PRO TALK: How We Built a High Performing Engineering Organization by Hard Resetting Our Hiring & Onboarding Processes
Have you ever found yourself struggling to build an engineering organization that is quality-driven with consistently great results? When we analyzed why we didn't feel our organization was performing at the level we had anticipated, we reverse engineered this to fundamental issues with our culture. Once we started working on this it had a ripple effect to our hiring process & then our onboarding process as well. This talk will dive into how we refactored our hiring process - and were able to build an interview machine, and rebuilt our onboarding from the ground up, to set up new hires for success from day one - enabling us to onboard successfully 10 new hires monthly, without organizational drag. This ultimately delivered a well-oiled high performing engineering organization through a practically applicable methodology that is easily replicable. This not only enabled us to improve the quality of our hires, but also retain excellent talent in the long-term.

PRO TALK: Three Imperatives for Scaling Microservices: Lessons Learned at Capital One
Microservices architecture is being adopted across the industry. It accelerates delivery of business value and really enables agility to fast changing business environment. But scaling to a highly resilient microservices implementation requires focus on three things: 1. Reducing failure points within the microservice 2) Managing depedencies across a complex web of microservices 3) Tools and processes to reduce mean time to repair and mean time to detect. This also has huge implications on developer mindset, hiring, and training. 1. For failure point analysis, I will present a template for reducing risk of failure within the microservice. Discuss some of the best practices setting up service in a cloud environment. 2. Dependency analysis, I will talk about the architectural considerations like domain driven design, circuit breakers and timeouts, strategies for minimizing customer to reduce the impact of failure of hard dependencies. 3. Reducing mean time to detect and repair: I will discuss about the role of monitoring, how to organize in a 'you build you own environment', practices that helped to quickly recover in case of failure.I will also discuss cultural aspects and role of hiring and training.

OPEN TALK: Robots as a Platform
In the next 10+ years, we will live in a world where robots are embedded into our daily lives as our friends, teammates, and even as part of our families. Robots will perform helpful tasks, ensure our safety, and interact with us in friendly ways only currently known to science fiction. To get there, we need a programmable robot to "democratize" robots-- move them out of the world of "roboticist" and into a world where software developers can invent thousands of useful skills for everyday life. In this session, Chris Meyer, Head of Developer Experience at Misty Robotics, will explore how the future of robotics begins with a developer platform and what it will take to get to there. He will share some topics that Misty’s community of developers are currently exploring in-depth, including personality and autonomous AI.

OPEN TALK: My Python Machine Learning App Went from 2 Fps to 70 Fps on the Same Platform How Did We Do That?
Python is the most popular programming language in the world. According to the IEEE, Python is the key language used across multiple disciplines from machine learning, embedded vision to science, education and increasingly embedded applications at the edge. 

However due to the intense computation required by these applications, it can be difficult for developers of these applications to achieve the desired performance targets. The traditional way to address this challenge is to increase the processing capacity, which is a double edged sword as it increases power demands which negatively impacts many edge based applications. 

There is however, another way to increase performance using Python while still achieving power targets. This is to make use of the Xilinx PYNQ framework, PYNQ enables Python developers to access the parallel performance offered by programmable logic without the need to be a programmable logic developer. 

This session will outline how you can use Python in combination with the PYNQ frame work to accelerate your application, explaining the PYNQ Python APIs and Packages which enable interaction with the programmable logic and the wider PYNQ community.

PRO TALK: A Tale of Doctors, Pilots and Airplanes: What Software Engineering Can Learn from Aviation and Medicine
Whether it's the small pet project at home, the open source project on GitHub or the large enterprise application at work: A big and important part of software engineering is good craftsmanship. Not without reason do we compare creating software solutions to building a house. Even the vocabulary sounds similar: We "build" applications, we "connect" systems and "do the plumbing", we "bolt" infrastructure together and "tinker" workarounds for existing problems. However a lot of things that are simply non-negotiable for a good craftsman are often ignored or interpreted in a creative way. But why? A lot of professions have been around a lot longer than software engineering and have developed "best practices" to handle typical problems and challenges. Especially aviation puts emphasis on precision and reliability - who wants to hear that his flight has been cancelled because of missing or bad quality maintenance? The same goes for doctors and nurses: Errors and carelessness can lead to life and death situations very quickly. So we as software engineers can definitely benefit from taking a closer look on aircraft maintenance or the medical sector to learn from them, optimize our processes and last but not least try to reduce the stress that we see over and over again.

PRO TALK: Cloud Native Full Stack Development for Node Developers
As cloud services and deployment platforms have come to bear more and more responsibility for the “Enterprise” features of modern application development, Node.js becomes more appealing for developers who want to take advantage of its light weight, quick startup time, developer productivity and overall happiness. With cloud native application development patterns, supported by a Kubernetes deployment platform, Node.js is a formidable enterprise player. But cloud native application development can seem daunting. How do you both write an application and also deal with DevOps automation, service discovery, observability, image immutability, scalability, failover and all of the other cloud native and enterprise ideals? It’s a lot to keep track of. It’s a lot to do. It’s Scary! But it doesn’t have to be. In this talk I will show you how to make Kubernetes Node.js application deployment simple and straightforward. Take a journey with me to the cloud. By the time we’re done, attendees will have created a Node.js webapp and deployed it to a Kubernetes cluster.

