    Topic Abstract

    Pods in Kubernetes are a key building block for higher-level patterns. One such pattern is sidecar pattern in which the functionality of the main container is extended by a sidecar container without strong coupling between two. The sidecar container is co-scheduled with main application container inside a pod. In this talk, we will discuss how sidecar pattern has emerged as the swiss-army knife for microservices. Using a reusable sidecar container you can inject endpoint security to observability to service discovery into your existing microservice deployment without changing a single line of code. With sidecars, possibilities are endless - endpoint security, observability, traffic management including resilience and much more.

    Topic Abstract

    A report was released in 2018 that highlighted the large differences of service delivery between the elite and low performing organisations. Amongst the stats, performance metrics and recommendations is a valuable message; an integral part of becoming an elite performing organisation is creating, and using meaningful Automated Tests. Automated Testing is usually thought of something that is testing the Functional Requirements of something. However, it can also for testing the Non-functional Requirements of a system. And more recently, can be used in enhancing synthetic monitoring.

    This talk focusses on two areas that are an often overlooked aspect of software delivery; security and synthetic monitoring, and how both of these relate to the quality of a product. And more importantly how "shifting left and right" on these two areas can increase the quality of a product - increasing value for customers and the software development team, as well as benefitting the wider business.

    Khoa Bui, Senior Developer, CompliSpace

    Topic Abstract

    There are many challenges working as a software developer in legislation environment. You have lawyers who lack the technical knowledge and understanding of what you do. You have deadlines which you are expected to build and deploy software quickly and effectively. You also have the challenge of gathering requirements from a boardroom filled with managers, CEOS, sales people, lawyers and associates. In this talk, I’ll discuss the technical / non technical solutions I used to build software in a legalisation environment which enabled me to go from a PHP developer to a Business Systems Analyst within 12 months.
