Continuous Delivery in Practice: A Hands-On DevOps Workshop

Add to calendar
Monday, June 8, 2020 - 9:00am to 5:00pm

For many organizations, delivering software into production has become increasingly more complex with long testing cycles and a division between development and operations teams. DevOps is a cultural movement that is breaking down those barriers. Focusing on automation, collaboration, tools, and knowledge sharing, DevOps is showing that developers and system engineers have much to learn from each other. Through a series of hands-on exercises, Danilo Sato will use a sample web application to demonstrate how to automate its build and deployment pipeline, using infrastructure and pipeline as...

Test Design for CI/CD Delivery

Monday, June 8, 2020 - 9:00am to 12:30pm

Imagine this … As soon as any developed functionality is submitted into the code repository, it is automatically subjected to the appropriate battery of tests and then released straight into production. Setting up the pipeline capable of doing just that is becoming more and more common and something you need to know about. But most organizations hit the same stumbling block—just what IS the appropriate battery of tests? Automated build architectures don't always lend themselves well to the traditional stages of testing. In this hands-on tutorial, Melissa Benua introduces you to key...

I've Got a Secret (and I Don't Even Know What it is)

Keeping secrets out of source code has always been challenging. De-coupling sensitive information like connection strings, certificates and passwords from your development projects means you won't have accidental exposure. .Net Core now provides a rich configuration system that goes far beyond the legacy web.config appSettings. This is great for development and debugging, but how do we manage configuration when it is time to go to production? In this hands-on workshop we will first configure a local application to pull configuration from various sources. Explore in-depth learning of...

Continuous Testing with Containers

Monday, June 8, 2020 - 1:30pm to 5:00pm

Containers. Every manager thinks they want them, but few teams have experience in knowing what to DO with them. Used thoughtfully, containerization of your services can transform the way your organization thinks about testing. Gone can be the days of maintaining X different compute environments with Y different configurations. Imagine instead spinning up just the code you need, on the machine type it needs, and only for as long as you need it. In this technical training, Melissa will walk through what containerization means for a legacy code base attempting to practice continuous...

Agile Project Failures: Root Causes and Corrective Actions

Add to calendar
Tuesday, June 9, 2020 - 9:00am to 12:30pm

Agile initiatives always begin with high expectations—accelerate delivery, meet customer needs, and improve software quality. The truth is that many agile projects do not deliver on some or all of these expectations. If you want help to ensure the success of your agile project or to get an agile project back on track, this tutorial is for you. Jeffery Payne discusses the most common causes of agile project failure and how you can avoid these issues or mitigate their damaging effects. Poor project management, ineffective requirements development, failed communications, software development...

DataOps: Eliminating Data Friction in DevOps

Add to calendar
Thursday, June 11, 2020 - 10:00am to 11:00am

The DevOps movement has led to the adoption of continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD) in the application delivery pipeline. The end goal of establishing a CI/CD pipeline is to achieve a continuous "flow" of releases as new features get built, integrated, tested, and deployed to production-like environments, and eventually to production. This flow depends on the continuous integration and delivery of small batches of code for database and environment changes. Data friction results from the inability to have the right data provisioned to the right environment when it is...

Lessons Learned Moving to Trunk-Based Development

Add to calendar
Thursday, June 11, 2020 - 4:45pm to 5:45pm

Moving from a branching model, such as GitFlow, to trunk-based development isn't trivial or easy, but it is definitely worth the effort if increasing release velocity is your goal. Craig Sebenik led the transition to “trunk dev” at a couple of companies after being involved in a massive project at LinkedIn. Join Craig as he describes trunk dev and gives his perspective on the scenarios where the different flavors work best. Discuss what you lose by moving away from a branching model and what you gain with trunk dev, and why that transition will set up the team for future growth and faster...
