  • The Five Dirty Words of CI
    The Five Dirty Words of CI J. Paul Reed, Consultant, Release Engineering Approaches Recorded: Jan 17 2018 46 mins
    "Blameless postmortems" and "learning from failure" are very en vogue in the technology industry right now. Both fall into that less-discussed category of "CI": Continuous Improvement. But for as much as we all talk about them, in many organizations and teams, the outcome of continuous organizational learning and improvement remains elusive. Why is this?

    In this talk, we'll look at five "dirty words" that are often thrown around during postmortems, retrospectives, and other learning exercises that not only make it difficult for teams to discuss learning, but promote activities and behaviors that are actually counterproductive to continuous improvement. We'll dig into the existing research on why this is and look at different language we can use to facilitate sustainable Continuous Improvement in our work environments.

  • Beyond RSpec: Innovative Strategies for Confident CI
    Beyond RSpec: Innovative Strategies for Confident CI Kevin Paulisse, Site Reliability Engineer, GitHub Jan 18 2018 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Continuous Integration (CI) testing provides instant feedback as you develop Puppet code. While it’s great that your rspec-puppet and beaker tests pass using fixtures and stubs, you can get a false sense of security from unanticipated edge cases, unrealistic assumptions, or the lack of complete coverage. You may be tempted to address these limitations by writing even more tests, but that would only exacerbate your frustration. Instead, you could use some alternate techniques to make your CI pipeline predict real-world behavior more accurately, and thereby gain confidence in your test results.

    In this session, we will explore some less traditional yet more powerful techniques for automated testing of Puppet code, and will explore how GitHub scaled these strategies to test hundreds of unique combinations while keeping build times reasonable. You will leave this session with fresh ideas to improve your CI pipeline, which will lead to confident and reliable deployments.
  • Playing Through the Pain: Strategies for Working in the Real World
    Playing Through the Pain: Strategies for Working in the Real World Richard Thieme, Author and Professional Speaker Jan 18 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    After 25 years of speaking and writing about the impacts of technologies on “the human in the machine,” Richard Thieme documented the traumatic consequences for security and intelligence professionals of swimming in dark and turbulent waters that challenged our abilities, our ethos, and sometimes our very identity. Who we thought we were came up against what we had to do and the friction threw off sparks.

    This webinar goes beyond those stories to explore in particular how what dominant cultures call “minorities” manage their unique challenges. Thieme has uncharacteristically lived as “a minority” in five different ways and the dynamics and resultant strategies he had learned port seamlessly to the experience of others. There’s more to it than “playing through the pain” - there’s real gold in discovering our capacities for the resilience, power, and self-transcendence intrinsic to the human condition.

    Beginning with the “real facts” of the matter, Thieme draws on his experience to suggest ways to make this game a long distance run, not a sprint, and not lose our selves along the way.

  • The Dr. Seuss Guide to Code Craftsmanship
    The Dr. Seuss Guide to Code Craftsmanship Emily Freeman, Application Engineer, Kickbox Jan 18 2018 6:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    When you think of Dr. Seuss, writing code probably isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. But if you dig deeper, you’ll notice there’s a gem hidden in all his children’s rhymes. You see, Dr. Seuss would have made an excellent engineer. Because great code isn’t about choosing the perfect method name or building out 95% test coverage. All that is great, but it doesn’t make great code. YOU DO.

    This talk will focus on common pitfalls along the development lifecycle and distill Dr. Seuss’s excellent advice into concise steps developers can take before they write a single line of code.

    We’ve heard it before: “I can’t use the cloud because my data won’t be secure or compliant!” You might feel the same. Many companies struggle with this challenge, yet even government agencies with the strictest data privacy requirements use the cloud.

    In today’s rapidly changing world, how can you tell which clouds and cloud types are right for your organization’s needs, now and in the future? Wouldn’t it be great to use a public cloud for more workloads, even those with sensitive data and compliance requirements?

    In our webcast, "You Put Your Data Where? Protecting Your Data in the Hybrid Cloud," we will share how public organizations with strict data privacy regulations leverage and deploy hybrid cloud to meet their business needs. NetApp’s partner 1901 Group will speak about a government law enforcement agency that has deployed hybrid cloud to gain better access to compute capabilities while keeping legal data under lock and key. Additionally, BriteSky, a Canada-based service provider, will discuss how they help customers use cloud resources and still maintain sovereignty over their corporate data.

    Whether you’re a public or private company, government agency, U.S.-based or multinational organization, this informative webcast will help you put your data where it's accessible to cloud infrastructures yet fully protected. Join us to learn how NetApp and our partners help people like you meet data compliance and data sovereignty requirements and deploy cloud architectures to suit your business needs.

  • Machine Learning and Microsegmentation
    Machine Learning and Microsegmentation John O'Neil, Edgewise Chief Data Scientist Jan 18 2018 7:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    “Make the trust zones smaller” is the rallying cry behind microsegmentation projects. Break up the network into smaller pieces and put firewalls in between those pieces to ensure attackers can’t get from one part of the network to the next. But making microsegmentation projects work relies on a great deal of knowledge of the network and attack pathways. And it’s an incredibly heavy lift–configuring and deploying a microsegmentation solution takes an immense amount of time and resources. Machine learning can significantly reduce the hurdles by learning the network’s intended state and defining the attack pathways that need to be secured, automating the microsegmentation process.

    Edgewise’s Chief Data Scientist John O’Neil will deep-dive into the role of machine learning in microsegmentation and demonstrate how a machine learning driven solution could reduce the time and energy needed to deploy microsegmentation from months to hours.

  • A Simple Plan for a Motivated & Engaged Development Team
    A Simple Plan for a Motivated & Engaged Development Team Rick Tywoniak, Sr. Director, Cisco Jan 18 2018 8:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Every manager wants to lead a team that is engaged and motivated, but not every manager knows how to create the environment that a happy dev team needs. Developers are lifelong self-learners, easily frustrated when stuck in a role with no opportunity to learn new technologies and broaden their skill set. Leveraging automation and tools within a DevOps culture is one way to help free up time for us to focus on work that is more interesting and also allow us to continue to build our skill set.

    In this session, Rick Tywoniak will share his own experience as a developer and now a team leader, providing insight into how you can help your manager better understand what you need in order to stay motivated, engaged and happy.
