PRO WORKSHOP: Ballerina: A Modern Programming Language Focused on Cloud Native Applications
Companies are increasingly disaggregating their architectures with approaches like microservices, serverless and APIs to scale. We have seen these disaggregated components become network accessible. We call them endpoints. Whether it is data, apps, APIs, microservices, or serverless functions, everything is becoming a programmable endpoint. The apps we develop today increasingly depend on these endpoints, and these apps can also become programmable endpoints. We need programming languages with much higher level network-aware abstractions to model such applications. Ballerina is a strongly typed, concurrent general purpose language optimized for integration and writing network services and applications. It combines fundamental concepts and tools of distributed systems with direct support for network services, distributed transactions, reliable messaging, stream processing, security, and workflows. It is intended for commercial adoption and provides familiarity for users of Java, C#, and JavaScript. While it looks like Java and other popular languages in some ways, it is very different from those in fundamental ways. This talk will explore how Ballerina is different, why it is different and how those differences give Ballerina an unfair advantage when it comes to writing resilient, performant and secure network services and applications.

PRO WORKSHOP: Taking Advantage of a Serverless Architecture by Deploying Containers in the Cloud
Containerization gives you the agility to distribute and run your software by building once and being able to deploy “anywhere” thanks to a standard format that companies adopt. Containerization is key to dramatically reducing runtime costs and DevOps cycles to increase business agility. Most of the major cloud providers are starting to offer their serverless services for containers such as AWS Fargate or Azure Container Instances to name a few. They allow you to run containers without the need to manage any infrastructure (servers or clusters). You are only billed for your container usage. Developers can now build your Talend Jobs within containers images thanks to standard Maven build. These Talend jobs can now be deployed in containers, so developers have the freedom to deploy integration jobs anywhere. In this session, learn how Talend allows you to use containers and see how containers can be deployed with cloud providers. The session will also feature a live demo of an entire Jenkins pipeline from the build to the run of the job in AWS Fargate as well as Azure ACI.

PRO WORKSHOP: How HTTP/2 Works and How Developers Can Leverage It
Recently, the HTTP protocol underwent a major revision after more than a decade, and the improved version—known officially as HTTP/2—promises to change a lot of things for app developers. HTTP/2 improvements like server push, file streaming and TCP connection optimizations will change the way we use the Internet. Although the underlying networking libraries for mobile devices will continue to handle the protocol changes automatically, it's good for developers to understand the intricacies of HTTP/2 so they can take full advantage of the new feature set. In this talk, the speaker will go through some of the notable new features of HTTP/2, how app developers can adapt to (and fully leverage) the changes and what improvements can HTTP/2 bring to your mobile app.

PRO WORKSHOP: Building an API for Teams - Teaching Designers & Developers to Work Together Effectively
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. These proven steps will allow you to establish a checklist for your team(s) to follow to meet milestones; predict outcomes; and promote effective communication between various stakeholders in your teams.

PRO WORKSHOP: From 0 to ML: Everything You Need to Know to Start Your First ML Project
This talk will help software developers identify problems that are good candidates for machine learning (and those that are not), and go through the steps involved in transforming a rule based system into a machine learning model. Being a software developer who recently started working on a machine learning project that serves over 600,000 merchants at Shopify, I have had to quickly bootstrap my machine learning skills. And it turns out it’s not as complicated or scary as it sounds! Certain problems are inherently good candidates to be solved with machine learning. I will start off by discussing how to identify them, including some real life examples from my organization. Once identified, I will guide the audience through how to define their problem as a machine learning model: identifying their features & labels. I won’t go into detail about training the model, as there are many frameworks out there for that with good documentation. Once the model has been defined I will discuss how to “productionize” it, describing our current setup, how we got there, and some of the challenges we face: monitoring/alerting, “online” training, and changing model features as data changes. This talk intentionally treats model training as a black box, as it is the most well documented step of the ML process. The most challenging and nuanced aspects are identifying problems, defining a model, and productionizing it. I will walk the audience through these steps in detail, using real life examples, and they should leave feeling better prepared to tackle some machine learning problems of their own.

PRO WORKSHOP: Trusted Software Delivery with Blockchain
Software delivery pipelines are comprised of many different tools which are glued together using one or more orchestration platforms. The process from user story to code commits through testing (unit, functional, performance and integration), security audit, packaging and deployment, involves many different people and tools, and may even involve outsourced teams and SaaS or cloud-based tooling. With this complexity, how does an organization know that a change was approved and committed by a trusted developer? Who performed the code review and security audit? Were all the tests run in each of the environments as the change progressed from dev, through test in to staging and finally to production? Some proposed solutions require an organization to fully adopt a single vendor stack and keep all development within their walled garden. This approach is not flexible for modern application development, which often involves multiple technologies from different vendors. In this talk Jesse Stockall, CTO of Embotics, will describe an innovative, flexible software delivery process that uses the distributed transaction capabilities of blockchain to provide a trusted, auditable record of a change across the spectrum of tools, processes and people involved in making that change and delivering the value from it. Jesse will provide example integrations with common DevOps tools and provide insight on blockchain technologies available in the market today and explore key benefits organizations can expect to achieve from a distributed ledger using blockchain, such as greater use of distributed teams (including outsourcing) and multiple best-of-breed technologies and microservice-based architectures, while gaining the visibility, control and audit capabilities required.

