To stay competitive and to keep innovating, Capital One is now running all their critical apps on Amazon. Target now deploys 80 times per week. Verizon closed five of its data centers in favor of 70% data center virtualization. All of these examples are companies moving through Agile transformation processes where DevOps is another milestone – but not the end. PaaS and New Stack providers see the future in Microservice Architectures that allow continuous...

Software design is often seen as the process of introducing abstractions and protocols to simplify the act of composing larger programs from smaller ones.

However, these days, hardly any complex system is a monolith and is often composed of many interacting components (services, modules, other applications etc). In addition, infrastructure-as-code tools such as Chef are as much a part of the codebase as application code. When...

The web made Agile possible. Agile made DevOps necessary. A lot has changed in the intervening years, including the sheer amount of data to manage. Developers today may have to bring down 100 GB worth of content to code an application for a device that fits in the palm of your hand. That's incredible when you consider that the Apollo 11's command module had only 64k of iron-core memory, and it took men to the moon and back. Are petabytes in your future? How can your organization uphold Agile...

Servers are killing your productivity. Rather than building better software for your users, you end up constantly distracted by maintaining computers. Wasn't the "cloud" supposed to fix this? It sounded so promising until we realized it was just renting VMs in someone else's datacenter. We couldn't escape "servers". Until now...

In this session, developers will learn how to build microservices without servers, using modern “...

This talk proposes and presents a modern, unified architecture for the data stored in and applications running on Hadoop and other open source big data infrastructure.

Building and running production applications in the Hadoop ecosystem is often a long and challenging process filled with slow development cycles and painful production operations. Traditional development tools and techniques are missing from the Hadoop ecosystem...

Hardware Transactional Memory (HTM) is here. Again. It has finally become a common feature in commodity server hardware platforms, and JVMs are gearing up to support it. But what will we do with HTM? This session will explore the underlying mechanics that power HTM on current platforms, focusing on things developers need to understand when contemplating the use of HTM in new and existing code. We will discuss and demonstrate new speculative and optimistic locking mechanisms enabled by HTM,...
