In the last two decades, almost every business sector has changed and have investigated how to adopt and use new practices. They have changed their focus in development, testing so that “stuff works as it should” and their building their operational capabilities to become customer facing with emphasis on actual business value and revenue.
Technology too, in the business landscape is ever-evolving as business challenges have become increasingly complex. To keep up, organisations must build and deploy innovative, timely solutions. Low Code, a new visual approach to software development has been making its mark in building and delivering software solutions at speed.
The focus of the conference is on finding methods and tools for business value through the adoption of Agile, DevOps and Testing and well-built software. This transformation depends on significant changes in culture, roles & responsibilities, team structure, and tools & processes.
This event is mainly focused for participants from different countries in the APAC, IST & BST time zones. Hence the start and end times have been chosen for the convenience of these participants.

Our approach is that our events are dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity or religion. We do not tolerate intimidation, stalking, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of sessions or events, and unwelcome physical contact or sexual attention. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks, workshops, Twitter and other online media. Event participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the event without a refund at the discretion of the conference organisers. Please bring your concerns to the immediate attention of the event staff.
Diversity: In our endeavour to be the provider of knowledge to the business community, we understand that this depends on hearing from and listening to a variety of perspectives that come from people of all races, ethnicities, genders, ages, abilities, religions, sexual orientation, and military service. We welcome diverse speakers for all our events, we do not always fully achieve this goal, but it is an ongoing process.
We are inviting speakers – thought leaders, subject experts and start-up entrepreneurs – to share their knowledge and enthusiasm about their work and vision in these three fields. Please let us know too if you would like to participate in the panel sessions only.
Please complete the speaker’s response form submit a proposal to present at this event.

Non-functional requirements define the quality characteristics of a solution. It can transform a user story from good to great. We shall leverage Story cubes in this fun activity to get those creative juices flowing to uncover the most missed non-functional requirements.

Developing cutting edge smart devices involves a mix of hardware and software technology. Implementing DevOps for the device’s software often proves to be non trivial because it is tied closely to the hardware that it runs on. Also, knowing when to implement the DevOps process is critical as you want to avoid re-doing the infrastructure when the underlying hardware or software architecture changes.
Moreover, DevOps teams need to consider the availability and accessibility of the infrastructure since engineering teams are working remotely now, more than ever. Should you use the existing infrastructure (on-premise) or build out a new one? Will you have “the hardware” available for validation at all times or should you consider using a hardware emulator instead? Should you leverage cloud services or opt for a hybrid solution? The cloud is an attractive approach to get going and fairly easy to scale. But, it can become an expensive recurring cost over time and is typically a one way street. Any new DevOps planning needs to have a remote-first mindset in the current environment, even post the pandemic.
In this presentation, we will discuss DevOps deployment in the context of early-stage embedded product development. How to keep the DevOps implementation agile, scalable and in sync with the development cycle of the overall project.
Prof Dave Snowden, Director Cynefin Centre, Chief Scientific Officer Cognitive Edge
On the whole low code area, I think there is an architectural piece here about objects and assemblies which includes people and methods as well as code – work on semiotics is important here. Also work on abstraction and how you use it – we are working on a multi-vendor multi-methods approach here which includes agile. So that would set a wider context to understand how to fit better within the user environment.

Relentless business demands for new applications and software, practices and development trends such as DevOps, Agile, Cloud, AI, Automation and others, require a new paradigm in traditional security. Decisions need to be made early at scale without sacrificing security. The topic covers Safety practices covering the three pillars of People, Process & Tooling with Governance layer across SDLC to ensure consistency of the services.

Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) promote collaboration between teams and external partners by hiding the complexity of internal systems and enabling the re-use of functionality. This session shows how to apply DevOps principles to govern the designing, building, testing, deploying and maintaining of APIs critical to your firm’s operations.

DevOps is a goal for many organisations to achieve the vision of reducing end to end product development cycle time and to deliver value to business and customers faster. With advanced development practices and tools, organisations have successfully achieved CI/CD (Continuous Integration/Continuous Development) but CT (Continuous Testing) remains elusive. In this talk, I would explain how low code test automation solutions can help reach the CI/CD/CT objectives.

In recent years companies start moving a considerable amount of compute, networks, and data into the cloud. In most cases, the lift and shift model does not bring any advantages and is more expensive to run on the cloud than on-prem. Enterprises invest a considerable amount of effort in reengineering existing enterprise applications to a new cloud-native model to take advantage of cloud-native managed service and use existing cloud capabilities. Just by moving to a microservice model, the company needs to put considerable effort into designing a cloud-native CICD pipeline that can support the long-term growth of the product. In this presentation, we will cover few ways organizations can use Engineering practices starting from using the source control system, versioning up to the automated deployments, all managed in a source control system.

The main focus of the talk is, how to low-code and no-code technology can help the banking industry to achieve its business values quickly. Also will share the best practices of choosing and implementing the right tool, Framework, ROI with a case study in
the digital banking industry.

To get the most out of the agility afforded by serverless, it is essential to build CI/CD pipelines that help teams iterate on code and quickly release features. Serverless and distributed systems in production cannot be done any other way than with a good and efficient CI/CD pipeline.
In this talk, I demonstrate how you can use infrastructure-as-code (IaC) models to build effective CI/CD release workflows to manage serverless deployments on AWS, using tools like AWS CodeBuild, AWS CodePipeline, and AWS CodeDeploy. Specifically, we focus on how to automate safer deployments that can be monitored and rolled back automatically.

Everything looks solvable if you ignore most of the complications. Many things look impossible if you’re stuck in the weeds. The current fashion for low/no code solutions heralds the cyclical return to looking for solutions that require softer skillsets. When is this appropriate and when is it a recipe for disaster?