PRO WORKSHOP: Building Realtime, Scalable Applications with GraphQL, Events and Serverless
The true power of GraphQL lies not just in its syntax but the fact that it makes it possible to reason about applications in ways we have never thought of before. The realtime bits of the GraphQL spec is one such horizons-widening abstraction when we use it as a tool to think about architecting an asynchronous, event-driven backend. Architecting the frontend of applications to consume a fundamentally async backend is still a challenge. GraphQL subscriptions and live-queries offer an opportunity to design a “reactive” contract between the backend and the frontend. In this model, an app makes a GraphQL mutation and then runs a GraphQL subscription to get updates as they happen. The business logic in serverless functions gets triggered automatically after the mutation and app gets success/error updates as and when they happen. With serverless functions, we get an auto-scalable, resilient backend which is perfect for processing asynchronous actions and stateless workloads. Such tasks include sending emails/push notifications, ETL, long running business logic etc. With no servers to provision and zero ops-tasks, it is very easy for a developer to write and deploy complex logic as functions in their favourite programming language.

PRO WORKSHOP: 3D Made Simple: Breakthrough Technology That Changes Everything in 3D Creation
This session demonstrates how a breakthrough 3D design technology now opens the world of easy 3D creation to anyone and everyone. This new Unity-based technology dramatically speeds the development of 3D content for desktop, VR, and AR. 3D designs can now be completed in minutes rather than hours. 3D designs can now be completed by non-trained creators rather than specialized technicians. Pre-rendered photorealistic 3D designs can now be built and edited real-time with an easy drag-and-drop user interface. Coupled with newly-patented technology to weave together 3D models with live video streaming, the barrier between the virtual world and the real world has now diminished. Taken all together, it is the democratization of 3D design and the beginning of an age where 3D experience will be the norm, not the exception.

3D made simple. Geopogo automated 3D design software has been engineered to open the 3D design market to millions of new users. The software empowers users who want to design in 3D but don't have the lengthy training to master existing software like Autodesk Maya, Unity, and Unreal. Users can use the drag-and-drop UI to design from scratch in Geopogo or import Autodesk Revit models into Geopogo for quick, high-quality rendering using Geopogo's rapidly growing library of furniture, finishes, lighting, and landscaping materials. 3D designs can be completed in minutes rather than hours. The software has been engineered to run on desktop, VR, and AR devices. Beta testing has been completed and Geopogo will be launched in the marketplace in January 2019. Our values: Access. Discovery. Creativity.

PRO TALK: OS for AI: Microservices & Serverless Computing Enable the Next Gen of Machine Intelligence
You've trained machine learning models on your data, but how do you put them into production? When you have thousands of model versions, each written in any mix of frameworks (R/Java/Ruby/SciKit/Caffe/Tensorflow on GPUs etc), how do you efficiently deploy them as elastic, scalable, secure APIs with 10ms of latency? ML has been advancing rapidly, but only a few contributors are focusing on the infrastructure and scaling challenges that come with it. We've built, deployed, and scaled thousands of algorithms and machine learning models, using every kind of framework. We've seen many of the challenges faced in this area, and in this talk I'll share some insights into the problems you’re likely to face, and how to approach solving them. In brief, we’ll examine the need for, and implementations of, a complete Operating System for AI: a common interface for different algorithms to be used and combined, and a general architecture for serverless machine learning which is discoverable, versioned, scalable and sharable.

PRO TALK: Building SDKs for Infrastructure Engineers
Building an API-first software platform provides unlimited opportunities for third party integrations. Except that understanding developer documentation for API integration can be daunting for infrastructure engineers who may have only recently created their first Hello, World application! An exceptional SDK transcends experience, and is easily usable whether consumed by a first-time coder or an experienced developer. Providing the option for using SDKs can change the perception of software integration from scary to fun...but that means you have to build and maintain a set of SDKs. This session will discuss simplicity, reliability testing, error management, and integration considerations. Join Rebecca Fitzhugh and Drew Russell to learn more about the challenges faced and lessons learned when building and maintaining SDKs for Python and Go.

PRO TALK: Perfecting Personalization with Deep Learning
With more products flooding the market than ever before, it’s imperative that businesses from retail to real estate not only get their own products in front of customers but also ensure they’re delivering the right ones. Recommender systems meet this need by directing customers to desired products and information, providing major benefits to both companies and users.

Unfortunately, the value of these recommender systems is limited by how much (or how little) they understand individual users and how they collect data on their preferences. Without specific and individualized data, companies can’t deliver the information their customers are looking for.
Advances in deep learning and visual search are enabling companies to collect and use data in smarter ways to deliver recommendations that are more personalized and more useful. AI tools use a person’s digital behavior to individualize recommender results, while visual search technology allows users to upload their own photos to further curate recommendations. Trulia is exploring these capabilities to separate user behavior from user intent and to offer new ways for customers to share personal preferences.

The retail and interior design industries are already leveraging these tools to provide more useful recommendations. The potential of this technology spans sectors from real estate to automotive sales to beauty products and beyond.

In this session, Shourabh Rawat will outline the use cases for deep learning and visual search. He will provide best practices for building systems that can leverage these technologies. Audience members will walk away with a clear understanding of the values of these tools and how to develop applications to implement them at their own companies.

