Building big business value by using small Lambdas Mark Schwartz

Serverless is not just a technology – it is a new way of thinking about delivering business value. It puts us deeply into the world where compute and IT platform in general are utilities; a world where we can make granular decisions about how to invest and what returns to expect. It eliminates waste (unused server capacity, for example) and makes it easier for DevOps teams to take ownership of costs and returns as well as the usual technical performance characteristics. In this talk I will discuss how serverless lets us think differently about IT investments and the delivery of business value.

9:55 - 10:40

Serverless Functions in the Azure Cloud Rainer Stropek

Ten years ago, Azure started with a strong focus on PaaS. No wonder that Serverless has also become super important in Microsoft’s cloud recently. Rainer Stropek has been using Azure since the days of the first technical previews. In this session, Rainer will introduce you to Azure Functions, one of the Serverless offerings in Azure. Instead of speaking about theory, Rainer will walk you through an end-to-end sample and use it to describe the inner workings of Azure Function’s programming model. No slides, just code, a session for Microservice developers who want to know how things work and how they can benefit from Azure in practice.

10:50 - 11:35

Taking Serverless to the Next Level Danilo Poccia

Moving to serverless brings more benefits if you can optimize the way you work. In this session, I share best practices on different areas, from infrastructure management to deployments, distributed architectures and the role of teams, focusing on people and processes that are at the core of software development. To support our findings, we’ll review customer case studies to see what they did, why, and which benefits they got most.

11:45 - 12:30

Visualizing Serverless Cloud Systems Lynn Langit

Cloud-native systems increasingly integrate services, or functions. Microservices and serverless patterns produce many small parts. See how effective visualization matters in solution design and implementation. Understand emergent visualization by example. See future directions around dynamic distributed system visualizations.

12:30 - 13:30

Lunch Break

13:30 - 14:15

V8, Web Assembly, and Serverless -- a new way of thinking about edge computing Mx. Kas Perch

Let’s chat about our approach to serverless: how using the V8 engine and running user functions in isolates decreases overhead and eliminates cold starts. Let’s talk about how we leverage JS APIs and features like WebAssembly to allow you to run the code you need, where you need it.

14:25 - 15:10

From Development To Production: The Many Uses Of Serverless Observability Emrah Şamdan

Serverless observability is useful while understanding stateless distributed architectures. It’s crucial not only after production but especially for dev and test phases. It’s required for small applications as well as big serverless architectures. Join to learn how it’s applied at different phases.

15:20 - 16:05

Troubleshooting Serverless applications, challenges, and best practices Erez Berkner

Software does not always work as smoothly as we would like. In order to know if something went wrong, understand the root cause and fix the problem, we need to monitor our system and get alerts whenever issues pop up. There are many useful tools and practices for on-prem and EC2 based applications. As we adopt serverless architecture can we continue to use the same practices? Unfortunately, the answer is no.

16:15 - 17:00

Farley's Laws Dave Farley

We are not as smart as we think we are. Even us software developers!! What we think of as reality isn't. When we think we are being rational, we are not. When we listen to experts and trust in their wisdom, we are fooling ourselves. Meanwhile, software development is one of the more complex tasks that we mere mortals undertake. So what does it really take to overcome the limitations of our biology? How do we overcome our desire to jump to conclusions and guess at solutions? This mildly humorous, entertaining talk explores some of the fallibilities inherent in our biology and addresses what it takes to solve genuinely complex problems in the face of our propensity to make wild guesses? To put it another way, what do you need to understand to completely grasp how agile, lean development, DevOps and Continuous Delivery really work?
