How Delta Became Truly Cloud Native: Avoiding the Vendor-Lock
Delta has achieved a rarity in the industry: workflow portability. In this talk, Jasmine James, an engineering leader from Delta, will share how and why they moved to cloud native and their strategy in building the path to kubernetes. Dive in to understand Delta's push to modernize and go cloud native, and how containerization factored into the build. Other enterprise-level organizations may benefit from Jasmine’s insights on shifting the mental model when approaching technical decisions and her contrarian belief that companies need not be handcuffed by a cloud provider.

Implementing Open Source Culture at NASA
When frustrated by lack of adoption within NASA of modern application development tooling, Marshall's team of 4 set out to build a from-scratch, cloud-native PaaS specifically tuned to meet complex operational and regulatory requirements at NASA. In Sept 2018, their grant proposal was accepted to begin work on APPDAT, our platform based on GKE + GitLab. With GitLab's extended EE trial period during their prototype phase, Marshall's team demonstrated enormous value very quickly. They are now leading the effort to operate Agency workloads on GCP for the first time, migrating 100+ legacy Cold Fusion apps (using custom ADO templates), plans to migrate STI program and the 40TB of public research documents they manage. Learn how Marshall overcame the cultural and business challenges presented and how this team's work is all tying back to their primary goal: demonstrating the benefits of OSS and unified toolchains, bringing that culture back to NASA... and flying Kubernetes clusters to the Moon!

Closing the SDLC Loop - A Security Panel
Limited Capacity seats available

Every company is becoming a software company. Shipping code to production has to be faster and more secure, but many companies struggle to scale their current process to produce and deliver software. The SDLC is often misunderstood, and can become a great ally if used correctly. Security if left at the end of the process, creating disturbance and friction with engineering because it create a different timeline. Let's see how we can put all stakeholders on the same page, at the same level, to share a common goal of delivering secure software faster.

Picking up Speed: Logging & Stream Processing
Limited Capacity seats available

Logging and Data analysis are intrisincally tied. From an operational perspective, backend storage must be aligned in order to centralize the data. Traditional data analysis is not fast enough for modern needs. Pushing logs to aggregators for processing is time-consuming and slows the feedback loop. There are plenty of opportunities to improve data analysis time while the data is still in motion. In this presentation, Eduardo will discuss data processing patterns and how this new approach of Stream Processing on the Edge can be used for faster data availability and smaller feedback loops in distributed environments. The result? Systems that can evolve faster and data science teams are empowered to accurately understand what is happening inside their systems.

Running GitLab and GitLab CI in Kubernetes for the Enterprise
Limited Capacity seats available

Northwestern Mutual is running GitLab in a fully distributed model in Kubernetes. They've also deployed GitLab Runners in AWS to manage demand for capacity and cost. Securing pipelines has always been a top priority; however, keeping secrets protected in a multi-tenant environment is a constant challenge. They've seen the good, the bad, and the ugly over the cource of their journey from 2016 to today, long before any documentation or Helm Charts existed. Learn from Sean and Kyle as they share Northwestern Mutual's experiences on how to provide a scalable, highly available SCM for users and leverage Kubernetes effectively. In this talk, Sean and Kyle will cover converging dynamic secrets into a shared environment to keep pipelines secure while minimizing overhead management.

GitLab's Journey to Continuous Delivery
Limited Capacity seats available

This talk is about the practical realities of starting continuous deployments for legacy applications. GitLab releases every 22nd of the month to help their large, self-managed install base maintain consistency. However, as they are in the process of moving to Kubernetes, they are increasing the velocity of feature development (yay!) and that meant they needed the ability to deploy more regularly. Traditionally, talks and blog posts focus on adopting the latest Kubernetes-enabled, star-spangled CI/CD solution but Marin went the alternate route of pushing GitLab's existing legacy CI/CD system to the limit instead. This talk is the story of how Marin found success, both human and byte-sized.

Learn from an Engineering Manager at GitLab, as Marin jumps into not only why this migration is important but how to make it as effective and seamless as possible.

Automation and Iteration: How a small agency team takes advantage of Gitlab to test and deploy rapidly across environments by Cory Zibell
  • Through GitLab's powerful features and APIs, Cory has built custom tools and workflows that enables his small team to spin up projects and begin pushing code as soon as they get approval. Many agencies still operate in the "SFTP up from the master branch." In this talk, Cory will show how much time his team has saved by having a proper CI and Release setup and how other small teams can do the same.

GitLab Permissions As Code by Nicole Schultz & Mike Nick
  • In this session, Nicole and Mike will dive into the technical aspects of how Northwestern Mutual leveraged the GitLab API to achieve Permission as code, not to mention how other teams can do so too.

Cloud Native Spelunking: the value of GitLab and Platforms by Paul Burt
  • Paul invites you to recall those early days of the web, when folks would FTP somewhere and upload a few HTML files. Simple and easy. Now?