Developer products are, by definition, technically sophisticated and feature-rich. Communicating the benefits of developer products can be complex, and too often, the marketing message reverts to “Just like ______, only cheaper” or “If you like _____, you’ll love us.” This isn’t necessary, and isn’t effective - developers may be allergic to marketing, but they’re some of the most discerning and thoughtful audiences when evaluating products, tools, and services. Creating a community of passionate developer users is the ultimate goal of all developer marketing, based on transparency and mutual feedback.

REST has made publishing HTTP APIs easier, and its benefits on development haven’t gone unnoticed. But, if you need more than basic CRUD operations — or more complex aggregations and transformations — REST can be tough to work with. That’s where GraphQL comes in. Use REST to expose your data the way it exists in your system while giving API consumers a clean GraphQL interface on top to get what they want — and only what they want. In this session, you will learn: • Ways to layer GraphQL capabilities on top of your REST APIs without having to rebuild them • When and why you’d use REST vs. GraphQL • What the future of APIs and integrations could look like

Research indicates that developers working on large codebases spend as much as 75% of their time understanding existing code, instead of solving real problems. That is both a hit on productivity as well as a source of dissatisfaction on the job. Lack of institutional knowledge about the company’s codebase is a main contributor to this situation, in which 80% of developers report that they do not use existing company documentation in their work. In this presentation you will learn how to address this knowledge gap, and improve productivity and job satisfaction for developers.

KEYNOTE: Sure You’re Growing, but Are You Scaling?
Scalability is not just about building apps so that they don’t crash when a lot of users show up, it’s about designing your organization – products, services, engineering and culture – so that it doesn’t crash when it needs to seize new opportunities and sustainably grow. For startups and enterprises alike, the value of speed, the ability to pivot rapidly and to orient around customer behavior has increased– these abilities are now essential, some would argue - existential. Yet, growth brings an asymmetry: you now have to be stable, cost efficient, and keep customer promises, while disrupting yourself - building the next propositions for customer delight. Only a handful of companies in the world have experienced the growth-related challenges that Publicis.Sapient has navigated with its clients; fewer still have proven approaches to overcome such challenges. Sheldon and his teams are the thinkers, designers and builders of some of the largest digital platforms in the world, including two of the top 5 US retail e-commerce sites, the global mobile platform for the world’s largest restaurant operator, and the trading systems of one of largest oil majors. In this session, Sheldon will distill the true foundations of scalability - people, processes, and technology – and how to organize all three for increasing customer and business impact.

PRO TALK: Inside Hopper’s AI Infrastructure: Developing Personalization with Limited Organic Feedback
In this talk, we’ll discuss our production-level, end-to-end infrastructure and workflows to develop AI for travel predictions and recommendations, which now drive 25% of Hopper’s sales. We’ll explore the continuous data ingest from our users (over 30M downloads), and how it enables AI developers to iterate training new neural network designs across millions of users and validate their behavior over multiple data sets. The obstacles faced by the travel industry, such as limited organic feedback (on average people plan 2-3 trips per year vs. 2-3 movies per night on a platform like Netflix), aren’t limited to the travel ecosystem. We will share how the problems we’ve solved in building this infrastructure for training and inference at scale are applicable to others deploying AI-based services.

OPEN TALK: How to Build Video Streaming iOS and Android Apps
Video streaming apps are all the rage and continue to demonstrate rapid growth in usage and creative implementations. Every vertical market has the need for video apps. So, you want to learn how to build a video streaming app, but you don’t know where to get started or you are not a video expert? Or maybe you are just curious about video technology? Then, this session is for you!  To build a live-streaming app for iOS and Android, you don’t have to be a video expert. Using a mobile SDK and cloud streaming service can help you quickly and easily integrate live video into an existing app or service or build a livestream app from the ground up. Using these tools, you can build anything from a basic one-way broadcasting platform to a fully interactive live-streaming app that allows users to create and share their own videos. This is referred to as user generated content. It’s all about the tools, huh?  But wait, there’s more!  What about the need for speed? More and more apps demand real-time streaming delivery—such as those for gaming, financial trading, auctions or interactive experiences like HQ Trivia—you need an API that’s built for speed. Learn how to send live streams to destinations around the world with the goal to minimize the latency time it takes to display a live video from glass to glass. That is, from the glass of the recording device glass to the glass of the end viewer’s screen.  Join Russ Fustino, Wowza Developer Evangelist, in this informative session and see how easy it is to get started building iOS and Android apps using video streaming with actual latency in the sub 3 second range. This just in… that is pretty darn fast for streaming to any point on the globe! Times are changing. Keep up with the times. Hope to see you at the session!   What you will learn in this session:  • How to video stream in iOS and Android apps. • Learn how to get the samples in the SDK and use them. • How to reduce latency of the stream. • Learn about video streaming basics.