PRO TALK: Microservice in Practice with Ballerina and Kubernetes
Microservices increasingly are becoming the software architecture of choice as enterprises seek to deliver apps and services with greater agility, resiliency, reliability, performance, and efficiency. Teams can deliver value quickly and independently while working with a programing language of their choice, depending on services that they are building. Ballerina is a new open source programming language that is designed to bring code-first agility to the challenge of integrating across endpoints while maintaining reliability, scalability, observability, and security. It is a compiled, transactional, statically and strongly typed programming language with textual and graphical syntaxes. The Ballerina has first-class support for distributed transactions, circuit-breakers, stream processing, data-access, JSON, XML, gRPC, and many other integration challenges. Ballerina understands the architecture around it - the compiler is environment aware with microservices directly deployable into infrastructures like Docker and Kubernetes. This session will explore how Ballerina specialize on writing microservices and deploy into Kubernetes without written YAMLs and dockerfile.

In this talk, I will explain what I've learned since becoming a recruiter... as well as some potentially jarring truths, including how a recruiter often can't put you up for a job that you aren't *already* doing and why recruiters almost never submit you if you have a lot of consulting stints or seem like a job hopper...and what you can do about that. I also share some strategies and tactics that candidates can leverage in the process, including etiquette for gracefully eluding domination during the negotiation process, best practices for maximizing compensation, and how leveraging word of mouth can short-circuit and circumvent undesirable aspects of the job search process.

PRO TALK: Building Data Mashup Solutions with NYC Open Data
The times, when corporations had all relevant data stored in a few, large-scale enterprise databases, are over. Today’s businesses require data from many disparate data sources for decision making, analytics and day-to-day operations. To accommodate these needs, development tools must be able to interface with relational databases, non-relational data stores and REST APIs alike. In this session, we’ll show how Oracle's Low Code Development Platform APEX and the Oracle JavaScript Extension Toolkit (JET) enables businesses to easily build these type of data mashups, tapping into a variety of local and public data sources, such as New York City's Open Data portal (opendata.cityofnewyork.us). Using powerful components, such as Interactive Grids and JET-based data visualizations, developers can create comprehensive dashboards, reports and charts to meet their business user's needs.

KEYNOTE: Meetup -- The Four Components of High Performing Teams
Do you have a great team & a great mission but don't understand why the pace of delivery is so slow? Architecture & tech stack is only one part of the story.
I believe high performing teams need four things to be effective:
Mastery - The skills & knowledge needed to do a great job, and a clear path to get to the next level.
Autonomy - The space to figure out their own solution to a problem & how they want to work
Purpose - A clear sense of direction, and the knowledge of how what they’re working on fits into the big picture & helps their team succeed.
Safety - A team that is afraid won’t take risks or experiment, a team that is afraid of finger-pointing won’t learn from mistakes.
In this talk I’ll explain why those four things are key to teams being successful and give examples of how I’ve turned teams around by fixing the lack of one or more of them. Attendees will leave with practical examples of how to diagnose & change their teams.

OPEN TALK: Digital Transformation of the NYC School System
History of Products in the Largest School System in the World We have a lot of legacy applications maintaining data for the past 40-50 years. Over the period we moved a lot of manually processes to automated processes creating more burdens and data volume to our legacy system, keep in mind we have to maintain data for many year at one time. Performance and fast deployment were becoming key factors. Staring from 2012 we took a step back and re-creating our architecture and products. My team supports all Financial and HR transaction in the agency. Modernizing Financial Products In 2012 we started evaluating different techniques and methodologies. As we were Microsoft shop in 2012 we trying to user C#,Asp.net for web end, MSMQ were introduced to stream data between different components. SQL server was our main database. This did not help significantly and the bottle neck remains with data retrieval and data processing. In 2014 - We did another round of POC but this time we used node.js with express and Angular, Redis as enterprise message bus and mongoDB as backend data store. To our surprise the performance were greatly improved. Our financial transaction performance were improved by 300% In 2015-18 - We took the POC and started converting into main stream product contains HR and Financial data for the agency. Maintenance becomes easy as previously we are maintain hundreds of tables in SQL where-as all those were converted into handful of collections. Policy changes comes to us on a rapid pace and it’s easy to add more data in the mongoDB without compromising any data layer. Scalability was awesome; room and experimental freedom was key for many architecture. 2018-19 - We started introducing micro services, with streaming in Kafka and connecting Kafka and mongoDB to bring data from all other systems to mongoDB and make this as single source of truth. Also, we are doing POC with spark and mongoDB so that all analytics and data processing can be done from one platform which we can’t achieve if we stick to our old database. Performance We improved 300% improvement in single transaction. We do millions of transaction per day. Data Growth Not to worry about archiving as the mongoDB is now able to handle huge data load for many years Development Productivity Due to introduction of modern technologies our development productivity increase more than 100%

PRO TALK: Read the Label before You Eat: A Case Study on Securing Dependency Management
Summary

How do you convince yourself to adopt the latest and greatest third party tools when you are responsible for processing over $100 billion? Through this talk we will explain how we developed a workflow where we could use the latest node packages while still avoiding a potential danger.

