve from the generic idea of Systems Administration/Operations. The first, DevOps, grew up very much in public, the second happened more within the halls of “special” companies like Google and Facebook and is only now starting to gain visibility and traction in the wider world. They have a number of priorities in common but also diverge in some very interesting ways. In this talk we’ll explore the key things we can learn from each group and see what might happen if we cross the streams.

Talking to People: The Forgotten DevOps Tool

As we focus on how to how to best use JIRA, Hipchat, Slack, project management products, incident and defect tracking solutions, and a myriad of other software tools as a part of our development and delivery environment, we often lose sight of the most fundamental and powerful tool available – talking to people, to our team members, management, users, and other stakeholders.

Rather than burying ourselves in tools and devices, software and search engines, we can do more for our overall application quality and delivery processes by simply talking to the people around us. While a focus on software may produce more data, knowing the thoughts, expectations, and ideas of the stakeholders will result in more innovative ideas as well as a filter for determining optimal solutions.

Using the research of MIT researcher Sherry Turkle and others, this presentation uses the power of conversation to illustrate how we can improve our testing practices and results, for the good of all stakeholders. It illustrates how our conversations can be more powerful and directed than any software tool in determining and delivering on application quality and performance. Last, it examines the role of ChatOps tools in supplementing conversation with actionable ideas and automated responses to be a true real time response environment.

[IGNITE] Patterns and Antipatterns in Docker Image Lifecycle
While Docker has enabled an unprecedented velocity of software production, it is all too easy to spin out of control. A promotion-based model is required to control and track the flow of Docker images as much as it is required for a traditional software development lifecycle. New tools often introduce new paradigms. We will examine the patterns and the antipatterns for Docker image management, and what impact the new tools have on the battle-proven paradigms of the software development lifecycle.

[IGNITE] Measuring DevOps To Provide Objective Continuous Improvement In Your Organization

Devops has brought about unprecedented changes in the way that organizations are solving problems and breaking down silos. They are empowering their employees to automate expensive processes and leverage the power of cross-functional teams to the benefit of development and operations culture. Devops is helping to bridge a culture gap and focuses on providing shorter feedback loops and more responsiveness to failure.

But what if we are missing something else here? Do we really know how much all of these process and automation improvements cost? Do we really know if we are improving our products, processes, organizations and devops as a whole?

In this talk, you will be asked about the entire delivery stream and how you map it. In addition, you will see why we need to know that we are providing more value, can make good decisions based on risk and are actually improving the quality of our systems. You will see how we should do this and why it will be great for the continuous improvement of devops!
