Lessons Learned - Continuous Deployment with Docker
Most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes a lot of work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reduction in cost and increase in speed. In this talk, Stefana Muller will share the journey her engineering team took to continuously deploy their containerized application over the past year. Highlighting the pitfalls and lessons learned so that you too can adopt these best practices to app deployment. If you are working to adopt containers or find yourself patching together script after script to automate your deployment pipeline, this talk is for you.

OPEN Talk: Building a Culture of Collaboration
Building a strong culture is critical to the success of any organization. Positive cultures that have taken years to build can quickly become negative cultures in a matter of months. Many people are afraid that their peers or managers will judge them for speaking up. How can you as an individual contributor or manager help ensure your team and organization are building not only quality products but building a strong culture of collaboration? In this session, Justin Collier discusses the challenges that many teams face and how to overcome them. Justin talks about software quality, swaying the naysayers and the benefits of collaboration. Join Justin for a candid conversation about what works and what does not, including: - Negativity and the impact it has - What it takes to create a software quality culture and owning the process - Tools that assist with collaboration - How to overcome objections

OPEN Talk: 'What Would You Say...You Do Here?': Measuring Success as an Engineering Manager
Have you ever been asked what you do as an engineering manager? Have you ever wondered it yourself?

Moving from developer to manager can lead to a sense of loss of productivity. At the end of a week as a developer you could look back and say, "Look at all the things I accomplished this week". As a manager, it's too easy to say, "Look at all the things my team accomplished this week, but what did I do?"

I believe that there are two simple areas that engineering managers can focus to measure their success, frame their activities, and regain their sense of productivity. In this talk, I'll discuss these areas (results and retention), some of the activities that encompass a typical manager's day (1:1s, parleying with areas of the business competing for your team, recruiting, etc.), and the path to management.

If you're a developer interested in management or a manager struggling to articulate what value you bring to the table, then this talk is designed for you!

DevOps and ChatOps in the Enterprise
Collaboration, shared visibility, and accelerating feedback loops are key tenants of DevOps. ChatOps embodies all of these – and is quickly becoming the new strategy to help ensure your DevOps transformation is successful. With “conversation-driven” development and operations, ChatOps helps accelerate application releases, shift-left testing, monitoring and diagnosing, and can even be used for self-healing of Production failures. In this session, we will share how you can easily integrate open source ChatOps integrations (Hubot) with a free DevOps Automation tool (ElectricFlow) and Docker, to orchestrate your entire delivery pipeline and enable on-demand automatic deployments, environment provisioning, on-going monitoring, troubleshooting, and more. We will share our architecture, tips and best practices, as well as integrations with common data sources and point tools – including defect tools, SCM, CI, Test automation, environment monitoring and management, reporting and graphing tools, etc.

CANCELLED - OPEN Talk: How To Build A Chat Infrastructure
In-app chat builds strong communities and makes real-time communication a core feature in your mobile app. But how do you build a responsive, scalable chat infrastructure? A reliable chat solution is more than merely multiplying nodes or adding resources ad hoc. Developers must leverage several key components to make chat work without fail. This talk will examine several major challenges when building an in-app chat infrastructure, including: - Low latency message delivery (on the order of milliseconds) to be considered real time - Guaranteed message delivery - High Concurrency - support millions of chat connections simultaneously - High volume traffic spikes (burst): The user presence, online/offline status, can be very difficult to scale during peak traffic. The traffic spike isn’t necessarily caused by users sending messages, but often a result of a massive amount of active app users presence status updates as cycling through constant connection and disconnection or connection retries, which could put up significant traffic and consume notable resources. - Broad Platform support (iOS, Android, Web) - Network optimization: Optimized protocol by reducing message relay for reduced bandwidth data and processing resources consumption; Smart Heartbeat- Keep connection alive with less network consumption - Mobile device optimization: Reduced bandwidth data consumption; Lower battery consumption with efficient data usage - State and session consistency: Synchronous states and login sessions; Ensure synchronous messaging between devices for an individual users. Channels: Internet configurations, firewall; Smart Heartbeat- Dynamically adapt the frequency of packet relays based on environment - Failover recovery: Recover gracefully without message lost

Level Up your Agile
At this point everyone is implementing Agile in some fashion. We have seen gains, but the world has evolved and “old Agile” is not good enough. We need to push the envelope further. The Agile Manifesto was created over 15 years ago. Most of the focus in the Agile/Scrum world since then has been to improve product delivery. In that time, we have improved idea development in the following ways: increased visibility, team continuous improvement, predictability and faster time-to-market. Now it is time to level up our agility. In this highly interactive workshop, participants will explore how traditional practices like projects, budgeting, leadership directives, release cadence, etc. impede organizational agility. By the end of the workshop, new Agile Manifesto statements will be defined to guide participants forward. David will share key practices required to get you to the next level of agility, and attendees will leave with actionable items they can implement to take their organization beyond Agile adoption to full Agile transformation.

Hiring and Retaining the Right Engineers
This presentation was originally created to address portfolio company executives from the 18 top VCs in Silicon Valley that Swing is partnered with. They'd asked us to come up with an educational piece that would help young company executives understand the different strategies for recruiting and retaining the best in design and development talent. In this presentation, I will discuss the tradeoffs of each path to product, from hiring internally to using contractors, both nearshore and offshore. We'll talk about strategies and tactics for each of the avenues, and what we've seen work well, and otherwise. This is an objective lecture that presents the different situations that hit young companies, and, leveraging my/our experience with early stage companies, it highlights various solutions and approaches to these issues that all startups and growing companies inevitably face.

To Kill a Monolith - Authentication as a Microservice
Authentication is a core piece of many applications. It has traditionally been handled in a monolithic manner; However, the age of the monolith is over. Moving to microservices means applications now need to decouple authentication, user management and user data. To accomplish this, a portable identity model is required. Brian Pontarelli will discuss the advantages of a microservice architecture, the basics of authentication and authorization as a microservice, the most common pitfalls when deploying microservices, and JWT revocation to ensure you leave ready to take down the monolith. The goal is to allow developers to primarily focus on code and move away from infrastructure concerns.

One of the greatest challenges to developing an API is ensuring that your API lasts.