Description
Adyen is risk averse by the very nature of the business it is in, hence the concern of introducing a third party package/service in our ecosystem. Since we cannot just sit on the sideline and avoid the new tools so we developed a workflow to make sure that we shield ourselves from the mayhem caused by rouge packages and also not keep our developers devoid of the good and shiny tools. This talk will be composed of the below major topics:
Why are we risk averse by nature
A peek into the business we are in and why do we need to take certain measures to stay compliant.
How did we make the transition on our front-end stack to use npm packages on client side

When our in-house, secure, dependency management tool, Skantek (which can be plugged with npm audit and also tools like synk), was still a work in progress, how did we leverage orchestration to continue building future features for our product using the npm packages
How does our current workflow looks like and what are we doing to improve it
Details about Skantek including the stuff we care about when we are scanning packages, how are internal registry is setup, what happens when we find a rouge or zombie package and the things we are working on to improve it.

PRO TALK: Making Furniture with Javascript
You have probably heard about [Atwood's Law](https://blog.codinghorror.com/the-principle-of-least-power/) - an application that can be written in JavaScript, will eventually be written in JavaScript.But furniture doesn't fit that criteria, right? Check out how a global community of makers and hackers are trying to using JavaScript to make computational furniture for everyone everywhere.This talk is about the O-LAP project. O-LAP is an open-source community run platform for designers to experiment with parametric furniture design. Parametric furniture designs can be customized in a web app which is connected to a network of makers. https://o-lap.org

OPEN TALK: Break Up Your Services Using the Reconciliation Pattern
The most important thing I’ve learned as a professional developer is how to write easy-to-test code, and code is easy to test when you break up complex pieces into smaller units. Now what happens if we break up complicated services the same way we break up complicated blocks of code? Let’s take what makes code easy to unit test and apply it to service design.

Whether you want to accelerate time to market, reduce bugs, or make it easier to add features and iterate -- with the Reconciliation Pattern (used by Kubernetes and React) I’ll show you how you can break up complex workloads into smaller easy to test pieces at the services layer & walk you through a real-world example of how we’ve successfully deployed this pattern for services at WP Engine.

PRO TALK: The Realtime Revolution: How Instant Connections Are Transforming Products & Industries
Every major technology shift for the last decade has been driven by persistent, consistent, realtime connections: drive-share has eclipsed taxis by instantly connecting riders and drivers; connected exercise machines like Peloton have brought community to home exercise; e-agriculture is boosting yields at rates unimaginable even ten years ago. There are two industries in the world today: those that have been transformed by realtime connections, and those that are about to be.

In this keynote we will examine how the always-on Internet is being replaced by the always-connected Internet; discover technologies that offered early promise and are now evolving into something new and different, with HTTP/2 ready to be the catalyst for the next growth spurt; and outline the new design patterns, combining globally-orchestrated realtime infrastructure with serverless and Edge computing, that will be fundamental to the emerging winners across industries.

PRO TALK: The Hidden Value of Core Values: How Engineering Teams Can Scale Smart
Engineering teams at fast-growing startups face a unique challenge: As they welcome dozens and even hundreds of new faces a year, they must preserve the original ethos of what made them so successful in the first place. Without a set of clearly communicated and widely distributed core values, large engineering teams will have a fractured identity that prevents them from working in lockstep. In this talk, Brian will show how establishing guiding principles from the onset can help startups create more cohesive engineering teams as they scale. Sharing best practices from his experience at Lucidchart overseeing a team that has grown from a handful to hundreds of engineers, Brian will discuss how to clearly define your core values, communicate them to the organization, and enable a high-performance team. Attendees will discover how to put core values at the center of everything they do, including hiring, coaching, morale, promotions and even difficult conversations.

We hear it all the time; Management has a list of requirements for a new product line. The design team is tasked with designing; the dev team is tasked with building, and after reading 1,000 grueling feature requirements everyone reluctantly signs off on a release date. Then the real fun begins. The design team gets creative. The dev team gets technical. Product requirements are incorrect (or missed), Ego’s collide, and the whole team stresses to meet rapidly approaching deadlines. Where did the communication break down? Why can’t team members all speak the same language? We’re here to tell you that they can, and it starts with process. During this presentation, we’ll show you how to train your team to work more effectively together and how to establish a “common language” to overcome cross-disciplinary obstacles. This talk will highlight case studies, examples, and procedures the audience can use to better their lives and their product development lifecycle.

