This webinar focuses on the aspects of Docker and Containers that can help you in the development lifecycle of your applications. By utilizing containers you can save time and simplify your development workflow. The benefits you will learn about range from frictionless onboarding of new developers, consistent environments, saving time in managing workstations and dependencies to quickly adapting to new requirements. You will understand the challenges of developing applications within containers and techniques to overcome them. After this session, you will understand:
- How to utilize containers to speed up your development process and free up resources
- Where to start and how to drive progress on integrating containers into your development workflow
- Challenges you might encounter along the way and techniques to overcome them
- The ways containers will shape how you think about application and infrastructure design
Julian is a Software Engineer, Online Educator, and Container Enthusiast. He automates all the things and containerizes Ruby applications at day. At night he sleeps. In between those times, he is busy climbing, hiking and teaching people about Docker and Containers at LearnDocker.online. His current life goal is to drastically reduce the time he sits per day.
Arnoud Berghuis, Founder of the Blockchain Knowledge Foundation (BKS)
In this talk, you will learn how managers or lawyers & accountants can write and read error free blockchain themselves using a higher natural programming language. Smart contracts are like real contracts, once referred to in the consideration of a real contract, there is a need to understand the smart contract.
OLE Natural blockchain language enables managers to produce error free executable blockchain code faster. The compiler does the work, generates executable Solidity for Ethereum or Quorum blockchains. More important than speed is that OLE makes that lawyers or managers can understand (R/W/Validate) blockchains and that code is error free. Blockchain is write only, hence errors cannot be removed!
OLE comes with a simple 2 STEP methodology to grantee ERROR FREE code: First, the OLE natural language input texts can be validated for correctness by domain experts. Second, compiler does the work and compiles to executable blockchain. The authors highlight further the need for a semantic blockchain.

Preparing functional test automation for Continuous Integration
Harriet Jamieson, BrightTALK and Matthew Lamons and Paul Heirendt, Skejul
In this episode of Founders Spotlight, Matthew Lamons and Paul Heirendt, Co-Founders of Skejul, share how they started the AI driven, Blockchain-protected Calendar Assistant application.
Skejul was named “Cool Vendor for Unified Communications 2017” by Gartner, Inc, and enables its users to set meetings in seconds without sharing calendars, bouncing emails, or disclosing private information. It also lets users see all planned and potential events in one place, on any device and lets you share your time, thoughts and activities with whoever you choose, wherever you are.
Learn from industry-leading Cloud Strategist Jeffrey Deverter how to modernize your applications using continuous deployment and continuous integration on the Cloud.
Jeffrey will discuss a methodology that will enable you to modernize applications to reap several business benefits - including Agile improvements, transparency into the true cost of ownership of application operation - and share advice on how to drive business value and the direction of applications.
Behavior Driven Development (BDD) has many benefits, including quicker development cycles, increased automation, better collaboration between departments and reduced siloed communication. But for all the benefits, organizations are still hesitant to transition to BDD because of the changes on their people, processes and tools.
In this webinar, we’ll explain a successful framework for evaluating your readiness for BDD, considering your potential roadblocks and making a seamless transition.
