One For All & All For GitLab: How IT Became Delta’s Differentiator
Limited Capacity seats available

For 95-year-old Delta airlines, migrating to a brave new digital world of cloud native tech is how the organization plans to enable scalability and technical flexibility. Why? Because Delta sees IT as a key differentiator as travelers continue to shift online and focus on digital offerings and ease.

This presentation will provide insight into Delta journeys from running applications on VMs to the rapid expansion of their on-prem cloud platform as well as their public cloud platform. Jasmine James (IT Manager and head of Delta’s DevOps Center of Excellence) and Chris Bolton (Senior Engineer and impetus behind Delta’s forthcoming Cloud Native Center of Excellence) will share not only the vision but also the nitty gritty details of how Delta is making this strategic move.

GovLab: GitLab in the Federal Government
Limited Capacity seats available

Every day, the federal government tackles some of the most difficult challenges that we face as a society. From defending the country itself to ensuring law enforcement's ability to protect citizens. Inevitability, at the core of all of these challenges, is code. In this talk, Solomon will take a brief look into how the federal government tackles these challenges on a daily basis including how it's evolving: how it contributes to and develops open-source, how it utilizes Innersource within and across individual agencies, and of course, how Gitlab sits at the middle of all of this.

Genworth’s Journey to DevOps
Limited Capacity seats available

Genworth’s journey began 6 years ago, with a search for an on-premises solution for Git. Initially starting with using Gitlab as a repository for code, but like a boiling pot, the developers began integrating more and more of our development process with Gitlab and out of the spaghetti pile of dev tools we were using. This started with just a handful of teams at Genworth, fast-forward to today, the entire organization is flocking to Gitlab.

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.
