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.

FEATURED SPEAKERS: Decrypting Tech Hype for the Busy Coder
It seems like there is a new technology trend, development methodology, or deployment tool coming out every day and if you aren’t using it you are labeled as deprecated, legacy, or a technology dinosaur. Come hear straight talk about the latest trends such as blockchain, chatbots, serverless, CD pipelines, AI, and machine learning. In 25 minutes you will know more than your average redditor, and you can shut down tweet-driven development in your workplace once and for all.

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.

FEATURED SPEAKER: A DevOps State of Mind: Continuous Security with Kubernetes
With the rise of DevOps, containers are at the brink of becoming a pervasive technology in Enterprise IT to accelerate application delivery for the business. When it comes to adopting containers in the enterprise, Security is the highest adoption barrier. Is your organization ready to address the security risks with containers for your DevOps environment?  In this presentation, you'll learn about:

  • Best practices for addressing the top container security risks in a  container environment including images, builds, registry, deployment, hosts, network, storage, APIs, monitoring & logging, and federation.
  •  Automating and integrating security vulnerability management & compliance checking for container images in a DevOps CI/CD pipeline
  • Deployment strategies for deploying container security updates including recreate, rolling, blue/green, canary and a/b testing.