OPEN TALK: When Your Best Developers Leave, Does Their Knowledge About Your Code Leave with Them?
Given that employee turnover is highest in tech companies among all industries, chances are your best developers will leave and someone new will have to take over your codebase within the next 18 months. Where is the knowledge your development team has created and shared stored today? If you are like most companies, the answer is not encouraging. Developers report spending as much as 75% of their time trying to understand existing code, while fewer than 20% learn about their code from internal tools and documentation.

FEATURED SPEAKER: Stress Testing in Production: A Survival Guide by the New York Times on Midterm Elections 2018
An election is a momentous event at The New York Times. Our subscribers rely heavily on real-time and most accurate updates. Since our traffic projections were skyrocketing for election night for 2018 midterms and with our recent migration to a cloud-based infrastructure, we decided to do a simulation of election night traffic by executing stress test of our systems in a production environment to validate stability & reliability of our system under extremely heavy load conditions. The Times attracted a record-breaking number of readers on the 2018 midterms night. The preparation we did ahead by aligning our teams and designing a model to scale, helped us resolve issues with minimal disruption successfully.
In this talk we will go over:
* A full step by step guide for a successful stress test, from designing, executing & analyzing
* Lessons learned from challenges we faced doing stress testing in a cloud-based infrastructure

CANCELLED TALK: Winning the Never-Ending Flakiness Battle
Flaky tests not only cost a lot of money and resources to software companies, but also have a huge impact on developer productivity and confidence. At Spotify, we built Master Guardian which analyzes more than 15 million test runs daily across only 4 different repos, identifying non-deterministic test behavior and categorizing and suppressing build failures when needed, saving valuable developer and CI/CD time.

OPEN TALK: Reclaiming Javascript: Building Scalable Web Components with React, Redux, GraphQL, Webpack and Docker
This is perhaps the most exciting time to be a Javascript developer. New npm packages are being released almost everyday; likewise, new frameworks, libraries and websites are being launched to help developers plug into the ecosystem. 

In this osmosis of ideas, technologists and developers are building new open source projects and pushing the frontiers of Javascript. Indeed, this new climate offers unprecedented opportunities to grow and excel as a Javascript engineer. 

However, it’s easy to get overwhelmed and lost in this sea of information - developers may find it difficult to choose optimal libraries to build scalable systems that can offer the best possible user experience. 

Menelaos Kotsollaris is well aware of these challenges; as a software engineer at Trulioo, the world’s leading identity verification company, he authored EmbedID, an open source npm package, that enables organizations to verify the identity of individuals around the world, using only a snippet of code. 

This will be a live coding presentation with a Q&A at the end. It will cover:

- How to configure Webpack to extract custom packages that can be utilized by other developers using npm commands
- How to test these components
- How to separate UI from state using Redux-Thunk
- Showcase GraphQL integration with AWS
- Showcase Hashicorp vault for API Key storage
- How to utilize css-in-js technologies to apply styling into components
- How and when to re-factor codebase

PRO TALK: Agile Estimation That Works
That dreaded phrase in engineering... "can you provide me with an estimate?" Many engineers cringe at the thought of putting a set number of days on a story or ticket. We all know the downfalls of estimation when tied to a story - bloat of the story to include extraneous additions when it's overestimated and cutting of corners (think testing) when underestimated. That being said, for the product managers, business owners, and product owners, having a clear roadmap and sense of timeframe and budget is extremely helpful when trying to map out your strategy for product development. This talk will address some techniques your team can implement to provide estimates that don't get bog down your agile process. The process implements agile methodologies rather than the waterfall techniques that are often tied to estimation processes. The goal of this talk will be to provide you with practices you can bring back to your team that help with transparency in scope and streamlined development. 

As the COO of Def Method (a software consultancy based in NYC), I work closely with our clients and engineering teams to map out a process that offers flexibility and transparency. As such we've worked to develop a product discovery, estimation process, and re-estimation process that helps to guide each project we're on.

PRO TALK:Modernization and Transformation Using Blockchain and Emerging Technology
Blockchain is one of the foundational digital transformation tools, especially when combined with the power of other emerging technologies including AI, ML and RPA. Such combinatorial power is transformational across all sectors, both commercial and public. - From a business perspective, Blockchain help create a frictionless (business) network of trust and transparency both internally and externally to the organization, which in return provides opportunities for real-time trusted data, streamlines efficiencies, open doors to costs cutting by removing various intermediaries, lessens the burden on users, and allows for innovations and re-engineering of antiquated business processes. Blockchain provides framework for creation of new business models. A blockchain project currently at HHS is already seeing an extraordinary impact with a total estimated ROI estimated over 800% over 5 years. - Applying it to any business begins with a full assessment to determine if the company, including the people, are ready and the appropriate blockchain use case is selected. Prioritization should be made to business value and ROI, mission, long-term impact and organizational need before implementing the technology for sake of technology. - Work and impact must be considered outside of single cryptocurrency case. We have seen industries leveraging blockchain for multiple uses cases from supply chain, identity, trade, to managing human resources including finance, transportations, energy, health, government. - Our work implementing the a blockchain project in the public sector was the first ever Federal blockchain project in any procurement function, either government or commercial, in the world. With initial built completed only 8 weeks, it resulted in a large reduction of business friction, including manual work, lowering costs, an improved vendor experience, and a shortened cycle time - from 110 to 9 days.