PRO TALK: Democratize Serverless Platform with Knative
The evolution of Public Cloud Platforms made infrastructure provisioning and delivery of applications/services faster than ever before. Applications are traditionally deployed on compute instances and offers full control of infrastructure. However, teams are indebted to maintain/rehydrate instances in addition to paying full usage of resources in spite of low utilization. On the other hand, Cloud vendor’s serverless platform such as AWS Lambda has created huge buzz lately however it is good for trivial applications (small workloads) and often requires massive redesign for porting existing applications. Though, the vendor’s serverless platform charges only for the usage of resources, it creates a vendor lock-in when build and design applications tailored made to run on the platform. In parallel, Kubernetes (K8s) emerged as the first choice container orchestration cluster solution. It is matured, cloud-agnostic, battle-tested and planet-scale platform, born out of 15 years of Google's experience of running production workloads. While k8s opened up an array of new possibilities of managing applications, we are yet again surprised with Knative, open source serverless add-on, run atop of K8s. In this technical session, demonstrates application deployment simplified through Knative, abstracting physical infrastructure details from users. The k8s cluster nodes spread across cloud platforms (AWS, GKE, Azure) will be used for the demo which ensures no vendor lock-in and proves any containerized application can be deployed on a shared enterprise infrastructure yet isolated by namespace and promotes optimal resource utilization. Also, the session deep dive into Knative ecosystem and how to leverage built-in support for metric collection, log monitoring and distributed tracing in no extra time.

PRO TALK: Machine Learning in the JavaScript Toolchain
Websites are slow! Double-click shows that the average load time on a 3G network is 19 seconds! On top of that, on mobile devices, JavaScript compared to a JPG image with the same size may require x25 more processing time. How to speed up our apps? Lazy-loading is here to help! By only loading the minimum amount of JavaScript during the initial page load we can improve the UX dramatically. However, this brings another set of questions - how to decide what to load lazily, how to provide instant page load by mindfully prefetching the bundles, without draining the users’ mobile data plan? Machine learning is already playing an essential role in our day-to-day life, and it has the potential to assist in our development process for smaller, smarter, and faster JavaScript applications! In this talk, we'll see how we can create a machine learning model from a Google Analytics report. Later, by empowering static analysis techniques, we'll map this model to the lazy-loaded JavaScript chunks and apply predictive prefetching and data-driven bundling. In the last part of the presentation, we'll look at Guess.js which provides a sample implementation of these ideas.

Whitepages services over 55M annual visitors on its open search web properties and provides 3M+ daily enterprise API transactions. To best service our expansive user and customer base, we developed our own fully-integrated, high-availability Identity Graph database which houses over 5B global identity records as a connected graph.

When it came time to evaluate datastore to serve our online contact records, we needed something with extremely low latency yet very high throughput and scalability. We needed to traverse the Identity Graph links to answer queries and determine how to get a graph database with sub-millisecond latency. Enter modeled graph data on flat NoSql schema using Redis on Flash. Join us to learn how we achieved controlled cost with our large, and ever-growing, amounts of data, without sacrificing response time and high throughput.

A developer platform lives and dies by it's developer community. When huge problems need to be solved, it's easy to make valuable improvements, but what do you do when those are solved and you still see high bounce rates on your site, low developer application completion, and generally poor adoption of your product? This is where your data can save you.
In this talk we'll run through:
  • How to track valuable developer path insights, from moments of anxiety to time to first valuable call.
  • Overlaying support and ticketing information on top of developer path data to decrease developer friction.
  • How to create automated analytics systems to measure success.
  • When these systems should be built, before it's too late.

OPEN TALK: PYNQ: An Embedded Developer's Dream Machine?
Imagine if we could combine the benefits of Raspeberry PI microprocessors, Arduino microcontrollers and the programmable logic of a field programmable gate array (FPGA) in a single development platform? What if we could connect all of these components together with high speed interconnect and add lots of programmable, high-speed IO? That would be quite the embedded development dream machine! Things would be even more exciting if we could integrate all of the parts into a single programmable system-on-chip. 

But wait ... hardware, without good software, is just scrap metal! We need to program the machine with a user-friendly programming language with hundreds of thousands of libraries, so that we would not have to re-write code for problems that we know have already been solved. And since this is a wish-list for our dream machine, we should make sure to include libraries for machine learning and data science because these are some of the hottest areas that we want to explore.

This session will introduce PYNQ, based on Xilinx Zynq programmable System-on-Chips. PYNQ serves up a browser-based, integrated development environment (IDE) for Python, so that new users can experience the power of Zynq without having to install new software, or create their own FPGA hardware designs. Meanwhile, PYNQ makes experienced developers more productive and helps them to create, document, and distribute their designs, more effectively.

PRO TALK: Reactive Cloud-Native Networking with RSocket
Enterprises are moving to the cloud, but few are prepared for networking implications of cloud-native architectures. Specially-designed for microservices communication with far less overhead than HTTP, RSocket is an open source application-level networking protocol and RPC framework built specifically for cloud-native application and microservice communication. It is being developed in collaboration with Netflix, Facebook, Pivotal and others, and is currently being used by some of the highest-traffic sites on the internet. RSocket is designed to handle the challenges of communication between complex networks of services both within the data center and over the internet – extending to mobile devices and browsers. RSocket uses bi-directional application communication technology that predicts the best route to send messages understanding latency and error rates and the ability to handle load balancing, while being able to run over standard transports (like TCP, HTTP/2 and WebSocket). This results in applications that are easier to scale, less failure-prone and easier to operate. In this session, Ryland will explain how RSocket can be used to simplify the way enterprises build and operate cloud-native applications by enabling traditional enterprise developers to build sophisticated, cloud-native, distributed applications.

PRO TALK: GraphQL + Ruby = ❤️
Since Facebook released GraphQL to the world, there has been a lot of traction on the frontend world about it. But somehow, this trend hasn’t reached backend developers. Let’s take a look into how we can introduce GraphQL into our Ruby environments to take advantage of it’s power. Let’s look into the state of GraphQL in Ruby and see how we can benefit of the amazing power that GraphQL APIs can provide us. We’ll also take a deep-dive into a tool I wrote called GQLi, a GraphQL client that enables users to write queries in native Ruby code. I’ll describe it’s philosophy, how to use it, and some cool meta-programming tricks used to create it.

