  • Scaling Collective Code Ownership & Code Reviews at LinkedIn - Nikolai Avteniev
    Scaling Collective Code Ownership & Code Reviews at LinkedIn - Nikolai Avteniev Nikolai Avteniev - Software Engineer, LinkedIn Live 60 mins
    The contemporary code review practice has been adopted by many organizations and open source projects as a quality assurance measure. This process typically involves software tools such as Review Board and the time of one or more peer reviewers.

    However, there is a growing body of empirical research about this broadly‐adopted practice that can help us learn more about the effects of code reviews on software quality. Available research shows that in fact, peer code reviews are better suited for knowledge sharing and code improvements, rather than for eliminating code defects or reducing error rates. The effectiveness of the process seems to depend on the experience of the reviewer with the code, the size of the change set, and the rate at which the review is conducted.

    In this talk, Nikolai will share how the LinkedIn Flagship Product Engineering team leverages the code review process to spread organizational knowledge and uplevel individual contributors. I will also discuss the tools we’ve built to support this practice across a team which spans three offices, four development stacks, dozens of teams, and hundreds of individual contributors.

  • Edge Computing: the opportunity behind distributing    capabilities
    Edge Computing: the opportunity behind distributing capabilities Gabriele Roberti, Douglas Hayward, Bruno Teyton, Helena Schwenk, Chris Barnard and Giorgio Nebuloni Sep 26 2018 1:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Delocalizing intelligence to edge locations seems counterintuitive in the Cloud era, but history has proven to be cyclical also in the IT world. In the last months, “Edge” has been a skyrocketing buzzword, to highlight the fact that transmitting and elaborating data into “the Core” is not always the best choice. As found in recent IDC research, IoT users in Europe have a mixed approach to data processing and are almost equally split between processing data on-premises within a centralized platform (37%) and processing data at the edge on sensors and devices (36%). At the same time, all kind of vendors and Service Providers in the IT space are now adding “Edge” capabilities to their portfolios.

    In this IDC Web Conference Gabriele Roberti, Douglas Hayward, Bruno Teyton from the Edge Computing working team will give an overview on the European Edge Computing scenario, and how this is impacting on and relating to other technologies, like the Internet of Things.

    Some of the key points to be discussed in this webcast will be:

    1. What is “the Edge” and how to classify different types of Edge

    2. How different Edge models intersect with industry deployments and different use cases in Europe

    3. Telcos and edge: unlocking new revenue opportunities and enabling 5G use cases in distributed architectures

    4. Some European real-life implementations of Edge Computing and how the Edge paradigm is paving the way to new opportunities for both end-users and vendors
  • How to Protect Cloud-Based APIs from Data Scrapers and Cloned Apps
    How to Protect Cloud-Based APIs from Data Scrapers and Cloned Apps David Stewart - Co-Founder, CriticalBlue and Stephen Gorton -Technical Architect, Racing Post Sep 26 2018 3:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    If you are deploying APIs, even private ones, you are leaving your revenue stream open to exploitation. APIs are a window into your business and if there is a way to make a gain from abusing that API, someone will do it. Worse, thousands of people or thousands of bots may do it.

    The art of keeping scripts and bots from abusing your APIs requires you to validate that the incoming traffic is coming from an authentic client. Merely authenticating users may not be appropriate or may not be enough. When the remote client is a mobile app and you know that mobile devices should not be trusted, achieving the authentication goal is easier said than done.

    This session will explain how Racing Post launched a feature-rich API and a new native mobile app and managed to protect their valuable data from API scrapers and their brand reputation from cloned apps. We will cover their experiences with bots, their approach to the problem and how they solved it.

    Whether you are a mobile or API developer, an enterprise system architect, or even a product owner with strong mobile revenue, you'll want to hear this story.

  • One bad API(L) can ruin the entire user experience
    One bad API(L) can ruin the entire user experience Bryan Whitmarsh, Sr. Director, Product Management for CA Technologies Agile Operations Business Unit Sep 26 2018 4:00 pm UTC 105 mins
    Applications these days are not self-contained. They are dynamically reading and writing content leveraging hundreds of internal and 3rd party application program interfaces (APIs). This allows applications of all kinds like Mobile, Web, or Wearable apps to provide a vibrant experience. However, if just one of the APIs the application leverage isn’t available, is slow to respond, or is returning the incorrect data, the outcome can be a frowny-faced user who can have a dramatic impact on the business. In this session, we will walk you through the fundamentals of API monitoring and how Runscope can help you to improve API uptime, performance, and data integrity.

