14:05: Re-defining DevOps rules for remote hardware developmentRead More

Aneesh Bendre, Lead Software QA, Sense Photonics

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.

14:55: KEYNOTE: SEEKING A WIDER CONTEXT FOR LOW CODE Read More

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.

Adarsh Mehrotra, Industry Principal Consultant, Infosys

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.

Jon Scheele, Director, Blue Connector

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.

Sudeep Chatterjee, Head Of QA And Testing, London Stock Exchange

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.

14:05: Cloud-Native CICD done rightRead More

Ion Mudreac, Director Cloud Development and DevOps/SRE, Singtel

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.

Sohan Maheshwar, Senior Developer Advocate, Amazon Web Services

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.

Seb Rose, Continuous Improvement Lead, SmartBear

Seb Rose, Continuous Improvement Lead, SmartBear

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?
