KEYNOTES & FEATURED

Eric Reis' "The Lean Startup" talks about the Build-Measure-Learn loop. Scrum talks about the importance of iterations. Forget deadlines. Deliver working software. This sounds great!
Sadly, the real world has deadlines - be it a launch date of a marketing campaign, a Demo day in a conference, or a Sales team that wants to commit to a customer.
How do you balance between the two? Shay Mandel has been experimenting with many different ways to do it, even since the read "eXterme Programming" in 2001. In this session, you will learn best practices that were used and tuned over the years. Whether you're a manager in a small startup or a big corporate, you'll get practical advice that you can put to work right away at your company.
KEYNOTE: PagerDuty -- How to Advocate to Not You: Non-technical Considerations for Our Technical ToolsJoin on Hopin
One of the things I struggled with as an SRE was being able really grok what non-engineers/non-devs like my manager, whomever they reported to, and various chains in my employer’s business cared about most when it came time to select tools. Depending on the size of the employer, startup to enterprise, there are increasing numbers of non-engineering folks who have decision making power over the team’s tools. Thus, as devs, ops, etc. we cannot keep our focus on just the technical aspects of different tools and frameworks or we’ll miss the opportunity to appropriately make our case to these other stakeholders. In this session, I’ll be discussing what these other groups need to know to help them make a decision in your best interest.
The number of microservices running in enterprises increases daily. As a result, service composition, governance, security, and observability are becoming a challenge to implement and incorporate. A “cell-based” architecture is an approach that can be applied to current or desired development and technologies to address these issues. This technology-neutral approach helps cloud-native dev teams become more efficient, act in a more self-organized manner, and speed overall release times.
In this talk, Asanka will introduce the "cell-based" reference architecture, which is decentralized, API-centric, cloud-native and microservices friendly. He will explain the role of APIs in the cell-based approach, as well as examine how real applications are built as cells. Asanka will explore the metrics and approaches that can be used to measure the effectiveness of the architecture and explore how organizations can implement the cell approach.

The use of modern software development methods is drastically increasing the rate of software delivery among traditional banks and breaking the view that they can only deliver software every few months. This talk will explore the impact and practices of Modern Engineering and how it has enabled Lloyds banking group to adapt to the challenges of a complex world.
Stephen Hawking predicted the 21st century would be the century of complexity, a world which is unpredictable, ever-evolving and unbounded. This complex world requires the Bank to move from the old business paradigm and mindset of controlling time, scope and cost to the Modern Engineering-led business paradigm and mindset of quality, speed and value.
Bringing it to life, we will see how the Bank applied the Modern Engineering tool-sets to improve their ability to focus on quality, speed and value. We will share examples of how modern engineering practices have helped the Consumer Servicing Value Stream within the Bank to become more adaptable and to respond to COVID19 pandemic. Lastly, we will explore what the new business paradigm of quality, speed and value means for the Executives within the Bank.
Key audience takeaways from this talk:
• Learn how Lloyds Banking Group applied a practical application of Modern Engineering in the Consumer Servicing Value Stream
• Understand the modern engineering principles to help you and your organisation adapt to our changing world
• Reflect on how to keep your skills relevant
• Reflect on whether you are clear on your products and how they deliver value to the customers
As the world changes and remote experiences emerge at the center of daily life, a central question emerges: what does it take to create an experience where all participants are remote?
Todd Greene, CEO of PubNub, will share his insight into the software and network considerations required to bring people, data, and devices together for the future of remote life.
Tune in and gain insight from the industry leader in realtime innovation. Don't miss it!