KEYNOTE: Foursquare -- Why You Need a Phone’s-Eye-View of the World
In the near future, a digital twin of the world will exist via new technologies, and Foursquare will be there to help developers power it with our phone’s eye view of millions of places. It’s the magic of Pilgrim—our proprietary tech with industry-leading precision and stop detection—that makes all of this possible. The engineers who understand how to use it will have a leg up bridging the gap between location data and understanding of the real world. In its 10 years, Foursquare has always been thinking about the future of location-based and contextual-aware services, and working to invent the pieces of this future that didn’t yet exist. In his first Developer Week session, Foursquare SVP of Engineering Matt Kamen will raise the curtains behind how Foursquare solved the most complex problems inherent in location technology -- like understanding where a phone is in a multi-level, multi-purpose building (ie. shopping malls), as one example. Today, Pilgrim SDK helps developers understand how mobile phones see the world—quietly, efficiently, no action required. Foursquare has evolved from a search and discovery explorer app into something much bigger: the first independent location technology platform. Kamen will unpack the lessons learned along the way, via the creation and commercialization of Pilgrim and our belief that it can help developers create the next generation of contextually-aware services. Kamen’s talk will include: an inside look into how we built our proprietary Snap-to-Place machine learning technology that helps accurately “snap” visits to identifiable venues; our approach to privacy by design; our methodology to separate good data from bad; and a look into the new building blocks Foursquare is inventing to help developers create the future.

FEATURED SPEAKER: Re-Training ML Models without Data Auditing Is like Skydiving without Parachutes
Re-training deployed ML models is required for adapting to changing user patterns. But real-world data pipelines for re-training data are messy — from unexpected source changes/null values during ingestion to referential integrity problems across databases. The end result is is a mix of low and high quality data that is detrimental to model accuracy leading to unexpected bias as well as significant deviation errors. Additionally, debugging of such issues becomes a ping-pong blame game between ML and Data Engineering teams. This talk describes how we address the issue with our framework called ML Contracts Escrow. A contract defines how model training needs to be handled depending on the quality of data. There are two building blocks of the framework: a) Automatically profiling the data pipeline tracking operational properties, data quality, and configuration change tracking across all components of the pipeline including the data sources; b) Enforcing the contract that either schedules or alerts or defers the model training. The Data Engineering team is responsible for the profiling of the pipeline. The ML team focusses on the other half of the contact that specifies how different data profiling scenarios need to be handled. The framework supports a range of contract actions such as handling anomaly in job profiling to trigger a data circuit breaker or canceling re-training or change online training to offline manually triggered policy, etc. The talk covers details of the framework in the context of handling real-world data pipeline issues.

OPEN TALK: Low-Code Development Tools: Game Changing, or Game Over?
As developers, we take the risk of adopting new tools and frameworks because we’re tired of wasting time doing boring, choreful, low-value tasks with code. We want to get to the good stuff - the interesting work where we’re pushing our code into the future to solve problems that matter.

We’re rightfully skeptical of “no-code solutions” that claim to “solve” the problems of code debt and boilerplate productivity, but force us to surrender our code or compromise on design - which is not gonna happen.

There’s a new breed of low-code tools that let us rapidly build out legit apps that scale and work beautifully, but let us reach for code when we need to build beyond what comes in the box.

The pitch: we’re Skuid, this is what we do, and we want to show you that this is real. ln 20 minutes we will:
  • Launch a free-forever developer site
  • Setup read/write data connections to REST and SQL backends
  • Assemble a componentized UI surfacing that data with two-way bindings
  • Interact with app from Chrome console using Skuid’s JS API
  • Integrate with source control and continuous integration using Skuid CLI
  • Extend with code using a custom component from Skuid Labs

Forcing developers to compromise is history; the age of harmonious declarative and extensible development has begun. Come and see.

PRO TALK: Pro Talk: End-To-End Design Patterns for "DApps"
Decentralized applications are key to mainstream adoption for blockchain. However, private key management, wallet requirements, high latency, frequent micro payment of gas fees, etc. all combine to make today's DApps very difficult to use, thereby creating significant barriers to entry. To fully resolve what may appear, from the surface, to be UI/UX issues, we need to redesign the entire stack of blockchain services — from wallet to JavaScript UX to different gas mechanisms. In his talk, Dr. Yuan will provide retrospectives on several DApps that he and his team developed and marketed in the Ethereum ecosystem, as well as address:* DApp-specific optimizations for wallets such as web3 integration, payment prompt, DApp launch mechanisms, and DApp portals* Seamless and streamlined gas payments * How to handle pure view smart contract functions * Centralized vs. decentralized private key management * UX improvements for transaction waiting time * Third-party gas payments ("net neutrality") Dr. Yuan also will impart new approaches to design useable DApps and, as a community, propose dan discuss new EIPs that can improve DApp usabilities.