EXEC TALK: HumanOps - Focusing on the Human Side of Running Infrastructure
Humans are a critical part of operating systems at scale, yet we rarely pay much attention to them. Most of the time, energy and investment goes into picking the right technologies, the right hardware, the right APIs. But what about the people actually building and scaling those systems? How can you reach your high availability goals without a team that is able to build reliable systems, and respond when things go wrong? How does sleep and fatigue affect system uptime? System errors are tracked, but what about human error? Can it be measured, and mitigated? This talk will consider the principles and philosophy of HumanOps - focusing on the human side of running infrastructure. It is crucial to consider human system and process design as part of any large scale software, hardware and infrastructure project. This talk will explain how.

80% of mobile applications make use of location services. From finding a restaurant to getting a ride home, location technology is an essential part of many applications. Yet, everybody is developing using the same maps APIs. Generic, one size fits all functionalities. Changing terms & conditions. Unfair pricing and practices.

But if you are serious about location, and if you want your app to stand out, then there is an alternative. This session will help you understand how TomTom is enabling developers around the world to add location to their application: Maps, Routing, Search and Traffic APIs, carefully crafted with TomTom’s 25 years of experience in mapping and navigation.

EXEC TALK: Successful Delivery of Cross Functional Projects
It is very important for developers working on projects that span across multiple teams to align themselves throughout the project and not just work in silos. Agile in tech industry has introduced a sense of independence in teams but unfortunately in fast paced startups it has also led to some amount of teams working in silos. Recently there has been a trend where developers have started to perceive themselves as true partners of product owners and want to be involved in product decisions. Engineers want to make the right software design decisions keeping end customers in mind. Developers are talking design platform and product. We as engineers want to deliver quality software with the right product features in mind. In this session, I would like to talk about my experience of leading a project that spanned across three timezones, three teams all of teams working on multiple projects. How we made the project a success with limited resourcing by planning it right. I will also talk about fun activities such "Hopes and Fears" , "Event Storming", "Group Technical Designs", "Group Code reviews" that were part of the journey. Most of these exercises worked like charm and some needed improvising. Coming out of this session, engineers will feel empowered leading projects that need coordination and will make an impact.

APIs are critical to the digital transformation of your business. How to quickly build APIs off your existing services and data and scale up the development and runtime is becoming a great challenge and opportunity for front-end and back-end teams and developers. In this talk, we will go through a typical API scenario and demonstrate how to use LoopBack, a popular open source Node.js API creation framework, to create and test open APIs in TypeScript on top of databases and REST/SOAP services in a few steps within 30 minutes. Beyond the rapid jump-starting, we will also reveal the pain points around building large scale API projects in Node.js and share tips and techniques to overcome such barriers. The main takeaway for our audience is big pictures and best practices to build APIs at speed and scale with confidence.

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, Leon Tchikindas, Head of Data Science & Analytics at Periscope Data, 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, Leon will share real-life examples of how adopting this strategy can impact your business now and in the future.

PRO TALK: Building a Threat Model, and How npm Fits into It
In an npm, Inc. survey of over 16,000 worldwide developers, 97% of JavaScript developers confirm they use open source code, 77% express concern about whether the open source software they use is secure, and 52% believe that there aren’t satisfactory methods for evaluating whether code is safe. Without built-in security protections, developers must rely on manual code reviews of complex, interdependent software packages, or third-party scans and audits that introduce additional complexity into developer workflows. Who might want to attack your application? If they tried, how would they succeed? Answering these questions is an important exercise that helps you understand how to keep your application secure, so you can sleep at night. Adam will discuss what threat modeling is and how to build threat models for development organizations and applications. And because npm is such a critical part of how developers build JavaScript applications, Adam will demonstrate how npm fits into threat models and how to use npm's tools to keep your JavaScript secure. Adam will also discuss the July 2018 “es-lint” incident, in which npm prevented a potential security event made possible when a developer re-used an old password.

EXEC TALK: Global Product, Local Challenges: What You Need to Know Before Entering New Markets
The internet has been a force multiplier for globalization: Indeed, at no point in history has it been easier for a local product to open the doors to new markets and acquire customers around the world. The most successful tech companies in the world are also the most ubiquitous; their customers exist everywhere and their products aren’t confined by geography – working, instead, in a variety of local contexts. 

But even as the universal language of code has blurred geographical boundaries, there still exist other constraints to global expansion: Differences in language, regulations, politics, privacy laws, age restrictions, and onboarding requirements. These constraints cannot be an afterthought – they need to be the first principles guiding your go-to market strategy. 

Join Anatoly Kvitnitsky, Trulioo’s VP of Growth, as he takes us through his first-hand experience in observing how global products scale into new markets and fit in with a variety of local contexts.

