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...

Finding Performance Issues Early with JMeter

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

Performance issues can be difficult to resolve when found late in the software development lifecycle. Using an open-source tool like JMeter to develop, manage, and execute load and performance tests while the code is being developed, is an inexpensive way to help find performance issues. Executing these performance tests as part of your CI/CD pipeline enables users to find and resolve performance issues as soon as they are introduced. This hands-on workshop will help attendees develop a foundational understanding of JMeter, while engaging them in creating and running performance tests...

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...

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...

Using Security Chaos Engineering to Build Protected, Resilient Systems

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

The speed and scale of complex system operations within cloud-driven architectures make them extremely difficult for humans to mentally model their behavior. This often results in unpredictable and catastrophic outcomes that become costly when unexpected security incidents occur. There is a need to realign the actual state of operational security measures in order to maintain an acceptable level of confidence that our security actually works when we need it to. As an alternative to simply reacting to failures, the security industry has been overlooking valuable chances to further...

You’re starting at a new company. You’re beginning a greenfield project. Your agile transformation is calling for a tech revolution. You’re part of a testing center of excellence. Or your needs just aren’t being met anymore. Whatever the reason, you’re in the market for new testing tools, you have all the freedom in the world ... and you have no idea what you’re doing. Shopping for new tools is not unlike dating. You need to ask yourself the same questions: “What am I looking for?” “Do they fit in with the picture I have for my future?” “Will they get along with my friends and colleagues...