PRO TALK: The App Developer's Kubernetes Toolbox
If you're developing applications on top of Kubernetes, you may be feeling overwhelmed with the vast number of developer tooling in the ecosystem at your disposal. Kubernetes is moving at a rapid pace, and it's becoming impossible to keep up with the latest and greatest development environments, debuggers, and build, test and deployment tools. In this talk, we'll share from our experience building applications on top of Kubernetes at Bitnami. We'll take a look at the landscape and answer questions like "should my team be using minikube or a shared Kubernetes environment?", "what's the difference between Skaffold, Draft and Telepresence?" and "should I be building an operator or a Helm chart?". We'll try to discern which tools best fit a scenario or workflow by looking at real-world examples of Kubernetes applications.

OEPN TALK: Sustaining Product Innovation: Turning “Aha Moments” into Products
Some of the greatest product innovations began with the question: “You know what would be cool? If we could just...” 

In a disruptive landscape, where change is rapid, and inevitably upends the status quo, product, engineering and R&D teams are always bristling with new ideas. 

Sometimes good ideas are born from sudden flashes of insight or discovery; if they seem particularly promising, developers and engineers are quick to apply lean startup principles to quickly prototype and validate them. 

But what happens next? Do we keep building on them? Do we rework them? Do we discard them so that they join the growing pile of other aborted ideas? 

These are hard questions; and, to answer them, one must consider a slew of factors: Opportunity costs, resource allocation, technical considerations, buy-ins from senior management, among other serious considerations that stand in the way. 

Join Trulioo’s Conor Delahunty and Marat Asadurian, as they call upon their own challenges and experiences in building something entirely new while working within the constraints of existing product roadmaps. This talk will cover: 

- Balancing ideas with expectations around delivering actual code and features 
- Wanting to do a lot, but being unable to execute on pace 
- Sustainable Prototyping: Throw-away vs build-on-top
- Ensuring a continuous feedback loop
- Acting on new ideas without burdening the rest of your team with extra work
- Turning problems and obstacles into new learnings

FEATURED TALK: Finding Mission-driven Work in Tech
If you want to do work that is mission driven, how do you find an organization that utilizes your skill set while also making a positive social impact? We will review a framework for finding work with deep impact that drives and fulfills on a daily basis. Early career software engineers will come away with actionable steps to help them in their search for social impact driven tech jobs. AUDIENCE Recent graduates, early career, and mid-career software engineers searching for social impact driven tech jobs. This topic may also be relevant for those more advanced in their careers, but who are seeking to find more purpose within their work INTRODUCTION The stereotype of a software engineer is that of a unidimensional nerd who lives in their parents‚ basement and has no social skills. The truth is that software engineering is actually one of the most versatile professions. Software engineers have many skills ‚Äì project management, building mobile apps, web products to name a few. It is applicable in a range of industries like healthcare, education, pharma, ecommerce, automobiles, agriculture, finance. Not all skills are so transferable and it's truly a privilege. This struck me recently when I was at the 2018 Grace Hopper Conference where I met and interviewed so many incredible women in tech. Many fresh graduates there echoed a common theme about wanting to use technology for social good. This post is for those of you who want to use your software engineering skills for social impact. If you‚ interested in doing something that is mission driven, or using your skills to do good and have positive social impact, where do you go from there? How do you find an organization that utilizes your unique and powerful skill set, while also making a positive social impact? I understand that there are many factors that go into choosing a job: location, salary, team, size of the organization and others. But a decade ago, during the height of the financial crisis, I made a decision to find meaningful work with a social impact driven organization. But I was clueless about how to go about it. Luckily, my decisions though unconventional, led me down the right path. I got a master‚ degree in Public Policy with a focus on harnessing technology for social good. Over the years I created, consulted for, interned, and worked with many organizations across the globe who are driven by a desire to create social impact. I have distilled this experience to create the following simple framework to help recent graduates and early career software engineers in their search for social impact driven tech jobs.What is the mission of the organization and does it align with your own values? This seems like a simple question, but it requires a bit of introspection. Your values don‚ have to only be your moral values, but they can also be your hobbies and interests. I have a keen interest in policy and politics, but also love shopping for unique artisanal products and it‚ a combination of all these that led me to my current job at Etsy. What is the mission of the organization? Do they fulfill their mission? Many organizations claim that they have a social mission because it sounds cool. You need to investigate this claim a little to make sure that the organization is not just paying lip service to a social mission. Check if they are practicing what they are preaching. Find out what how they define impact and how they measure it. A lot of this information is publicly available, you just need patience to unearth it. You can find it in their blogs, annual reports and most importantly by talking to their employees, which leads me to my next point.What is the organizational culture like? This is the part that requires the most work. It is crucial to understand organizational culture and whether the organization‚ commitment to social change reflects in how they treat their employees. Finding this out is hard work since this information is not in the public domain. Even though it‚ time consuming, invest time in studying the internal workings of the organization. Speak to your professional network about the organization and try to talk to at least a few of their employees. Before I joined Etsy, I went to their code as craft event and met an employee who was doing a job similar to what I was looking for. Talking to them was really helpful in understanding how Etsy worked. Don‚ hesitate to ask questions about organizational culture during your interview process. What ability will you have to make impact and change at the organization? Your job satisfaction will depend as much on your role within the organizational structure as much as the work the organization does as a whole. Of course, this is more important if you are applying for a senior position, but it‚ useful to consider this even at entry-level positions. One of my jobs was at an incredible mission driven organization, but its bureaucracy made it difficult to bring about internal change. I like nimble organizations that are open to new ideas and change. While looking for a job it‚ important to remind oneself that no job is a 100% match. It‚ similar to a romantic relationship. My husband is not a 100% match for me. We have wildly differing tastes in music, sports and most importantly in food. But our value systems are similar and that is what really matters. Like an ideal partner, an ideal employer should give you the space to grow as an individual. It‚ also important to remember that social change takes time, dedication and commitment. If you have the commitment and patience for such work, invest time and patience in finding an organization that demonstrates similar commitment, not just on the surface but even in its internal processes. If you cannot find such an organization, maybe it‚ time to start one of your own. OUTCOMES/CONCLUSION By the end of this session, participants will have: A better understanding of themselves, more specifically what drives them from a purpose/mission perspective, A framework to follow when researching potential job and career growth opportunities, Questions to ask themselves and their potential employers when going through the hiring process