PRO TALK: A Hacker’s View of APIs: Vulnerabilities, Exploits and Defense Options
We've reached tipping point with APIs today where they've become critical enabler of digital transformation for all companies. Examples include: enabled apps to interface with personal Facebook data, to access banking info, to view individual's medical test results & records, or utilities to provide electric metering. APIs are Innovation enablers as listed but also have downside: ubiquity and connectedness to sensitive data make them prime target for hackers. API issues have led to breaches at a large number of big-name organizations. In this session, we'll share how today's hackers identify and attack APIs and additionally review the best approach for securing APIs including how 'artificial intelligence' powered solutions can effectively stop these attacks and provide deep visibility into API sessions for forensic and compliance reporting. Specifically, Francois 's presentation will provide: API cyberattack trends; recent API attacks, what to watch for and how to protect your API activity; how to deliver reports with detailed traffic insight and best practices for securing any API.

EXEC TALK: Driving More Meaningful Customer Interactions with AI
As the calendar flips to 2019, enterprises are increasingly moving artificial intelligence to the top of their priorities. AI promises to help automate processes and make crucial operations, such as customer interactions, more intelligent. Now, businesses can more quickly offer services that previously seemed complex or out of reach, creating the future of customer communications, today. Yet, building AI into products can be challenging, even despite the growth in AI-enabling technology. Bryan Stokes, Sr. Director of Product Management at Vonage, will discuss how enterprises with limited machine learning expertise can leverage simple, secure and flexible solutions to deploy AI in their contact centers. He’ll draw on his experience to explain how enterprises can adapt to customer demands and generate new insights to better serve and delight customers. By enabling AI-based tools, such as programmable building blocks, chatbots, open source skills-based routing, and real-time sentiment analysis, intelligent communications are helping companies to drive better business outcomes.

FEATURED SPEAKER: The Evolution of Software Development and of Conversational Assistants
For decades, the relationship between developer and computer was simple: the human told the machine what to do. Next came machine learning systems, where the machine was in charge of computing the functional logic behind developer-supplied examples, typically in a form that humans couldn't even understand. Now we are entering a new age of software development, where humans and machines work collaboratively together, each doing what they do best. The Developer describes the "what" -- objects, actions, goals -- and the machine produces the "how", writing the code that satisfied each user's request by interweaving developer-provided components. The result is a system that is easier to create and maintain, while providing an end-user experience that is more intelligent and adaptable to users' individual needs. In this technical talk, we will show concrete examples of this software trend applied to a next-generation conversational assistant. We will supply you with a freely downloadable development environment so that you can give this a try yourself, and start monetizing your content and services through a new channel that will be backed by more than a billion devices in just a few years.

In 2018, Whitepages expanded its identity graph data to include several new countries; due to the size of the data stores, this put unexpected strain on the existing data storage system. While we could have simply purchased another cluster with our data store service, our team took the opportunity to explore more efficient options. With a deep understanding of our data and the use cases defining how our customers use and access the data stores, our team identified ways we could optimize our data storage solution by moving the most highly accessed data to REDISLabs. This change enabled us to maintain the low latency our customers expect and implement a highly scalable storage solution, all while reducing our costs and making only minimal changes to the application code.

In an era where consumers are consistently being taken advantage of by large corporations in the name of profit, a decentralized internet network is a breath of fresh air. We need something that breaks the chokehold that internet service providers (ISPs) have on the market by giving the power back to the people. Blockchain can provide a decentralized community-driven mesh network where users themselves will own and control the network’s infrastructure. The goal is to provide everyone with access to fast, secure, private and reliable internet. We need an ecosystem built around this.

OPEN TALK - How Developers Will Drive Mainstream Adoption of Cryptocurrency
We begin to unlock the real potential of cryptocurrency when we apply it in our digital, not physical, lives. But up until now, developers, who create these digital experiences, haven’t had access to a consumer-ready cryptocurrency that can easily be integrated into mainstream apps and platforms. It is safe to say that developers hold one of the few keys to driving mass adoption of cryptocurrency, but they haven’t found the door it can unlock.

In this session, Alex Frenkel, vp of product at Kin, will explore best practices for developers building crypto-enabled consumer apps. Diving into case studies from Unity, the world’s largest game development platform, Perfect365, the leading augmented reality beauty app with millions of users, and popular chat app Kik, Frenkel will discuss the process from ideating features powered by crypto that your users will love down to the implementation stage.

The digital world is replete with a multitude of opportunities to scale several ways across architectural layers building up on a healthy mix of emerging technologies. Next-generation technologies open up avenues for creative application in real-life which translate to purposeful innovation. However, innovation must not only thrive and sustain in this ever-changing world of technology but also scale on multiple fronts. Innovation must scale across regional boundaries, architectural domains, the supply chain and most importantly, be nurtured in an ecosystem that is continuous and automated. Attend this session to see the steps you can take to fuel innovation at the crossroads of technology, business and culture.

There is a raging debate of why TDD is or is not the right approach to software development. Often individuals take positions based on their own experiences which are often very context specific. As an educator and a researcher, I have been using test-driven learning when teaching software development to my students. And I have found some striking parallels between students' learning styles and their preference or dislike towards TDD. Can these findings be generalized to a broader population of developer audience? Educators augment their teaching styles to support different learning styles. Can our approach to TDD be similarly augmented to accelerate TDD adoption? I discuss my findings and observations that address some of these questions.

A lot of developers have great software engineering skills (almost everyone makes that claim), is that enough? Hiring managers are not only concerned about your technical abilities, they also want to know how well you understand the business needs of the org. How do you translate those business needs when you make technical decisions at work? What factors do you consider when you make those decisions? How do you learn from your mistakes/failures of others? Have you come across similar situations that the business is currently dealing with? Hiring managers want to know how you communicate and about your creative thinking. In this talk we’ll go on a journey to explore why your online reputation as a Software Engineer is important and why you need to go beyond your resume/LinkedIn and GitHub profile.

