DevOps & Microservices Showcase Dublin, 24 May 2017, Dublin

This event is co-located with Agile Showcase and Testing Showcase

DevOps now is in its seventh year of practice but the old architecture is no longer able to support the speed of delivery and so needs the additional help of Microservices and Docker for incremental change.   But adopting a new capability requires a plan that includes people, process and technology. 

Microservices architecture helps to deliver easy testing, fast and deployments and overall agility. It’s also fairly complex—so to successfully implement Microservices, you need to understand the core concepts behind this approach.

Why attend this event?

The speakers at this conference will follow the process from development to production.  They will review the trends and best practices on how to deliver by optimizing the processes with agility and speed.   They will deepen your understanding of Microservices and help to consider the pros and cons if you are thinking of using it in your organisation and if you have already migrated to this architecture, the event will help you select a service architecture to meet the challenges you are facing. 

This event is for you:

  • If you are considering using microservices for your organization and want to deepen your understanding
  • If you are migrating to a microservices architecture but need ideas on coping with issues and challenges
  • If you want to learn about other service-related architecture styles besides microservices
  • This day will engage not just existing DevOps pros, but also managers and executives like •CIOs • CISOs, • Dev & Ops managers, • business leaders and • architects who need to know what changes are needed in enterprise architecture. Also, companies going through Mergers and Acquisations will need to find out about initiatives that will increase efficiency and agility within the enterprise.  

Joint morning session with Agile &DevOps and Microservices 

Agile and DevOps: Are they a Separate conversation or a progression of capability? 

DevOps and Agile have shared environments that facilitate working together.  Both methods are more than simply adopting new tools and processes and the synergy involves building a development and a stable Continuous Integration (CI) infrastructure, as well as an automated pipeline that moves deliverables from development to production.  Both can work together and the entire build process should be transparent, and it should enable and support development and operations.  This transformation depends on: significant changes in culture; roles and responsibilities; team structure; tools and processes.

The morning session will discuss the following related topics:

  • Agile frameworks provide guidance for efficient operational software
  • Adopt a “build-and-run” teams concept
  • Improve DevOps with SAFe
  • Automation and SAFe
  • Automating for improved flow
  • The agile release train and continuous integration
  • Agile and DevOps – moving with flow based awareness
  • Mapping practices with scaled agile frameworks—SAFe,DADLeSS, and Nexus
  • Testing: “Measure twice, cut once”
  • Continuous Testing – running tests at each stage of s/w delivery pipeline. 

Topics to be covered in the afternoon session:

  • Changing culture to continuously deliver
  • Agility and speed of automation
  • Change with Containers / Dockers
  • Cloud and DevOps
  • Hybrid Clouds and Culture Clash
  • Test Automation
  • ChatOps
  • DevSecOps :
  • Microservices Architecture – Core Concepts
  • Primary benefits, and drawbacks of the Microservices architecture style
  • Techniques for transforming to a Microservices architecture

    Keynote: Agile in context: Understanding software systems as ecologies not manufacturing processes

    Dave Snowden, CTO Cognitive Edge

    Too many methods and techniques in software development are simple recipes derived from limited and partially understood cases. They treat the organisation as if it was a complicated machine rather than a highly complex and ever shifting, frequently fragile ecology. This presentation will introduce the award winning Cynefin framework and will introduce ideas from complexity science, biology and the cognitive sciences which allow us to manage conditions of inherent uncertainty.
