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.

How Good Is Our Code?
Cloud native computing is defined as containerization, microservices, and orchestration but what is the most important component? In this talk, Dan looks at how continuous integration (CI) is the component of cloud-native computing that generates the most value. Through a look at SQLite and the Cloud Native Interactive Landscape, Dan investigates how CI is essential for delivering secure software.

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!

Being Budget Conscious in a Continuously Automated World
Limited Capacity seats available

Do you currently, or want to, automate your deployments into the public cloud? Do you have budgetary concerns that make you not want to allow for unfiltered deployments? Then this is the session for you! In this talk, Tim will explain how to automate budget checks into the CI/CD process so that you never deploy out into an account that is overbudget. He'll be using GitLab, CloudHealth, Python, Docker, and Kubernetes for this exercise, but he will also talk about how this can be done in just about any tool set! Come by and have a listen to find out.

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.

  • Cloud native applications are coming to life faster than anyone could have imagined. The explosion of microservices empowers developers while also making it increasingly difficult to build pipelines that validate changes outside of their (or their SREs') control. Chaos engineering has emerged as a way to introduce faults into systems to increase their resilienc