You’ve got a great dev team with big goals. You know you need to innovate to stay ahead of the competition. No problem, right? But, you need to figure out the data layer. It’s really hard to keep up with everything going on in databases. What if you pick the wrong technology? What if your data grows super fast? What if you're hugged to death/go viral? What if you want to try a new database but it’s cost-prohibitive? What if a new database technology surfaces that works better for your use case? There’s a lot to consider: database types, vendor portability, cloud portability, and so much more.

Serverless and computing "at the edge" (buzzword for "geographically closer to end users") make great partners for IoT. This talk discusses how via a case study-- an 8'x10' wall of LEDs that shows Cloudflare's data centers on a world map. We managed to build it in a little over three weeks using a serverless architecture to make the data propagate live and quickly. We'll talk about how serverless works well for IoT in general based on our work with the map and serverless technologies, and if you want to see some robots, you'll wanna see this talk.

PRO TALK: Rethink Smart Contracts: Bringing Security and Scalability to All
Blockchain, particularly smart contracts, have the potential to revolutionize the future of work, but security and scalability concerns are preventing widespread blockchain adoption for entrepreneurs and enterprises. In this session, Marie Leaf, Head of Public Product at Kadena, will explain how smart contracts can change business operations for the better. Additionally, she will address the current challenges with Ethereum-based smart contract language which are easily exploitable and full of bugs, causing businesses to lose millions of dollars. With these concerns in mind, Marie will explain how open-source smart contract language, Pact, is addressing issues of security, speed and scalability found in Ethereum-based smart contracts. Pact allows users to upgrade smart contracts on the fly and fix bugs as they are discovered. Additionally, Pact supports Formal Verification which allows users to mathematically prove that their code does what it says it will - this is the same technology used in air and space auto-pilot programs. Attendees will walk away learning how business decision makers in all departments, from finance to marketing, can write secure, simple, and scalable smart contracts that are built on both public and private blockchains. The goal is to democratize blockchain technology for all, taking it out of the hands of expert coders and building accessible solutions for non-programmers running businesses.

FEATURED SPEAKER: Emerging Trends in Computer Technologies and Architecture in a Data-Centric World
Big data and fast data applications are transforming enterprise environments and driving changes in the fundamental basic technologies that make up the data center.  Richard will discuss emerging trends in computer architecture, in storage, memory, compute, and network, as well as associated changes in operating system software.  In storage, new technologies like SMR and low-latency NAND flash are driving the need for different storage interfaces and in the system software stack.  Emerging non-volatile memories likewise require new interfaces and new software mechanisms.  The RISC-V open instruction set architecture, and associated trend towards open source cores, will enable a new set of architectural opportunities, including options for large-scale in-memory, compute, for heterogeneous memory (using different types of memory in the same system), and for heterogeneous compute (combining general purpose and accelerator compute engines, sometimes within the same memory coherency domain).  These fundamental changes in the core technologies of the datacenter promise to unleash a new set of innovations in system architecture and in how difficult computational problems are solved at scale in a data-centric world.

PRO TALK: The Modern Application Security Framework
If you've determined that you need to do something about software security, how do you go about it? There are many frameworks and models that you could use (BSIMM, CSA CCM, ISO27017, etc.) but upon closer inspection, you might find these to be extremely long, overly complicated, and can be challenging to implement. Web apps have become more complex, cloud apps are increasingly API driven, and code is being deployed faster and faster. The attack surface has changed and traditional application security has evolved. Cybersecurity can seem intimidating, but it doesn't have to be. Practitioners need a straightforward runbook to guide their application security efforts. That’s why we created The Modern AppSec Framework. This talk will discuss why and how different organizations choose to invest in different software security controls and present straight forward approaches to application security.

You'll see first hand how observability has played a critical role in this small teams effort to establish a market, identify bottlenecks as they scaled, and solving real world issues utilizing real-time data analyzed from truly automatic distributed tracing. We'll reveal how Instana has enabled a single engineer to scale to hundreds of stores, and distribute over one-hundred thousand albums in their first year of operation. Finally, we'll show you how easy it is to get started with Instana in your environment.

KEYNOTE: Atlassian's Journey to Microservices
It’s easy to delay the move to a service oriented architecture and organizational structure—until you don’t have a choice. Atlassian formed and integrated it's microservices model while undergoing the largest engineering feat in company history – migrating more than 100,000 JIRA and Confluence instances to a multi-tenanted architecture on AWS. As if that wasn't enough, the team recently rebuilt the cloud version of its most popular product, Jira, on top of this new architecture and in-line with its new microservice structure. Sri Viswanath, CTO, describes the wins and challenges of these projects in the context of "microservicing out." How much monolith could be preserved? Would tech debt swallow the engineering team whole? Could they decompose everything? Learn from its experience

OPEN TALK: Agile Enough - Transitioning to Agile When Everyone Else Isn’t Agile
Many challenges and solutions exist for applying Agile software methodologies within an organization that has a traditional product release philosophy. This is particularly prevalent in B2B businesses where the customer has a large influence over the overall organization direction and has leverage to demand specific features within certain timelines. 

The goal of this session is to promote a strong agile culture even in the most difficult environments by providing insights based on real-world experiences.

