Keynote: John Willis - Breaking Bad Equilibrium
A study in what "Bad Equilibrium" looks like in an organization.  Borrowing concepts from the fields of study of financial and economic dislocation (discontinuities), cognitive phscology and game theory.  What if we cross pollinate ideas from other disciplines to help us understand and recognize systemic organizational issues in what Andrew Sahfer calls a "Pareto Inefficient Nash Equilibrium" (I will explain this in the session).  Once identified, look to capitalize on these dislocation gaps to create competitive organizational performance.  As a bonus, we will be using some examples from Micheal Lewis' Moneyball to show how a famous "Bad Equilibrium" in baseball was used by a small few to change the game forever.

Keynote: Damon Edwards - Self-Service Operations: Because Failure Still Happens
Deployment is a solved problem. Sure there is still work to be done, but the DevOps community has successfully proven that anyone can both scale deployment automation and distribute the capability to execute deployments. Now, we have to turn our attention to the next critical constraint: What happens after deployment?

We all know that failure is inevitable and is coming our way at any moment. How do we respond quickly and effectively to those failures? What works when there is just a small set of teams or an isolated system to manage will quickly break down when the organization grows in size and complexity. But on the other hand, what has been commonly practiced in large-scale enterprises is proving to be too cumbersome, too silo dependent, and simply too slow for today's business needs. 

How do we rapidly respond to incidents and recover complex interdependent systems while working within an equally complex and interdependent organization? How do Ops teams embrace the DevOps and Agile inspired demand for speed while maintaining quality and control?

This talk examines the trial-and-error lessons learned by some forward-thinking enterprises who are currently streamlining how they:
  • Resolve incidents
  • Reduce friction between teams
  • Divide up operational responsibilities
  • Improve the quality of their ongoing operations (and organizational learning)

Automate your Azure Infrastructure with ARM Templates

Azure is a great platform because you can quickly create the infrastructure the need to support your applications. As you start duplicating infrastructure across environments or need to make changes, you need a way to automate that process and track changes.

This session will introduce you to the concept of Infrastructure as Code, introduce ARM templates to define your Azure environments, show you how to create ARM templates from Visual Studio and use Visual Studio Team Services as a version control system for your templates. I will then show you how to automatically deploy your infrastructure and code to Azure by using VSTS’s build and release management functionality.

You will learn about ARM template creation and automation, including how to automate deployments and how to track infrastructure and application changes

Keynote: Theo Schlossnagle - Reanimating DevOps to build things that work
One of the central themes of DevOps is applying software engineering techniques to operations work so that operations people could have better things: CI/CI/infra as code/repeatable builds/code reviews/etc. And while DevOps, in general, is much larger in concept than that one initiative and set of goals, people are are still stuck on that. We consistently see software delivered that isn't operable. DevOps must be reanimated with the mission of applying operations engineering techniques to software engineering work, so that DevOps can live on.

The push train is Etsy's system for coordinating code pushes and incident response. It's the company's human-centric secret to continuous delivery at scale.

There have been talks on the technical details of deploying 60 times per day, but the rituals involved have not been adequately described. As a result, many other companies copy the tools without the folk model. The results are sub-optimal. This talk is the missing manual.

Don't worry about servers, but still worry about metrics: FaaS measurement fundamentals
Function-as-a-service (FaaS) platforms like Amazon Lambda, Azure Functions, or Google Cloud Functions are being experimented with in many projects. While it’s certainly hyped, there are plenty of success stories from teams that have created massively scalable, low-cost systems with serverless computing components. It’s less well understood, however, how to build fast functions from performance data when traditional infrastructure, server, and application metrics are unavailable. This talk is about collecting and using serverless computing metrics—and a little bit of data scraped from the /proc filesystem—to build more resilient functions.

The goal of this talk is to educate audience members on how to better operate serverless functions and attempt to demystify common serverless performance problems like cold starts and wide variations in performance depending on platform and language runtime. While an intermediate-level talk, it’s also appropriate for people who have little exposure to function-as-a-service platforms.

Since our APIs were released, our customers have been asking for ways to automate their CDN configuration management so they can integrate with their own deployment and testing processes. Although the configurations may be versioned in the system itself, treating these configurations as code in an SCM gives more opportunities for integrating changes and pushing them through the pipeline.