PRO TALK: Top 3 Mistakes Organizations Make When Hiring Remote Leaders
It is vital that every organization looking to hire remote leaders understands the common mistakes that exist out there in order to avoid those mistakes and be successful in this challenging task. There are certain manuals and traits that remote leaders need to follow, and it is of great importance that organizations are aware of this. Remote recruitment, in general, is quite challenging of a task, and our Director Sharon Koifman will be able to help the audience with absolutely useful information due to his experience and knowledge of this field. You can find a podcast where he addresses this topic in the following link https://mixergy.com/interviews/distantjob-with-sharon-koifman/. In any case, here are some examples of common mistakes that organizations should ignore making. First, usually, organizations forget about the significance of cultural differences which bring problems eventually. Next, is quite important to keep in mind to communicate the details and instructions of the project set. This may seem less important to organizations, however, this is where most problems with remote leaders arise. Hence, a company‚ values should be clear to the potential remote leader, so that they understand if their values fit the company or not. All these points will be discussed in depth and very useful examples will be brought during the conference.

PRO TALK: Python and R for Advanced Analytics
As the complexity and volume of data grows, data teams are optimizing their analytics workflows to support more complex logic, advanced transformations and customized visualizations that will be crucial in future proofing your business. There isn’t an abundance of external conversation about the languages used to analyze these massive quantities of data, but analysts and developers are becoming more sophisticated as their field matures, evolving to work with bigger datasets and integrating new techniques into their workflow. This means more than just finding new ways to innovate with SQL — advanced languages like R and Python have become a more critical part of everyday analysis and should be a centerpiece in the developers “day zero” strategy when building any technology stack. In this presentation,Britton Stamper, Senior Sales Engineer at Periscope Data by Sisense , will discuss the advantages of implementing SQL vs. Python & R as part of your developer tech stack strategy and explain how to bring the workflows of all three together on one platform. To illustrate how SQL and Python work together to answer complex data questions, Britton will share real-life examples of how adopting this strategy can impact your business now and in the future.

General principals of microservice (MS) all apply to SA, but it’s even more suitable as with SA you no longer manage your infrastructure the same way. What are some of these principals for MS that applies to SA? * Your SA infrastructure (as code) can now more closely be treated as code. You can and should treat your SA part of the infrastructure as cattle. ** THIS ENABLES CI/CD. ** Small, single unit of responsibility: This is a core tenant of UNIX and computing, do one thing and do it well. This leads to smaller blast radius; easier to unit test and refractor. When you build SA, you follow this same principle. ** THIS ENABLES CI/CD. ** Short-lived and stateless: As characteristics of Serverless Functions; this forces the developers to think about clearly delineating computing functions and its data. ** THIS ENABLES CI/CD and also design data driven architecture ** What are some its pitfalls? (See Challenges) What kind of tools may be helpful? (See part of How) Your tooling should be flexible but manageable. I recommend using SA framework (we use Serverless) to help build your SA infrastructure. For CI/CD, I would look at your organization security requirement and see if your CI/CD Challenges Greater technological complexity; can be difficult to troubleshoot. This can be alleviated by building your SA architecture into units of functions; for example we use step functions to manage lambda functions so that we have a clear way of how the lambda functions interact. Cultural: Your infrastructure team need to understand core tenants of DevOps, understand SA and CI/CD. Ideally your team should already have experiences of some of IaC, SA, CI/CD. There are some required skillsets to achieve these goals. Security: Restricting Production from developer; requires every deploy from CI/CD Newer tools that are less mature. Your need to treat your SA infrastructure as code. How we overcame those challenges (Show) How our Data Engineering team (intersection.com) leverages Serverless Framework to implement our data pipelines with CI/CD. I will give a overview and demo on how we use Serverless Framework to create Data Pipeline with AWS Step Function, all of which are part of a CI/CD pipeline. Recommended: Start small; start SA first before CI/CD and/or start CI/CD without SA.