Problem:

Forced delivery deadlines are quite common in small to medium businesses that are focused on growing revenues. These organizations tend to be sales-driven and focus heavily on customer retention or new customer acquisition. Typically, in these situations, executive management is not interested in the impact on the overall product strategy but focused primarily on winning the sale. This is not a bad thing, but it is a real thing that engineering leaders face; and, it causes quite a challenge when attempting to establish or maintain an Agile culture within the organization.

Since time-bound deliveries require up-front planning and estimation, a key tenant of Agile gets stressed. This is the general idea that “planning for what you don’t know” should be avoided. Another theme in Agile that doesn’t work well in these environments it the idea that you get what you get when it is ready.

This implies that you can’t really do Scrum or Kanban in its basic form in these situations because there is no room for close enough. Most of the literature on these methodologies treat this real-world problem as an exception to good Agile practice, but for many of us, it is the reality.

Study Design

This session focuses on an experience report based on personal experience of transitioning teams from structured processes to more agile processes in these traditional environments. Additionally, an extensive list of completed projects has been reviewed to determine how often this problem occurs as a way of validating the problem statement.

Conclusion

The session offers insight and tools that can be applied within an engineering leader’s environment to increase the level of agility while still maintaining a traditional product roadmap. The goal in these situations is to be “Agile Enough!”.

EXEC TALK: Why Developers & Designers Need a Common Language (And How to Maximize Efficiency
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. These proven steps will allow you to establish a checklist for your team(s) to follow to meet milestones; predict outcomes; and promote effective communication between various stakeholders in your teams.

When Your Best Developers Leave, Does Their Knowledge About Your Code Leave With Them? (EXEC TALK)
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.

OPEN TALK: DevProject - reshift
reshift is a software development tool that is designed to identify security vulnerabilities within the software development life cycle. Software developers are smart and passionate about building revolutionary products with the highest levels of quality. Unfortunately, sometimes development teams can become a bottleneck within the organization. A small group of people holds the responsibility of meeting the demands for feature requests, meeting schedule, continue shipping innovative products while supporting existing ones. They are inundated with requests from sales teams, marketing teams, product management teams, and even supply chain to produce deliverables. The growing trend is to further push cybersecurity and defensive programming into these already resource-constrained teams. reshift was designed with the developer workflow in mind, understanding the pain points of these teams to push out software as quickly as possible while keeping a high level of quality. reshift integrates with three of the major cloud repository providers, and provides seamless integration into a software project's build system. As the continuous integration framework builds a software project, reshift scans to determine if new vulnerabilities are added. reshift understands that security tools and static code analysis is not perfect, and over time learns, based on user actions, what types of vulnerabilities are actually true and which ones are false positives; this is achieved by applying machine learning to semantic analysis. reshift also is designed with tight integration with the development workflow and is proud to announce that it is one of the first products to integrate with Atlassian's v3 support for Jira Cloud.

OPEN TALK: OSS Management - Best Practices in 2019

With the delivery speed and value gained in software engineering from utilizing community driven services, it's easy to get bogged down in open source license management. A lot of this work aggregating your open source licenses in an audit manually is really unnecessary and there are easy workflow adjustments to alleviate this. And having a single developer committing with a permissive license might make your entire codebase free and open source. Not that there's anything is wrong with that!

In this talk, Xin and Zach from FOSSA will go over best practices in open source license management and how to restore valuable engineering resources to forward facing goals.

PRO TALK: CI/CD: Not Just Deploying More Often
Why move to CI/CD? What is it that you want to accomplish? How do you start to make the move without compromising quality? When Lucidchart started looking into CI/CD, we found a lot of articles and blog posts on the ideal end result but very little information, if any, about how to start or how to get there. One thing that we knew for sure was that we couldn’t budge on the quality of what was deployed. Lucidchart isolated specific low-risk services to build a CI/CD process around. Once we had the tools and processes in place, we expanded those tools and processes to support our more complex services. Working with QA along the way was essential because they are the experts in ensuring quality. CI/CD requires a mindset change. In many cases the testing that occurs simply needs to be moved to a different part of the process. For Lucidchart, this change has been a huge success. We went from having around 25 releases a month to releasing thousands of times per month with fewer bugs making it to production. Learn about the principles of CI/CD with practical examples of how to get from the status quo to extracting the value of CI/CD.

KEYNOTE: A New Model of Knowledge Assessment and AI Adaptive Learning
In this talk, Dr. Dan Bindman will describe a powerful new multi-dimensional model for knowledge assessment and learning that he is now working to implement with Yixue Squirrel AI Learning for their adaptive learning products. This new model gives extremely accurate and high resolution predictions at the highest granularity level: after a student has answered only 20 to 25 questions in a given product, the system can accurately predict the student’s probability of answering each question in the product at the current time. And unlike systems such as ALEKS, the model does not require Knowledge Structures linking the topics, saving a huge amount of costs compared to adaptive learning systems that require this step. It also can be used “out of the box” with any mix of question formats (free response or multiple choice) from any mix of subject areas without any content tweaking. Finally, all results so far indicate each student’s knowledge (as represented by the model) can be accurately updated as the student learns and works on questions in the product without the need of periodic reassessments, eliminating a big “pain point” for students that occur with many adaptive learning systems. The results from a real-world large-scale application of the model will be given to show the model’s unprecedented accuracy and predictive power.
