  • 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.

We've all seen lots of pictures of cyborgs, Alexas, and self-driving cars, but very little information about how AI is really going to change test creation, running tests, reviewing results, setting up test environments, and all the other activities testers do today. This presentation describes 4 concrete ways AI is changing testing, so you can start making use of the cool real technologies that are available today, and planning how you're going to use these technologies to transform testing in your team.

  • Memory based computing voor databases en andere moderne (research-)applicaties
    Memory based computing voor databases en andere moderne (research-)applicaties Sander de Jong, Solution Architect, HPE Sep 26 2018 12:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Nieuwe technolnologieën zoals HPE Proliant Persistent memory kunnen de systeemperformance drastisch verbeteren. Er wordt vaak gedacht dat deze nieuwe technologie alleen geschikt is voor grote enterprise omgevingen, databases of specialistische applicaties. In deze sessie gaan we dieper in op HPE Persistent memory oplossingen voor allerlei soorten omgevingen. Ondek de mogelijkheden van onbeperkte hoeveelheden geheugen, waarbij informatie ook nog eens persistant kan zijn (d.w.z. dat de info bij stroomuitval bewaard blijft). En wat betekent memory based computing voor o.a. de verwerkingssnelheid en kosten?
  • 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
  • Greenlake - Hybrid IT as a Service
    Greenlake - Hybrid IT as a Service Ronald Klaasse van HPE Sep 26 2018 1:30 pm UTC 60 mins
    IT-teams staan onder een steeds hogere druk om oplossingen snel, maar tegen lage kosten en risico’s te leveren. De verschuiving naar Hybride IT in een consumptiemodel en ‘everything-as-a-service’ versnelt weliswaar de business, maar zorgt ook voor minder controle bij de IT-afdeling. Daarom hebben bedrijven ook on-premises flexibele infrastructuuromgevingen nodig, met cloudachtige mogelijkheden voor workloads. HPE GreenLake biedt klanten de keuzes waar workloads geplaatst worden en hoe ze flexibel in een pay-per-use & service-led model afgenomen kunnen worden. In deze sessie vertelt Ronald Klaasse u welke mogelijkheden er zijn en wat de voordelen daarvan zijn.

  • 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.
  • Intelligent Automation for Point of Sale Systems

    Customer experience in retail is always the #1 priority. Though the focus is heavily on e-commerce and digital, point of sale systems are as significant as any feature when ensuring a smooth shopping experience for your customer. However, the increasing complexity of point of sale makes it a challenge to test, especially considering it must integrate with a number of other systems such as payment processing, rewards programs, mobile ordering, order fulfillment, and more.

    Join our webinar to learn about true test automation for point of sale, and how end to end testing can ensure amazing digital experiences for your customers.