* Describe the powerful configuration system our customers can access using our APIs
* Demonstrate the commands to push a new configuration to staging and production
* Talk about the pain points for our customers
* ... and then (ta-da!) walk through the toolkit we've created for our customers, which we're integrating with Jenkins, Chef and Puppet

The toolkit has many features:
* Written in Node.js
* Library with convenience functions for most common tasks
* Command line utility
* Gulp integration for automation and integration with DevOps toolsets

User Group - Austin Azure Meetup - Azure PaaS and continuous delivery
You will learn the principles and practices in using a continuous delivery pipeline with the modern version Microsoft Azure and the DevOps tools built for the platform. You will see how to stitch together Visual Studio Team Services with Azure PaaS components in order to create a software environment that flies! DevOps is a term representing the convergence of development and operations. Both the development and operations communities like to own the term, so it has accumulated multiple meanings. With the Agile Manifesto, developers have jettisoned annual software releases for processes that allow releasing software multiple times per day. To accomplish this, teams use rigorous suites of automated tests to ensure that every change to the software is a solid step forward rather than an accidental step backward.

Driving Technical Change
Ever been to a conference, get inspired, try to bring what you learned back to the office, only to be stymied by co-workers who aren't interested in rocking the status quo? It turns out that people tend to resist change in patterns, and like any pattern they can be overcome by using other people's experiences with those skeptics. This session will teach you how to identify the skeptics, how to counter them, and give you a strategic framework to convince your whole office.

Keeping Up - Modern Software Security
Development has drastically changed over the last decade and ushered in new requirements, standards, and challenges for security professionals as well as security-minded developers, alike. Microservices replaced the monolith. Continuous Integration and Deployment replaced weeks of phased planning and QA. Cloud technology gave developers the ability to code infrastructure and unshackled us from rigorous reviews and the dreaded system administrator.

This shift in architecture, code bases, toolchains, and methodologies requires an entirely different approach in order to effectively secure software products. Jack Mannino and Ken Johnson have worked for various organizations, witnessed development changes as they’ve unfolded over the last 10 years, and had to adapt. In their current roles, they lead a software security firm whose approach and experiences can be shared to help you better tackle modern secure software development.

This talk will show examples of tackling security in microservices, code bases, and cloud computing architecture with examples ranging from Spark, Docker, DC/OS, AWS, CI/CD to security tooling such as security-centric unit-tests and tackling IoT protocols such as MQTT.

In this presentation, the presenters will discuss the challenges associated with securing microservices and present solutions to make security a seamless and frictionless part of scaling your architecture. Securely sharing secrets between services is important, and we’ll examine open source and AWS related tools to achieve this. We will demonstrate how to build authentication and authorization into a microservice architecture.

Security tooling is an important part of any security program but in the fast-paced and changing landscape of web, mobile, and IoT protocols and methodologies our tooling must evolve. The presenters will share their approaches to tackling IoT security testing and building automation into the CI/CD pipeline in order to detect software issues before they reach production.

Cloud architecture has empowered developers and given them the ability to build infrastructure in seconds. However, many organizations have experienced disastrous consequences as a result of insecure practices. This presentation will demonstrate the effective monitoring and hardening techniques the speakers have employed in order to secure AWS environments such as the use of CloudWatch & Lambda, STS & MFA, and Config.

Jack and Ken will share their team's thoughts, experiences, and solutions gained over the course of many years and many customer engagements to help your organization tackle both current as well as the next wave of application security challenges.

User Group - Microservices and Containers Austin - UniK: Unikernel compiler and runtime
As next generation containers, unikernels are an executable image that can run natively on a hypervisor without the need for a separate operating system. Just like containers, unikernels need packaging and orchestration.

Unik is an open source project providing compilation of libraries and applications into unikernels - lightweight bootable disk images). Unik also functions as an orchestration system for unikernels, handling unikernel scheduling and health monitoring.

We’ll walk through a project overview and demo of how Unik integrates as a backend to Cloud Foundry, as a runtime engine for Kubernetes, compute driver for OpenStack and other platforms. Unik utilizes a simple Docker-like command line interface, making building unikernels as easy as building containers.