PRO TALK: The Future of Applications: Building Real-Time Streaming Apps That Transcend Devices and Clouds
This session presents a new model for building real-time applications using stateful Web Agents and multiplexed streaming APIs. Using the open source Swim platform, developers can quickly and easily build stateful, decentralized applications and real-time user experiences. Swim applications automatically optimize usage of available cloud, edge and network resources to ensure streaming updates are continuously delivered in real-time. Come see how easy it is to build ultra-low latency, massively distributed streaming applications without ever depending on a database, message broker or app server. The future of applications is collaborative, real-time and stateful. If you're building next-generation software (for AR/VR, autonomous vehicles, artificial intelligence, smart cities, etc), the biggest challenge remains in efficiently processing and distributing multiple real-time data streams. Furthermore, it's critical to be able to combine data streams to identify correlations and power real-time user experiences. So why are we still using stateless, complex, slow, request-driven REST architectures?

PRO TALK: Open Source Governance at Massive Scale
It is one thing to put a project up on GitHub and call it "Open Source." It is quite another to commit to growing and governing a project developed and maintained by contributors across the world. Both technical and community skills must be practiced simultaneously - a project cannot be successful with only one or the other. Open Source governance is hard enough with one or two projects. Now imagine trying to consistently and fairly govern a sprawl of 1200+ (and growing!) Open Source projects with complex technical and human interdependencies. Automation certainly helps with testing and releases, but it's also critical to maintain the personal touch that ensures both higher quality software and makes working in Open Source so rewarding. Come to this talk to hear a tale of a medium-sized startup experiencing the pain of Open Source sprawl and how they mitigated that pain by developing consistent governance so that their Open Source community not only survived but is thriving.

Distributed tracing is invaluable to operating software, allowing operators and developers alike to quickly diagnose production issues. So why do we keep treating it like a "day two" problem, stashing it away as yet another TODO for once things are running and all the fires are put out? In this talk, I'll demonstrate how you can apply distributed tracing during the earliest parts of the software development process so you can set -and validate - expectations about your applications from the get go. This includes early identification of possible performance hotspots, compliance with other instrumented RPCs, and visualization of the shape of a request as it traverses your system. Expect to walk away wanting to instrument all your code ASAP. Remember: only YOU can prevent codefires! You shouldn't need any background in tracing or other instrumentation tools, as I'll explain the relevant concepts and terminology. Audience members of all technical levels are welcome.

PRO TALK: Automating Resiliency via Chaos Engineering
Like many large enterprises, Intuit faced significant limitations to test and assure resiliency across complex legacy systems. With the recent migration to public cloud such as AWS, our teams began to proactively test and assure resiliency as part of software and infrastructure pre-release pipelines. By automating resiliency earlier into the product development cycle, we significantly reduced testing cycles from many days of manual efforts to just a few hours via an automated pipeline. This new automation proved invaluable during our tax peak, allowing the team to recover from an incident in just a few minutes. Today, the team is able to programmatically automate test failures in various AWS resources (e.g. Load-balancers, EC2, RDS, DynamoDB, etc.) while also validating system resiliency, alerts, and monitors. As a cloud agnostic enterprise, Intuit utilizes container orchestration system such as Kubernetes and has successfully extended this automation in the cloud. In this talk, we will share how Intuit automated resiliency through Cloud-raider, an in-house tool offering natural language construct for engineers and architects, enables behavior-driven development for resilient systems.

PRO TALK: Gaining Insights from Distributed Traces
Distributed traces are narratives, and they have myriad stories to tell us about the software systems we've created. But, it's not uncommon for these traces to be underutilized. And, in this case, the stories are left untold, and our investment is not only pointless but even wasteful. It's like joining a gym and never stepping foot into the place. This talk will catalog a selection of analysis techniques, explore how we can employ multiple techniques to maximize their value, and go over a couple of common use-cases to ground the discussion in familiar problems. The techniques covered will be human-centric; our objective is to gain insight into our software system and to facilitate decision-making. To finish, we'll discuss how deep we need to go with these techniques before we start realizing their value.