  • How to Achieve a DevSecOps Culture Using a Lean-Agile Approach
    How to Achieve a DevSecOps Culture Using a Lean-Agile Approach Larry Maccherone, DevSecOps Transformation Leader at Comcast Sep 27 2018 6:00 am UTC 60 mins
    There are a lot of DevSecOps offerings that are just DevOps lipstick on a traditional security-as-a-gate pig. Also, security specialists, especially at large organizations, believe that better security comes from robust independent gating. On the other hand, DevOps has proven that you can safely deploy an order of magnitude or more faster than human gating can achieve.

    What's needed to add security to DevOps are tools that work well with rapid-cycle CI/CD pipelines and an approach that reinforces the DevOps culture and process changes. This requires that security specialists become self-service toolsmiths and coaches and stop thinking of their jobs as gatekeepers.

    Join Larry Maccherone, an industry-recognized thought leader on Lean/Agile, Analytics, and DevSecOps, as he introduces a framework to accomplish this mindset shift. It includes guidance on the characteristics of tools compatible with DevOps. It has been successfully used in a large DevSecOps transformation at Comcast and has gained recognition in DevSecOps circles as a leading framework.
  • Expert-Talk: Hybride SAP-Landschaften, Digitalisierung & neue Teststrategien
    Expert-Talk: Hybride SAP-Landschaften, Digitalisierung & neue Teststrategien Christian Schütz & Thomas Köppner, Micro Focus Sep 27 2018 8:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Helge Sanden, Chefredakteur des IT-Onlinemagazins (https://it-onlinemagazin.de/, moderiert das Gespräch mit den Experten zu diesem Thema von Micro Focus.

    Dauer und Aufwände für Tests werden oft unterschätzt und herkömmliche Methoden und Verfahren führen nicht mehr zum gewünschten Erfolg: Systemlandschaften sind prozessual extrem miteinander verflochten, teilweise in der Cloud, hybrid und komplex - sowohl im Back-End als auch im Front-End. Regelmäßige Updates und Security-Patches machen Tests zur systemkritischen Daueraufgabe und führen zu permanent wiederkehrenden Aufwänden, für die in Fachbereichen die Kapazitäten fehlen.

    Mittlerweile lassen sich bestehende Prozesse und neue Funktionen kaum noch manuell mit der notwendigen Tiefe testen. SAP ist nicht mehr das alleinige System und die zunehmende Digitalisierung entlang der Prozessketten wird die Notwendigkeit automatisierter End-to-End Tests in hybriden Landschaften zusätzlich verschärfen.

    Welche Antwortmöglichkeiten es für diese Herausforderungen gibt, sollen in diesem Expert Talk vertieft werden. An einem Anwenderbeispiel sehen Sie, wie man in der Praxis eine Teststrategie verändert hat und dabei die komplexen produktiven Landschaften - samt Schnittstellen, Webservices, Systemübergangen, Diensten, mobilen Endgeräten und Cloud-Produkten - möglichst gut abbilden kann. Automatisierung, Virtualisierung und Nutzung vorkonfigurierter Testumgebungen aus der Cloud können hierbei zu großen Produktivitätsschüben führen.

    Unser Anliegen ist es, Ihnen Ideen für Veränderungen im Testmanagement aufzuzeigen, die Aufwände reduzieren, Zeit sparen und die Testqualität verbessern können.

    Wir freuen uns auf Ihre Teilnahme!
  • Data Privacy– Why your company should know what’s behind the compliance curtain!
    Data Privacy– Why your company should know what’s behind the compliance curtain! Jeff Hughes CA Technologies, Alan Shimel DevOps.com Sep 27 2018 8:00 am UTC 48 mins
    Data Privacy has once again vaulted to the forefront with Facebook and other large companies grappling with data breaches and the use (or misuse) of personal data. We are charting new frontiers in data privacy and legislation alone will not mitigate the data challenges that lay ahead. Brand loyalty and brand trust can take years to build, but can be lost in an instant with one data privacy misstep. There are a number of regulatory challenges facing enterprises globally that need to be considered as well including The US Patriot Act and the upcoming GDPR requirement
