Time Speaker Synopsis
09:15 - 10:00 - Saanich Room Dan Zentgraf DevOps and the Database Bottleneck - Educational talk focused on sharing my learning about the core issues and principles associated accelerating database change management in CI/CD at large enterprises. Participants will come away with a basic understanding of common approaches and their pitfalls.
09:15 - 10:00 - Oak Bay Stephen Wise Deliver Business Value Through Code - These days, you probably have a mix of manual and automated processes with endless choices; and the DevOps thing just didn’t seem to catch on like you thought it would. I’ll walk through how to pull yourself out of a DevOps rut and how to deliver business value through code.
10:00 - 10:50 - Saanich Room Steven Kurylo, Aurora Walker, Curtis StPierre Let’s talk about release cadence - Steven, Aurora, and Curtis will talk about, and engage with you, on release cadences and their benefits and challenges. This is a real world look into what companies are doing, and hopefully you’ll share your stories too.
10:00 - 10:50 - Oak Bay Cleosson Souza With more and more Data Science teams collaborating in the same DevOps pipelines we’re working on, misalignment issues tend to emerge (déjà vu?). We’ll describe alignment techniques we have successfully used, as well results of our research on infrastructure to support this precious type of workload
11:00 - 11:50 - Saanich Room Fawzy Manaa The DevOps First Amendment - As DevOps is gaining traction in the enterprise, there’s an influx of bad DevOps execution in the name of DevOps principles. From overly restrictive pipeline patterns to blocking developers from experimentation and self-enablement, new capabilities are built, but the spirit of DevOps is sacrificed.
11:00 - 11:50 - Oak Bay Neil Peterson Deployment and management in the age of cloud distributed applications - Application architecture is evolving to include managed cloud services. Deployment and management of these application brings a new set of considerations. This talk will detail these considerations and demonstrate emerging options for deployment and management of cloud integrated applications.
13:20 - 14:10 - Saanich Room Chris Van Tuin A DevOps State of Mind: Managing Microservices + Databases with Kubernetes - Managing Microservices + Database migrations in a CI/CD pipeline with Kubernetes
13:20 - 14:10 - Oak Bay John Esser Double, Double, Toil and Trouble! Top SRE Practices for DevOps - Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) originated at Google as a discipline and set of practices to operationalize and scale its services. We will outline how to form an SRE discipline and explain the top SRE practices teams can adopt to operate their services. SRE is NOT operations as usual!
14:30 - 15:30 - Saanich Room Thor Wolpert Moving Gov’t Support Teams to SRE Practices, and Visioning to WardelyMaps - It isn’t the initial vision or employee skills that is wrong, it’s how the applications supported and evolve.

The Registry is breaking the cycle of build and replace by using WardelyMaps to manage the lifecycle and progression of services, while continuously improving via an SRE approach.

15:30 - 16:30 - Saanich Room Chris Van Tuin A DevOps State of Mind: Continuous Security with Kubernetes - Is your organization ready to address the security risks with containers for your DevOps environment? In this presentation, you’ll learn about best practices for the top security risks in your container environment and how to automate and integrate security in your DevOps CI/CD pipeline.
